This place has a lovely atmosphere and has been serving quality food with a personal touch since the 1980's, we have been several times and it is one of our favourite places for a special occasion celebration.

It was our second visit whilst visiting family in Bury St Edmunds and six of us are here. The Welcome was again very nice and the service was excellent. The food was superb and the beamed restaurant a lovely place to eat. A lovely place to eat and worth a short detour from the A14.

Went on Saturday evening whilst in the area for the weekend. This restaurant had been recommended to us and met up with our expectations. Warm welcome upon arrival and was able to sit in the lounge area in front of a roaring fire, where we were able to have a pre dinner drink whilst browsing the menu. Canapés were served... More

A really nice intimate restaurant that serves good food and has a good wine selection. Obviously not cheap but well worth the money. Went on a Sunday at lunchtime so the menu was cut down a bit. Still plenty to choose from. Served well and friendly staff. Would like to go back for an evening when next in the area.

Although the food was superb, there was no background music, so the restaurant lacked any atmosphere.

Having lived in Suffolk for 20+ years and eat out regularly we have missed going north of the A14 and hence not visited Thoballds. Don't make that mistake - go north and see what you can get from this gem of a restaurant. Turbot A1 with just the correct balance of tasty risotto, local steak with a delightful well constituted...

This little gem of a restaurant has been in business since 1982 and is run beautifully by the husband and wife owners after whom it is named. It is several years since our last visit and I think our first in the summer months. The whole experience was joyous and deserved to be shared by more diners. It was a... More

Very nice meal, all courses were very good, and the service was excellent. They have a hidden gem at the back, so if the weather is warm, ask to sit outside before your meal.

We went for dinner last Friday evening, we live near-bye, but for some reason, we haven't been here for 10 years or so. We had starters, mains and desserts.. The twice baked cheese soufflé was historic and we loved presentation and taste of the main course and the taste and range of potatoes and vegetables. Without question, the best restaurant... More
