Suffolk’s first Michelin Star winner!

Hot off the presses, the winners have just been announced and we're delighted that a Bury St Edmunds restaurant has gained Suffolk's first star!

Massive congratulations to Justin Sharp and his team at small, but perfectly formed restaurant Pea Porridge, which has earned a place in the culinary history books as the first Suffolk restaurant to be given a Michelin Star. Justin and his wife Jurga opened the charming hidden gem 11 years ago and it has held a Michelin Bib Gourmand for several years already. The guide said: “Justin Sharp, chef-owner of this bohemian style neighbourhood restaurant, decided to alter his approach during lockdown. His daily changing menu of North African, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes sees many ingredients cooked over charcoal, beech, oak, birch or pine cones.”

No introduction needed for Daniel Clifford’s Victorian riverside restaurant, which retains its two star status with its offering of ever-changing and inventive haute cuisine.
