Description: Jono and the team look forward to welcoming you to The Flying Shuttle! A Rotisserie Restaurant and Bar for Haverhill, situated at the entrance to the new Haverhill Research Park on the A1307 heading out of town towards Cambridge. The name for the restaurant came about due to the town's links with the industrialisation of weaving. From the 16th Century, weaving was an important local industry to Haverhill and it was John Kay in 1733 who invented the Flying Shuttle, a significant improvement to the looms, enabling weavers to weave faster and create wider fabrics. The invention revolutionised the industry allowing for automatic machine looms to be produced. A stunning design combined with a warm and welcoming atmosphere makes it an ideal place for dining out with friends and family. Please come and try our delicious Rotisserie chicken cooked in the customer area fresh on the spit. Don't worry if you don't fancy chicken, the menu is extensive and the specials change regularly so we are confident that we have something for everyone! Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk countryside, it will be the place to visit during the Summer months offering full table service in the outdoor patio area.

See you all soon, we look forward to meeting you.

We went for lunch at around 2 pm, and was welcomed by a polite and friendly young man, who took our order for drinks, and gave us a little while to choose from the mouth watering menu. We decided to skip the starters, and after a short wait we were served well cooked , tasty and well proportioned servings.
After finishing our main meal, we had to wait for a considerable long time (even though there was not that many customers ) before our plates were removed and then again had to wait until we were asked if we would like to have deserts, which again when they arrived were of good proportions and tasty.
We realise that it has only been open a short while, but it seemed as if we had been forgotten, or half the front of house staff had clocked off and gone home.
But we will definitely eat here again because of the choice of the menu and the taste of the food.

Late lunch with a friend and little one. Excellent facilities for little to play in the play area and great value on the 123 menu for lunch. Good to see brand names on the little monster menu.
