Visited this week for lunch and I am so glad I did. Food was delicious - I had a buttermilk chicken wrap with fennel slaw and it was amazing. Service was great, very attentive. The waiting staff and chefs are all students and they were...brilliant! A great local restaurant, at a very reasonable price and a great way to support the students at the college! 10/10 from me!More

I have just had the pleasure of eating at Edmunds. It was excellent. The food was beautifully presented, prepared and cooked. It is definitely worth a visit. I attended with a group of ladies (19 of us on all) and the service went like clockwork....Would definitely go back again. In fact planning a visit with my husband soon.More

Eating in a restaurant attached to a catering college is an intriguing prospect. So, too, was their once-a-week themed night which promised a platter of Thai dishes on the night we visited. The first thing to say is that everyone was extremely friendly, which translated...to service that was a little unpolished. The second thing to point out is that the dining room is large, a little canteen-like, although with well-separated tables, and packed to the rafters with customers evidently eager to experience a cut-price dinner. The menu included both standard and vegan options, although I suspect we, as vegetarians, were in the minority. The starter of corn and chilli fritters were served quickly but there wasn't a trace of chilli to be tasted. One of the waiters attending our table admitted that he'd been responsible for making the fritters and seemed remarkably blase about his omission. It then took 45 minutes for a platter of four dishes to be served. The vegetable green curry had some depth of flavour, but there was a hint of nam pla (fish sauce) in the background, which clearly is neither vegetarian nor vegan. Nam pla was even more evident in the pad thai noodles, which was almost cold and, quite simply, dreadful. Satay tofu skewers were much more successful and vegetable spring rolls were passable, although the pastry was thick and chewy. The desserts had no resemblance to anything Thai and someone had turned a singular custard into plural ones. Overall, the meal was a curate's egg and we thought more effort should have been made in creating the dishes in the first place and ensuring that service could cope with the number of covers. As a training experience, Edmunds need to do more to help their students learn from their mistakes.More

The service was willing but clearly still learning .The food varied from the excellent to the quite good and that was fine by us. There was a major timing glitch but we were not in a rush .

i organised a party of 24, mainly Long Melford silver tops, to travel to the Burns Night feature menu at the Edmunds Room. Our charabanc got lost in the darkness of the West Suffolk College complex but a 'phone call to Claire, the head honcho,...soon had her outside and guiding us in. We were met at the entrance by very polite students who took our coats and showed us to our tables. We had pre-ordered our choices from the menu and place cards with those choices were on the table with wine also there ready to consume. My Haggis starter was excellent and the others on my table said their choices were also to a very high standard. I chose the pheasant main course which came as a surprise, shaped as a cylindrical piece of meat with an outer oat crust. Delicious!. Then the finish for me was the Whisky & chocolate Cremeux. if you go there and it's on the menu you have just got to have it! All our party had something different from the menu and all said their choices were excellent. I sat next to the only vegetarian in our party and her main dish was something she had never had in a restaurant before. She thoroughly enjoyed it. To sum up, the students were very efficient , friendly and attentive, Claire watched over her charges with great efficiency to the point where we asked for all students to come forward for a standing ovation from the group. We will return!More

What a lovey evening.. great atmosphere, staff were very friendly, helpful and very attentive. We went for the Vegan plant based food and we were not let down! Absolutely beautiful food! Couldn’t fault a single course! Wine was lovely too which was great and complemented...the food, really reasonably priced. Would highly recommend if you haven’t tried!More

We had a delicious Christmas dinner that was handled with professionalism and calm given how quickly restaurants have to deal with an ever changing world during the pandemic. In this instance we were a team of NHS staff that was told 2.5 hours before our...meal not to meet face to face any longer to reduce staff having to isolate. Chef Austin and his team provided our meals as take aways and we all hope to return when we have the all clear and enjoy your lovely food sitting down. Thank you so much for accommodating us - I hope we will laugh at this in years to come! What a memory.More

There is a large car park - it is attached to the college so I don't know if there are any restrictions in place during term time/school hours. Certainly a 7pm, there has never been any issue parking.
