Harden's survey result
“A beautiful adaptation of a lovely house” – this gorgeous Grade I listed Georgian pile in Suffolk dating from the reign of Henry IV and most famous to oldies for its associations with 1970s TV-chef Robert Carrier (for which the dining room is named) – is a ten-minute drive from Ipswich. It’s praised all-round in reports this year, not least for its “splendid afternoon tea”.
“A lovely building” – dating from the reign of Henry IV and most famous to oldies for its associations with 1970s TV-chef Robert Carrier – this imposing country house hotel attracted too few reviews for a rating last year, but was tipped for “delightful afternoon tea in the garden”, or one of its stately lounges.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Hintlesham Hall Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The setting is wonderful, lovely small stately house in a beautiful parkland. Despite claiming the name of the revered Robert Carrier (I have halcyon memories of when he himself was running this place) the food at dinner is OK, with dissapointing elements. Breakfast was much better."
"Impressive building, some interesting art, but the food is uninspiring, given the pricing."
