Review on The Auberge

Originally called the Bull at Yaxley, this centuries-old Suffolk inn has been sympathetically transformed into a delightful country restaurant-with-rooms by current owners John and Dee Stenhouse. The building still proudly shows off its age with a steeply pitched roof and tall chimneys, while inside there are plenty of weathered beams and exposed brickwork.

By contrast the food served in the intimate dining room (which features some original beamed partitions), is in tune with current trends. To start, you might fancy warm goats' cheese salad with walnuts or chicken liver parfait with cranberry and fig chutney, while main courses could promise grilled sea bass fillets on fettuccine with roasted red pepper sauce, chicken tagine or slow-cooked Norfolk pork belly with casseroled cabbage and parsnip mash.

'Fruits de mer' is a speciality – although customers are advised to place their order 24 hours in advance. To finish, the kitchen is justly proud of its bread-and-butter pudding (served with apricot coulis); otherwise try treacle sponge with butterscotch sauce or stem ginger crème brûlée.
