A fantastic find!

This little restaurant is a coffee shop by day and so is very unassuming, tucked into a back street by the old gaol in Hexham.

We visited Bunters yesterday had a lovely meal , I had Moussaka and my husband had Chilli, we both enjoyed it. The couple running it were very pleasant , and recommended the deep filled apple pie for desert which was also lovely. We will certainly visit again when we are in the area.

Small but very friendly family run cafe by day and Mediterranean restaurant by night. Just off the market place and ideally placed for visitors walking up from the town's main carpark

Inside a little tired looking, but nice outside space in good weather. Owner very friendly and obliging. A little on the expensive side for the portion size and lack of 'flare' in the food and presentation. A bit confusing as to what cuisine this restaurant is as although thinking it was Greek food the menu did not reflect this and... More

just had my ?th birthday party here and had a fabulous evening. Great food, and as a lover of Greek food was delighted to find it in this corner of Hexham. Mezze really worth sampling. Service spot on. Cannot praise owners enough - my birthday fell on a non-opening night, but no problem they were happy to open just for... More

My fiance and I are both lovers of Greek food and so we were delighted to find such a wonderful little restaurant when looking for a lunch spot in the heart of Hexham. Tzatziki and hummus served with warm pitta were exceptional, as were the dolmades, warm parcels of vine leaves stuffed with savoury perfectly seasoned rice and served with... More

Had a mezze style meal with a latte and welcomed by a waiter with a great smile. The homemade houmous and tzakiki is to die for combined with warm pitta. Had a slice of the known lemon meringue pie that lives up to its reputation. Will come again
