At FolkEast, we pride ourselves on sourcing the food and drink as locally as possible. There is a wide range to suit all tastes and very reasonably priced so you can enjoy good food and drink to your heart’s content over the weekend.
The FoodEast village at the top of the hill brings local food producers together wit a new take on festival fare with foodie pop-ups and products, complimenting the world food brought to you in the Food Market.
The Cobbold Arms and The Hop Inn supply a range of craft ales and beers, as well as cider, lager, wine and select spirits all sourced locally. The friendly staff know their ales well and will help find the one for you. Some of them will also be found bringing the art of Dwile Flonking to the FolkEast site.
