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.

Set in 7 acres of secluded grounds, Ravenwood Hall Hotel is a stunning escape, with Thurston Rail Station being 5 minutes' drive away.

    We visited twice in two days on the Saturday night and the Sunday lunch.The overall experience was very nice I would have given five stars but bar staff never asked if we required ice in our drinks and it took a while for the drinks to arrive and when they did we had to send one back to have the ice taken out and it was left on the bar. Eventually I went and collected it and asked again for the ice to be taken out but by this time a lot had dissolved. It would also in my opinion have been nicer if we could have added our own mixer to the drinks as all the mixers were poured in making the drink quite weak.

    The food was excellent, but the service was very slow, the staff were doing their best but not enough staff for the number of covers.

    Booked on line and asked for a specific table by the welcoming fire. Had a wonderful meal with man sized portions. Attentive but not intrusive service. The glassware sparkled. The views from the windows lovely. Will certainly return.

    The meet and greet was very good. However, we were sat in the lounge area waiting for our party to arrive and the room was full of smoke from the wood fire. The chimney needed cleaning.
    The drinks and orders were taken promptly and starters delivered in good time then it all went down hill. The mains left a lot to be desired, the roast potatoes were dry and tasteless and the amount of meat was poor.

    The orders for deserts took too long to arrive and getting the final bill took over half an hour. I asked from the table and got up and asked 3 times at the bar and eventually the bill was prepared. The staff seemed more interested in cleaning up and going off shift.

    Two of our party were delayed due to a road closure from a car accident. We were still accommodated for lunch despite delaying our meal for 45 minutes. We were not hurried despite us causing the delay.

    This was a family birthday celebration and the whole experience was lovely. The staff were attentive and the food was served promptly and was delicious. The location was perfect for young ones. We had 18 month old with us and the fact that there were animals in the grounds which we could pop out to amuse him with between courses. It was a relaxing experience.
