Places to eat & drink in Saffron Walden.

An unspoilt town complete with the ruins of a Norman castle, Saffron Walden nestles among rolling hills and dates back to the Middle Ages when it was a major cloth-making centre. At the same time it grew the saffron crocus – hence its name - from which dye, medicine and food colourings were derived. The town boasts 400 important buildings and retains much of its ancient character. Its museum is one of the oldest in England.

The grandiose stately home Audley End House counted royalty among its glittering guest list. Built in 1603 for the 1st Earl of Suffolk, it prompted James 1 to say it was too big even for a king. Its splendid gardens have been painstakingly restored. More gardens can be found at Bridge End. They date to the Victorian period and feature, among many other things, a hedge maze.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Saffron Walden or surrounding areas.
