Croft Farm: Holiday Cottages in Snape

Places to Eat

No visit to Suffolk would be complete without taking the opportunity to indulge yourself at some of the excellent pubs, restaurants and eating places in the local area. We have listed some that are within walking distance or a short drive but for more information we also recommend looking at Suffolk Coast website here:

The Golden Key, Snape (15 minutes Walk) Website:


The Golden Key is a relaxed cottage-style dining pub dating back to the 1600’s, tucked away from the main road through the village. With large roaring fires in the winter and a sunny front terrace for warmer times the bar offers a good range of Adnams, guest ales and wines by the glass or bottle. The Key is open every day for lunch and dinner all year round. The emphasis is on very local and very fresh ingredients.
