    Very warm welcome and the food was amazing - the scones were still warm and it was all fresh food and could tell it hadn’t been taken out of fridge/freezer. Well presented. Staff were attentive to a breastfeeder within the group which was really nice to see. Would not hesitate to go again. Only thing i would say the restaurant needs improvement would be signage for where to go as was walking around for a while.

    Great afternoon tea. Good selection of sandwiches, scotch eggs, 2 scones (too much) and cakes plenty of tea, all served with style in wonderful surroundings

    We had a one night stay in the hotel to celebrate two birthdays with friends and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. The hotel is a stunning Tudor building complete with a set of armour standing guard in the entrance hall. The dinning room had a lovely atmosphere and the food did not disappoint. The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable and were happy to give full explanations as to the ingredients of the dishes. The dishes looked appetising and were beautifully presented, my husband had crab cakes for starters and although he thoroughly enjoyed them, felt that they could have had a bit more crab content but certainly wasn't complaining. It was a lovely way to mark the birthdays and we all had an extremely enjoyable stay.

    Food was good, but we were very disappointed to find that we were the only table in the restaurant occupied, this was a 70th wedding anniversary so completely lacked a celebration atmosphere.

    We ate at this restaurant approx. 18 months ago and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. However, yesterday I can only say was a completely different experience. The menu choice was disappointing (quite downmarket / basic in the choices available). The soup tasted as if it had come from a can. The Garlic and mushroom tart was dry and tasteless. The Turkey dinner was again like a ready meal with the most appalling gravy we have ever had at a restaurant and this flooded the plate. The gravy tasted like it had been manufactured from gravy granules of some description and did not appear to have any meat juices in it at all. The Cod Supreme was cooked well but did contain two bones which we were not expecting. The Cheese and biscuits was good although there were not enough biscuits for the amount of cheese. We were asked if everything had been ok and told the waitress that we were not impressed. Yesterday was my wife's Birthday and I certainly was not going to make a scene which would have upset her. If we had been served this meal at a pub chain restaurant we would have been disappointed. To be served it at Seckford Hall leaves me astounded.

    A pleasure to eat in a Tudor (1530) building, in a beautiful part of Suffolk. The food is excellent, and the service superb. Recommended for that special occasion.

    Enjoyed afternoon tea on Saturday 9th November. We were originally seated a table in the library but this was at a coffee table and we asked to move to a “normal” table. This was no problem and they were happy to lay a table in the restaurant for us. The afternoon tea was lovely - three finger sandwiches, half a scotch egg, a plain and a fruit scone and three small cakes per person. Unlimited tea or coffee.

    We both Love Seckford Hall and for many years have Lunched together. My friend travels to Woodbridge from Her home near Beccles because the Service and the food is good.

    The dining experience was wonderful. The quiet, quaint atmosphere made for making memories. The food, very tasty. Especially enjoyed the scotch egg, but the scones were the STARS OF THE SHOW!!!!!!!!!! I must admit, I did miss a sausage roll element. A sausage roll bite would have been a perfect addition. Being American with close family in Suffolk, there are certain specialties that I look forward to. You were spot on with the scones, scotch egg, sandwiches, Victoria sponge slice, battenburg bite. Also, a black currant jam would be a nice offering with the scones, even though it is not traditional. Would so enjoy another afternoon tea at Seckford Hall!

    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 had two nights BB&D at the hotel. Food was vg although not a huge evening menu. Service so-so. First night dinner main course arrived after 30 min wait completely wrong dishes. A mix up we were told. Had to wait another 20min for the correct dishes. At least we knew it was freshly cooked. Also had to ask twice for wine as it never arrived.

    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.
