End of holiday meal and not disappointed started with whitebait, home made not frozen, followed by burger and meat paella and of course deserts. The atmosphere was great, the staff friendly and helpful and as stated the food excellent. We will return soon

I was hoping for a lot more food wise. Wine list quite limited but it was the food I was most disappointed by. Gambas to start, they came far to quickly to have been cooked as I would have hoped and came out of shells, I fear they were neither grilled or fried based on taste and texture. Strange sauce...

I chose Palma Ham and Melon - nicely presented and very taste. My main was Seafood Paella, again very good and plenty of seafood. Further... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday and had difficulty choosing as the menu has so many tasty choices. We ordered the fish finger sandwich which was delicious. The service was great and the food arrived promptly; we will visit again.

Went to Dexters for lunch with my wife, based on good TA reports. Excellent location in the middle of this beautiful Town. There is a good range of foods for all occasions. The lunch was well presented by the excellent staff and there was more than enough to keep us going for the rest of the day. We were both... More

A beautiful, clean & bright restaurant. The chicken dishes we had were well-presented, very tasty & not over-facing. The staff were very efficient & friendly.Drinks were a tad expensive for us Northerners!!

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
