Our intimate dining room is a unique & versatile setting, offering a truly special & enjoyable dining experience.


Throughout the year we are open for guests to book individual tables or join others for special events, as well as being able to book the room for exclusive use.

Exclusive Private Hire

Our intimate dining room that is available for private hire can comfortably hold up to 20 people. So if you are looking for a unique and exclusive venue for a special event, then the room is ideal. This could be for a business meeting, a group lunch, demonstration, or for exclusive fine dining for a special occasion.

Small Table Nights

Tables are available to book just like you would do at other restaurants. These are normally available for dinner bookings – but occasionally for lunch also. See below for dates & times when we are open.

Large Table Nights / Special Events

Each month we host a couple of special events where individuals and small groups can join with other diners for events such as our ‘Wine Dinner’ or ‘Chef’s Table Experimental nights’ – see below for dates, as well as our sister company Forage Cookery School for Foodie Courses.

Up coming dates:

There a number of new nights bookable  on our other website (Forage Cookery School website – whilst we sort out the online booking on this website) – these include: Chef Table Experimental Nights / Wine Dinner Nights / Season Tasting Menu Nights…  These dates are likely to sell out quickly so please book as soon as you can if you are interested in coming along.  Click here to view that site: http://www.foragecookeryschool.co.uk

From the weekend of 9/10th November and then each weekend until Christmas, we will also be open for lunch!  Our ‘Tastes of Forage Lunch’ is six courses of glorious food to showcase the very best produce coupled with stunning skills from our talented chefs & staff.  So if you are planning to visit the craft market at Blackthorpe Barn this Christmas, then don’t forget to book lunch with us!!

  • ” Just got home from an absolute awesome afternoon at The Forage Kitchen at the Blackthorpe Barns, Rougham bear Bury st Edmunds… The food was excellent, service fantastic, it was a very chilled and relaxed atmosphere, well worth a visit. We will be back!

  • ” What a find! We happened upon the Forage Kitchen by chance when wandering around Blackthorpe Barns. Tucked away and easy to miss, the dining experience of the six course lunchtime menu was superb. Delicious combinations of flavours, great service, and perfect environment made for one of my most enjoyable dining experiences. Great value for money. I’m reluctant to recommend this place in case it gets too popular for me to get a return reservation.  We will definitely be back, if they can fit us in!
