Had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Trinity restaurant in the Crown and Castle Hotel in Orford (reviews here and here and here).
It's no secret that the food here is a bit special (although, it was even better than we expected). But just as impressive was the way they dealt an array of dietary restrictions that makes the Waldman family every restaurant's nightmare.
- Suzanne and I: vegiquarians (fish-eating vegetarians)
- My parents: strict kosher (no meat, no shell-fish, only fish with scales..no skate/turbot etc)
- My sister: no dairy
- My sister's boyfriend: no pig or shellfish, but meat is ok.
As a result of this they had to provide a completely new off-menu fish dish for my parents, take the cream out of a lentil side dish for my sister, remove the bacon from a chicken and bacon salad, and shuffle around a few seafood/fish platters to get the shellfish off them. And all done with a smile.
I had the local skate which was about the best meal I can remember having in a restaurant for years. All in all, much recommended if you're down Suffolk way.
