Whilst the meat and potatoes were great there was a poor selection of vegetables - only carrots and cabbage. What kind of... read more

This restaurant had been highly recommended to us. The chef was very friendly and carved off large portions of good quality meat. The roast potatoes were delicious too. Whilst the meat and potatoes were great there was a poor selection of vegetables - only carrots and cabbage. What kind of carvery doesn't offer broccoli, cauliflower cheese or roasted parsnips?

So I have been here three times in the last year and have been very impressed with the overall quality of the food, the carvery is delicious with tender meats and lovely veg. I cannot fault this place, other then once going and the guy in charge was very stroppy with the other younger staff, this put me on edge... More

Came to the Huntsman with my wife and 2 young children and there is no doubt that this is the best carvery around!! The choice of starters and desserts is big enough for everyone's taste and all really good. The main carvery is very very special, with the meat some of the best I've ever tasted in any restaurant!!

After visting the Huntsman several times, I wanted to get my family on board, so we went for Boxing Day lunch. My little sister complained about the price £35 beforehand, but I told her to wait and see. It's safe to say that the staff were excellent, despite being extremely busy, they were very friendly and efficient. The food was... More

I've been to the Huntsman maybe 10 times and each time is the same high standard, even on a busy Boxing Day lunchtime. This is your traditional carvery but what stands out from the rest is the high class products they use - locally sourced meats and veg including 21 day mature rib-eye beef which melts in your mouth.

The roast meats on offer (on an "all you can eat" basis) were turkey (near Christmas) smoked turkey, pork and beef. I tried them all, and I thought they were very good, especially the beef. The joints which are roasted are large, and I have always found that this makes for a better roast joint than small ones do. The... More

My fiancé took me here when we had a child free afternoon, as I do enjoy a good Sunday lunch. The starter was lovely, although a bit big if I must complain - especially as its followed by an all you can eat main. And I wish I had of known before ordering it, but you can actually request to...

We returned to the Huntsman for our staff Christmas lunch (this is our main venue for this event) and were not disappointed, A few new starters and desserts on the menu, but the old favourites are still in place with the usual amazing carvery. The meat is second to none, with beef, pork, turkey and sausages and you don't just... More
