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.

    afternoon tea. Quite enjoyable but the tea came first then a break then the milk and a another break then the scones. It all needs to come at the same time.

    Lunch time ....starters very tasty and my husband said the mushroom soup was delicious starter of crayfish and avocado also delicious but minisule little avocado ...very small portion.
    Mains ....good described fish again lovely
    Puddings fine...the cheese ...we were charged an extra £3 ...didn’t see that on the menu ...
    So food etc good mostly
    The waiter was far too familiar ...not at all professional!
    We weren’t regular customers and the numerous times he touched my son during the course of the meal was quite unnecessary
    He even said some inappropriate things
    This did spoil the meal

    Booked a table for my family to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. We’ve been here before and although it’s not the cheapest place to eat, I feel the prices are reasonable and the food is very tasty. If you want cheap and cheerful you are in the wrong place. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed, you’re not rushed through your meal in order to get the next sitting in. Unfortunately, I haven’t been well for the past year and suddenly began to feel unwell during the meal. To their credit the staff were extremely helpful and made as little fuss as possible to save my embarrassment. They dealt with the situation in a totally professional manner, for which I am grateful. My wife and I had to leave early, however our guests remained to enjoy the meal. They reported that they throughly enjoyed the food and considering what was ordered I think the bill was very reasonable. I look forward to going back, although this time it would be nice to finish the meal.

    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.
