Excellent staff & service even had a chat with the chef Matt Tebbutt, really nice down to earth bloke, purchased one of his cook books which signed for us. I had been told it was very expensive, it's not cheap but I have paid a lot more for food that does not even begin to compare to this place. it... More

Six of us went for my mother's 80th birthday. A bit of the beaten track to put it mildly! Lovely old building and a cosy restaurant. The food was excellent . What finished it off perfectly was the absolutely delicious birthday cake using Matt's special recipe. And it looked fab too. Would go again tomorrow if it was nearer.

Just back from another stunning meal at The Foxhunter. Yet again, the service & food could not be faulted - from start to finish, the team were brilliant! Lisa was on hand to answer a couple of question about the menu, and Matt came out from the kitchen to talk me through some of the dishes - wonderful service. I... More

As per my previous visits we had great service and beautiful food, especially the tasty venison dish and perfect saffron risotto. It was a friend's birthday so we had a nice touch of the candle on her dessert which was lovely! Matt also came out for a chat later which was the perfect end to an amazing meal. Always one... More

After reading Nick Lander's review in the FT, were very keen to try Matt Tebbutts highly acclaimed restaurant. We were delighted to find that all our expectations were met. The atmosphere was cosy and the service relaxed and friendly. We chatted to Matt about his recommendations on what to order...and ended up with him making us some specials dishes not... More

Their bread is always amazing and the red onion focaccia was particularly delicious. The squid risotto was sublime and the hake with razor clams and brown shrimp was just perfect. The service is always fun and relaxed ...we always have a great time at The Foxhunter!

Fabulous evening again at The Foxhunter. Very cosy with log burner and tea light candles everywhere. Had an amazing starter of scallops and artichoke purée ..cooked perfectly. They made a fuss of my husband and the birthday cake we had ordered had been beautifully decorated by Matt and was absolutely delicious. Everything was perfect as usual, hoping to be back... More

Marked decline in standard from last year. Starters took 30 mins to serve, scallops were raw and served in a cold broth which evoked thoughts of dish water. Apparently this is a "signature" dish! Then after a further 45 mins and no main courses in sight, decided to leave only to be told by the hostess that she felt I... More

My wife and I along with friends visited this establishment last night. It was very quiet as only ourselves and one other table of two were there. The only front of house person was I presume the owner. We had drinks on arrival but had to wait a while for another as she forgot about my order. The wine we... More

We took our friends to the Foxhunter for their 40 th Wedding Anniversary. . Food choices very poor and prices extortionate . No French fries available with the steak Nd the plate was just filled with lettuce . No atmosphere which is no shock as the meal for 4 cost £250 . This was without wine . Most disappointing and...
