Ufford Park is a stunning, countryside escape in Suffolk, where you'll find everything you need for a luxurious, relaxing weekend away. With a perfect position nestled within the historic parkland and just off the heritage coast, visitors not only get the best views but feel truly whisked away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Between the fabulous accomodation, golf course, spa and in-house restaurants, there's plenty to do whether you're staying the night or not.
Indeed, for guests of the hotel or locals simply looking for a special place to enjoy a meal, the Waterside Restaurant is a much-loved haunt. Its concept revolves around seasonal produce, uplifting local farmers and producers, highlighting the best of the region's fare. The restaurant's style is contemporary and stylish, boasting jewel-toned seating, design-led lighting and huge windows which flood the space with natural light.
The main menu has plenty of options, suiting to a whole range of tastes. Start off by ordering some nibbles for the table such as root vegetable crisps with chive crème fraîche, alongside hummus, balsamic olive oil and charred flat bread. Then, it's time to choose between starters such as grilled halloumi with mint and orange salad, or ham hock and smoked chicken terrine alongside wild mushroom arancini.
When it comes to main dishes, expect all the hearty classics like beer battered line caught cod with garden peas, buttermilk fried chicken burger, and Suffolk pork tenderloin with charred onions and baby carrots. Vegetarian diners might like to try the beetroot risotto with Norfolk Mardler goats’ cheese and lemon balm, and we particularly like the sound of the 8oz dry aged Dedham Vale sirloin steak.
Finally, for afters it's all about the Ufford Park tiramisu with chocolate fudge, hazelnut and orange biscotti, which sounds out of the world. But, don't worry if chocolate isn't your thing, there's plenty of other choices besides.
