Despite being packed to the gunwales we enjoyed a superb Xmas lunch, absolutely amazing that the quality of the "home cooked" lunch and the service could be sustained. With a huge selection of starters, main courses and desserts there was something for everyone in our party and it made for a superb Xmas Day.

I know the family on a personal basis and have done so for years. However this is based upon my stay and not my friendship with the family. We have lived in France and Spain and on our trips home have always stayed at the Huntsman. We use the same room each and every time. The welcome is as always... More

Stayed here for one night and received a warm and friendly welcome. The menu was varied and the food cooked well. The desserts were especially good as was the filet mignon. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. What makes the hotel stand out is the warm and friendly service.

Exceptionally good value with plenty of variety on the menu board for all tastes including vegetarian. Recently ate there and once again the same high standards you come to expect from this establishment, argentinian beef cut to new york style was not only cooked to perfection but also delicious. The choice of home made sauces in this case black pepper... More
