Excellent Sunday Lunch

We visited this charming rural pub on a Sunday afternoon in late April. We were aware of its amazing reputation but were also aware the celebrity chef had since departed.

Foxhunter Inn has returned to being a pub and a very good one it is too. Excellent food and drink and a very warm welcome from the new people Sue and Alan. We have been a few times and will visit again regularly. They also have accommodation in two cottages.

Bit worried about what the changes would bring, but no need. Sunday lunch was excellent and so reasonable...not worth cooking at home from now on! Love the new bar. They are still doing work on interior and garden, will be a good excuse to go back soon and see how it's all coming along. Real ales, warm welcome...all the right... More

Well Matt has gone and taken with him any need to travel far for his superb food. What is now on offer can be had in most pubs with far better service. Sorry I won't make the effort in future.

Visited the Foxhunter near the end of 2014 and really enjoyed our family meal there (I did do a review at the time but it since seems to have disappeared from Tripadvisor). We stopped by on our way to visit family on Saturday lunchtime and were surprised to find that the place had changed hands. The welcome was warm but... More

Went with a small family group. New owners who were very friendly and welcoming. Nice real ale. Enjoyed the fish pie and my son said his steak was one of the best he had ever tasted. Would be good if they had a light bite menu such as sandwiches . Hope locals support this pub and it is successful

we like this place! Always have and the food is sublime. Service has never quite been the same since they lost their wonderful sommelier RIP. Hopefully a few more mature waiting staff would add credibility to superb food. Well done Matt☺️

Visited the Foxhunter for it's last service to the public on Friday 9th of January and it sure was an experience I will never forget. Due to the weather, the Nantyderry area was without power the whole night which obviously was heartbreaking for the chefs and staff. Nevertheless, they acted in the most professional manner and improvised in the best... More
