Good food in an interesting building

We had a lovely meal here. The restaurant has not changed a lot over the years and the menu might be considered a little-old-fashioned by some, but I had the liver and it was cooked beautifully. The service was excellent and it's easy to park on the High street outside and we had a great evening.

We have lived in the area for many years and for some reason not visited Theobalds before now. We have been missing out! The food and service are excellent. We have now visited twice and will definitely be back. We enjoy eating out and this is now high on our list. Well done and thank you.

This was our 2nd treat to Theobalds and yet again we have been totally impressed with the friendly, fine service and food. From the minute you arrive you are made to feel very special. The resturant is run by Geraldine and her husband and they certainly have everything running so smoothly. We all succumbed to the cheese soufflé to start... More

Staying at Ixworth House for the night (excellent B&B just round the corner from the restaurant) we booked into Theobalds for their 5 course tasting menu for dinner. The restaurant itself is lovely, set in a very cosy and quaint building with lots of interesting nooks and crannies and impressive windows to the front. The five course menu was delicious,... More

Our second visit whilst staying in the village. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal, freshly cooked local produce. Very quaint restaurant and has a good atmosphere. Will be returning very soon. Would definitely recommend.

If you go to Theobalds restaurant it's not just food you get but an experience... We were made to feel so welcome and special, the atmosphere was calm, relaxing and wonderful. The food I can't rate highly enough absolutely beautiful, from the home made appetisers to the lovely mini rolls delicious, to the rich (in a good way) tasty mains,... More

The new 5 course tasting menu was excellent and very good value for money. Booked for a special birthday we hadn't been to Theobolds for a couple of years and we'd forgotten how lovely it is, spacious yet cosy and faultless service and attention.

Our first visit to Theobalds was a special occasion on a Fri lunchtime. The weather was perfect for drinks in the pretty courtyard. The service was exemplary. No rushing - no delay. The staff were friendly and professional. The food was nicely presented, very tasty, well cooked and in just the right amounts. We couldn't find anything that we thought... More

We dined at Theobalds on a Thursday night for our 10th wedding anniversary, the setting was lovely and quiet, no obtrusive music whaling away in the background and with only 2 other couples in the restaurant it made for a very pleasant and peaceful dining experience. The hostess was pleasant and attentive with a drink on arrival while we looked... More

We have been here many times over the years and would describe it as, by far the best food in Suffolk! The service is second to none! The food is always cooked to perfection, and they change the menu to suit the season! I would highly recommend it to everyone.
