A Suffolk pub's beer garden has been named one of the best in the UK by a national newspaper.

The Brewers, in Rattlesden, near Bury St Edmunds, has been ranked among the best by The Telegraph, who picked out their "flagstone terrace" as a place to go for a drink during the summer months.

Food, drink and travel writer for the Telegraph, Andy Lynes said: "Take a seat on the covered flagstone terrace in the secluded garden of this rural village gastropub surrounded by foliage and overlooking the lawn and pretty flowerbeds.

"The emphasis is on local produce, with a menu of modern British dishes including Suffolk crab with radishes, lemon, lime and marigold, and grass-fed Suffolk lamb rack with spring vegetables."

 The Brewers at Rattlesden was awarded the title of Best Newcomer 2020 and their head chef Sam Sturman was also named Chef of the Year 2020 in the Eat Suffolk Food and Drink Awards.
