Pork

Which wine with pork?

A fruity lighter red from the Loire, Beaujolais or Southern Hemisphere that have riper fruit. Or a rich fruity dry white like a Viognier or an Alsace.

Shami Gill, Wattisfield Wines. Three doors from us. .

Local Suffolk free range pork. Naturally and outdoor reared.

Hung and matured for ten days on our premises; this enhances the flavour and tenderises the meat.

Only young gilt (female) pigs are used, which ensures the most tender, sweet, and succulent pork possible.

Whenever available we stock rare breed pork: Gloucester Old Spot, Berkshire, Saddle Back, and Large Black.

We source our pork from two farms, Dingley Dell, and Blythburgh, both located out towards the Suffolk coast. For their whole lives all our pigs spend all day outside in large fields with plenty of space to roam in – never cooped up.

Dingley Dell and Blythburgh pigs are Freedom Food RSPCA monitored.
