We've been coming to Dexters for over a year now but have never got around to writing a review...well simply put it's fabulous! Great food and service, if you are lucky enough to attend one of their music events they never fail to disappoint either. Meal deals are great, our personal favourites are the burger and the chimichanga, oh and... More

Service slow, only fish dish was 'off'. Lacking in atmosphere. Expensive for what we ate. Will not be hurrying back, except for the patio area when the sun is shining!

Like me a lot the restaurant, service, location and food. Good price. So I suggest to everyone go to Oundle for business or leisure. I suggest fish and chips.

Went in for some lunch, pretty limited menu but few interesting options. Was really disappointed with the quality of the food, pretty bland and just, well, average I guess. Staff were nice and the outside area is lovely. In balance, wife has been in before and loved it.

Have spent quite a few hours here for coffee/tea etc in the afternoon when meeting friends. Always good and pleasant service. Have also dined inside restaurant in winter and outside a few times this summer, which is a real treat in the pretty courtyard setting. Food is always reliably good, and portions are generous. Burgers a specialty - the pulled... More

Charming outdoor eating space. However, I wasn't that impressed with the menu. I also feel that the children's menu also needs tweeking. I would visit again and would love to try the tapas - it's a pity it's not available at lunch time.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate a successful cricket tour for my eldest son. Our family were made very welcome. My youngest son was tired so they packed his main meal up so he could eat back at the hotel rather than waste it. The food was top class and very reasonable. You can eat outside or in with a... More

Lovely little eatery / bar tucked away just off the main street in Oundle. Friendly and helpful staff. The food was good at lunch so we went back in the evening for dinner and thought we'd order from the Tapas menu. There was a fairly limited choice. Even more limited because it then transpired that 2 of the items (both... More

Though it also has seating inside, the courtyard is a best reason to eat here. We have just had a snack lunch but the menu looked extremely good value, at around £10 for a main course, and if the food was even close to as nice as my fish finger sandwich (home-made fish fingers made with fillet) and bread from...
