Neptune Suffolk 8-12 Seater Rectangular Extending Dining Table

Product information

Inspired by a simple, classic English design, the Suffolk rectangular dining table is crafted from bass wood and is hand-finished in Neptune's new Washed Oak seal with Honed Slate coloured paint and has traditional turned oak legs. A false drawer cleverly provides neat extension storage so that you can save space when not in use. Seats 8-12.

The inspiration for Neptune's Suffolk range came from finding a series of classic "Ball Back" chairs. These were produced in East Anglia, by a selection of the best workshops, at the turn of the 18th Century. The Suffolk range consists of beautifully crafted chairs and tables and a range of living room pieces.

Q & As

Neptune Suffolk 8-12 Seater Rectangular Extending Dining Table 3 5 4 4
Too heavy to extend We purchased this table for occasional full extension use, not regular. Initially to get the leaves in we had to go to great effort with the only way to close it, by two of us at one end with other end tight against dining room wall. 12 coming for lunch, took us nearly an hour to get it open, resulting in me being under the table using the strength of my legs to push it open with my poor partner being gradually pulled along the floor in an attempt to hold on and pull the other way. We are not looking forward to our next use on Christmas Day!! Certainly not for elderly use. We are fairly fit and mid 40's and had aches and pains the next day, from our attempts! 18 November 2014
Not quite to expectations A very well made, and extremely attractive table with a solid extending mechanism. A lot of care has obviously been spent by Neptune. HOWEVER, if you wish your table top to be pretty maintenance free and to keep its lovely appearance, then you will need to keep a close eye on any spillages etc, for, as the other correspondent mentioned, you need to be quick with the kitchen towel. Shame because in other departments it deserves five stars. 02 August 2013
Lovely table, careful maintainence required The table is very elegant and just as pictured and described. The extension mechanism is ingenious if not a tad fiddlly but as specficied it is a two person job. My only real issue with the table is the Matt finish on the top. While it looks lovely the care instructions make it clear that that is not a laquered table top and as such although it has a stain guard protection, any spllis or stains must be removed fairly quickly. If you are intent on keeping the finish flawless and you don't want to cover up the table you will need to clean it as soon as a spill happens. Personally I haven't been too precious about it as I would rather enjoy my time then spend it baby sitting my dining table! Sufficed to say I have had a number of large dinner parties and no permenant staining has occured so all in all a great purchase 11 February 2013
really disappointing Impossible to open to get the extensions into the table 15 September 2012
