Charming bistro tucked away in picturesque Oundle

Oundle is an unexpected charm in itself, with its historic stone buildings framing its narrow main street and market square. Dexters is tucked away off that square, with free parking right outside after 6pm. Dining is available indoors and out (weather permitting!) with a charming ambience and... read more

Oundle is an unexpected charm in itself, with its historic stone buildings framing its narrow main street and market square. Dexters is tucked away off that square, with free parking right outside after 6pm. Dining is available indoors and out (weather permitting!) with a charming ambience and friendly but unobtrusive service. The menu is varied but compact, suggesting freshly-prepared rather... More

We took a friend out for a celebratory meal on spec, to Dexters. We hadn't been before and just took pot-luck locally. Oh boy, have we been missing out!! We're all non-meat eaters but we were spoiled for choice. Even if you are a meat eater - try their Sesame seeded tuna steak and noodles... Yum!! In the end we... More

So much choice on the menu, we decided to skip starters because we had heard that the portion sizes were very generous for main meals. We weren't disappointed, our dinners were huge, I couldn't even manage a dessert afterwards so we just had a coffee to round off the meal. Very efficient and friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble.... More

We called in here as soon as it opened when attending an Oundle Festival event. Several tables were reserved but as it was fine we sat outside. Other customers came and had pre-dinner/pre-evening out drinks outside also. It is a large outside area so presumably it is a popular venue. Unfortunately the main dish on the Specials board was unavailable... More

Had a craving for a burger and after a quick Google found this little gem! Food was amazing! Had the Classic burger which was huge and completely beat me! Service was excellent and when we got the bill we were convinced they must of made a mistake! So reasonable. Will be back to try the tapas soon!!!

Great food. Best burger I have ever had. Sat outside in the courtyard; really nice for a summer evening. Will definitely go back again.

Dexters is situated just off Oundle square. Great atmosphere. We really enjoyed the food here, but was shocked to see two ladies come in, order a cup of tea and then tuck in to the bag of food they purchased elsewhere.

After researching a nice restaurant for lunch we choose Dexters, and were not dissapointed. Restaurant was very busy with locals, always a good indication. Wide selection of dishes and some great specials on the board. Service was good, as was the food. Would like to visit on a sunny summers evening sitting outside in the courtyard, with a cold beer.

Just off the square in Oundle this bijoux bar/bistro offers a great range of drinks and food. Always busy. Not always open when we've turned up to eat.
