For now, the fantastically unpredictable British weather is smiling down on hospitality businesses who have recently re-opened their (out)doors to customers after what seems like a lifetime, so it's time to get out and support our much loved Sudbury hospitality businesses.

Take a look below for our guide for who is now open for that long awaited alresco lunch date, dinner or drink in beautiful old Sudbury town.

People watchers paradise

Having not stopped serving some seriously delicious takeaway burgers, hot dogs, tapas, Sunday lunches and cheesecakes (these are pretty legendary) over the past three lockdowns many Sudbury locals have discovered The White Horse's excellent food over the past year. Even better is their fantastic friendly hospitality and with a newly refurbished beer garden to the rear and brilliant peope watching tables on North Street out front, this is a great spot for coffee, lunch, dinner or a pint. They have also received wide praise for their excellent Covid-19 measures and well trained staff, so if you're still feeling a little apprehensive - give The White Horse a call to book a table.

If, like me, you've missed the ancient art of people watching during lockdown you'll be thrilled to hear that Market Hill will be utilised by hospitality businesses for alfresco dining this summer. The newly named Lady Elizabeth have re-opened their covered courtyard space and once again have seating out on Market Hill. With their name change they also bring a brand new menu and it's looking (and tasting) pretty great.

The ever popular Prado Lounge re-open their terrace space this weekend (Sat 24th April) and on Saturday evening they'll be debuting their new extensive Market Hill outdoor dining area. With gluten free, vegan and kids menus and a pretty tempting cocktail offer, we look forward to seeing you on Costa Del Market Hill this weekend... Sudbury's Costa Coffee also has outdoor seating on Market Hill on non-market days for your well deserved caffeine breaks.

Just down the road on King Street, start the day right with an alfresco full english breakfast, tasty bacon sarnie or grab a slushy, tea or proper whippy icecream with the fantastically friendly team at Ree's Cafe.
