If you are going to Aldeburgh, Snape, Walberswick or Southwold take a short detour and head to the little market town of Saxmundham. It is well worth a visit because of the Bell at Sax, the former Bell Hotel. It is now a restaurant with rooms.
The food is brilliant and the choice is excellent. Mostly local produce which is cooked with flair and care.
I had the new seasons asparagus with Cerano ham and poached drizzled with balsamic vinegar. This was followed by the local caught lemon sole, again with asparagus - well it is in season and too good to miss - and buttered baby new potatoes. All washed down with some Pinot Grigio.
I left very full with a wallet that was'nt empty. Do try it. Its a little gem. Their draught beer is also good.
