Hambleton Hall is a magnificent venue , maybe a little ‘ old fashioned ‘ but ideal for the overall experience. Had the lunch for less menu which couldn’t be faulted. A salad starter , lamb shank and a blackberry soufflé . What I liked was...More

We had heard good reports, not via TA, so with a big birthday looming booked in for dinner. Our table was for 8:30pm so we were perhaps the last to order after some delay. The traditionally decorated country house style lounge is very comfortable and...More
