Enjoy your meals in Flindor Cottage’s beamed dining room around a magnificent oval oak table with a roaring open fire in the colder months.

Breakfast choice is extensive, with a different ‘special’ cooked choice offered every day, such as grilled cold smoked whiting topped with poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Each breakfast is complemented with a wide choice of teas and coffees.

Most produce is sourced locally wherever possible, including the free range bacon and sausage from the next door village, Helmingham, and eggs from a neighbouring farm in Framsden. Jams are homemade and the honey is from Monewden hives, just a few miles away.

Evening meals

We are happy to offer evening meals, which will give you the chance to savour some of the outstanding wines from the cellar.

How about a sumptuous Sauternes with foie gras de canard followed by an elegant 1998 claret with Framsden lamb, or a bold Rioja Gran Reserva with tapas and a paella mixta?

Then finish off with local Suffolk cheeses and a glass of Taylor’s 1997.

Alternatively, a short drive from Flindor Cottage to Cretingham is the traditional village pub, The New Bell Inn, offering fine ales, good food and a welcoming open fire in the winter.
