About Pea Porridge Restaurant

Estabilished in 2009, warmly and personally run by chef/patron Justin Sharp and his wife Jurga. This is Suffolks first and only Michelin Star restaurant in the 2021 Guide UK.
Tucked away on a residential square this relaxed, informal neighborhood restaurant’s unusual name is a nod to the old town green which once stood out front. The two brick cottages date back to 1820 and formerly served as a bakery, the original cast iron bread oven is still in situ.
It has a homely bohemian vibe with wooden furnishings and interesting artwork hung on exposed brick walls.
The daily changing menu of Middle-Eastern/
Mediterranean influenced dishes see lots of ingredients cooked on the "Grizzly" charcoal oven. The sourdough flatbread fresh from the oven kicks things off perfectly and the unfussy dishes deliver bold, well-defined Moorish inspired flavours which are skillfully executed. The small esoteric wine list champions organic/natural wines, favoring small dynamic producers.

A small proportion of our tables are sold twice. There might be a leave time for your reservation, please make sure to check your booking details.
