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 an early evening meal, and we all enjoyed it, thoroughly. The waiter who served was Steve, a really nice guy..he made sure we had everything we needed.

We enjoyed it so much, we have now booked to take our oldest grand-daughter there for a family get together for her 18th birthday, I am sure we will not be disappointed.

My daughters and i popped in for a spot of lunch and were greeted and served by Steve who was very professional, friendly, polite and helpful , he made our experience fantastic, the food was severed promptly and was of a high standard. Due to the fabulous service we received we will be defiantly using the Shuttle as our regular lunch time venue

Went for a treat and once again, not disappointed. Our waiter Steve was very polite, helpful and didn't make that horrid mistake of hovering over us whilst eating as other restaurants do. He seemed to appear just at the right moment!
Food was really good, we'll cooked and served hot.
I can honestly say, I think this is the best thing that's happened in Haverhill for a long time.
Please keep up the good work.
