Stunning venue, Tudor building, beautifully maintained. Outstanding service and superb food. No improvement ideas - all seemed excellent.

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.

    Lovely place beautiful surroundings , shame about constant dog barking when sitting out having a drink and being woken twice in early hours by barking , it did spoil a lovely stay. Could have been more choice on menu and bread with starter , lamb was very tender and delicious , Starters a little bland friendly and helpful staff . We thought white table cloths would look smarter than just plain tables but appreciate this makes more expense and work.

    Had to wait to order so that the chef wasn’t overwhelmed with orders. However when food did arrive it was worth waiting for. Super food and all diners in my party were impressed. Nice touch with mini bite and birthday candle made my mum feel special for her birthday celebrations.

    Food was good, staff and service good. Dining tables bare, chipped and scratched black wood, no flowers or decorations. Many worn carpets. Very poor for hotel of this calibre.

    Lovely experience at Seckford Hall for my sister’s Engagement Celebrations. The food was delicious and they provided us a great selection of treats. We were also offered takeaway boxes to take home the left over food that we couldn’t finish whilst at the restaurant which was a lovely touch.
    We requested a quiet table to meet the needs of our party. This was provided with ease. Unfortunately, there was then another party accommodated next to us who were quite loud, but this was not at fault of the restaurant. We appreciated the initial care and wish to meet our needs.
    Overall experience was lovely, welcoming and delicious!

    On arrival there was no one to receive us, had to find our way to the bar with no one in attendance. Having got to our feet to get s drink we were served. Expected table service. Eventually we made it clear we were booked in to dine and then eventually a menu was brought to us. The orders taken we had to ask for a wine list.
    The service at the table was not bad with the head waiter Boeing quite attentive.
    The food was quite tasty but my husbands guinea fowl was quite dry & we all agreed the vegetables were very salty.
    Having been in the business, the ambience makes up a good 50 per cent of the overal experience, we didn’t feel this way.
    We felt the menu choice was almost too small. A second fish choice would be welcomed.

    The decor in the bar are too monotone & not conducive to a relaxing homely evening out.

    Very helpful service we arrived earlier than expected and this was not an issue. However the location where the afternoon teas had been set up was no more than a corridor and with wedding guests using it as a run through from their room the atmosphere was spoilt. The music was inappropriate for an afternoon tea and once the doors to the wedding were opened could not be heard over their music and noise. The actual food was very tasty although the sweet to savory ratio could be looked at. Even for those with a sweet tooth the amount of sweet rich items was a little too much compared to the savory offering. Due to the environment we did not feel we could sit and relax for any length of time.

    From the moment I arrived the staff were friendly and helpful. We were a party of three who all opted for the same dish and we all agreed it was absolutely delicious. Best lunch for ages.

    We had a very nice afternoon tea and my wife loved her extra birthday surprise. Everything was delicious and the restaurant was very relaxing. We loved the view from our window of the wisteria growing outside. The staff service was good with everyone being very accomodating and polite, however once it came to us wanting to pay having enjoyed our tea, we couldn't see any staff to request the bill for a fair while. That small thing aside, it was a nice time and would highly recommend this as a place to get a very good afternoon tea.

    So... how shall I start this. Not very often i get to go out because of being a full time mother as well as work full time. So I cherish my time to my self or with friends & family. Awful experience. After being surprised for my birthday finding out my partner spent 30 £ a head for 1/3 of a sandwich 1 little fish roll and 1/3rd of a sausage roll half a scotch egg, 2 scones and 3 cakes. The sandwich was stale the scones were dry. The cakes tasted as if they'd been defrosted. I had to request my champagne after having paid for a champagne lunch, 3 times. I was then told you are being generous with the champagne. I had a waitress talk to down to me as it was her birthday because I was complaining about the awful service being told the coat to lack was at the other side of the building so I had to lay my expensive coat down. I was apologised to and a free round of drinks were given. Overall service poor, food not good, champagne tasted like prosecco.
