Outstanding food & impeccable service. A rare treat for a birthday or anniversary.
Overall, this is a five star restaurant but it slipped a stitch with a recent Sunday lunch. Starters and deserts were amazing as always but the main course of sirloin beef was not quite up to its usual standard.
Very expensive for the food we had. The cheese board is effectively £20. No lunch deal on Sat which was disappointing but we were made aware of this. We were also handed a menu that did not have one of the selections on and we were told of the change. Why not re print the menu?
This was a special occasion and I expected more for the price paid. The scallop dish and grouse were excellent but the rest was average to disappointing. Somewhere like Chez Bruce is much better in all respects. First world problems though.
The staff, food and ambience were all perfect.
Expected a very high standard and the whole experience exceeded all expectations.
Everything we hoped for - wonderful! Conscientious and friendly service, food superb, surroundings perfect. Would definitely consider another visit
The food was excellent and the setting is a delightful old country estate. The crowd were of an age and manner while the servers at times lacked affability, but on the whole the service and atmosphere were lovely. The food was divine, local, British, and of a quality suitable for ignoring less educated neighbours.
This was my second visit to Hambleton Hall, this time as a treat for my mother's 80th birthday. I found it difficult to fault. They treated us very well and made the occasion very special for my mum. The food was excellent and the service faultless. Helped by a nice sunny September day, so we enjoyed coffee in the garden taking in the lovely views to conclude our visit (followed by a nice walk around the gardens). It's not cheap, but it is good value. I would recommend it to anyone.
We had a wonderful three course lunch for my husband’s 40th the service and staff were lovely. We would definitely recommend for a dining experience to remember. Food was so good!
Thank you for making the occasion one we will remember.
Outstanding, perfect, brilliant are just a few of the words I would use to describe our lunch at Hambleton Hall. Amazing food, wine and staff. We cannot wait until our next visit. Many thanks.
Fantastic countryside location offering beautiful views of the surrounding lake. The food was excellent and the staff friendly ad attentive.
Special anniversary lunch with my wife at Hambleton Hall this week was perfect. Great personal but friendly service from all members of staff and simply wonderful food and wine in a glorious setting. Expensive but unique. Thank you.
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 .
Easy review to write. Venue, staff, service and food are all outstanding !
Sunday lunch for the family on the occasion of a 60th Birthday. Everything was perfect...food was sublime...service impeccable. We couldn't have asked for more.
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.
Perfect venue for a special occasion, food and service excellent!!!
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!
Simply beautiful! Amazing food, knowledgable staff and stunning setting.
Fantastic experience. Loved food / wine and service. Thank you .
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.
Excellent as always.
Lovely staff who make you feel very special.
Delicious food that is beautifully presented.
A truly delightful restaurant and exquisite food, many thanks. The terrace outside was also very enjoyable with fantastic views to Rutland Water.
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.
Brilliant, a must visit for any good food lovers. Beautiful location, attentive service and excellent food, what more could you want.
Fantastic experience a first for this at this venue, thank you for making it a special occasion
Lovely setting and food just slightly spoiled by a few wasps and flies buzzing around the restaurant (not sure if anything could be done about this)
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.
Extraordinarily charming with delightful staff.
Sommelier is excellent and very considered.
A very special place to be
This was a meal for 2 to celebrate a birthday and the ambience was really good. We were not hurried but service was attentive and being able to select from the menu and have drinks on the terrace beforehand, overlooking the gardens and Rutland Water added to the pleasant atmosphere.
The nicest restaurant there is. Wonderful, complex, beautifully presented food. Impeccable wine from superb list. Excellent service. What more can you ask.
Our first visit. The food is incredible and the service second to none. The views and gardens are breathtaking .We will definitely be coming again we are hooked.
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.
A great place to have lunch for a special occasion. Excellent service with lots of attention to detail and small touches that make you feel special. A beautiful and peaceful setting. Food was fantastic. Expensive by worth it
Amazing food & incredible views! Staff were incredibly attentive & very polite.
Fabulous lunch, fresh light seasonal food, great flavours, excellent wine list and service.
A lovely treat, the warm weather meant we could also linger on the terrace before and after lunch enjoying delicious pre lunch canapés and post lunch sweet treats, as well as the beautiful view of Rutland Water.
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.
Usual high standards. Relaxed excellence, delicious food.
Incredible service and excellent food. Would highly recommend. One of my favourite places to visit!!
