Great car very restaurant

I've been eating at The Huntsman for the past 20 years and the quality and quantity have never wavered. Great food (generously large portions), friendly staff and pleasing environment.

What a wonderful treat and an unexpected surprise to dine at this wonderful restaurant last night! A friend and I ventured into Dunchurch and I said that the Huntsman had been recommended on Tripadvisor and so we went and I just wish we lived locally because it was outstanding. Very attentive and helpful staff - charming waitresses with smiley faces... More

I have been to the Huntsman around 4/5 times now and have never been let down! Although it doesn't look much from the outside, the food and service here are both amazing! I have always visited on a Sunday and had the set menu, the range of starters and desserts are superb and they are constantly changed which is great... More

Second visit to the huntsman for a family birthday, it was absolutely amazing! 3 course meal for £23.95, the huntsman pie for starter is delicious! Carvery was amazing, meat cooked to perfection. Puddings were also lovely! The staff could not do enough for us and made us feel so welcome! We will definitely be retuning Thankyou to Andrew & all... More

Carvery is excellent and you can return for seconds, you need to book in advance, especially at weekends when it becomes very busy with limited room to move, on occasion they've been greedy and packed/sardined the tables too close together so that your having to ask quite a few people who are sitting eating to move so you can get...
