Restaurant description

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 enjoy using this restaurant for Sunday lunch. As you will see from ratings most things about the restaurant are excellent. We use the restaurant for Sunday lunch a number of times during the year. However we have noticed a change recently with regard pricing. Previously the pricing was two course £20 3 courses £25. It now seems to be £25.50 regardless of the number of courses eaten. Whilst the impact of this change is slightly annoying as one of us would never have three courses when only two dine. It would be a deterrent when we are dining with a greater number. We have used the facilities for family meals where there have been a minimum of 4 people and on one occasion had 12 people where paying for a course that was not eaten would be a substantial extra cost. The new pricing strategy would certainly be a deterrent to booking a larger party.

    I had received a voucher for dinner as a gift, I had been before but not for a while. Service by bar staff was very friendly. Food started well especially the Ox cheek croquette and Scotch Egg starters, just a shame the fish main course was not fresh and tasted of ammonia. Overall it has a cosy welcoming feel from the drive into the hotel to the open fire in the snug just a shame the food let it down a little.

    Well presented dining room with attentive staff, steak was particularly nice. Only downside, is very little choice (1 or 2 options) in way of vegetarian options for my other half.

    had a really lovely evening, however on arrival there was no booking under my name for 2 people even though i had a confirmation email. we were supposed to be in the dining room which would have been a better experience as the atmosphere was far better. instead we ended up sitting in the bar area.

    The food was average. We had to remind the waitress we’d ordered a glass of wine. The noise of other diners was quite oppressive for us as a couple. One of the female waitresses was cheerful and helpful. We had to ask twice for our coats. We probably won’t make a second visit for Sunday lunch.

    On arrival at the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly member of staff. We were politely shown to our table and the whole environment had a lovely cosy feel. The table was perfectly set with shiny glasses and material napkins. The menu had good choices and the staff were quick to serve our drinks and take our orders. When our food arrived we were not disappointed ,especially the main course ,which was a very nicely executed traditional roast Sunday lunch consisting of roast beef sirloin and all the trimmings.This was delicious. The whole lunch made for a very nice family lunch.
