Lovely afternoon tea

We had a very good afternoon tea at Callow Hall a couple of weeks ago. The staff were very attentive and the cakes and sandwiches were good. We were met at the front door by a smiling waitress and made to feel special and very welcome.

An elegant and beautiful hotel with stunning views - but that was it. We visited for Sunday lunch with family and left very disappointed with the meals that were served. The selection was good with a wide choice for a set menu, but the meal served was awful, with some meats and vegetables served cool/tepid and definitely not of a... More

Very enjoyable couple of hours with good food, elegant surroundings and Downtown Abbey-esque waiter service. Views were spectacular - especially surprising since Ashbourne town centre is just two minutes drive away. Admittedly we went when quiet but get your timing right and you will feel like the Earl of Grantham

My partner and I decided to come out to Callow Hall for a lovely trip out and Sunday Lunch as a treat. Upon arrival I was impressed ... The grounds and Hall itself look magnificent! We were greeted at the door by lovely smiley waiters, led to the bar area for pre-dinner drinks, whilst looking out over the gardens. Our... More

This is the first time we have been to Callow Hall. The New Years Eve Celebration dinner was excellent with fine food served for each of the eight courses by friendly attentive staff. All in all we could not fault the evening, well done to all the team.

Back in January 2014 we had a really nice Sunday lunch here, so decided to return with family in the Summer; July. Oh dear, this time it was bad enough that we will never return. A two-course Sunday lunch for 6, with one drink each came to over £150. The surroundings and the service were still good, but something is... More

Wonderful cuisine. Great service. Delightful evening. Do make sure that you book well in advance and ask for a table near to the windows - the views are outstanding.

Lovely building, beautiful setting, extremely pleasant and capable staff. Sadly the food was awful and totally misdescribed. Only 2 front of house staff on duty on a Balmy Thursday summer evening during the height of summer season. They tried there best, were fabulously polite, but checking in customers and trying to wait in tables and serve in the bar was... More
