    Pleasant waitress showed us to our seats and arranged for drinks to be served. Good piping hot food including salmon and ceasar salad.

    I wanted to treat my partner to a nice meal to thank him for his help in sorting out my car recently. I was hoping for a special evening that would make him feel spoiled. We arrived by taxi at the entrance and there was no one on reception. We wandered around trying to find the restaurant then found an employee sat at a computer in what looked like a towel cupboard and she directed us to the restaurant. Not quite the welcome I was expecting at such a plush hotel.

    We each had a cocktail to start which were lovely and ordered a bottle of Giffords Hall Suffolk Bacchus white wine. We both had the grilled octopus followed by the crab linguine and then the cheese board. The grilled octopus was scrummy and the cheese board was wonderful – lots of delicious local cheeses. However, the crab linguine was very disappointing – we could not taste any crab or seafood in the sauce, nor could we find any crab in our bowls. It was like eating pasta covered in plain cream. We did mention it to the senior waiter and he just mumbled something about letting the chef know – not quite the response we were expecting.

    Needless to say, the welcome and disappointing main tainted our evening somewhat. We left straight after the cheese board and are unlikely to return despite living locally. Restaurant 1921 in Bury St Edmunds remains our favourite place for a posh meal out!!

    Went for Afternoon Tea for mother in law’s birthday. Plenty of food and tea. Ate in the Consevatory. Kitchen also did her as a freebie some strawberries on a plate which had Happy Birthday spelt in chocolate.

    The conservatory restaurant was lovely - very family friendly. Great menu for all the family. Lovely food - a little wait but well worth it. The main hotel restaurant had the same menu (which was a little disappointing). The waitress was also a little annoying. Very fierce face, not very friendly. Steak was delicious. Crumble also delicious. Most options for puddings would have been lovely.

    My wife and I took our daughter and husband to Fredericks at The Ickworth Hotel near Bury St Edmunds. It wasn't cheap but you certainly get what you pay for. Excellent food, we all agreed, and very friendly and charming service from our waitress.
