Excellent food and drinks, very friendly and attentive service. We've really enjoyed our dinner at Pea Porridge, I knew that this is not a big place and they get booked up quickly for weekends but very polite gentleman managed to get us a table on a short notice. We shared starter of foie gras and duck liver and it was... More

Interesting food (I wish I'd tried the snails), beautifully prepared, in a cosy, informal setting. I'll be back.

Delicious food - original and cooked to a very high standard; superb staff - friendly and informative; good decor. This was our 4th visit and we shall return! Wonderful to find a little restaurant producing such good food in our area (not quite our local though, it's a 45 min drive!). If you haven't yet been, go!

Fabulous evening all around. Warm greeting and table suitably arranged for a group gathering. Menu choice quite amazing and delivered beautifully. Truly a nice venue, evening and food.

Peas Porridge's food is almost certainly the best i have ever had in the UK. It has a varied menu with ample choice and a wine selection to die for. The waitresses were very helpful and informative when selecting order. I find it increasingly harder to find a restaurant that cooks food better than i could do at home. But... More

We live forty miles away from Bury St Edmunds so had not been to Pea Porridge for a long time. It is as good as we remember! An interesting menu (my wife had rabbit terrine), and the food is beautifully cooked and presented. Highly recommend the banana beignets for dessert! If only we lived nearer.... Not cheap, lunch worked out... More

One of the best eating places in Bury St. Edmunds. Unusual menu that changes frequently. It maybe small but so special for an interesting meal.
