Lovely friendly staff and made to feel very welcome. Roast beef was delicious but gnocchi portion very small in comparison. Dessert choices not great. Overall nice meal and very lovely setting.

A really beautiful setting for outdoor summer evening pizza. The staff were lovely and as I am someone who has been shielding the cleanliness, social distancing of tables and disposable pizza boxes made me feel very comfortable. We will return. Thank you

Lovely breakfast (good variety including pancakes and french toast) and beautiful gardens. We sat on one of the outdoor tables and our kids loved running around on the grass. This must be a wonderful place to have a wedding reception.

It all looks and sounds great. Unfortunately the chef wasnt available the night of our booking and they had to cancel. We went home and had takeaway pizza around the fire pit. Atmosphere was great. Food and drink was surprisingly good for a last minute event. However I did see the host picking the mint for home made mojitos. Service was good despite the jug getting smashed in the kitchen along with the guests. Value for money? I cant remember. Certainly recommend this.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon at Downham Hall. We had the Korean Chicken for lunch which was delicious and I would definitely have again. The garden setting was perfect with beautiful views. I would have no hesitation in recommending a visit to this lovely place.

We came for our daughter’s birthday dinner in a time when ‘going out’ is a distant memory! Downham Hall is beautiful hotel/restaurant. We were met by the owner who introduced himself, wife and waiter. The service was professional and relaxed which made us feel immediately comfortable. Food was excellent. We went on Pizza night with an alternative of Korean Chicken. All of us thoroughly enjoy the excellent food. We will most certainly be back very soon.

Lovely setting and friendly attentive service. Was surprised to have pizza in a box but it made sense as it kept it warm. Will be back!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch with our little family. Only suggestion I would give is to have a child friendly menu if you wanted to cater more for families. Although my son likes a roast dinner, it’s always great to have a few other more child friendly options. Would love to come back for lunch and hopefully dinner if you decide to go down that route 😊
