Callow Hall

Mappleton Road, Ashbourne, Derbyshire, DE6 2AA
A Victorian country house hotel, set in a 44 acre estate, just north of Ashbourne. The intimate, candlelit, dining room has leaded light windows and deep-red décor – giving the whole a romantic feel.

Ingredients are carefully-sourced and the menu concentrate heavily on fish; while also butchering its own meat and making its own sausages.

Expect to find the likes of 'Cream of Pumpkin Soup with Pumpkin Seeds and Crispy Croûtons'; 'Confit of Duck with a Rocket, Olive and Green Bean Salad and a Red Wine Jus' or (in season) 'Asparagus with Tomato Fondue, a Hot Gruyere Beignet and a Chive Beurre Blanc' – among the starters.

Maybe follow with 'Roast Loin and Rack of Lamb with Moussaka, Rosemary and Honey Glaze'; 'Fillet of Cod with Leek, Mussels and Saffron Mash' or 'Asparagus and Girolle Mushroom Tian, with a Poached Egg and a Tomato and Herb Sauce' to follow.

Finish with something from the dessert trolley – maybe 'Dark Chocolate Fondant with Raspberries and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream' or a 'Brandy Snap Basket of Prune and Brandy Ice Cream'. They also have a good selection of British and Continental Cheeses.

Friendly, professional service. No mobile phones.
