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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
