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...

We've been to Dexters a few times and it's been pretty good. However on visiting for coffee one Saturday morning a while ago as a party of 6 we were quite offended when one of the owners stated in a loud voice as we were leaving to another waitress "have those people paid?". Not only was it highly unprofessional but... More

Having been invited to dine with friends at Dexters & having never been there before I checked it out on Trip Advisor and was quite looking forward to going. Entering through a charming courtyard with outdoor seating I thought this was going to be something special. We opted to eat indoors as the evening could have turned a little chilly... More

Been going to Dexters for a Saturday evening meal for the last couple of weeks. We have eaten outside in the courtyard on both visits and had wonderful food on both occasions. You have the feeling of being abroad such a beautiful place and there are so many different things in the menu for are never stuck for choice. Well... More
