Lovely lunch - well worth the short detour from the A303

Pre-lunch drinks in a comfy lounge - with a real log fire. Extensive menu and wine list. We all chose from the set menu which was great value - 3 courses for £20 plus drinks (wine by the glass was reasonably priced) All 4 of us chose the pear and Roquefort salad to start, 3 mains of fish and... read more

Celebrated a friend’s 60th birthday in style over relaxing lunch at The Howards House Hotel. Lovely rural location, pleasant restaurant and comfy coffee lounge complete with fireplace. We opted for the seasonal menu at £32.50 for 3 courses. Menu looked appetising and went for wild mushrooms to start and Partridge to follow. Mushroom course was ok but on the small... More

My wife and I stayed over a weekend in the most relaxed, homely and comfortable surroundings. Our room was excellent, with a comfy bed and plenty of room. It was spotless, well appointed and the en-suite excellent. The setting for the hotel is stunning with plenty of easy walks straight from the door. But it is the food that is... More

My partner was given a gift voucher from work as a thank you to this beautiful hotel. We used the voucher to order a hamper to take to the surrounding grounds and have a picnic. The staff were really polite and friendly when we arrived - giving details of where was best to visit in the area. The picnic was... More

This privately owned small hotel in the beautiful village of Teffont is our 'go-to' restaurant for special occasions. Manager Simon goes to great lengths to ensure that you leave happy, despite the fairly serious prices, especially the wines. Better in summer because of the lovely terrace overlooking the gardens and equipped with a tinkling pond complete with croaking frogs, it... More

This is a superb country hotel in an outstanding area. It is very quiet, hardly a car, not a plane. The hotel is difficult to fault, this is the second time we have been. The food was superb, room great and service perfect. There is a nice garden with a terrace to sit outside (we got the hot week in... More

Visited here in May as a birthday treat and as such I didn't pay the bill. Howard's House never dissappoints and I regret not having written this review earlier since I cannot remember what I had as a starter but I think it was a Langoustine dish. I can however remember the Sikka Deer main course which was absolutely delicious.... More

From start to finish our lunch was perfect. Staff were so welcoming, drinks in the lounge by the fire, my deer main course was one of the best meals I have ever had. Everyone had a great time. Only my second time at Howard's House but it's now a firm favourite
