We booked out New Year's Eve night out back in February as we'd heard such good things about this restaurant. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and presented with a choice of drinks and personalised menus that had lots of choice. We gave our orders for all 3 courses before being shown to our table. The room was nicely decorated and it wasn't long before the food was delivered. It was all delicious with good sized portions. The waitresses were excellent, very efficient and couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we needed. Near to midnight more bubbly arrived and hot snacks at 12.15 although we weren't the slightest bit peckish.
The first singer who entertained us while we were still eating was very good and we liked her choice of songs; the main band was also good and got everyone up dancing. The comedian had us chuckling on several occassions.
So, what was the not so good? Firstly, there were no party poppers, silly hats etc. Secondly, the band played through midnight so no sound of Big Ben and the 10 second countdown was about a minute late. Thirdly, there were several children present which isn't necessarily a bad thing but seemed quite inappropriate when the comedian was telling his 'blue' jokes. One of the children started to cry during his set which also spoiled the atmosphere some what.
Not sure it was worth the £90 each we paid and we won't be returning.

Booked our 2012 Xmas dinner after hearing the Hunters Meet hype. WOW! I was brought back to 1985 when my folks would take me for a Prawn Cock and Steak Chasseur up our local Berni Inn! This is by no way a bad thing. If you like that and obviously most of my evenings party revellers did then this place is for you. Warm, friendly service, basic food, chintzy decor. Even had a comic from that decade. Food was not for me, BUT these guys work bloody hard to make sure you enjoy yourself!!

Attended a works Christmas do and the food was ok but could have done with being a bit warmer the band and the comedian were very good the only gripe was that they crammed in as many as they could to such an extent that it was NIH on impossible to eat at the same time as the bloke sitting next to you

Food is great.... Entertainment always very good ... lovely venue. Have celebrated many a family occasion at Hunters Meet.

Brendon the Manager is always on hand, and makes it his duty to ensure that everyone has a good time !!

We popped out for Sunday Lunch and decided to try the Hunters Meet. We had not booked but this was not a problem. They offer a 4 course set lunch but we did not want this - again it was no problem.
We were shown to the bar area and given a complimentary glass of fruit punch whilst we ordered.
We ordered a starter and a main course and we were shown to our table.
The staff were pleasant and efficient and our starter arrived within 5 minutes. The main course arrived within 5 minutes of us finishing our starter.
The food was good, hot and well presented and the waitress checked twice that everything was OK.
We would return here again.
