Being surrounded by acres of rolling Suffolk countryside means you’ll engage every one of your five senses here at Bruisyard Hall. And whilst the house and grounds are a treat on the eye (and a gift for your wedding photography), your taste buds are also in for a treat, thanks to the locally sourced fare of our resident star chef.
We’re proud to be part of the history and heritage of Suffolk here at Bruisyard, and we love supporting the amazing, driven and dedicated farmers that give our country an enviable reputation as the UK’s best food producers.
Although the way we look at it, it’s those tireless farmers, the fishing boat captains over on our coast, and those amazing livestock smallholders who actually support us with regular supplies of freshly harvested produce direct to our kitchen door.
And when our guests sample our menus at one of our wedding open days, or taste the dishes during their wedding preparations, they tend to agree – Suffolk’s local produce is unbelievable.
Meet one of the best chef’s in Suffolk
Much like the top-quality livestock and seasonal produce he sources locally, our head chef, Richard Grinyer-Power, comes with a top pedigree of his own. In fact, we managed to pluck him fresh from his achievements running the kitchen at the 2 AA Rosette awarded Sibton White Horse, voted Suffolk Dining Pub of 2018 by the Good Pub Guide, and he’s been the key ingredient to our guest-pleasing culinary successes ever since.
His passion for creating outstanding food is matched by his love of Suffolk’s countryside producers, and a talent for sourcing their finest ingredients for Bruisyard’s guests. “It’s all about farm to fork for me,” says Richard. “And guaranteeing my guests get a real taste of Suffolk, which means fresh seasonal produce, usually harvested and delivered that very day, which makes for an incredible taste. This is great for the producers and the local economy of course, but even better for our guests.”
Flexible and fresh
Richard and his team are renowned for creating custom menus and dining options for our wedding parties. If you want to treat your guests to unforgettable food, Richard will produce a menu of his signature dishes, or listen to your wishes and create something new and exciting. Whether you want a classic sit-down wedding meal, an opulent banquet, or grazing tables and informal eating options, the choice is yours, and the team cater to your wishes.
Don’t forget the flowers
And don’t forget that Suffolk’s local gins and wines, as well as bouquets of local flowers, can create a more celebratory, rustic feel to your wedding. Actually, it’s often a refreshing way to bring that personal feeling of a local connection to your event. And if you love Suffolk as much as we do, isn’t it time you showed your guests exactly what this amazing county can offer every one of their senses?
