Cafe Cru Restaurant at The Imperial Hotel, Great Yarmouth
This is the restaurant of The Imperial Hotel, which is Great Yarmouth’s only 4 Star Hotel. The Hotel has comfortable bedrooms, a stylish gourmet restaurant and one of the finest wine lists in the region. Set in a relaxed area on Great Yarmouth seafront overlooking the beach and sea, this family-run 4 star Hotel has been welcoming guests for generations and attracts people from all around the area for memorable meals at its Café Cru Restaurant. Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used by three of Norfolk’s award winning chefs who offer delicious modern British cooking. The food is complemented by the service which is always professional and courteous.
This has been a very favourite haunt of Anglia for years. We aim to spend a weekend there every second year, and this pleasure dates back to about the mid 1980’s.
Le Talbooth, Dedham
For beautiful food and luxurious accommodation, Le Talbooth and it’s associated hotel Maison Talbooth, are not to be missed. Situated in a delightful rural location at Dedham, close to Colchester, it is easily accessible from the A14 or A12.
The Bell Inn in Horndon-0n-the-Hill, Essex
From its earliest days in the 15th Century when the village was a centre for trade, The Bell served as a coaching inn, as can well be seen from the courtyard and the archway with its gallery above. Stage coaches would carry farmers to and from the corn markets at Aldgate, as well as other travellers to and from the metropolis, and to the boats at Tilbury which crossed the Thames. The pub has a long history of accolades such as "Food Pub of the Year 2003" as recorded in the Morning Advertiser.
Stuart Fay is our new Professional Member and we enjoyed a really good lunch there in Spring this year - the canapes and vin d’honneur and the sunshine made it a very memorable occasion!
The White Pheasant
With an emphasis on locally sourced produce alongside award winning wines, this family owned restaurant offers everything from light lunches or a traditional Sunday lunch to the finest A La Carte menu. The seasonal changing taster menu is proving very popular, not only with customers but fellow Chef’s & food critics alike. The team are very proud to have achieved 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence for two successive years & No1 restaurant in the Ely area & a top 10 spot in Cambridgeshire, along with a 5 star food hygeine rating.
Having initially trained at the White Pheasant in 2005, Head Chef Calvin Holland went on to cook at some of the UK’s finest multi-rosette & Michelin Star restaurants, only to return to the White Pheasant in August 2013 as Head Chef and Proprietor.
