Nothing says autumn quite like crispy pork crackling and roast potatoes. Or maybe settling in by the fire and sharing a molten camembert and bottle of red. Or, a juicy steak straight off the coals or a burger stacked nice and high. Not forgetting the most popular dish of the colder season, the sticky toffee pudding! Our autumn menus are in full swing and ready to be taste-tested by you...
Think fluffy roast potatoes, giant Yorkies, lashings of gravy and plentiful amounts of seasonal veg' as well as the main event, a joint (or two) to share.
From our Host Your Roast at The Feathers where you can choose a joint of meat for the table; to a sharing board of roasted chateaubriand, thyme roasted chicken and sausage meat stuffing at The Rupert Brooke; to The Packhorse Inn treacle glazed short horn fillet of beef, ox cheek slow cooked in Nethergate ale and roasted bone marrow. Gather family and friends together for a super Sunday lunch after good-ol' stroll and tuck in!

Our popular Wednesday offer continues at The Weeping Willow, The Carpenters Arms and The Rupert Brooke. Whether you're looking ahead to family birthday celebrations this autumn or you're just wanting to catch up with friends after work, Wednesday is the new Friday! Tuck into two courses from our main menu and a cocktail for £30.
If you'd prefer to put the breaks on midweek and 'Wine Down' with a hearty supper and a half price bottle of wine take a look at Wine Down Wednesday at The Black Lion in Long Melford, or Wine Down Thursday at The Three Blackbirds in Woodditton. Choose a main course with either a starter or dessert and enjoy any bottle of wine from our wine list at half price when all guests in your party order a main course and a starter or dessert.
Another autumn favourite has to be a freshly made pie with a rich filling, a side of creamy mash, lashings of gravy and seasonal veg, all washed down with pint of Ale. Where can you find a great pie and a pint for £17? The answer, The Cricketers in Clavering every Monday night.
FROM THE GRILL
There's nothing better than your favourite cut of locally sourced, rare-breed steak, served with a choice of sides, salad and sauce. Whether you're sharing a Châteaubriand at The Packhorse or tucking into a 35-day dry-aged 8oz Ribeye steak at The Feathers, our grills are fired up for the autumn.
How does a Beef Patty, Monterey Jack cheese, caramelised onions, smoked streaky bacon, burger sauce and gherkins; sound? Sink your teeth into Burger Shack Friday's at The Feathers and choose from three burger specials with fries and slaw. Or head to The Globe's Burger and Grill night, also on Friday nights.
