Suffolk’s Tuddenham Mill wins prestigious Editors’ Award by The Good Food Guide 2015
22nd September 2014
The Good Food Guide recognise excellence across the restaurant industry in the country and grant those that deserve the highest recognition. Editors’ Awards are presented to only eight carefully selected dining establishments and chefs in the UK, who have particularly impressed The Good Food Guide editors.
The Good Food Guide Editor Elizabeth Carter has said, “It would take a frosty heart not to be bewitched by Tuddenham Mill’s swans-and-cygnets prettiness - and a jaded palate not to be thrilled by (relatively) new Head Chef Lee Bye’s cooking. Bye, who steps up after two years as Sous Chef, has steered the menu away from foraged ingredients to produce accessible, enjoyable food such as soft-as-you-like black bream with gently warming dhal and crisp lightly battered mussels, or tender bavette steak with triple cooked chips.”
Tuddenham Mill’s set lunch menu offers a mix of local and British produce, working strongly within the seasons and focusing on taste and balance across the menu. The set lunch menu is priced at £15.50 for two courses and £19.50 for three courses. Elizabeth also adds that Tuddenham Mill’s set lunch menu is one of the best value deals in Suffolk.
Lee Bye has been Head Chef at Tuddenham Mill for only seven months and is delighted to receive the award. Lee has said, “To get the Best Set Lunch Award in my first Head Chef role was a very proud moment for me and the team, who all have worked with great focus everyday to help achieve the success. To be selected by The Good Food Guide’s editor Elizabeth Carter as the number one spot for lunch in the whole of the UK shows how far we have come in such a small amount of time.”
Tuddenham Mill has also achieved The Good Food Guide’s score rating of 5 (the highest out of all Suffolk entries in The Good Food Guide 2015) which indicates exact cooking techniques and a degree of ambition as well as showing balance and depth of flavour in dishes.
Throughout September and October Tuddenham Mill will be celebrating the award by giving diners a return to dine offer for all guests who come and try the set lunch.
The prestigious guide published its latest 64th edition in September 2015 and remains the best selling restaurant guide in the UK. Each year The Good Food Guide reviews the best dining experiences in the country and is completely rewritten and compiled from readers' feedback and anonymous inspections.
