We were treated by our family with a 'Callow Hall restaurant gift voucher' in order to celebrate our latest wedding anniversary in style. We duly arrived for Sunday lunch and were met at the main entrance by a senior member of staff, who,after introductions led us through to the tastefully furnished restaurant and our table situated by a window with...

My wife and I enjoyed a Sunday lunch here recently, having received a gift voucher for Christmas. Though we live within 6miles or so, the hotel has quite a low profile so we had never considered visiting before. We did not stay at the hotel so can only comment on Callow Hall as a restaurant. This is very much a... More

Beautiful setting in lovely typical English parkland. It is a hotel (and wedding venue) and the decor is old manor house, very tranquilising. Pictures of the rooms and wedding suite look lovely and the fire in the dining room made it very traditional. Very gracious and attentive service but the food was actually not that special and un-exciting. My husband... More

Ok, i like this place i really do and i keep going back but it still seems to leave me a little disappointed each time. The food is good and well presented however the service just does not quite meet the mark, we were taken to our table and wine was presented and poured but after that nobody returned to... More

Came for afternoon tea, Sunday 11th August with my family for a birthday treat. On arrival we were greeted warmly even though we were very early for our booking and shown to the cosy bar area to have drinks whilst we waited. Soon after arrival we were asked if we would like tea or coffee with our afternoon tea and... More

As a family we really enjoy afternoon tea, and so it was, as part of my youngest daughters celebration of her graduation the day before in Manchester, that she chose to have afternoon tea en route to going back home to Cardiff at Callow hall. This had been pre booked and there was the option of Champagne for those who... More

A friend and I visited Callow Hall for afternoon tea. It was pouring with rain when we arrived and a member of staff came out with an umbrella to shelter us into the hotel. We were shown into a comfortable lounge with a log fire which was really welcoming on such an awful day. The sandwiches were freshly made and... More

My Husband and I went to Callow hall this week for our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. We go every year to celebrate as this was the location where we got married. This year I was a little apprehensive, as the Hotel / Restaurant had been taken over and was no longer a Von Essen hotel, but was now privately owned, and... More

Disappointed really, service poor, why don't waiters look round to see if guests need them when they come into the room? waited ages to get the tea changed as the water tasted of chemicals,(so did the table next too us), sandwiches tasteless, chilled straight out the fridge, so obviously made that morning, no shortbread as advertised, nor ginger cake, no...
