While squirrel has been popping up on the menu of adventurous restaurants across Suffolk in recent months, it appears that the people of Sudbury have even more exotic tastes.
The White Horse pub in North Street hosts a weekly Wednesday steak night. But in addition to the usual beef, more daring diners have been sampling kangaroo, bison, crocodile, camel and even zebra.
According to pub manager Ed Keogh, the exotic meats have been “very well received”.
He said: “People seem to get quite excited about trying unusual things – probably spurred on a bit by TV programmes like I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
“We’ve been surprised how well they have gone down, not just with the guys, particularly the bison, which is quite like fillet steak.”

The meats are sourced by JBS Family Butchers in Borehamgate Precinct which hit the headlines last year for its window displays of dead wild animals.

Butcher John Sawyer said: “This is a country town and there is certainly a taste for something different in Sudbury.
“We are known for selling game and we sell around 100 rabbits a week. If we could source enough squirrels we would sell just as many of those – the demand is there because it’s organic, free range and comes from the wild.”
