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.

    Always a pleasure to see the building with its old architecture. A professional welcome with attentive service. A good selection of teas available and needs catered for. Ambient surroundings but looking a little tired and worn - carpets could do with a good clean. Food available for afternoon tea was presented in a tempting and colourful array of sandwiches and good variety of cakes/scones. The scotch eggs should not be part of a traditional English afternoon tea. The bread used in finger sandwiches was dry in part unfortunately but the fillings were delicious. We appreciated a second cup of tea! Payment was quick and easy. In all a good experience and recommended.

    What a lovely setting for afternoon tea. The staff were incredibly polite and welcoming and the afternoon tea delicious - particularly the home made scotch eggs. Delightful.

    Service was good and friendly, drinks were fine and served in a timely manner as was the food, but unfortunately my food was not cooked to order, as I requested a steak cooked medium well and it arrived well done and looked as it had been cooked by utilising a flame thrower

    The restaurant venue itself is nice, although having some chairs stacked in the corner near where we were sitting detracted a little. Service was ok credit to George? who appears to be the driving force, polite knowledgeable friendly, overall however the impression was of new staff and perhaps a bit short.
    Food - enjoyable, good not excellent. Both starters very nice, Guinea fowl very good flavours although some colour on the plate would have been nice as it looked a bit anaemic. Can’t fault the scallops and razor clam. Smoked chicken quite nice needed a bit of jus. Stuffed legs delicious though. Cheese good value, dessert - white chocolate sphere and rhubarb mousse needed either cream/ice cream or not to have the chocolate soil which dried it out a bit. All in all though an enjoyable meal. (Would score 3.5 if that was an option)

    We were disappointed with out afternoon tea. Firstly the positive - it was a lovely summer afternoon and we sat in the garden. The ambience and setting was lovely, Seckford Hall is a beautiful Elizabethan building in Suffolk.
    We waited a while for our tea to be served, but as we were enjoying the enjoying sitting in the garden we weren’t too bothered about this. When the tea came we had one sandwich, half a scotch egg, small sausage roll and salmon pin wheel. The sandwich (cucumber and cream cheese) was dry on one side. We would have preferred more sandwiches instead of the sausage roll and salmon.

    The scones, jam and cream were lovely.

    The assorted pastries were disappointing - stodgy apple cake, tiny macaroon, tiny eclair and chocolate brownie.

    We wanted more tea and had to wait for the waiter to come round.

    After finishing our tea we ordered some drinks. After half an hour there was no sign of our drinks so I went inside to chase them up. We received apologies and were told they would be served straight away.we waited another 15 minutes before they arrived. Another table outside had exactly the same experience.

    To summarise, the savoury selection would have been more satisfying if we had had a selection of sandwiches, and the service left a lot to be desired. We have had better afternoon tea at other hotels.
