Q: What kind of food do you offer?

A: At The Bull, we have a love of ‘doing things properly’. That’s why we work with local suppliers to source the very freshest ingredients – from our milk, sourced from a local Suffolk dairy, or our mangetout, grown in our kitchen garden, we know how lucky we are to have the Suffolk coast and countryside on our doorstep, and we want to share that with you. As well as fabulous food, we have a selection of delectable drinks for you to try, including a carefully curated wine list which includes some gems from the English wine market, as well as a huge range of wines from around the globe. We also boast one of the best top shelf selections in East Anglia, with some truly unique spirits on offer, including rare Armagnacs, stunning rums, fine liqueurs, and a selection of whiskies, including Japanese, Irish, Scottish and American varieties. To find out more, explore our wine list, or view the full ‘Imbible’, just use the link below – or give us a call on 01359 269820.
