Extended voucher policy (1/10/21)
Customers will be pleased to know that Suffolk Food Hall is moving to a Gift Card system, which will provide greater flexibility to vary the amount, as well as how it is redeemed. To allow for this transition and being mindful of difficulties some customers have had to redeem (paper) Gift Vouchers during the COVID-19 pandemic, Suffolk Food Hall is pleased to extend the following terms:

  • All Vouchers (Afternoon Tea & £10 gift) purchased before 1st February 2021 have been extended to 31st January 2022, including those bought before the pandemic
  • Similarly, any Vouchers purchased since 1st February 2021 can be redeemed in the normal way, up to 31st January 2022
  • After 31st January 2022, if a Voucher is still within its 12-month lifespan, the value can only be redeemed if it is transferred to a Gift Card.
  • It is not possible to transfer a Voucher to a Gift Card before 31st January 2022, although new Gift Cards are now available.

  1. James Blackwell

    Lovely setting with fantastic views, but overpriced for what you get. Very small portions. Unfortunately wouldn’t go back unless paid for by someone else

  2. Kerion

    Lovely setting with a great view in the right weather. I’m not sure why others are complaining on price when you get essentially 11 food items for £14.95 (73p per item) and unlimited tea! (And i’m a snob for portion size)

    The vegan option is amazing, definitely worth a try!

  3. Nicky

    Only available if you book 24hours in advance!!!!!
    This is not clear on the website. And if you get turned away you can go to the cafe, where they don’t have any scones left! Or you can go to most places and just turn up and get a great afternoon tea.

      Hi Nicky and thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Both the Cafe and the Restaurant have scones and cake (subject to availability) to enjoy your with your tea. If you’d like to enjoy our full afternoon tea service, unlike other places which have may have stock sitting around waiting for customers, we make everything specifically for each customer; hence the notice requirement. This has the advantage of enabling us to cater for all requirements, with enough notice. Kind regards, Oliver

    We hosted 150 guests here for afternoon tea for a family event. Comments included: “Best scones ever….the staff are excellent, I am gluten free and they went and made me sandwiches especially…this place is amazing…”. I couldn’t agree more. Thanks for everything.

    This week we had afternoon tea here for 150 people as part of a wake for my mother. A year earlier we had the same for my mother-in-law. We could not have bettered the food, the service or the setting. So many of the mourners commented on the amazing afternoon tea, adding that the scones were excellent! We have been to many such occasions at other venues and none compare to the food provided at the Suffolk Food Hall. Not only was the food varied and of very high quality but there was an abundance. The staff were friendly, helpful and respectful. It all helped to make a difficult day easier and we would not hesitate to recommend the Suffolk Food Hall’s afternoon tea.
