Nice food, attentive staff. Reasonably priced pub grub. The pub was very clean and comfortable, with a nice seating area outside and some kiddies activities. Overall we enjoyed ourselves. It’s nice to visit a pub that is not trying to be over pretentious nowadays!!

Jono and the team look forward to welcoming you to The Flying Shuttle! A Rotisserie Restaurant and Bar for Haverhill, situated at the entrance to the new Haverhill Research Park on the A1307 heading out of town towards Cambridge. The name for the restaurant came about due to the town's links with the industrialisation of weaving. From the 16th Century, weaving was an important local industry to Haverhill and it was John Kay in 1733 who invented the Flying Shuttle, a significant improvement to the looms, enabling weavers to weave faster and create wider fabrics. The invention revolutionised the industry allowing for automatic machine looms to be produced. A stunning design combined with a warm and welcoming atmosphere makes it an ideal place for dining out with friends and family. Please come and try our delicious Rotisserie chicken cooked in the customer area fresh on the spit. Don't worry if you don't fancy chicken, the menu is extensive and the specials change regularly so we are confident that we have something for everyone! Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk countryside, it will be the place to visit during the Summer months offering full table service in the outdoor patio area.

See you all soon, we look forward to meeting you.
