Been to lunch here twice and both times food really not very good - seem to rely on quantity (huge portions) rather than quality e.g."roast" beef clearly steam cooked and so a very peculiar taste. Choose chicken!

Me and my mam landed here for a spot of lunch and were both pleasantly surprised. The bar area has a lot of charm and character you'd expect an old building to have, the conservatory is very modern. We both had the club sandwich and couldn't believe how big they were. Top marks to the chef, it was so good... More

We have visited the hotel for Sunday lunch several times and enjoyed the food on each occasion so we decided to book for a 2 night New Years Eve package. We were not disappointed and the ball was very enjoyable. There was a good atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and professional. As I am Coeliac I was slightly... More

My family and I have eaten at Bowburn Hall for over 20 years and have enjoyed every visit. The manager and staff are friendly and professional. The long serving chef is excellent. Events are well organised and popular. Standards have always been consistent.

In with the tkt price you get half... More
