About Food @ Downham Hall
Located in the Essex countryside in the head of a valley which heads down to the River Crouch and overlooks the Thames Estuary in the distance. We are close to several towns, including Billericay, Wickford and Downham.
Now fully operating as a Modern European restaurant with our new chef who has senior experience in 2 Michelin Star restaurants and has built an excellent team around him delivering fantastic food
Lovely restaurant, beautiful surroundings. We were waited on by the owner, who was extremely approachable and friendly, adding to the wonderful atmosphere at Downham Hall. The food was very good, not quite excellent, but we would certainly return once restrictions are lifted. Easy free parking. Would highly recommend coming here.
It was our first visit to Downham Hall and we were blown away by the amazing food, the lovely atmosphere and the friendly staff. A truly wonderful experience for a special birthday suprise....we will definitely be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Downham Hall. The service was excellent and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely return again and will be recommending to friends and family. Thank you.
very pleasant stay staff helpful food/wine excelllent room very nice views an added bonus will be back soon for another visit
It was superb & rice pudding brûlée was heaven, Many thanks for a lovely evening
Lovely place, lovely setting, friendly staff, lovely food. Enjoyed my visit to Downham Hall very much.
Had a lovely breakfast at the Downham Hall, great service and a lovely ambience in the conservatory, top quality produce used however my bacon was a bit chewy? We will return!
Reception staff are excellent The location and ambiance faultless The menu price has increased and felt £40 for 2 course Sunday lunch roast is over priced. The Malbec wine listed wasn't the wine we received. It was meant to be from Argentina but nonetheless it was still nice.
Excellent food and atmosphere with friendly and attentive staff, look forward to further meals here
Enjoyable, attentive staff. Enjoyed having live music as well.
Best food ever tasted, excellent staff, very pleasing surroundings. We will be back soon
We absolutely love Downham hall We had a wonderful breakfast which came out promptly and was very tasty. Your staff were welcoming and friendly and we had a lovely table with a view. Highly recommended venue which we will return to. Only constructive feedback would be we waited a little longer than ideal for someone to come and take a drink order from us initially and the orange juice although very tasty was a little pricy for what it was but your food itself is very reasonable in price. Thankyou 😊
My sister and I booked for sunday breakfast and have to say what a lovely warm welcome as we stepped into the lovely decorated hall to be greeted like old friends. We ordered the full english smaller breakfast so glad we did as was more than enough for us, the plates were hot as was the food which pleased us.The quality of the food was top notch as was the service.We finished up with toast and marmalade washed down with a pot of tea wonderful will be back soon..Thank you x
Third time visiting and each time the food and service gets better and better. The staff couldn’t do more to make you feel welcome and the food was absolutely fantastic. The price is a bargain too.
Since the pandemic started we have been very particular about eating out, we had a lovely breakfast on Saturday, good food, lovely setting, good service. But more importantly we felt very comfortable with the COVID measures that you have put in place. We will definitely be recommending you, and we will definitely come again.
Lovely place friendly staff unfortunately the food was cold and coffee weak Really attractive decor but again very cold In Conservatory
I have been here a few times now - I love the location - who knew somewhere so lovely was so close to us. I am always welcomed warmly. Service is always good and if there has been a problem the team have been on the case and kept me informed. It can be a little pricey but the very tasty food and location makes me forget that.
Amazing food and service, as always. We’ll be back, just as soon as we are allowed to!
Lovely meal, we felt very safe. Downham Hall has become a favourite of ours over the summer. Christina & all the staff 'follow the rules' but still make a very pleasurable time. Thank you, see you again soon 🙂
Enjoyed a lovely Sunday Roast for our last outing for a month!!
Very friendly staff. Lovely lunch. Beautiful setting.
A true gem! From the minute we arrived to the minute we left the service, atmosphere and food was amazing. The staff are super attentive and extremely welcoming. We're looking forward to our next visit. Thanks for having us.
My favourite venue for breakfast and one that I will keep returning to.
Fantastic Staff, nothing was too much trouble, Food was lovely and I really can’t believe this little gen is on our doorstep. I will definitely be back for lunch & dinner.
You made me feel very welcome. Service and general helpfulness of staff first class. Pretty dining room. Good food. It looked clean and Covid secure. Am looking forward to returning and having a light bite or a winter special.
