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

This hotel has a feel of arriving at someone's private house! Very friendly service with plenty of staff on hand. We had a two day meeting and were very well looked after. The food was delicious and of a very high standard. The dining room was compact with only 6 or 7 tables. The rooms were fine and not quite... More

As our children were away, I treated my husband to afternoon tea at Callow Hall on Father's Day. I have to say it was the best afternoon tea I have ever had anywhere! The sandwiches were lovely, the cakes delicious, but the scones were the best ever! All this, followed by lemon posset and as much tea as we could... More

Went on a beautiful sunny day which allowed one to sit outside on the terrace and really enjoy the views down and across the valley, with a drink prior to lunch The menu choice was fairly limited but with reasonable variety,and although the service was slightly on the slow side this did ensure that one had time to really enjoy...

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
