Eating at Sutton Hoo

A slice of the lime pie

Sutton Hoo is currently closed whilst we work on a major transformation of the site. We'd love to welcome you in Spring 2019.

Discover our range of seasonal and locally sourced treats in our restaurant. With all profits going back into the conservation of this special place, even the cake can be guilt free too.

King's River Café

Enjoy a sumptuous lunch or a quick bite in our King's River café. It's the ideal setting to relax and reflect after a stroll around the stunning Sutton Hoo estate.

Our Café opens at 10:30am (11am during winter) and our friendly café staff will be on hand to look after you and serve a range of freshly prepared scones and cakes with hot meals being served from 12pm until 2:30pm.

As well as indoor tables, we also have an outside verrandah with beautiful views as well as picnic tables dotted about on the grass.
