A Suffolk gastropub has been named among the best restaurants of the year so far by an esteemed food critic after he had "the most fabulous dish of venison" he's ever eaten.

William Sitwell, editor, writer and food critic for The Daily Telegraph, placed The Greyhound Inn, in Pettistree, near Wickham Market, sixth on the list due to a "gutsy menu" and a "terrific wine list".

Mr Sitwell described the countryside gastropub as having hearty, flavourful food delivered by a kitchen "rich in talent and conviction".

During his visit to the restaurant he had a roast rack of wild roe doe – chops and faggots with perfect veg and gravy.

The Suffolk pub was listed in The Food Guide 2024 and has also won the Gold Winner Squaremeal award and the Top 50 Gastropub award by Estrella.

The freehouse has a seasonal menu, wine list and local cask beer. 

It is open from midday Wednesday through to Sunday serving dinner from 6pm.
