The quality of the food here is outstanding. Very big portions, but everything is so tasty that you find yourself battling through it even when you're full! A selection of 3 meats for the carvery, all cooked to perfection with friendly and welcoming service. I've been here 4-5 times now and it never disappoints. Highly recommended roast!!

The food here is fantastic I gone quite often, you need a big appetite as can eat as much as you want, I have never managed seconds but some do. Best roast dinner ever, you can get other dishes and you can take your pudding home with you if you have no room

We used to visit this carvery frequently in the late 1980's / early 1990's, for its outstanding carvery. Following our recent visit, I am pleased to say that just as it was outstanding then, it is still outstanding now. If you really want to know what prime cuts of meat, perfectly cooked, should taste like, look no further.

Been going to The Huntsman on and off for many years and delighted to say that last night it was just as good as ever. The carvery is a treat and the variety as ever all you could ask and then some more! If you want your beef pink then let them know when you book and they'll oblige -... More

The food is spot on, all three courses were very tasty. The carvery is the best I have ever had and I've eaten a fair few! The restaurant itself is very small and they have tried to fit as many tables in as possible which made it all a little too cramped. Especially having two little children with me. It... More

Came here for a family birthday lunch. The carvery is absolutely excellent, you get huge amounts of very tender meat and it's all very tasty and good quality food. Starters also nice. The service was a bit chaotic but they could be forgiven with a very youthful staff and a busy Sunday. For £25 per head it is expensive for... More
