“Great food and entertainment ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Went here for a hen night recently. I admit I was not looking forward to the "cabaret" (band and comedian) but I was pleasantly surprised. The band were brilliant playing lots of 80s, 90s and more up to date stuff and the comedian was funny! The food was really good and service was excellent again I was surprised as they cater for a lot of people and groups like hen nights and birthdays. There was a great choice of starters and mains and the pudding was a platter of lots of different bite sized bits. Very easy to over-eat. Unfortunately the bar area in the restaurant only served wine by the bottle so you had to fight your way to the main bar to get anything else which was my only gripe. Had a great evening though!

“A nice place but a bit dated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed over night at this hotel in room 38 which is away from the main building. Nice room, clean and we'll presented. Very very small bathroom with no shelving at all, which was a dissapointment. The main hotel has a real 70;s throwback feel to it. There are lots of laminated signs the result of which makes it look cluttered and just a little bit tacky. Very pleasant staff though and they clearly care about their customers. Overall the hotel lacks atmosphere and really needs to revamp.

“Beautiful Evening of Great Food and Entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We booked a room at the Down Hall Hotel just a mile from the Hunters Meet and saw the restaurant as we drove past - we looked at trip adviser and saw some good reviews and telephoned to see if their were any availability for my Fiance and myself. Luckily they managed to set up a table for 2 and we were treated to a lovely evening with amazingly good food, great choices of starters and mains, big portions and a shared dessert with lots of amazing naughty's to finish with. Un-known to us we also lucked out as they have a live band on Friday and Saturday nights, who were brilliant, then a comedian came on and did a fab show :-) Brendan was a splendid and charismatic host and the staff a real joy. We had a beautiful evening and danced in to the following day... Thank You x

“Excellent evening meal with entertainment - top customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

My partner and I were staying at a hotel nearby on a special deal (Down Hall Hotel). We were unable to get a table at the hotel's restaurant so did a quick trip advisor search for restaurants in Hatfield Heath and found this one as highly recommended. We rang them around 6pm on the night (a Saturday) in the faint hope that we could get a table. They advertised the evening meal as a set price menu which included entertainment in the form of a comedian and singers. We called and luckily enough they had just one table for two remaining. Due to the last minute booking and filling the last table we were offered a discount of the price per person set menu which we were even more pleased with.
Upon our arrival at the restaurant which was just a few minutes cab ride there was a very friendly welcome, friendly bar staff and seated at our candle lit table and food order taken soon after. All staff were very friendly and efficient. When the food arrived I was surprised how good quality it was. Extremely tasty and delicious. After the meal the entertainment was a pleasant extra. When we came to return to the hotel the reception staff called us a cab and then informed us it would be around 30 minute wait. This wasn't really a huge issue as they have a nice bar there, but they seemed to want to go the extra mile and the manager/owner offered to take us back in his personal car as he was leaving anyway! This is certainly the first time I have received such excellent customer service such as this, not wanting any money for the 'taxi fair'. The staff at Down Hall certainly were not as friendly and welcoming and made us wish we had stayed at Hunters Meet instead.
Good food, good service, good experience. Would definitely recommend.

“Excellent Hospitality and Entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

Just arrived home after a week away, last night at Hunters Meet crowned a lovely dry week. Top of the bill was the hospitality on our return visit to Hatfield Heath. Soul and Motown evening with four course dinner and two birthday girls was excellent entertainment for the relaxing traveller - me !
