One of the best stared meals we have had for a long time. The Raby Hunt offers a wonderful meal in a relaxed location. Well worth a visit

My partner and I went to the Raby Hunt for a special celebration. The service was excellent and the food just as good !! Our evening lasted almost 4.5 hours and we had the 9 course tasting menu. I particularly don't like oysters so that part of the menu was changed for me without question. We are on a 'Michelin'... More

Visited the raby hunt recently with my husband and a couple of friends. We started with drinks outside and looked over the menu. The taster menu seemed too good to miss and we were not disappointed! Each course was perfect- beautifully presented and tasted amazing! I don't really eat fish but the razor clam dish was the highlight for me!... More

A friend suggested that we stay and eat at the Raby Hunt on our way back from a break in Northumberland. Her recommendation was based on a conversation with one of her suppliers, who also supplies the Raby Hunt. The welcome we received was first class. Craig the Manager came out to the car park to greet us and offered... More

We decided to try the Raby Hunt so we went there for lunch. When we go to an establishment like this we expect top quality ingredients, presentation and the price of the meal to be what it says it is ie lunch £30. Lunch was priced at £30 and overall the food was very good with clean intense flavours, the... More

What a fantastic evening , the 9 course tasting menu with matching wines was wonderful. High quality food, beautifully prepared, amazing taste and not over complicated! The service was attentive, the explanation of the wines and how they complemented the food knowledgable and interesting and we really appreciated the lift back to our hotel

Our pre-booked lunch experience for two was very mixed. We had pre-lunch drinks outside and were presented with a very limited food choice comprising a tasting menu or a three course menu. The three course menu offered a choice of two starters, fish or duck as the main course (and rack of lamb at a £7/person supplement, but only if... More

Perfect serivce and amazing food!! Had the tasting menu and it was very enjoyable. They paid such interest in the food for our vegetarian friends also - which is sometimes overlooked. Can't wait to revisit!

While in the UK, we ate in 8 Michelin starred restaurants. This was one of several restaurants where we found the food to be on the whole just confusing. There seems to be a tendency in the UK to try to do too much with a dish such that the essence of the key ingrediant is lost amongst the other... More

My husband and I visited The Ruby Hunt for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As we arrived, we were greeted by the lovely restaurant manager Craig who took us to our room. The room was clean, comfortable and modern. We went down to the champagne bar to enjoy some of the drinks on offer, after we'd settled... More
