Snape Maltings is a favourite place to visit again and again. It is a world-famous venue for music, specialising in classical music. At the same time they serve excellent food and it is a shopaholics delight.

Met some friends for brunch whilst visiting Suffolk. We decided to try it as looked promising, couple of cafes, shops and places to walk with our dogs. Brunch can only be described as average at best. We ordered panini and they were a let down....More

Great place to go shopping for unusual things for the home. Some lovely and very unusual furniture and furnishings. Great cookware section too. Not a fan of the coffee shop that’s located upstairs in the main building!
