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.

We were received by the host with a very warm welcome, and it stayed warm and attentive all throughout our dining time. Food and ambient, both of great taste.

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!

The falcon is a fabulous dining experience Natasha, front of house is so lovely as are the waitresses. You are cared for the moment you walk in. The food is faultless and obviously the chef has great pride in what he presents. There is a great menu that caters for everyone. I love to visit with friends or family. There are also private function rooms. You really should try it.

Everything tasted fresh and it had an 'at home' comfortable dining feel. Will certainly be going back to sample the fish and steak nights. Jon & Nicky Bartlett

Cosy and romantic atmosphere, food was spectacular and the owner and staff were an absolute pleasure. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion (a little on the expensive side but well worth it for that special celebration) The function rooms upstairs look amazing would be a definite for a family gathering,full of character and old beams everywhere. Made my wife's birthday complete, we loved it!
