About Tuddenham Mill
Tuddenham mill- hotel, restaurant, wedding and meeting venue in suffolk
Years of history and the chic yet sympathetic refurbishment of a traditional watermill combine to offer an exceptional experience in the Suffolk countryside. If you're looking for something more than the usual boutique hotel, restaurant or wedding and meeting venue, then you may have found it. Tuddenham Mill, set in Suffolk in between Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge, offers a unique environment, a genuine passion for great food and wine, the ultimate in bedroom comforts and discreet yet attentive service.
No-one offered us anymore drinks, despite my husband having no drink left 2 courses into the tasting menu. In the end we had to ask for more drinks after our third cpurse was cleared and to be honest we would've probably had a few more if the staff had noticed our drinks each time a course was delivered. I overheard one of the staff ask if another table was celebrating anything, which they were, then wondered why we weren't asked that same question seeing as it was our first visit to the mill and it was our first wedding anniversary. The food was very nice, the stonebass especially. It was our first visit and would maybe like to visit during the daytime to see the facilities better.
Still one the best in the local area.
We had an overnight stay in a nook accommodation with a hot tub. This was intimate and relaxing and the facilities were excellent. Lunch was fresh and satisfying with good bar service. We had the chefs harvest menu for dinner and this was beyond superb; each course was explained by our waitress Jade whose knowledge enhanced our dining experience. Each member of staff were friendly and quietly unintrusive. We left Tuddenham Mill eager for a return visit.
left a review on tripadvisor..we loved it.
Added several new dimensions to dining out. The food and service are on a completely different level to what I have experienced previously, and it has to be said the Mill itself is quite special.
Lovely place in a beautiful setting. Food was delicious. Only slightly marked down because we were left wondering where to go and when after speaking to reception and the bar.
Lovely Sunday lunch!
We stayed in one of the pods, it was perfect, from the atmospheric music playing as we opened the door, to all the well thought out small touches, the calming colour scheme and simple interior design. We ate in the restaurant on Saturday evening, excellent friendly staff and superb food. We will definitely return.
Lovely thank you
A perfect ten ... Only the second visit in recent years but I will certainly be returning more often brightened up a miserable day weather wise
Our recent stay gave us a welcome break, we enjoyed the peace. Everything in the hotel and our room was of a high standard, clean, fresh and comfortable. We had a patio leading out to very pleasant gardens. We enjoyed delicious, imaginative and well presented food in a most attractive restaurant, Our only small problem was no decaffeinated tea either in our room or at breakfast as my wife is allergic to caffeine.
Excellent as always
notably excellent food.
Beautiful setting and thoughtfully restored mill. Really lovely boutique style hotel.
Fantastic food . Lovely views and nice room , great quality complimentary goodies in the room . Staff very nice , friendly but some confusion with my booking and the package booked ....
Excellent meal and service.
Best food we've eaten at the Mill for a while.
Great food and a beautiful restaurant.
