Fantastic little place in the countryside. A real hidden gem would recommend booking a room. Spotlessly clean with all that you could need and a great breakfast. The meal was fantastic and the service matched. Would definitely recommend

We came to celebrate my husbands 40th. Friendly, knowledgable informal service. Amazing food and the suckling pig was spectacular. A fabulous lunch on the doorstep. Perfect team between front of house and kitchen. Thank you for helping us celebrate! X

I have eaten here twice in last three months. Excellent and interesting menu although I would personally be happy without a full description of menu at time of ordering! Look forward to our next visit

This sampler meal was a food experience absolutely delicious, well worth every penny, it is small however the service was efficient, informative and friendly. A memorable night and I would certainly go back. Excellent

Went on a Saturday lunchtime . Staff extremely welcoming and really seemed to enjoy their jobs and care about the diners experience. Outdoor seating for drinks available in warm weather Interesting non alcoholic drinks available in addition to usual brands. Had the tasting menu at £30, 5 courses plus amuse bouche to start. For another £30 you can have the... More

Four of us dined here recently and we were all agreed it was one of the best restaurants we'd ever eaten in. It is expensive but you are paying for real expertise, talent and hard work. We had the 9 course menu and every bit of it was beautifully presented and so tasty. The service was warm and friendly which... 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
