Best carvery in the country!

Went here Friday night with family. Haven't been for a year or so but always loved it and pleased to say it's as good as ever! If you like lots of food, this is the place for you. Huge portions, really tasty food - tender meat and the best mashed potato I've ever eaten! All topped with very... read 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

On the 19th March 2015 our party of 8 enjoyed a perfect evening. The staff were all very attentive and efficient. The three course meal was perfect. Cooked to perfection. We will most certainly be going again soon. , i

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... 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
