Lots of different tastes and flavours.For my main course I enjoyed lobster with a garlic sauce ,absolutely delicious.My partner choose steak which he said was overly seasoned.The dessert menu could have been better,I chose tarte tartan which was pleasant ,while my other half had banana fritters with toffee sauce.

Absolutely fantastic meal, exceptional quality food, lovely cozy restaurant and wonderful staff. I would highly recommend the quail starter and the lobster main, but I think whatever meal you choose would not disappoint! One of the best restaurants I have been to.

Breathtaking food; cosy and stylish interior; quirky, friendly and attentive staff. Not for a veggie or a squeamish meat eater (lamb's tongue or pig's cheeks, anyone?) but I am fairly timid when it comes to strange cuts and I always find something. Breckland muntjac (deer) last night was stupendous. Amazing combinations of flavours, perfectly proportioned portions and good choice of... More

Took my partner here for her birthday and we were not disappointed. Nice to see such a lovely restaurant hidden in the heart of a town infested by chain restaurants throughout the high-streets. The service could not be faulted while the menu excelled itself beyond expectation. The wine menu gratefully complemented this fine dining menu with plenty of choice for... More

Peas Porridge has the potential to be an excellent restaurant, but has one or two issues that brought down my marking. The food is, without doubt, very imaginative, using ingredients that you don't often see in restaurants in interesting combinations. I think I was unlucky in choosing the duck tagine, which I found rather bland and only saved by the... More

My husband and I took my sister to Pea Porridge for a treat. We had heard very good things and were really looking forward to our evening. We weren't disappointed, the food was delicious, great staff, lovely renovation. We shared some Nduja and Padron peppers for nibbles, all had the crab starter and then pigs cheek, duck and steak mains.... More

A very expensive night out, but for a special occasion or a treat once in a while so worth it. The quality of this restaurant is unmatched in Bury St Edmunds. Not for people with simple tastes, dishes can be quite unusual.

My sister and her husband asked if we would like to try pea porridge while we stayed with them in Bury, and I'm so glad they did!! The evening from start to finish was beyond excellent!! I are the goats curd starter, sublime! Followed by the pigs cheek main course. My wife had the mackerel starter followed by the duck... More