This is our second stay at Tuddenham Mill. As before, the room was beautiful (Loft room) - clean, very comfortable and cosy. Perfect for a romantic retreat. The reception and bar staff were friendly, welcoming and effective. The food was delicious and what we would expect of a 3 rosette restaurant. However, I’m afraid this is where my praise ends. The service in the dining room both at dinner and at breakfast was woeful. The maitre d’ was ineffectual and unable to effectively manage his restaurant to ensure customers were dealt with in a timely manner. We were told we could sit wherever we wanted, which I think is a bit lazy and demonstrates a lack of consideration for managing orders. Having been given menus we then waited for drinks to arrive before being completely ignored for at least 25 minutes despite indicating we were ready to order. Interestingly, the message that my husband was coeliac had already been communicated and the waitress said she would come back to guide us through the menu. She never came back on this. The staff managed to look and walk the other way until finally we attracted the attention of the maitre d’. We were not the only ones to wait, but I did notice that customers were dealt with randomly rather than any thought to the order in which people were seated and ready to order. The maitre d’ gave the most basic service and looked terribly uncomfortable in his environment. We then waited and waited, first for my bread, then for the gluten free bread (delicious when they eventually arrived). Our food was lovely, but it was so randomly served with zero finesse by the inexperienced serving staff. The restaurant didn’t communicate effectively with the bar staff, which meant that the drinks weren’t being served efficiently. The girl running the bar was on her second day. Both she and a waitress called Jade were the only ones who seemed to be trying to make a noticeably bad situation better. The maitre d’ hid behind his table looking at and rearranging his orders. A group came in and tables had to be hastily moved together. That booking can’t have been a surprise but the restaurant wasn’t prepared for them. Even if it were, there are more stylish ways of dealing with unexpected large parties - leaving the party in the bar with drinks while everything was prepared, for example. It was unfortunate that the atmosphere was tainted by a ghastly woman who spoke at top volume all evening and destroyed any chance of quiet, convivial conversation at individual tables and, judging by looks from other tables, was winding others up. By the time we got to choosing pudding we made the decision that life was too short. We cut our losses and headed for the bar, knowing that we would at least get a lovely cup of coffee served by one of the two effective staff. Such a shame, because the puddings sounded delicious. Breakfast was even worse. Delicious food but we waited over 30 minutes for gluten free toast and orange juice. The waitress apologised for neglecting us but said they were very busy. They weren’t busy (it was half empty), just ineffectual. Our food was constantly sent to the wrong table before the waitress admitted that the wrong number had been put on our order. Tables were left uncleared with the staff ignoring the clutter rather than taking something back to the kitchen. Unfortunately a customer had a horrible choking incident, which her friend dealt with, assisted by other concerned customers. The waitress blithely carried on taking orders before realising she should probably go to check. This was after she’d drifted into the kitchen, apparently unconcerned for the situation going on. I might have expected a member of staff with first aid training to have been called - at the very least to check the poor lady was recovering. I don’t think I’ve ever had such bad service anywhere. To put it in perspective, we took our children to a local Pizza Hut, where the waitress impressed us with her lovely manner, knowledge of coaliacs disease and very efficient management of a very busy restaurant. That meal cost a fraction of the our meal at Tuddenham Mill, but the service was 5 star. The only reason I’ve put a star for service at Tuddenham was to acknowledge the efforts of Jade and her colleague behind the bar. Really disappointing. The talented head chef is being terribly let down by inexperienced, thoughtless and uncaring serving staff.
Your service was quite appalling. Arrived 1830-sat in bar. Waited 10+ minutes for drinks, before eventually I asked one of the many passing staff to take a drinks order. Had to do the same thing 10 minutes later to get menus. Ditto 10 minutes later to take our food orders. Then asked to go to restaurant to have order taken! So we waited over 30 minutes after arrival to place an order and at each stage, we had to ask for service. Staff staggeringly inattentive. Have not been anywhere as bad as this, with pretensions to offer a fine dining experience, in years. Was at Morston Hall last week. The difference is night and day. Shame- would like to have praised you as Suffolk needs some more good restaurants but you need to get front of house sorted. Food quality promising, but atmosphere damaged by such poor service
We had a lovely stay at the Tuddenham Mill hotel but this was marred by the fact that the deer meat of my main course during dinner was burned. I did mention it at the time during the meal and when checking out. Overall the food was ok: excellent starters, but very average mains. I was expecting a much better dining experience, especially for such a high price. As a comparison, we went to a sumptuous 1 Michelin star restaurant a few days earlier in London, which blew the socks off the very average and similarly costed experience at Tuddenham Mill.
Very nice atmosphere, food was up there with some of best food I've tasted, priced to suit the high quality food, thoroughly enjoyed the experience
Good experience. Staff very helpful. Breakfast superb!
Delicious, seasonal and flavoursome. Stunning setting and memorable for all the right reasons.
