First established in 1570, Worlington Hall has welcomed guests from near and far for over 450 years through the arches of the majestic manor. The Hall is currently undergoing a sympathetic and tasteful restoration to create a serene East Anglian haven that will live on for many more years to come.

The Worlington restaurant is the heart of our hotel - locally reared meats, coastal catches and hand-picked produce take precedence, perfectly paired with our wine list, make for an evening of dining in the Suffolk countryside that's truly memorable.

    We picked an unusually bad day. The lamb was very fatty , tough and not much in quantity. Choice of background music was depressing. Definitely recommend.

    The restaurant, food, service, decor, staff were all excellent. We stayed at the hotel for the night and everything was exceptional. Everywhere was immaculate. The breakfast was equally as good, and the staff were all professional and friendly. The whole place has a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant and hotel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Excellent service as always. The only complaint we had was both starter and main were served with rocket when we specifically asked for no rocket, not the waitresses fault as she wrote it down. Would definitely recommend and the food was really good. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. We will definitely be back. have heard excellent comments for the Sunday roast so will have to try it.

    Dreadful service sat in cold bar, table unstable and difficult to seat 4 people round. Very long wait for food nearly 90 mins between starter and main and had to ask for one of starters as not even brought to table . Beef very fatty and difficult to cut, had to ask few times for gravy and sauces . Extremely disappointed as previous visit food was excellent. For what we got it was very over priced. Huge disappointment for special occasion celebration

    Enjoyed a fillet steak, well cooked and tasty. However, sides that came with steak meal at cost of £38.00 could have been better. A pile of rocket on the plate and a few chips, not exactly quality or value for money. My husband's sides Brussel sprouts with his Chicken Milanese were awfully cooked and not well presented, he commented to our waitress this fact.

    Another lovely meal and evening at The Worlington Hall. Our starters were great, our steaks were perfectly cooked and full of flavour, and the lemon posset to finish was beautifully tangy. The young waitress who served our table was polite and went about her work in a very professional manner, it made an enjoyable evening even better. Top marks all round.

    we had a great night. Unfortunately we were originally put on a table near the pianist which was very loud. The staff were excellent and moved us to a quieter table. Food was fantastic although my wife was not very keen on the green cream on her desert

    Sadly I was the biggest fan of my mushroom starter, just wasn’t to my taste, but my wife’s starter was lovely. We both miss read the mains menu and my wife thought she was getting venison but it was venison sausages, lovely just not what she thought she was getting. My chicken main again should have double checked, a breaded chicken breast, it wasn’t juicy at all and the sauce was delicious yet was a drizzle and definitely not enough to call it a sauce. I would go back but would Not pick my Oder again. I’ve eaten hear before and the food was better then.

    Lovely atmosphere and delightful staff. We have eaten here previously several times and been very happy with the food. However on this occasion we were rather disappointed. The starters were good but the main courses were both poor by previous standards. My husband had beef wellington which was so salty he was unable to eat anything except the beef and frankly he’s not a particularly fussy eater. I had chicken with fried potatoes which were so over cooked I also did not eat them. I’m hoping it was just a one off. We will go back and try again but maybe not for a while.
