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.

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 🙂

Our party did enjoy our visit to Downham Hall but I would say the bacon was dry and crisp and the toast would be better if it was cut on presentation as the toasted slices were too big & it would look better rather than jus two slices on a plate.Everything else was good.

Undoubtedly the best restaurant in the area.Food is first class, service excellent and everyone involved in the the enterprise very friendly and personable. In these difficult times for the hospitality industry it is good to see that they are broadening their horizons which if current standards are maintained will prove highly successful.

Reception area wasn’t clean. Glass desk and floor dirty. Receptionist not very professional but food and service in restaurant was very good.
