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 a 21 month old baby 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.
Natasha & Kieren also host a Wednesday night seasonal dinner series, with asparagus and lamb the recent stars of the show. Guests are served a delicious 5 course menu with accompanying wines, in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.
Future dates for the diaries are: 5th June (70s Classics!), 26th June (Summer Solstice Dinner), 10th July (British Classics Dinner), 24th July (English Wine Dinner).
* 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.
Falcon has made the best of a small intimate space. The food choice was good but the standard, taste and presentation was outstanding. The wine and drinks list varied and interesting. The front lady was welcoming, informative and friendly. The waiting staff were on the ball but not ready to pounce which was perfect. We really enjoyed our evening. Don't be put off by the price it's well worth the experience.
Meals cooked to perfection. Service very prompt. We will be back!
Delicious Sunday lunch in a lovely setting. The menu choice was excellent and all courses were well presented and of a high standard. The service was excellent and very professional. We will definitely return soon
Great food and wonderful ambient. A real find in the heart of this picturesque market town that would compete with any fine dining in London.

We visited on a Thursday evening when they had just introduced the steak night, it was busier than we expected. The restaurant has a good atmosphere, especially the front section which is more ‘buzzy’. We found the service to be excellent, welcoming and knowledgeable. The food was good and we thought well priced for the type of restaurant this is. We would return and will recommend to friends.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service and look forward to welcoming you back.
Lovely food in a nice atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and attentitive. So nice to find it's still a good place to eat. Been visiting this premises since it was Brunel many years ago. Too many places in Buntingford closing down and becoming private houses or barbers. I hope The Falcon goes from strength to strength.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit and the food, and would like to thank you for your well-wishes too.
My guests and I greatly enjoyed our meal. The food was excellent and the service exemplary, unobtrusive, but kind and considerate. We much appreciated being able to look over your splendid town house. We wish you every success for the future.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review and for your kind wishes also. We are all very happy to hear you enjoyed the food and service.

Had a great meal
Louis deserves 10 stars
We had a great meal but felt it was a touch expensive for what we got and the roast beef was very fatty, hence the 4* for food and drink.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We value all feedback and your comments on the roast beef have been past onto the chef. We are delighted that otherwise you had a great meal and hope you welcome you back.
Service charge considered to be high set at 12.5% appreciate this is stated as optional but personally I did not feel comfortable in making an issue on our first visit. But may well question this when we return.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The service charge is discretionary and we would be happy to discuss any issues that you may have. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Please do not add 12.5% service charge automatically. For good service we will tip generously. We do not want to have to complain to avoid tipping. We had a wonderful experience in line with the other two times so far that we have visited The Falcon. Thank you for a lovely evening! David and Jorita Baldock
Food was great and the overall atmosphere was great. Will be going back for sure.
