Had a meeting in Lewes and stopped for lunch in Pelham Hall hotel. The service was a high standard and the food superb, but the price for this quality was unbelievable, the special lunch was only £10.95 for 2 courses, exceptional value for top class food. This is now on my list of must go to restaurants.

We tried the restaurant with a sampler meal before making our... More

After spending my 50th birthday here & having a wonderful time.my husband thought it would be a good idea to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary here. I thought so too but we were a little disappointed. My husband had booked the four poster room with champagne & flowers on arrival......lovely. The hotel has changed hands, so you are no longer...

We were staying nearby at the Izaac Walton (disappointing- see review) and came here for my husband's birthday. We were seated by the window of the sumptuous dining room. Food and wine were excellent- highly recommend

We visited Callow Hall for afternoon tea for my mums 70th birthday. After researching the internet we chose Callow Hall based on the photos of the afternoon tea. However, what we got was nothing like the photos and we were left very disappointed. In fact, I followed this up several days later with the hotel manager Diana Thompson and she... More
