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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Very enjoyable we had afternoon tea for the wife's birthday, service was very good and sandwiches,cakes lovely. Only complaint I have was people on phone's on next table surely you can go without phone while your eating. Apart from that very enjoyable.

    Very disappointing, visited many times before. Very sad that the cream tea seems to have been cut by half, where have the sausage rolls gone? 2 scones down to 1, 4 cakes to 2? Service not as good as previous visits? Nobody asked if everything was okay and on past visits refill tea was offered, again this was not offered this time. Some waitresses had their noses out of their masks ??

    A very relaxed and friendly dining experience. Both the food and wine were of a high standard.

    Very disappointed. So many things wrong it would need a big list. This booking was for a special occasion. We eat out a lot and I won’t be visiting this hotel for a very long time as it compares poorly with other restaurants in the area.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of afternoon tea. Because of the current situation, we had to cancel our anniversary booking at another venue earlier in the year. I am glad that we decided to book at Seckford Hall, as I think it is a better venue than where we were going. The whole thing ran beautifully smoothly from booking online, being greeted at reception, right through to the excellent service and food. The "scotch eggs" were delicious.

    The staff at Seckford Hall were all friendly, polite and professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The afternoon tea itself was lovely, especially the scotch egg! We had tea and soft drink refills too. We sat outside and it was beautiful, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

    Vegetarian main ("aubergine tagine with cashews") was soya based, bland and inedible. Lamb rack small and a bit tough. Overall entrees were disappointing and menu choices limited.
