Great food and excellent staff

Had a lovely carvery meal here with a tasty starter and sweet to follow. The portion sizes are amazing, the beef perfectly cooked and Turkey moist. The roast potatoes are scrummy. The menu has plenty of choice and the service is quick and unfussed, just right for a tasty meal out.

I have bern several times over many years, and to be honest it has not changed one bit...Sunday Carvery is excellent, 3 courses £24.95. Excellent all round from starter to sweet...but the one thing that I feelit could do with is some new decor, its very 80's, dated ttable mats, napkins, even cutlery were very old hat. I appreciate the... More

Being local everyone knows the Huntsman. The local cuts of meat used are top notch. If your a big eater it is great value for money but not so much if your not. The decor is very dated and prob won't change whilst they are still getting bums in seats. Service very good. Overall not disappointing .

You will never leave this place hungry in fact you have to insist that the plate isn't piled high with just the meat. Service is good, the only bug bear is parking.

For absolutely ages now, i have been wanting to experience a meal at the Huntsman for a log period of time, and was incredibly excited to go try it out Sunday. I was so disappointed! Firstly, interior is okay. A little outdated and could do with freshening up, but okay i guess. I was impressed with the lovely service and... More

The Huntsman is a firm favourite among my friends and colleagues. Make no mistake, the quality of the food is great and the service is always good. Go when you're really hungry and it's good value for money. Best carvery around. I would highly recommend it to most so I don't mean to sound too negative, I just have a... More

Eat as much as you like ... 3 course evening carvery... Pretty hard to fault really. The starters and puddings are pretty standard, but the carvery was excellent. I had roast beef with all the trimmings and it was perfectly cooked for my taste. The staff were very attentive and made the dining experience very pleasant. Good job all round,... More

If you are looking for a special Sunday lunch, then this is the place to go. Superb quality food, awesome chilli starter and tonnes of food as much as you want. Not the same price as your average carver, but then this is exactly what this place is not - average! Service last time we visited wasn't top notch, but... More
