A 2 AA Rosette-awarded restaurant housed within a luxury Tudor hotel, the restaurant at Seckford Hall presents an elegant, modern dining experience. Named the 1530 Restaurant for its historical heritage, expect exciting, contemporary iterations of traditional favourites.

Stunning presentation in the Seckford Hall restaurant is a leitmotif through classy starters like the velvety chicken liver and foie gras parfait with plum compote, and enticing mains, such as the ‘trio of pork’ with pork chop, twice-cooked belly and black pudding boudin. A cardamom panna cotta with espresso brûlée is among a selection of sophisticated desserts.

Ornately carved wooden panels line the walls of the 1530 Restaurant at Seckford Hall, and are bathed in natural light from tall, latticed windows. The restaurant’s wine list is extensive and features world picks alongside renowned classic champagnes.

The 1530 Restaurant at Seckford Hall is kept company by The Great Hall Champagne and Cocktail Bar and the cosy Snug Bar. Seckford Hall is adjacent to Seckford Hall Golf Club in Woodbridge.

    Thank you for a most enjoyable afternoon and particularly thanks to the young man who moved us because we had a wobbly table. He did this without a moment's hesitation and then brought over the contents of the table to our new location. We had a lovely leisurely tea and we were so relaxed, we then went to the bar for a drink. The young man behind the man could not have been more helpful and charming.

    This was a surprise 80th birthday present, which had been recommended by a friend. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement. After checking out the website, we expected to sit up at a table, with a white tablecloth and be served with tiny cakes of an exceptional quality. In reality, we were shown into a room, purporting to be a library, where we were seated on 2 chaises longue and our afternoon tea was served on a coffee table, which was extremely uncomfortable especially for elderly people. The quality of the sandwiches and cakes, mainly tray bakes, was way under par considering the charge per head. Even our guests passed comment on the way home, which was even more embarrassing. We certainly would not consider going to Seckford Hall again and would not recommend it.

    The location and staff helpfulness was excellent. There was however a major issue with the menu descriptions. With three people choosing the lamb "shepherds pie" we had an issue when a plate of mashed potato and slices of carved lamb were presented. It was then drawn to our attention that this was a deconstructed shepherds pie - hence the inverted commas, and we should obviously have recognized this. An alternative course was found for two with the third person eating the lamb to avoid the embarrassment. Handled politely the situation could have been resolved much more easily, and language barrier may have been an issue, but a manageress insisting that the two main courses not accepted was the limit of their credit to the cost of the meal, when a birthday celebration meal was eaten in two sittings by the guests with a 15 minute gap between, seemed very uncaring. In fairness a better resolve was reached after much debate, leaving me reluctant to return to Seckford Hall.

    The next table to us had the same issue with the definition of "shepherds pie" with the ""'s.

    Having ordered our sweets, no comments about our choice were made. The waiter returned to advise that the three cheese and biscuits ordered could only be supplied with bread as they were out of biscuits. we decided against sweets. When debating the bill there was an implication that their definition of bread was rye bread. pity that they did not describe it as "bread", we may have then guessed that it was rye. The food consumed and table / bar staff were good - the ability of the management to resolve a problem when anything goes wrong made the experience a nightmare.
    One for the manager - When told that the biscuits were cooked in the restaurant, which is why they are a two rosette restaurant, i was not quick enough to respond that a two rosette restaurant should have the ability to pre-empt that a few people at an 8.15 p.m. sitting may order cheese and biscuits, and cook a few spare just in case!!

    Best features- The building. Attentive staff.
    The menu was perhaps overly fussy,though well cooked.
    I had a very flat glass of Champagne served ,but it was replaced without question when I pointed it out.You can not ask for more than that.
    I had scallops and risotto to start (not sure that white chocolate made a positive contribution to the dish overall)
    I had the lamb 'Shepherds pie' ,the dish was fine and presented well.
    Definitely a very tenuous link to it's description / title though
    We had a pleasant evening and will return.
