Restaurant description

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.

    The receptionist/server was wonderfully welcoming and helpful, and the tea and food exceptional. We especially love the scotch eggs. We did not feel hurried or crowded, so it was lovely for a family catch-up.

    Very warm welcome and the food was amazing - the scones were still warm and it was all fresh food and could tell it hadn’t been taken out of fridge/freezer. Well presented. Staff were attentive to a breastfeeder within the group which was really nice to see. Would not hesitate to go again. Only thing i would say the restaurant needs improvement would be signage for where to go as was walking around for a while.

    Was disappointed had mother and daughter afternoon tea got our tea then food arrived about 20 mins later asked for more tea and had to ask again when we eventually saw someone to ask as I live 660 miles away from my daughter these times are special to us.

    Our pre-dinner drinks experience was fine. We were then escorted to the table where our appetizers were already in place on the table, which I've never experienced in any other fine dining environment/establishment, there also having been no consultation over preferred place settings. Wine ordered immediately after being seated did not arrive until the main courses were served. An additional serving of French Fries did not arrive at the table. The food was generally very good. The staff were friendly and attentive.

    We had a one night stay in the hotel to celebrate two birthdays with friends and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. The hotel is a stunning Tudor building complete with a set of armour standing guard in the entrance hall. The dinning room had a lovely atmosphere and the food did not disappoint. The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable and were happy to give full explanations as to the ingredients of the dishes. The dishes looked appetising and were beautifully presented, my husband had crab cakes for starters and although he thoroughly enjoyed them, felt that they could have had a bit more crab content but certainly wasn't complaining. It was a lovely way to mark the birthdays and we all had an extremely enjoyable stay.
