Mother and children eating out in Suffolk at The Ickworth

Family restaurant and adult dining

Fantastic food is at the heart of our hospitality.

Treat yourself to a relaxed meal in our family-friendly restaurant.

From rabbit lasagne to sausages and mash, our expert chefs create seasonal menus using the best local ingredients and vegetables picked from our own walled garden.

From big breakfasts, leisurely lunches and afternoon tea to family dinners and adult dining, we offer flexible eating options. Tuck into antipasto platters, steaks and classic seafood in the Conservatory, while the kids devour Dingley Dell chipolatas or ‘hidden vegetable’ lasagne.

Or put the children to bed (If you are staying in the hotel switch on the baby-listening system, or we can organise a baby-sitter if you are staying in the Lodge) and enjoy a sophisticated, adult-only dinner in Frederick’s restaurant, overlooking the Italianate gardens.
