Treat yourself to a night away this weekend, especially when the weather promises to be glorious. Fingers crossed! We have a Best Garden room, with king size bed, available for this Saturday, 7th May with a 3-course a la carte dinner and our award-winning breakfast included. Dinner is a free choice of dishes and breakfast offers such delights as Orford-smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, and French toast with crisp bacon & maple syrup, as well as the full English. Just 285.00 per couple occupying the room – and don’t forget there’s a semi-private terrace to sit out and enjoy the sun.
This coming weekend, Friday, 6th and Saturday, 7th May, we have a Best Garden and a Best Terrace (30 – as show in photograph) available for a lazy dinner, bed and breakfast stay – that’s you for you to be lazy, not the food by the way. Enjoy the comfort of a Hypnos 6-ft wide bed, a 3-course a la carte dinner each evening (with free choice and no supplements), a scrumptious cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, and lots of lolling, walking or historic sight-seeing in between …
The rate per couple occupying a Best Garden room for both nights, with all the above, is 570.00 and for the Best Terrace room it’s 640.00. Please call us on 01394 450205 to book or make further enquiries. (N.B. Orford Ness is now open on Saturdays.)
Suffolk asparagus, harbinger of all the delightful summer produce to come, will be at its best in May – which is very handy because that’s when we start getting wonderful Suffolk-landed lobster, too. A serendipitous alliance by any standard.
Our ASPARAGUS & LOBSTER 2-night package is available for your delectation from Sunday, 1st May, up to and including Thursday, 2nd June, excluding the weekends. The package includes a 2-course a la carte dinner on both evenings and full English breakfast each morning.
Best of all, you will see local asparagus and lobster on the menu in some guise or another. Of course, if you prefer your asparagus plain with melted butter that will always be available and, similarly, while lobster might show up in a summery ragout with asparagus, broad beans, peas and chervil you are welcome to pre-order a whole lobster if you prefer.*
In between scoffing some gorgeous food, why not explore Minsmere and neighbouring Dunwich where there are lots of interesting bird-related activities going on. Better still, bring back your tickets and we will refund the cost of entrance for two.
The rate for the 2-night DB&B package, per room per couple is:
Good House 430.00
Better House and Courtyard 510.00
Best Garden 540.00
Best House and Terrace 610.00
* please be aware that lobster might not be available if adverse weather conditions prevent fishermen getting to the pots. And, if you would like a whole (about 500g) lobster to yourself, we need three working days notice – there’s no surcharge or supplement (how generous we are). Serving suggestions are Thermidor-style, with garlic butter or as a cold salad. Finally, if shellfish is not your thing, we always have plenty of other fish and meat dishes available, including well-aged sirloin steak.
Do give us a call on 01394 450205 to book your stay, or to make further enquiries.
