*highly recommend* I've had breakfast here which was wonderful and the staff are very friendly and efficient. Fantastic service food is very good ! They're accommodating to allow dogs in the garden premises too. We also have been to the Pizza Barn where you can sit outside or they have a marquee if the weather isn't good. Huge space and plenty of room to social distance . Luckily we had a table outdoors as it was a beautiful evening and lovely views and ambiance with friendly staff .Will be coming back for sure.

Absolutely beautiful setting, we had pizza from the barn outside, the weather was beautiful, the grounds of Downham Hall are well looked after and the staff are so friendly and accommodating. I just can't believe we live so close and I didn't know this gem was here! We will definitely be returning!

Visited here for our daughter's 21st birthday. Greeted warm and welcoming. Food was outstanding and very good value. Would definitely recommend and will rebook in the future. We are also looking to book a room for a few nights too very soon. Steven was so helpful and went up and beyond, even making us some gorgeous cocktails.

We really enjoyed our Pizza from the barn - we sneaked a last table outside and had a lovely time. We also managed the last night of the Eat Out 50% off food.

Great food and atmosphere, again. The only downside was a 45 minute wait for our Pizza's. The waitress was apologetic however. It was my third time here and despite this blip, I know that we will return.
