In the Teesside / Durham area this has to be one of the best restaurants if you wish to go fine dining!! We went as a party of 6, we had the most pleasant meals in such a long time. Michelin star warranted. Great story how the son has set this business up with help of his very proud and... More

A special occasion deserves special food. This intimate, Michelin starred restaurant did not disappoint. Other reviews will give you all the menu details you need. You will eat well! Maybe not the biggest portions but you don't necessarily go for that. It's the quality of ingredients, preparation and taste, all of which were fantastic. Service was attentive but not intrusive....

We stayed and ate at Raby Hunt which was conveniently located on our way up to Edinburgh from London. Our review of the restaurant is separately submitted. The room was a adequate though certainly not palacial in size or fixtures. Regrettable, it was fairly warm when we were there and there was no airconditioning. The premises are right on a... More

I came here on Saturday for lunch and was tempted into the afternoon tasting menu for 6 courses £45 rather than 3 courses £28. I also chose the matched wine package at £40, slightly more than a bottle of wine but with an excellent selection. I only drink red so asked at the beginning if this was possible as I... More

My husband took me to stay here for my birthday. Craig made us very welcome when we arrived. Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a well-appointed bathroom. We went for the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was sublime. Standout dishes included the 62 degree Lindisfarne oyster, the razor clam and the Vallum Farm. The... More

We stayed for one night at the Raby Hunt and from beginning to end it was fantastic. The staff were all excellent, incredibly welcoming and down to earth. The room was lovely, very nicely refurbished, great shower etc......there are only 2 rooms but I would recommend staying so that you can take full advantage of the wine! We had the... More

Was taken to the Raby Hunt last night what flavoursome food every course was an experience on a plate. We had the five course taster, with sea Breen to die for. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly and a lovely setting for a special occasion dining hope to repeat soon.

We visited the Raby Hunt for the first time this weekend as a joint birthday treat. My husband and I both had the 9 course taster menu with an additional cheese board selection between us. The entire menu was absolutely gorgeous with every single thing on the plate adding to the taste. Some of our favourites included the razor clam,... More

First of all I have to say the service was excellent from start to finish. The staff were friendly efficient and courteous at all times and we were made to feel very welcome. Our room was fine - clean comfy and nicely furnished. It was more Ikea than traditional but very good. Sadly for us the meal was underwhelming and... More
