You won't find a better carvery!

Lovey cosy place! Good choice of starters although the orange juice is the best bet as there is so much at the carvery that it's hard to eat it all... It is a set price, so it doesn't matter if u have one or three courses, you pay the same and they will let u take your pudding home if... read more

We use live 5 mins away and use the Huntsman for a guaranteed good meal. This time we went day after Valentines for lunch and had an absolutely superb meal as always. Great table with some privacy, lovely oldy worldy atmosphere, fantastic - probably the best carvery anywhere. As much as you want, and come back for more, everything is... More

A great Sunday treat place. Been here a number of times over the years for the 3 course Sunday carvery. The food is always good quality, always 3 meats plus sausages, yorkies and other accompaniments, the staff are friendly and provide great service, and their ice cream is fab too!

Food is excellent - took friends who had never been and it is now their favourite ever restaurant! As usual, too much meat on the plate but the crackling is to die for, and my husband adores the hand made sausages.

We have been visiting this Carvery for the past 25 years and it never disappoints. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and the ambience of this place is fantastic. Make sure you don't eat lunch if you are going for dinner as the servings are extremely generous. The home made starters and sweets are delicious but the real treasure... More

If you are looking for Quality as well as quantity look no further. A great carvery where the chef carves the roast and always put more that enough on your plate. In fact little room is left for the vegetables which can finished overflowing the plate. Can get very busy at Lunchtimes on Sundays so would always book. There is... 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? The... More

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
