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

This was our second visit with an overnight stay. We were not disappointed on either occasion. it is a small but intimate place. The staff are very welcoming and there is a more relaxed atmosphere than is usually found in establishments of such quality. This sets the stage for a great experience. The two rooms available are very comfortable, and... More

The food was nice enough but the portion size was way too small. I had to eat afterwards to feel full even with a three course meal. I found it a bit too pretentious for my liking. The staff were friendly enough but they weren't any different from what I would expect in a pub, not a Michelin star place.... More

The food here was fantastic, as is to be expected at a Michelin Starred restaurant. Unfortunately on the evening I was unwell (Unrelated medical condition) and the staff couldn't have been more helpful! So thank you to them, and I'm sure we will be returning!
