“Hall Farm is a working mixed farm that has been the home of, and run by, the Barrie family for over three generations since 1929. Positioned on the Suffolk and Essex border, with the river Stour running through the farms fields, the shop and café is ideally situated at Stratford St Mary, the gateway to Constable Country.
“The farm shop was opened in 2001 responding to a demand for high quality local produce at reasonable prices. This enabled Hall Farm to retail their prize winning beef and lamb, farmed with sympathetic methods and a high level of animal husbandry, direct to their customers. As well as the livestock the farm currently plants, grows and harvests 6 acres of potatoes, all of which are retailed through the shop.
“An old cattle byre was transformed into the warm and elegant Cafe Restaurant found at Hall Farm today. Whether it is for breakfast, morning coffee, a light bite, a more leisurely three course lunch, or afternoon there is something to suit everyone.
“Situated in the heart of the Dedham Vale you can take in the idyllic views across constable country as the experienced team, led by both restaurant manager Sarah Brass and head chef Lee Morgan, take care of you.
“With seasonal menus and rotating specials they try to cater for all needs – including those with allergies and other dietary restrictions as well as an extensive children’s menu.”
