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.

    My friend and I enjoyed an afternooon tea last week. The service was very good and the afternoon tea itself was excellent.

    The afternoon tea itself was superb! Was presented nicely and looked and tasted delish! The service unfortunately let the side down, initially there is no clear sign for reception, and we wondered around untill we asked someone who then showed us to the restaurant. The service was slow from word go, we didn’t get asked if we wanted drinks initially, the afternoon tea came before we had our drinks and we kept having to ask for service, extra plates and cutlery and prosecco. It’s seemed as though it wasn’t very organised and nobody knew what they were doing in terms of ornagisation, it wasn’t that busy either. Even we when wanted the bill it was trouble to get someone’s attention. Never the less, it was a lovely afternoon, we didn’t let that spoil it.

    Waited along time for anyone to get us a drink when we arrived , and wished we had got one at the bar on arrival , limited gins available ! Food all really nice , starter plate was not removed before main meal came ! Water was not offered , when it did arrive no ice in it ! No steak knife was brought to the table , gentleman that came to the table was professional , ladies seemed a bit unprofessional considering where we were dining ! Paying the bill was slow, 2 ladies both saying one moment and we will come back ! One of which

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. I received a £10 voucher from Seckford Hall Hotel and arranged for an afternoon tea. The website said it would cost £18. The food was tasty but there wasn’t much to eat, one pot of tea between us. For £18 I thought it was value for the money. When I went to pay he said £36 minus the £10 voucher. I complained that the webpage stated it was half the price. After more complaints the waiter gave me a bit more discount. The afternoon was ruined by the lack of correct information on the website. As I said to the waiter and he agreed, the afternoon tea advert on the webpage should be clearer.

    Food was good unfortunately some of the waiters need to learn a bit about serving etiquette as leaning over other diners is not good. The music was good once it started but although it was supposed to start as we understood it at 12.30 midday it did not actually start until nearly 2pm. Which was a bit of a shame.
    But overall a good venue for dining

    The place was heaving, the Maitra D was having to be jack of all trades, despite this we were seat and our food and drink came out on time.
    The food here is excellent and the whole experience was superb.

    The most fabulous afternoon tea I have ever had - wonderful comfortable environment, friendly staff and the most delicious fresh food and tea. We had a really lovely time, worth every penny!

    Afternoon tea - wonderful service and ambience. However, the first tier (savoury/sandwich) really lacked finesse - 1/2 full size scotch egg each and doorstep cut sandwiches. Also not offered a tea menu and had to ask for tea to be refreshed. Not good experience.
