Excellent little restaurant. We were recommended to visit the Brasserie but only now know why. Brilliant atmosphere, very helpful staff and the highest quality meal. Highly recommended

Nice food and good portions. I must admit that they do great deals for lunchtimes/early birds. I would happily go back but it didn't wow me.

Today we decided to visit one of our favourite eateries in Suffolk . We cannot believe that a change of ownership just two months ago could have resulted in such a disastrous experience! The starter of crayfish and prawn cocktail was just ok, not sumptuous and fresh and succulent as it was before. We then moved on to the main... More

We came across this restaurant by chance and as it looked inviting, decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed - the place was clean, friendly and above all, the loos were good. The food, which was cooked to order, was excellent. Easy to find, The Brasserie is opposite the entrance to the Buttermarket car park.

It's little things that make the difference. Went in at lunchtime, wanted something quick and no fuss-saw special offer menu in window, walked in. Stood there, no one said hello / greeted me and so thought ok I will move on and try something else (didn't want the fuss). Walked out the door and someone actually noticed and spoke to... More

The welcome we received was very friendly and that approach stayed for the entire evening. The staff were happy to be there and that showed in their service which was second to none. The atmosphere was relaxed and the table positions just right so you didn't feel isolated but could be intimate meaning it's ideal for romantic couples or groups... More

Dad and I went for lunch here today and what a nice surprise. I understand its under new management, who have already made some alterations. I had camembert and cranberry sauce, Dad had prawn and crayfish salad. Both were really very good. I had ravioli which was a good size portion and very very nice. Dad had T bone steak... More
