Please God, not too many people will learn about this local secret. Part of its charm is that it never seems too busy, probably due to meticulous planning of 'table letting' by the management. The result is that the floor staff never seem to be under too much pressure and I presume that this is also true of the kitchen.... More

Great place to eat full of charm. Good food, slightly old fashioned setting but doesn't pretend to be something it's not. Well worth a visit

I was taken to Theobald's by a friend and his Son (they live close by and are regulars) and I was blown away, loved everything about it. Theobalds would be a gem in Mayfair, never mind Ixworth. Everything about the restaurant screams quality. Every single part of every dish is both locally sourced and prepared in the restaurant kitchen including... More

We visited for the first time last Friday evening. My sister-in-law has always rated Theobalds and so she wanted to treat us for a special occasion. We were not disappointed. The staff were lovely, very friendly, made us feel really welcome. The food was delicious, my husband had the cheese souffle for starter which was fabulous, my monkfish main was... More

Have been going to Theobolds for some years and have always had good food and good service. It's an ideal place for that special occasion.

We had always made a point of visiting Theobalds over the last few years but had not been able to make our regular trip to... More

Having lived two miles way most of my life and my family still do I've eaten here again and again over the years for countless birthdays and other occasions and I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal ever and I dread to think how many times it has been. Yes it is a little old fashioned... More

We love our food and love nothing better than a great dining experience with good food and wine. We booked Theobalds on a trip adviser rating, as it was only a few miles from home. the decor is quaint and it is a little old fashioned, but lovely so - the food was amazing. my husband had sweetbreads followed by...

Having lived in the area for many years and never before dining at Thobalds we decided to give it a try for a recent anniversary. Previously we have been rather put off by the decor from the outside as it looks quite dated. Inside however, it is dated but quaintly so. It is also much more spacious than you may... More

I recently dined in Theobald's on a Friday night, two couples in the group. I was surprised at how small the place was on entry, but this was a perfect examples of great things coming in small packages We were greeted almost immediately by the chef and led out to the garden for some drinks while we waited for our...
