Worth Travelling For!!

Having been invited to join friends for a Gin Taster evening at Baileys, I contemplated my 100 mile journey from Brentwood, Essex to Beccles, Suffolk, wondering if the trip would be worthwhile.

We were fortunate to book for a tasting menu during our stay in Beccles. The menu included various gin and tonics with each course!! WOW, the food was exceptional and the evening was extremely memorable. The owner (Xavier) explained the various G&T's and how they complemented the various dishes. Each of the numerous courses were impeccably presented and were stunning.... More

What can I say? Xavier is the consummate host: proud proprietor, story teller, wine & gin expert extraordinaire - this place is a delight to the senses, a rare taste of the Catalan Country with other European influences and a hidden gem in the depths of Suffolk. Not to be missed. A+

Who would have thought you could find a restaurant serving Catalan food in Beccles? Well you can and it is well worth a visit. Lovely food with a twist, who knew rhubarb caviar could taste so nice. Staff were lovely and we thourougly enjoyed our meal

There are a lot of good things about this restaurant and as many of the other reviews confirm it can / should be an oasis of excellence. However the much heralded vegetarian (they were forewarned) main course was just a slight variation of the (simple but very good) exocitic salad we had as a starter! We were with friends so... More

What a hidden Gem! We ended up trying this on a recommendation and the whole experience was superb. The food was simply exceptional, the ambience just right, the staff were amazing particularly the owner. The big surprise was the bill - we couldn't believe how reasonable it was. I could not recommend this place highly enough for dinner... Made our... More
