Description: 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

“Coffee with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Popped in for coffee and cake. Staff were very friendly and quick to serve. Offered a choice of banana, chocolate or fruit cake, all of which looked very tempting. Choose the fruit cake and was served a very large portion. Moist, fruity but a little under spiced for my taste. Coffee was very good and at just £3.75 my brief stay was good value. I'll be back to try something from their interesting menu.

“Always service with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We became regulars at the end of last summer, sitting out on the terrace with a good cocktail and good service.

The service is always good, nothing's ever a problem.

Food is always good - especially the amazing burger!

Just wish they were open Sunday evenings!

“Top notch - been back many times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

We discovered Dexters by accident last year, and have been back many times since. Hard to describe why we love it so much - but the staff certainly are a big part of it. We have never felt rushed. Even if just popping in for a coffee and a chat of an evening there is no pressure to get in and get out that you get with some places. The food varies and is well priced, and is cooked freshly. Some recent highlights include Venison pie, Thai crab cakes, and a Butter Bean & Chorizo starter. Yum! I can highly recommend their burgers too - but a tip is to ask for them how you like them as I think the default is rare/medium rare whereas we prefer ours cooked a little longer. Also - their cafe latte is excellent, as are their Earl Grey mugs of tea.

“Just boring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Dexter tempted me from same time. Outside looks lovely, good marketing... I have two small children, not to often going out for a dinner. When my sister wisited me with her little one - i had an occasion to go there for lunch. It was so boring!!! inside nothing special, not family friendly.Stiffly, no attractive menu, no interesting cakes, more evening alkoholic drinks in offer than nice coffe. Service poor, clearly not to happy to see two mothers with 3 small kids. I needed to ask for even little thinks, chlidren cutlery, extra glass itp. I did not enjoy this stay at Dexter - boring stiffly expensive
