The gastronomy in Woodbridge has developed over the years, and the traditional food in the UK has been influenced by numerous cultures that have had a full contact, such as European, American and Asian cuisine (Chinese cuisine and Indian cuisine). During the time of the British Empire and as a result of the immigration of the postwar period, the kitchen can be categorized of cosmopolitan along with traditional.
The traditional dishes have ancient roots, such as the preparation of bread and cheese, roasted meats, fish from the sea or rivers, all of them mixed with chilies from North America, spices and curries from India and Bangladesh, fried foods based on Chinese cuisine and Thai.
The cuisine of Great Britain has been one of the first to adopt and incorporate the everyday junk food (fast food) from the United States, and this is noticeable when walking the streets of Woodbridge town.
Early risers and night owls can be sure they won’t starve. Woodbridge may serve food for all tastes at any time of the day or night. Too many people are unaware of the town’s gastronomic resources. The tourists who come to admire the historic, riverside town also find a lively culinary scene.
