My husband treated his father and me to dinner here 10 days ago, both of us celebrating new jobs. We all enjoyed the 7 course dinner and 1 wine flight because two of us were driving. All I can say is that the food was...exceptional. Having visited several michelin * restaurants and our previous favourite local restaurant being the Great House in Lavenham a few years back, we now have a new firm favourite after this visit. On top of the exceptional food, the ambience was perfect and the service fabulous. Kyle, who we believe to be both the maître d and sommelier, was the icing on the cake for us. His wine knowledge and general quirky behaviour added another level to our experience. Although exceptionally busy, he made time for us and answered any questions we put to him. When our bill arrived, we were given two little boxes, each containing delicious chocolate truffles, and a congratulations on your new job cards, very thoughtful. Needless to say, we will be back asap. Thank you for an outstanding soirée.More

We had the 7-course tasting menu with the wine flight, and honestly, it was the best meal I've ever had. The food is amazing: each course a little miracle of tastes and textures and presentation. The service couldn't have been better: both food and wine...served by staff who seem to take pride in what they're serving (as well they might), in a manner that combines friendly informality with well-informed expertise. Even the environment is flawless: low-key classic decor, tables a good distance apart, lighting just right. It's not cheap (our meal, including extra drinks and a cheese course, came to a little over £300 for 2 before service), but what you get for that is absolute perfection.More

1921 is amazing. Delicious cuisine in an unpretentious manner. Love their lunch specials 3 courses for under 30 quid. Staff is outstanding. So much fun and great food without pressure or worry.

We recently moved to suffolk and have been making our way through the "fancy" restaurants. 1921 is by far - not even close type thing - the best we've been to (cf. Lark, pea & porridge). The food was just really delicious. pretty pretentious...but merited....And lovely staff. my wife is pregnant so was being (irritatingly) fastidious on dietary stuff (e.g. sending under cooked meat back etc.) and the staff were charming and helpfulness personified. big thumbs up.More

Booked in last minute after a change of plans. We went for the 7 course taster which I was worried wouldn’t be available on short notice, but it was and I was delighted. Each course was incredible and I done the wine flight. The guy...talking through the wines really knew his stuff think his name was Callum or something similar to that. I can’t believe they are not on the Michelin guide. Really worth the money and visit.More

I have been quite fortunate to visit quite a few fine dining restaurants. This for me is the best experience thus far. The front of house staff were so accommodating in advising me of what I didn’t know regarding ingredients and also being very professional...without any feeling of pomposity. I cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant. The food is Devine, the service superb. The room is welcoming and relaxed. I highly recommend this restaurant if in the area.

If you’re reading this you are probably interested in fine dining with exceptional service. And this is what I had at 1921 7 course tasting menu. Beautifully imagined, cooked to perfection and presented with flair and care. Service was attentive and unobtrusive as it should...be. It’s the little things: presenting cutlery, serving and clearing from the correct side, knowledgeable about the dishes - all executed perfectly Wine list worked well for me with plenty of my faves Toilets perfectly clean: it matters! Ambience good with a suitable playlist at a gentle volume One for the MustGoBack list!More

Amazing! We opted for the 5 course tasting menu and it was perfect for us. I find it incredible how the chef balances and combines flavours so each course creates one taste sensation after another. My favourites were the crab and the halibut & mussel...courses.More

My son treated me to the 7 course tasting menu at 1921 as a pre Mothers Day treat. I can honestly say that it was probably the best meal I’ve had for a long time. Amazing food, superb staff service, wonderful ambience. The wine was...fantastic too. Very knowledgable restaurant manager who enjoyed explaining our food selection and the very diverse wines. The staff were very professional and yet happy to talk about the food as well. Early booking is essential and it really was packed. We will definitely return.More

It's locally sourced I don't know about organic. I would be surprised if a lot of their menu isn't organic. You need a reservation so ask when you call. It is fantastic.
