Lovely food with a good range of price and menu options at lunch time. Unlike some other Michelin star places they don’t limit it to a tasing menu . Three of us dining and not one poor choice or dish . Wine is definitely on the pricey side . Overall a good experience .

It has been 27 years since our last visit which was before our children were born, so this was to celebrate our youngest 21st birthday.
Everything about this place is as perfect today as it was way back then.
Thankyou to the staff who made our day very special.

We recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary at Hambleton Hall, having become engaged here previously. We could not have wished for a more beautiful setting.
The food, service, grounds and ambience are all perfect, and every member of staff goes out of their way to make you feel special and relaxed.
We are very fortunate to live locally and try to go here for a special occasion or just a treat to ourselves at least a couple of times a year since our engagement.
Please do not hesitate to spend an afternoon or evening here, you really will not be disappointed!

Hambleton Hall has it all. Great creative food, superb wine list, excellent service of the top order from the moment you step into the hotel to the moment you leave. Hambleton Hall has a lovely ambience about it.
A wonderful place to spend a birthday, anniversary or any other special occasion, but then my wife and I are biased as we were married there a few years ago, so it brought back many lovely memories. Thank you to everyone for a very special evening.

An excellent celebratory lunch.
From the welcome at the door through to the receptionist who printed off a personalized menu for us we were treated with warmth, care and professionalism.
The food exceeded our expectations.
Having recently moved to the area we’re thrilled to have such a great venue nearby.
We’ll be back.

Not knowing quite what to expect,we were pleasantly surprised by all the different flavours of a very comprehensive menu. The service first is first class here as our food was served by waiters and waitresses that were well informed about all the different courses. The food is pricey but excellent,beautifully presented presented and of course you are also paying for an experience. It certainly made our Anniversary. Thank you Hambleton.

I almost hate to tell you how great the food was because the restaurant only has 13 tables and I would hate to think I couldn’t get in because I told everybody how great it was however, it would be doing a great injustice to the chef and the 17 people in the kitchen if I didn’t say it was probably the best restaurant in the world.

A really lovely venue for a special occasion. Started with drinks on the terrace overlooking the water, followed by a superb lunch. A very relaxed atmosphere but in beautiful surroundings. Service was attentive & welcoming. My 2-course lunch was just the right amount for a lighter-eater (garden salad followed by salmon) & my partner went for 3 courses, again superbly presented and deliciously flavoured. Couldn't fault it and would definitely recommend.

A glorious, sunny day with views from the pre- and post-lunch terrace down across Rutland water. We felt valued by the staff and much enjoyed the food available under the Lunch for Less menu. The only drawback was the lack of air-conditioning inside: it was 30C and we had to ask for a menu to fan ourselves with. We'll go again.

Venue can’t be faulted, the dining room, the terrace, even the toilets all 1st class. Food was very good, but expected a little more from a Michelin starred restaurant. It was clear service was aimed at the very highest level, however 1 or 2 waiters/ waitresses came across as a little inexperienced. Overall I would recommend to all for all occasions.

A visit to Hambleton Hall is always a special occasion because the setting and the staff create a comfortable ambience for all circumstances. We enjoyed a relaxed Sunday lunch; the fine weather permitting full appreciation of the lovely views from the terrace over the pristine gardens and across Rutland Water. The 3-course menu was short and clear, but the quality of ingredients, preparation, presentation and service transformed the starter, Sunday roast and dessert into memorable taste experiences. The suggested wine pairings complemented the food ideally. We look forward as much to our next meal there as we have to those enjoyed over the past 30 years.

It was our 40th wedding anniversary and having visited many restaurants to celebrate other important occasions, this without doubt surpassed them all. It started with a small, but nonetheless important comment included in our menus, congratulating us on our anniversary.

The service was exemplary and attentive, but not overly so. They were not only very knowledgeable about their food and wines, as you might expect, but also about the history of building and surrounding area. The ambience was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed the stunning location overlooking Rutland Water.

Finally the food; not quite sure how I can best describe what was a fantastic meal, for quality, taste and service. We didn't have to ask for our wine to be served when it was needed as it was kept away cooling from the table. We were not rushed nor having to wait between courses. I simply cannot fault anything. Regarding the price, we believe it to be more than fair, it is what one would expect for such fine food, ambience and service and if you are looking for a venue that delivers on all these then Hambleton Hall is well worth a visit, without, that is, getting too stressed and fixated about the bill!
