The staff who welcomed us were very friendly and chatty and we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the lounge. I found the dining room itself to be... More

We had read such good reviews on TA that we thought we should give Hunters a try. The grounds and buildings are lovely. The staff are willing and enthusiastic.

Chosen more or less at random based on reviews and after some confusion with finding the place, we arrived and were immediately greeted outside by the staff.

Inspiring menu, local ingredients with a modern twist. You could taste each layer of flavour. Every mouthful was bliss. One of the best meals I have ever had, exceptional.
