You're in Oundle doing the mid-week shopping, but fancy having lunch in Spain. Here's how: 1. Choose a warm, sunny day-that's the only difficult bit- and find a courtyard table at Dexter's. 2. Order a deep-fried squid starter with dip (£5.95) and a large glass of light white wine (£5.50) 3. Follow this with a seafood paella (£13.50) and a... More

We hired Dexters for a private party to celebrate 3 birthdays. Adrian and his team did us proud with a top class barbecue, great service, disco and entertainment ala Adrian. Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thank you Adrian, Marina, Daniella and all your staff, we'll definitely do it again.

We were looking for a lovely little place to stop for lunch one sunny Thursday, and we absolutely found it. The restaurant indoors looked very well presented and comfortable, but we opted for sitting in the sunshine in the courtyard outside. It was delightful! Lunch menu was reasonable, as were the selections of the main menu. We have a gluten... More

Lovely outside courtyard on a fantastic, warm evening but the food let them down a little. Enormous amount of garlic (tinned?) on the garlic bread and frozen chips! Would have expected better.

Despite visiting Dexters on a very busy weekday evening the service was prompt and attentive. We had the seafood platter for 2, seafood paella and meat paella which could not be faulted. Can't wait to go back!!

The rain came down and we went in. What a quirky decor it welcomed you in and the aroma of coffee made you want to stay. The cappuccino arrive and were deliciousness. Great coffee stop for anyone visiting. Idle.

The atmosphere was very relaxed, unobtrusive, efficient service with a smile. We started with a drink I had a French white and my husband had a local beer. The staff didn't rush us at all but we're aware as soon as we wanted to place our order. We shared the generous whitebait which was superb, served with lemon, mayonnaise and... More

A HIDDEN GEM IN THE HEART OF OUNDLE...... We strive to serve locally sourced ingredients for our dishes, our meat comes from Trendalls next door and is free range where possible, our baker is Santoros in Kettering our fish comes fresh from the boats from our merchant in Colchester.
Whether you want a casual lunch, a light bite, sandwich or coffee through to our evening dinner service we will provide you with fresh,delicious produce. And in the milder weather our stunning outdoor terraces are the perfect oasis to while away some quality time, or just sit and sip cocktails into the evening, and sample some sharing platters or tapas.
Food service is 11- 2.30pm monday to sunday (closed sunday eve) and evening is 6-10pm although we are open from 10-3pm for drinks,coffee,cocktails and cake.
We look forward to serving you soon....Adrian
