Family-friendly hotel The Ickworth is a place of adventure, a melting pot of period and modern style, and a mecca for deliciously wicked afternoon teas. There are 1800 acres of beautiful National Trust parkland to discover, the Grand Tour bicycle route to tackle, and a great children’s playground and tranquil lakes right on the estate too. You’ll need energy for all of this exploration, so tuck into freshly-baked scones with preserves and clotted cream, rich fruit cake, sticky toffee or banana cakes, and light fruit meringues. Freshly-cut classic sandwiches include smoked salmon and dill mayo, cucumber with celery salt, cheddar and local chutney, and Suffolk ham with piquant mustard. Accompany this feast with your choice of loose leaf tea or freshly-brewed coffee, and you’ll feel the satisfaction of having eaten very well indeed. The grand décor of marble floors, chandeliers and modern furnishings gives way to Italianate Gardens and the whole gorgeous Ickworth estate, and you could even make a day of it with a trip to nearby Bury St Edmunds or Cambridge.

We had received this afternoon tea at The Ickworth Hotel as a gift from one of our sons, and had a marvellous time. The sandwiches, cakes and scones were really good, and had only just come out of the oven , the scones that is, they were that fresh. Lovely environment too. All in all a great afternoon treat.

Elegant afternoon tea in the Orangery
31 July 2022
Elegant afternoon tea in the Orangery. The staff were so nice and helpful and noticed as soon as I had drained my coffee pot so popped up to offer more. We had lots of sandwiches (the birthday boy had his own veggie ones), 2 types of scones, a little macaroon, a banana & honey taster and a sinful, but very light, chocolate cake.

Afternoon tea at the ickworth
09 July 2022
Setting is nice, however, quality and value for money is very poor, scones dry and clearly not freshly made, not enough cream to compensate or cover it up. Sandwiches are obviously made hours in advance and left out, by 2 pm bread was dry and starting to curl up. We was warned at the start that most people don’t like the unusual fillings in the sandwiches so they routinely supply some others with basic egg and cheese filling but the quality of both are the same, motorway service station sandwiches are better ! The newt drink was nice but no more than a mouth full. The only item that is any good is the banana bread. I was waiting to voice my dissatisfaction to the staff but no one actually came to ask how it was, we eventually just got up and walked out but the staff were to preoccupied talking in the corner to even notice. This was a gift so it was disappointing to know someone wasted there money on this because I would never have paid for this. Much better quality and value available in the local towns cafe or even at the local garden centre. Don’t be fooled by the luxury name of the hotel because the afternoon tea is far from luxury.
