AA Notable wine list
Tuddenham Mill thrilled to be on the AA Notable Wine List.
4th October 2018
Tuddenham Mill, our award-winning restaurant and boutique hotel near Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge, has received the ‘Notable Wine List’ award from the AA for the third year running. We were chosen from over a thousand nominees based on the quality, selection and presentation of our wine list, and are thrilled to receive this recognition.
Chef Patron Lee Bye is over the moon: “We’ve built up a wine list that’s a real mix of traditional flavours, and we’re not afraid to throw in some modern flourishes. It’s a reflection on how we run the hotel and restaurant really, so it’s great that we’re being recognised for it. After all, the ‘Notable Wine List’ award is one of the most prestigious in the restaurant industry.”
The AA’s secretive inspectors have obviously been enjoying their time at Tuddenham Mill in recent years. They’ve giving the hotel 4 AA Silver stars, and Lee’s restaurant has been acclaimed with 3 rosettes. As he says himself: “They’ve given us awards for culinary excellence and accommodation so it’s an extra feather in our caps that they rate our wine list so highly too.”

Good Hotel guide editor's choice award 2019
Tuddenham Mill wins Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice award 2019
4th October 2018
We’ve been itching to tell you for a while now, but now the 2019 edition of the Good Hotel Guide is out we can finally reveal our big news! Yes, we’ve been picked as a winner of the Editor’s Choice award. We’re part of only a handful of hotels throughout the UK and Ireland to receive this prestigious accolade. They rave about our food, accommodation, location, atmosphere and customer service. We’ve worked so hard to maintain these to a high standard, and we’re proud of our team for getting this level of recognition once again.
The Good Hotel Guide 2019 is out now. It’s considered a bible for anyone who loves boutique and independent hotels that retain the character and personality that so many modern chain hotels have lost.

As Chef Patron Lee Bye says: “Editor’s Choice in the Good Hotel Guide is an amazing place to be. I’m so proud of the hard work my team has put in to get us there. Our housekeepers, front of house staff, porters and the chefs can all take a bow for the hard work they put in making our guests’ stays at the Mill an amazing experience.”
The Good Hotel Guide is famously impartial, sending in anonymous visitors from their inspection team to take a good look at each hotel in their list. As Lee says: “At the end of the day we don’t know when an inspector might visit us, so they just get the same treatment everyone else gets, which I’m happy to say is Editor’s Choice worthy service, accommodation and food.”
This isn’t Tuddenham Mill’s first time being noted by the Good Hotel Guide. In the past we’ve been praised for our culinary ambition, the gracefulness of our location and the stylishness of our rooms. Not to mention the generosity of our customer service.
With awards flowing in from the AA and others for our accommodation, food and wine, it’s a great time to come and visit us. Book one our great offers here.
Tuddenham Mill wins Highest scoring restaurant in Suffolk for a third year
Tuddenham Mill named Highest Scoring Restaurant in Suffolk for a third year
17th September 2018
Tuddenham Mill, the luxurious converted water mill near Newmarket, has been named Suffolk’s Best restaurant for the third year running in the 2018/19 Good Food Guide, released in early September.

The Good Food Guide review explains: “Maybe it's the combination of millpond, dipping willows, gliding swans and meadows, or maybe the food coming out of the talented kitchen that makes this place in an ordinary village in an unremarkable part of East Anglia feel like an effortlessly lovely oasis.

It continues: “Come for refined food, but don't expect fluff or fuss: Lee Bye's style is rugged, unpretentious, uncompromisingly ingredient-led.”

Chef Patron of Tuddenham Mill, Lee Bye, added: “We’re over the moon to be the highest rated restaurant in Suffolk by The Good Food Guide for a third year running. It really is a team effort. We’re very proud of the food we serve our guests and the special experience we offer to everyone who visits. We’re thrilled to be included amongst so many great Suffolk restaurants that fly the flag for Suffolk and the wonderful producers we have on our doorstep.

He adds: “We’re focused on the lead up to the new year now and are taking bookings for a very special Christmas at the mill. It’s a wonderful time of the year to visit - to relax and enjoy a bit of indulgence. The team at Tuddenham Mill know how to pull out all the stops for a fabulous festive season!”

Tuddenham Mill is situated just off the A14 between Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket. The 60-cover three-rosette restaurant is set around the mill’s original water wheel and serves a range of beautifully presented, great tasting food using locally sourced produce.

Guests can choose to push the boat out with the taster menu from £65 per person or choose from the a la carte menu with main course dishes ranging from £19-£32. A two course set lunch menu is available at £21 and there is also an early supper menu from £20.

Focused on comfort and luxury, Tuddenham Mill also has 21 rooms, each with king -sized beds, Bose sound systems and smart TVs, walk-in showers, Missoni dressing gowns and Espa toiletries. There are also dog friendly rooms.
