A HIDDEN GEM IN THE HEART OF OUNDLE...... We strive to serve locally sourced and where possible produced food, our meat comes from Trendalls next door and is free range where possible, our baker is The Small Bread Company also next door, whos flour is all organic and made with love, our grocer is Normans, and our fish comes fresh from the boats from our merchant in Colechester.
Whether you want a casual lunch, a light bite, sandwich or coffee through to our evening dinner service we will provide you with fresh,delicious produce. And in the milder weather our stunning outdoor terraces are the perfect oasis to while away some quality time, or just sit and sip cocktails into the evening, and nibble on some sharing platters or tapas.
Food service is 11- 2.30Pm monday to saturday and evening is 6-9.30Pm although we are open from 11-11pm for drinks,coffee,cocktails and cake.
We look forward to serving you soon

Under new management, new menu, same great staff

This has always been one our favorites in Oundle. We were worried that the food would change. The menu did change a bit without any compromise. I have only one minor complaint... we were given gift certificates that were not honoured by the new management. I would assume that since they bought... read more

We had to beg for a table at late notice and had not eaten here for over 12 months. The decor has changed for the better giving a more contemporary appearance. Both the food, wine and service was excellent and well worth another visit.

We needed an early evening meal in Oundle and Dexters were happy to accommodate us. With a cheerful welcome and comfortable seats we enjoyed looking through the eclectic menu. Choices made we enjoyed the fare, the chat and the ambiance. We shall be back. Thank you Dexters.

Coming here with my family I was quite optimistic about this restaurant... Boy was I wrong! Firstly the food is not fresh at all, everything is made from frozen food found in Iceland or Tesco's. The worst thing I had there was a disgusting cheesecake (not homemade obviously). This cheesecake was not even a cheesecake, it was chocolate butter with... More
