Main was Duck Breast, Spiced Aubergine, Onion & Tomato Salad, Yoghurt Dressing - really tender meat & complimented by amazing veg combinations. I finished with a smooth Panna Cotta served with Poached Strawberries. A couple of glasses of Matt's stunning Seville Orange Liqueur... More

We have eaten here several times and always enjoyed the food and atmosphere.The starter of Monkfish tail tempura was the best I have ever eaten. My friends and I always enjoy it here.

Watch Matt's shows on TV but hadn't visited The Foxhunter before. Lived up to expectations, food is simple and delicious, you can tell he uses all the best quality ingredients. The bread is amazing. We had white peach salad which was sublime, and the steak was the best I've tasted in a long time. Service is relaxed and fun, the... More

Having tried various other restaurants in the area , such as The Walnut Tree and 1861 ( our favourite) we were looking forward to eating at the Foxhunter. We arrived on a lovely Friday to find the restaurant surprisingly empty - only one other couple eating. First impressions were that the restaurant has been thoughtfully and attractively designed and furnished-... More

6 June's menu was (as always), absolutely full of tempting combinations. I had never tried Razor Clams, so to find them on the menu was brilliant. They were served with a lovely, spicy Chorizo. Next was Pork Loin With Bubble & Squeak And Salsa Verde - gorgeous! To follow was creamy Lemon Posset With plump Strawberries And crisp Cantucci -... More

We got greedy with the starters as they all appealed so much which was our mistake, very tasty & very healthy portions so excellent value too. The pasta & ragu delightfully rich & creamy texture was my favourite. I couldn't do the main course justice and certainly no pud. I like the fact it is straight forward honest food both... More

Had an amazing meal at this lovely place - great to see Matt Tebbutt there and his lovely wife and everything on top form! If you are in the area and a foodie, well worth a visit!
