Visited the Foxhunter for Sunday lunch,2 course £22.95 3 course £28.95.For starter I chose the braised oxtail with scallops which was very nicely presented(as were all dishes)but more importantly was delicious.Other members of our party chose the crab starter which was also very nice.Fresh bread was also brought to the table prior to the starter and was also very good.
For main meal I chose the Hake and Plaice bourride which,whilst a little unusual for a Sunday lunch,was very genorously portioned(I hate meagre portions that some of the better dining establishments offer)and tasted excellent.The lamb was also very tasty and came with roast potatos and a selection of fresh vegetables and a lovely gravy.
Two of us shared a strawberry trifle,it tasted very fresh with a delicious custard and cream topping,my only gripe was that there was too much liquid in the bottom of the wine glass in which it was served.
The beer was good,the wine list was extensive(It was also a little on the pricey side but not OTT)and I also enjoyed a very good glass of vintage muscat dessert wine.Coffee was also on the agenda.
The staff were friendly and attentive,the place was well decorated and furnished and the overall impression was very good.
I was also impressed that Matt Tebbutt was actually there cooking,so many top chefs associate themselves with an establishment but they will rarely,if ever,grace the kitchen with their presence let alone cooking skills
