Ambledown was recommended to me as an evening dining option whilst staying at Castle Leslie. We were welcomed by a very pleasant member of staff and a roaring fire - most welcome on a very cold night! We enjoyed 2 fantastic starters - a Greek platter and mozzarella salad.

When with my daughter for a sunny afternoon treat. Waitress appeared only interested in other customers, insofar as other patrons who arrived after us had the menus brought and orders taken while we were still waiting. I can't comment on the food as we didn't wait.....
