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.

“Great Service”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

My first trip here and I was pleasantly surprised and massively impressed". Although busy the service was prompt and our waitress, Lisa, was very attentive, informative and welcoming. The food was delivered in good time and the steaks done to perfection. We will be returning very soon.

“Fantastic lunch”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

I took my 2 children out for lunch and decided on the flying shuttle as we hadn't been yet and had heard lots of good things about it. We were seated quickly and served by a very friendly waitress called Lisa, she was very polite and provided service with a smile and provided us with everything we asked fo. The food was excellent and the service was superb we will most definately be returning to the shuttle in the near future :-)

“Third Visit !!!!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Our first visit on opening was very good but booked a table for a birthday a few weeks later and the whole experience was a disaster from bad service to not acknowledging the birthday girl........they offered us a free meal in compensation which we took up today and I must say everything has improved, staff, especially Steven were attentive without being intrusive, service was fast as you would expect and the food was very good, will put the bad experience down to teething problems and will, after today definitely be booking again.

“Lovely pub/restaurant”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

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.
