Winner of 2 AA Rosettes and with a history dating back to Henry VIII, Ravenwood Hall Hotel is a stunning 16th-century Tudor hotel and restaurant that offers classic British flavours with bold, contemporary twists. The intimate dining room boasts an Inglenook fireplace and oak beams, and makes an ideal setting for traditional afternoon teas.

The very best in British ingredients go into the Ravenwood Hall Hotel menu, with recognisable classics given the gourmet touch. Nibbles to start include Saddleback crackling with apple sauce, or Maldon oysters served either natural with shallot vinegar, in a light tempura batter, or gratinated with parsley and parmesan. Small plates include smoked duck with orange and mustard endive salad, and for mains there is roasted lamb rump with potato gnocchi, a selection of steaks from the grill, and vegetarian options like heritage beetroot and rosary goats' cheese risotto.

Indulgent desserts at Ravenwood Hall Hotel Suffolk include treats like raspberry frangipane tart with white chocolate and raspberry macaroon, or Hendrick's gin and Fentimans tonic sorbet. There is a fine wine list, and range of spirits from the bar.

    We went to Ravenwood Hall to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We opted for the three course set menu. I chose the chicken breast, which makes me nervous as it is difficult to get it right. I didn’t need to be - the meat was perfectly cooked and very moist. The puddings on the set menu were the same as those on the main menu, which made it very good value indeed.

    The staff were very welcoming, especially our waiter, who we have seen before - in fact, he has now been working at Ravenwood Hall for 32 years! He still delivers service with a smile, which made our night feel special.

    The decor is looking a little jaded now, but that somehow adds to the charm of the place. In addition, the grounds are really beautiful. We were there on a lovely, warm evening, so the patio doors were open and we were able to sit in the garden before and after our meal, and wander out into the fresh air between courses.

    Overall, we had a lovely, relaxed evening and a lovely meal. Very satisfied customers!

    There was a wedding party going on; and we got the impression they wanted us out of the place as quickly as possible. They should, we felt, not have accepted our booking which I did over line. The main course was very good, but the starter disappointing as the asparagus was tough, perhaps it had been frozen after being cooked. We were the only people in the dining room.

    Overcooked asparagus and rubbery mozzarella were dreadful first courses. However the hake to follow was delicious. Surprised this business survives as not only were we not shown our bill but it was all charged to the wrong room. Good job we are honest as the hotel had no idea what we had had or how much we had spent. Having said that, the venue is charming and in a lovely setting.

    Booked a fixed price luncheon for 9 ladies. We sat outside with drinks while we selected our courses. We all enjoyed it our meal and thought it good value. We were impressed by the fact that we were not expected to vacate our table when we had finished our meal, but could continue to sit and chat for quite a while. Staff were courteous and friendly. What more could you ask.

    We had afternoon tea on Sunday. Lovely sandwiches, scones and cakes - in a nice location.

    We had trio of lamb with potato and pea puree. It was beautifully presented and was absolutely delicious. We had a house red wine which was lovely and went well with the lamb. The pear sorbet and ginger and rhubarb desserts were yummy too. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the hotel surroundings were lovely too.

    Only a few people in restaurant but we managed to have a group of 4 loud people next to our table when others were sat the far end. This made our dining experience less pleasurable as you could hear their conservation. Plus the waiting staff seemed more concerned with attending to them first even though we had arrived and were seated before them. This visit was not as enjoyable as our previous experiences.

    We went to Ravenwood Hall to celebrate our parents Ruby wedding anniversary. As always extremely friendly and attentive staff with exceptionally good food in a beautiful setting. We love our visits to Ravenwood and would not hesitate to recommend it.
