I travel on the A14 regularly and head straight for this farm shop. It opens at 9am but be aware the carpark gets very busy, very quickly. Get there early as the scones are brought out freshly baked. I love scones and these are simply magnificent. The scones are fresh, crumbly and baked to perfection. The Tiptree jam and loose... More

Have been coming here for years! What can I say? Delicious! Never had anything but great food here! Veggie breakfast is perfect-no pretend sausages just eggs, toast & loads of veg! The carnivore rates the meaty breakfast very highly!! Have also eaten the hummus platter, mushroom burger, various yummy quiche & occasionally one of the decadent desserts! Always served with...

Staff in the shop are fantastic as well, and meat from the butchers always go down well especially for barbecues!

Excellent Sunday lunch, very friendly efficient service fair value. For a cafe venue it punches way above it's weight. Bought our tea on the way out.

My family and I visited for breakfast; the food was nice, nothing special. They claim the food is local produce but I'm not convinced. The service was a bit slow and haphazard. The puddings were incredibly expensive, over £9 for two. Very poor value. We'll stick with Simpsons at Fordham.

We have been regulars at La Hogue for some time now, and up until last Friday the food, waitresses and service have been very good. However, I think the combination as above must have tipped them into overload last Friday. They were very busy, which is nice. We went in the "garden room" which although it does not say "no...

I had a 'Suffolk Breakfast' in the very pleasant cafe. Very nicely presented and very tasty. The staff were very pleasant too. Had great difficulty choosing a piece of strawberry cheesecake to take away for my wife (the choice is fantastic) which we ultimately shared. Delicious! The farm shop is well worth a visit too.

As we haven't been to La Hogue for Sunday lunch for a while, time to try again; telephoned to reserve a table, very courteous, arrived on time and led to our table in the Garden Room (valuably quietier). Short queue for food, chose roast turkey, and roast beef. 9.95 each. It came within about ten minutes, loads of meat, ditto... More
