There is a wonderful vibe to The Northgate. Its recent refurbishment has transformed the property into a modern restaurant with rooms with a quality yet informal atmosphere. With its striking cocktail bar, fabulous dining room, stylish Chef’s Table (the only one in Bury St Edmunds), huge terrace and ten deeply comfortable bedrooms, guests might have little reason to venture into town. But location and provenance are central to the guest experience. The young, casually dressed staff are both enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area’s extensive history and attractions, while the food – from highly experienced head chef Greig Young – exceeds guests’ already high expectations. His ‘Taste of East Anglia’ menu – where each small plate celebrates seasonal produce from a specific region within the region – is a big hit. Plus, rates for the individually designed bedrooms and their luxurious en-suite bathrooms are extremely fair.
