Mother and children eating out in Suffolk at The Ickworth

Family restaurant and adult dining

Fantastic food is at the heart of our hospitality.

Our expert chefs create seasonal menus using the best local ingredients from farm and field.

From big breakfasts, leisurely lunches and afternoon tea to family dinners and adult dining, we offer flexible eating options. Tuck into dishes from farm and field, steaks and classic seafood in the Conservatory, while the kids devour a kids antipasto grazing board or our chef's famous pizzas.

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

A breakfast buffet is served at weekends and for guests dining in the hotel and the Lodge you’re also welcome to order from the breakfast menu.

If you are staying at the Lodge we will provide cereals and fresh milk daily.

Flexible family dining

We make family mealtimes easy and convenient, with menus geared-up for children: whether they favour mocktails and mini meatballs or stir fry noodles. Kids’ meals and light snacks are served from 12pm to 8.30pm, and you are welcome to have meals delivered to your room. Our chef will also provide fresh, pureed baby food from 7am to 10pm.

Afternoon tea

Our delicious afternoon tea is served from noon to 4.30pm Monday to Friday, and from 2pm to 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday, with a children’s option available. Until 20th September, enjoy it with a Beatrix Potter theme.

Children's high tea and family dining

Children’s ‘High Tea’ is served in the Conservatory between 5pm and 6pm.

Dinner in Frederick’s

With the children safely tucked up in bed, take a table overlooking the Italianate gardens and dine by candlelight in our two rosette fine dining restaurant. Sample cuisine based on seasonal ingredients from local and artisan suppliers, sip vintages recommended by our expert sommelier, and catch up on some well-deserved time as a couple.
