Superb :)

We visited last Sunday . Havn't been for years , and we were not disappointed . New layout meant a small but nice little seating / Bar area to sit in before being seated . Staff were very smart and polite . Food was excellent , chef carving was lovely . We only had 2 courses , but the deal... read more

We chose the Huntsman in Dunchurch for our annual belated Christmas family gathering. We arrived half an hour early and were promplty told that our table was not ready, I said that was not a problem as we knew we were early, there are majors roadworks on our route and we did not want arrive late. The food was superb... More

Having reached the age I am I have been to numerous carveries but this one is the tops for me. For starters the Huntsman pie was excellent. The carvery itself was delicious. The quantity and quality of the meat was unbelievable and the vegetables cooked to perfection. The price of the drinks was very reasonable. Although it was busy we... More

I visited The Huntsman with family to celebrate a birthday. You can't fault the quality of food especially the meat. There was mashed potato, roast potato, Yorkshire puddings, cheesy cauliflower and broccoli and carrots. I think there was enough variation and referring back to some of the other comments what other veg do you expect? You could go back for... More

Absolutely fabulous. The carvery was astounding both for quality and sheer size. It is definitely not somewhere to visit if you are light eater or watching your weight. The service was quick and the staff genuinely helpful. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

Visited here over the weekend, it had been sold to me as amazing but it wasn't what I expected, however that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you are expecting a traditional carvery pub with a huge selection - this isn't going to cut the mustard. It's more like a rustic restaurant which was fine my disappointment came with the... More

The meat and roast potatoes are excellent, but peas, carrots, and mash hardly constitute a range of vegetables, especially at the price which is high for the area. This was my third visit in the last two months and we saw no other vegetable on offer. As others have pointed out the serving staff are all very young and not... More

Visited the Huntsman earlier this week with friends. Yes the decor may be a little dated but the place is clean and the staff friendly and eager to please. High point is the carvery itself. Superb joints of pork, turkey and rib of beef carved in huge generous slices by the Cheff a friendly man who persuaded me to try... More

Have had the take away from here a handful of times it is always delicious and comes in big portions well worth the money on a lazy Sunday. I was lucky enough to be treated to a beautiful Valentine's meal here the staff were extremely welcoming and made us feel at home food was unbelievably good and we had a... More

Welcoming, friendly cosy carvery in the centre of an historic English village. Dunchurch is a culinary focal point and the Huntsman at the top of the eateries! Prepare for the feast you will all but roll out of the door the food is excellent and copious! If you are in the area give it a go!
