Private Entertaining at Hambleton Hall
We have the honour and the responsibility to preside over those special moments in our clients’ lives, which need recognition, with family and friends around a happy table. Our role is to provide a warm welcome,
seamless service, glorious food and delicious wines.
We have three possible rooms which, in different configurations, can seat 6 to 60 guests.
I am very proud of the team on whose experience and skill we depend for success. Amongst them, Aaron Patterson (Head Chef and Director), Graeme Matheson (Restaurant Director) and Dominique Baduel (Sommelier)
who can between them lay claim to more than 65 years at Hambleton!

Choosing a Menu
We have no ‘banqueting kitchen’. Private parties are served the same individually prepared dishes as our à la carte clients but….. we cannot prepare 15 different dishes at the same moment. For this reason we ask you to choose one three course menu only (1 Starter, 1 Main & 1 Dessert) for parties over 8 guests (max 60 guests), making allowance for those who have special dietary requirements. Alternatively you may like to choose our Tasting Menu, which is prepared for all your guests.
For parties of 8 people or less we offer our à la carte menu.
A number of our menus reflect our interest in featuring seasonal ingredients when they are at their best. Do not hesitate to ask us for dishes incorporating your favourite ingredients which are not listed.
We reserve the right to adjust menu prices – up or down,
when your party is booked, to reflect fluctuations in the cost of ingredients.
Choosing a Wine
Dominique’s expertise lies in finding you wines from our list which match the dishes chosen and fit in with your own enthusiasms and budget. He and I are at your disposal for a chat about wine choices once you have chosen your menu. Our collection of ‘big bottles’ can add a festive note.
