“Sunday evening dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Four of us had dinner on Sunday evening to celebrate two birthdays - we had a lovely time. The bar staff, although inexperienced in cocktails, produced two excellent mohitos and two pina coladas, also very good. Our meal was also excellent - well presented and cooked. The service was a little slow but the quality of the food, the ambience and the frinedly and not-too-attentive staff more than made up for this.
I would recommend this place for a special occassion - not cheap but well worth a visit. Enjoy.

“Fine food ..but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

The menu is interesting and different and the food well prepared and served delightfully .....however service is somewhat slow.....over 45 minutes wait for basically a bread starter! Everything we had was delicious even though one of our party was presented with the wrong main course, this he accepted and was not charged for. Overall well worth a visit as it is one of the nicest dining experiences in the area.

“Average restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

If you want to go somewhere special, then think again. The food at the 1530 restaurant is pretty average and the decor is similar to Zizzis, only it's a lot cheaper at Zizzis! The staff are very polite, friendly and attentive which is nice when dining out. This restaurant with regards to choice is quite limited, if you don't like fish, you may have difficulty with the menu choice. If you are planning a very special occasional you may be disappointed if you dine at the 1530 restaurant

“Sunday Lunch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

Seckford Hall is a beautiful building and the staff are very friendly. Unfortunately, although for £23 the Sunday Lunch is O.K. - the staff are really not trained to a very high standard and the whole experience lacks a little sophistication - for instance, crumbs left on the table in the bar from the previous occupants and no decanters available if ones chooses a decent bottle of wine. Bread rolls on side plates before one sits down rather than the diner given a choice - just little things that could be so easily improved. Take note Seckford Hall - it wouldn't take much for you to be so much better.
