My husband requested a michelin experience for his birthday, and being in the North East this was the closest option available. I am soooo glad that this was the closest option though! What made the experience so perfect was the relaxed yet impeccably professional service, the team made us feel chilled out from the moment we got out of the car! When I booked I had got a good feel for the place, as I am mostly veggie but have started eating fish they put together a tasting menu especially for me, it was fabulous. My husband got the full 7 course tasting menu, and practically drooled as course after course of beautiful - like what you'd see on T.V - food was brought out. The head waiter had an excellent knowledge of wine matching as well - we just left it to him to bring out dessert wines which would compliment our strawberries and cream dessert and it matched perfeclty - finally we 'get' dessert wine! A glass of saki to go with the 'posh mars bar' chocolate dessert was a surprising yet equally good comination.
I managed to book us in for a nights stay but as there are only two rooms you will have to book up to 3 months ahead for a saturday night, fridays are not too bad. Ideal if you want the magic to continue - michelin breakfast too - bonus!
We will definately be back to the Raby Hunt, a non-pretentious, family affair whose passion is fine food.
