A restaurant "transformed with a touch of class" from a former coaching inn has been added to a top foodie guide. 

The Good Food Guide regularly adds new entries detailing some of the best places to relax and enjoy a meal across the UK. 

The Suffolk in Aldeburgh was added to the guide this month after opening in the coastal town two years ago. 

It achieved an overall rating of good but was noted to have a very good feeling of warmth and strength of recommendation. 

The addition to the foodie guide comes after the restaurant was named among the best in the UK for its "seductive pull of garlic."

The guide said "we love the people and we love the place" referring to owner George Pell and head chef Tom Payne. 

It continued: "And how refreshing to be offered a straightforward carte with a couple of specials, something to share and some classic desserts rather than the prevailing 'taster' format."

The Suffolk is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm to 2pm for lunch and from 6pm to 9pm for dinner.
