Visited here with family last night. The service was good although it was busy and the food was great! I'd recommend the lemon meringue roulade.

Took the mrs there for Valentine's Day and the service was brilliant staff was so friendly and the food was on next level. One of the best meals I have ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend it to anyone

In view of the absence of my wife, who was out on a jolly with her friends, I decided, some time after finishing what I maintain is the best espresso-fortified cafe latte in this area, to stay on for lunch. An olives starter might seem expensive at £4.25, but these were delicious and served in a very generous portion on... More

We decided to check this out instead of going to the Talbot due it s good TA reviews. Well it is a pleasant little place with a good ambience and excellent staff, but the food lets it down a bit. The starters were a shame. I had whitebait which was good but not served with any bread (extra), my wife... More

First of all thankyou for taking time to review our restaurant although I disagree with some of your comments. Firstly you forgot to mention in your review that your wife was on a diet and she didn't want oil in the seafood salad. As you seem to know your food I thought it would be obvious to you that an...

We ate lunch here just after boxing day, the restaurant was very friendly and our service was excellent. We ate the fish and chips and it was delicious. It is the first time that we have eaten here and we will defiantly go again. Mixed fish starters were great and cooked to perfection.

Nice restaurant with a good atmosphere, tucked out of the way. Staff were super friendly, however service was super speedy which spoiled it a bit. The starter arrived minutes after ordering and mains minutes after it was cleared - we prefer to have pauses so we can take our time over food and chat, but we were in and out... More

We have visited Dexter's on several occasions; the lunch menu is good value although the selection pales in comparison to the full menu. My daughter is a huge fan of the mussels in cream and garlic sauce (which she orders every time), the steaks are tasty, and the sweet-potato fries are the best I have had (crispy, which is apparently...

Broke a long journey to lunch in this town and struck lucky! We had a warm and friendly welcome, and some very good fish. We shared some sardines as a starter and there was plenty for both of us. I then went for classic fish and chips while my partner went for sea bass. Both dishes were excellent, as was... More

The lunch menu is a bit limited but our pasta with meat balls was nice and tasty and there was plenty of it accompanied by a tasty tomato sauce. The only down side was the lack of adequate heating as the restaurant was a bit cold.

Thank Dexx

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
