Why we love Saffron Walden
History? Culture? Scenery? Tick, tick, tick. The picturesque medieval town of Saffron Walden offers up a variety of gems for all types of visitors. Just a six-minute drive away, explore beautiful Victorian grounds at Audley End House and Gardens – one of the UK’s finest country estates. If you have little tykes on board, they’ll simply love a miniature railway journey on the Explorer Express at Audley End. There’s even an adventure play area and a fairy and elf walk too. Another six-minute drive away from here, get set for a magical woodland day out. From ancient artefacts and archaeology to geology and natural history, culture vultures must check out the Saffron Walden Museum – a seven-minute drive away. Art fans are also covered. An eight-minute drive away, striking illustrations, paintings, prints and more await at The Fry Art Gallery. Other highlight attractions in the local area include Bridge End Garden, Walden Castle, Saffron Walden’s Turf Maze, and the village of Thaxted.
Our steaks are always popular! Our 10oz ribeye steaks are one of our tastiest cuts and, like all our steaks, they’re aged for a minimum of 30 days, grilled to perfection, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple-cooked chips, crispy flat mushrooms, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.
You can’t beat our Sunday lunches here at the Saffron Walden Beefeater. With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash and ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
It’s got to be our Premier Inn Breakfast, which we serve at the Saffron Walden Beefeater – featuring a diverse selection of options that truly showcases the best of an English breakfast. That’s bacon, eggs cooked just how you like them, hash browns, black pudding, tea and coffee, toast and more.
We’re totally family friendly and we can make your next meal out hassle-free. Our kids’ menu is full of dishes your children will love and our team are great with kids. Best of all, up to two kids can eat breakfast for free when an adult orders a Premier Inn Breakfast!
