A medieval village in Suffolk has been named among the best places in the UK for food and drink in a national survey. 

More than 9,000 members of Which? rated their favourite towns and villages for food and drink. 

Lavenham, near Sudbury, was ranked third on the list achieving four stars and a destination score of 79 percent.

Earlier this year, Southwold and Aldeburgh were named among the best seaside towns in the UK for food and drink.

The national list describes Lavenham as: "A beautiful preserved centre that has managed to resist the tide of chain shops and restaurants in other, better-known towns.

"Instead the streets are lined with independent bakers, butchers, pubs, and cafes."

Ludlow, in Shropshire, took the top spot on the list and was the only town to score a full five-star rating.
