Two recently-reopened gastro pubs have been named among the region's best restaurants.

The list of nine restaurants was put together by restaurant reservation service OpenTable and highlighted the most popular establishments among diners.

In Suffolk, The Bull Freehouse in Troston, near Bury St Edmunds, and The Greyhound Inn in Pettistree were included in the list.

The Bull Freehouse was acquired by current owners Ben Davenport and Sam Darling in 2020.

After making the most of the pandemic by remodelling and decorating the pub, The Bull is now one of west Suffolk's most enticing foodie spots.

Our review published in 2021 praised the "excellent food, produced with passion" and the "idyllic" countryside setting.

The Greyhound Inn reopened in late 2022 with the incoming owners having a "desire to create a toasty atmosphere and a menu led by honest, traditional, hyper-seasonal cooking".

In March, it was named among the "best of the best" in the UK by OpenTable and was one of just two sites in the East of England to receive the honour.

In January, The Sunday Times' style magazine labelled it a "posh pub" and encouraged readers to visit.
