I went for a family birthday celebration last night at 1530 restaurant in Seckford Hall, Suffolk.
The end to end experience couldn't have been better.
The entrance to Seckford Hall itself was it's usual magnificent self especially in the crisp winter night.
The greeting as we entered the restaurant was pleasant and natural before heading to the bar to try before you buy some of the draft beers on tap - I went with one of the two Czech lagers on offer.
We perused the menus for a while and embarrassingly five out of six of us chose the same main course: Monkfish in a curry broth
The menu had a plentiful selection of meat, fish & vegetarian food fit for any palette and although we didn't have any bottles of wine the selection was good (next time I'll have the Malbec please) and inexpensive.
The restaurant was busy yet all of the waiting team were exceptionally attentive without being overpowering.
The food was exquisite with starter, main course and dessert going down well. We had between us salmon, beef, monkfish, pigeon, chocolate & coffee.
Added to the mix was the personal touch - talking about our two week old baby (kept under the table :) for some of the evening) and bringing out a birthday cake with candles.
Overall a 10/10 visit, will and already am recommending and am looking forward to many more visits.
