The Turks Head Beer, Cider & Gin Festival

This weekend saw the fourth year of The Turk’s Head Beer, Cider and Gin Festival. We were there with our good friends Jack and Arabella on Sunday to experience first hand the amazing selection of ales, real ciders and unusual gins in the marquee.

Thank you as always and we’ll see you next year.

The Turk’s Head is an award winning proper country pub serving perfectly kept local real ales. We are well known for our extensive gin selection and wine list, from our wonderful house Merlot to a fragrant Chablis from our fine wine list, with many available by the glass. We also have a fabulous restaurant and use the finest local ingredients to create menus offering beautifully executed seasonal dishes.We welcome dogs in the bar and the snug and they can often be found curled up in front of one of our log fires on a chilly afternoon, after a long walk in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Our ‘Indulgent Brunch’ is available on Saturdays from 10am until 2pm. You can enjoy a bowl of porridge with caramelised apples, a full English breakfast or huevos rancheros along with many other dishes. There is an indulgent drinks list to accompany it with teas and coffees, juices and smoothies, brunch cocktails and fizz.

We are extremely proud of our team and our pub. We have been named ‘Best Pub in Suffolk ‘ for the last two years and we have been in the finals of the Great British Pub Awards every year since we reopened in 2015. Please take a look at all the delicious options. We look forward to offering you a warm welcome at The Turks Head.”

Modifications to our 2017 Volvo V90

In our paint shop this weekend we have our 2017 Volvo V90 for some subtle modifications.

To tie in with the black wheels the owner would like all silver/chrome trims to be blackened.

After masking up the areas in question Darren gets to work applying the black finish.

The finished results are incredible. A very simple yet effective modification.

BMW M3 Evo Recommission

Peter is working on getting our 1997 BMW M3 running. Having been stored up for many years first impressions suggest that the car is immobilised and that the fuel pump is not working.

Franics Barnett Tank Badge Template

The new badges are currently being re-manufactured by the guys at Pamela David Enamels. The initial template has now been drawn up to replicate the existing design.

We have now approved the designs and the manufacturing process can now begin.

Pamela David Enamels: “Established in 1971 our family-run business has been the only one to specialise in the complete restoration and manufacture of one-off glass enamelled badges to original specifications using traditional glass enamels. Over our many years of unique experience we have developed working techniques which enable us to carry out every step of the involved process in-house. With satisfied clients all around the world our records show that three people from two generations of the family have restored over 15,000 badges and manufactured over 10,000 new badges as one-offs or small quantity batches. These new badges are usually to replace missing emblems which are no longer manufactured but can also be to clients’ own designs. Unfortunately we do not restore or manufacture plastic, painted or white metal badges.”
