First visit in 2017 but it won't be our last. Exquisite food and usual terrific service although the front of house staff had changed completely since we were last here. However they all knew their stuff and Chef once again excelled with a new tasting menu and accompanying wines. Another day another star but very reasonable pricing for a such... More

I was taken to the Raby Hunt as a surprise for Saturday lunch. From start to finish I could not fault it. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. We had the 10 course tasting menu. Every course was explained in detail and the sommelier was more than informative about his wines to accompany. Every course complimented the next. A... More

Went last night as a birthday celebration , never been a one Michelin star restaurant let alone a two . From start to finish this was an exceptional culinary journey with each small course bringing a further surprise to the taste buds. The 10 course taster menu had everything and while the courses were listed on the menu that was... More

The tasting menu is excellent no question each dish is very well thought through and great care taken in its preparation. The desserts are treated seriously with three separate dishes (one made up of 3 smaller pieces), both the head chef and the pastry chef have exceptional technical skill and eye for detail. If I was being over-fussy I would... More

One of my all time favourite restaurants. The staff where very polite, helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant was clean, modern and beautifully decorated. The tables where a good distance apart as well, the owner definitely hasn't tried to cram too many tables into a small venue. Now the food! The ten course tasting menu really had thirteen course which was... More

the tasting menu was very well executed and to be served by staff who so obviously were truly interested in the cuisine was truly refreshing! after our meal I had an interesting conversation with one young man who is expanding his knowledge going to 3 star Michelin Hotel and restaurant Pic in Valence Drome France! (Hopefully the Boss is going... More

We dined at The Raby Hunt on Saturday 28th January having waited to dine here. We were not disappointed it surpassed all expectations, atmosphere, food and service . A truly memorable experience which we look forward to repeating.

There is no doubt at all about the skill of the chef and his kitchen brigade and the front of house staff were excellent. For me, there was art work, interesting flavours and textures, beautiful presentation and service - but little substance. I can't say I was hungry when I left but I certainly wasn't satiated - and I'm not... More
