“Great meal - a real treat”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We took our vegetarian friend here for his 40th birthday. We had eaten here once before and loved it. We did the set lunch option on a Saturday. There was no veggie option on the menu but I emailed them before and they said they would give a choice once we were there. We had a superb meal. We have eaten at 1* 2* and 3* Michelin star restaurants. This restaurant hits very near the 2* and even 3* level. Our friends had a great time and thought that the meal was very memorable. The service was attentive but not stuffy and the surroundings are relaxing but grand. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a treat. The lunch menu is very reasonable and the cheapest bottle of wine is around £20 so again reasonable for a place like this. Go go go!!!

“A perfect birthday lunch!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

A family birthday celebration that includes a 14 month old little boy would challenge any restaurant but you would think that Hambleton did it every day. Just perfect in every way. Little Max was treated like a king, the food was out of this world and the birthday girl, my wife, had a wonderful and memorable day. I cannot recommend Hambleton more highly; the care they take, the attention to detail and the sublime menu make it a joy to visit. Don't hesitate!

“Staff training please.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We made a 1 hour journey to this place. ,When we arrived we were told only bookings for lunch , we had not booked .The young french receptionist was very pleasant and we wandered around the public rooms to get the feel of the place. We then returned to the front desk to ask for a brochure .The older lady who then came to answer our inquires was brusque and I thought off hand. We have stayed over the years at some of the best establishments in the world and I don't think I have ever been dismissed so openly. We came away laughing, as I gather she did not own the place and certainly in need of a charm school.

“Perfection from start to finish..”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

My Wife and I were treated to Dinner last night at Hambleton Hall by some very good friends!..from the moment we arrived at 8 till when we left at almost midnight, we were treated like royalty..the bar staff were polite and helpful, the sommelier sympathetic to our ignorance and the restautant staff engaging and informative. The food was simply fantastic, (we ate off the a la carte menu) and the wine a well priced, but lovely red. The Hall itself and it's surroundings, just added to a special night..You can't help but recommend Hambleton Hall and the wife has taken the accommodation prices home !!. We hope to return very soon..
