New licensee celebrates AA rosette

A WEST Suffolk pub has been awarded an AA Rosette for the quality of its food.

The tenancy of the Cadogan Arms at Ingham, near Bury St Edmunds, which is owned by Greene King, was recently taken on by David Marjoram who also runs the One Bull and the Beerhouse in Bury.

Mr Marjoram commended staff at the Cadogan for their efforts. “I have an outstanding team that deliver food prepared to a level not usually found in a pub,” he said.

“I felt there was a real gap in the market at the quality end for families and I’m hoping the award will increase awareness of our excellent food offering we have worked so hard to achieve.”

The team at the Cadogan, where head chef Ricky Calder is in charge of the kitchen, cure their own bacon, make sausages and smoke their own salmon.

Stephen Jones, a hotel and restaurant inspector at the AA, said: “This is a huge achievement and not to be underestimated.

“The Cadogan offers good quality locally-sourced food in a stylish and relaxed environment and the team there obviously pay care and attention to the end product.”
