About The Falcon

Nestled in the heart of historic market town Buntingford in Hertfordshire, The Falcon is a chocolate-box Grade II listed cottage that exudes character and warmth. Featuring exposed brick fireplaces and original timber beams dating from the early 1600s, this intimate country restaurant offers great food, friendly service and a cosy ambience. Focusing on local, seasonal produce, everything on the menu is sourced from nearby farms (where possible), and cooked fresh to order.

Run by a husband and wife team with 2 year old toddler Teddie at home, this family-run restaurant is Kieren and Natasha's first joint venture.

Kieren trained under Marco Pierre White at Quo Vadis and had a long and successful career in the restaurant kitchens of London before moving to the countryside to pursue his dream of having his own place.

* Please email Natasha at [email protected] to book one of the two beautiful private rooms (8-10 guests) or for help with making a booking.

Always surprised at the subtle menu changes. Special mushroom starter was lovely Rib eye steak was good, vegetarian dish tasty, nutty and yummy. We had the caramelized Apple tart special with ice cream for desert. Absolutely lovely. Maybe...the drinks are a tad expensive for some, but this little restaurant is well worth trying.

We had the most wonderful private lunch in the Oak Room, celebrating my birthday. Natasha and her team made us extremely welcome and really looked after us. The room was candlelit and atmospheric and the exposed vaulted ceiling was stunning. The food was simply sublime. We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning. Thank you!

Beautifully cooked food and good quality produce if a little simplistic in style and a fairly limited menu. Needs at least two more starters and mains to choose from. Good service. Would return for a simple supper but not for a special occasion as definitely lacks a wow factor.

Absolutely outstanding food and service, also was able to cater for one friend who has some food intolerance and normally would struggle with some menus.

We had a wonderful celebratory lunch. The food is cooked with care and attention and the service is always fantastic. We were really pleased and are coming back for another celebratory dinner. We are just gutted that we didn’t book in time for Christmas lunch!
