Review on Theobald's Restaurant
'What a lovely old building - will be eating there again very soon', exclaimed a couple of Mobile Food Guide users about Simon and Geraldine Theobald's long-serving Suffolk restaurant. For more than 25 years, they have been serving skilfully crafted food in their atmospheric sixteenth-century, timber-framed property, and show no signs of slowing up.
The delightful interior comes complete with oak beams and real fires blazing away in the huge inglenooks, while summertime visitors have the bonus of a lovely garden patio for alfresco meals.
Simon's cooking follows the seasons, and his menus have a strong English slant, with some hints of warmer climes here and there. Twice-baked Cheddar cheese soufflé or pan-fried scallops with roast pepper and chive risotto might open the show, before roast partridge with braised Savoy cabbage and black pudding or steamed fillet of halibut with spinach and a shellfish sauce. Rounding things off are classic desserts such as caramelised lemon tart or creamed vanilla rice with poached pears. The wine list is a good mix of reasonably priced bottles and some finer stuff - mostly from France.
