About Allium at Askham Hall

We can take online non resident bookings here for party sizes of up to 4 in our main restaurant the Garden Room Conservatory. For parties of 5 and above please email [email protected] or call us on 01931 712 350.
If you are booking a room in conjunction with your table, the easiest way to book your dinner table is through our room booking system. Simply go to the 'Book a room' tab on our website and after choosing your room, select the dinner add-on (subject to availability).

A stunning grade 1 listed Pele Tower dating back to the 13th century, Askham Hall has been transformed from a stately family abode into a unique and contemporary stylish retreat and restaurant with 19 luxurious bedrooms and a newly Michelin starred/ 3 AA Rosette restaurant. A luxurious, intimate, unpretentious home from home awaits.

With modern furnishings and fresh decor, whilst carefully retaining the charm and character of this historic house, Askham Hall is somewhere you can kick off your wellies at the front door and relax in down to earth, comfortable surroundings.

The emphasis is on the food, offering an imaginative and creative dining style, using produce locally sourced from the 800 year old Lowther Estate, a six course tasting menu is £75 per person. The cycle of life in the gardens and fields dictate our menus - we work with the seasons to grow, source and preserve the produce from our surrounding farms and woodland.

Dine in either our main restaurant, or for larger groups in the Pantry or the Private Dining Room.

The Garden Room Conservatory
This room is the centre of the new restaurant and looks both out into the knot garden and into the kitchen. A real must for the serious foodies who want to see the chefs in action.
This room is normally used for individual tables for two or four.

The Private Dining Room
Located in one of the oldest parts of the house, this room can accommodate up to 18 guests. It is a beautiful wood panelled room with a huge window at one end looking out onto the knot garden and has a large open fireplace. This room is also licensed for civil ceremonies.
Table layout option: One long table for up to 18 guests.

The Pantry
A charming private room just off the kitchen with a beautiful Italian fresco painted into a 15th C window.
Table layout option: One long table for up to 8 guests.

Generally excellent service, but only 4 stars as it annoys me when I go to settle an account and it is wrong. On this occasion, the account showed neither the prepaid voucher ( I had emailed and said that I would be using it, even quoting the reference number), nor the £70 pre-dinner deposit that I had paid. Also, at (the excellent) dinner, I had asked for tap water to go with the wine flight. Although the charge for water was small, I think that it was a mean spirited addition.

An outstanding dining experience from start to finish. Every course a taste sensation with a brilliantly paired flight to match. The service was impeccable.

Overall the food was excellent. Our experience was greatly diminished by inattentive and slow service. Leaving us without drinks and food for a great proportion of the time. We therefore ran out of time to enjoy a cheese course or coffee etc, despite our reservation being brought forward to 7pm. Had to chase for our aperitif and finally the bill. This sadly did not meet up to our previous Michelin star experiences.

The most amazing hotel and restaurant. There is a soft elegance reaching out from every angle to ensure all your guests feel relaxed and welcome. My husband says it was “great” and “certainly up there with the best of them”. This from the man who told his bride that she has “looked worse”! 😂 Food was lovely and service was utterly wonderful. Your team looked like they were totally relaxed the entire time and nothing was too much trouble. They must have been working very hard to make it look that easy. I could not tell who was in charge at any stage in the evening which is the sign of good team work. The best money we have spent in a very long time. Thank you.

Sensational food. The odd roe, squid ink and truffle brandade with the apéritif set the standard for the meal to follow.: an explosion of flavours.

Askham Hall just gets everything right. The staff and service are truly outstanding, the food is sublime and the wine list is very special. There's a charming elegance to the building and rooms - as far away from a corporate ambience as you can get - just a hint of shabby-chic that we love. Can't wait to return.
