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 (8-12 guests) or for help with making a booking.

**PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOW CLOSED FOR OUR JANUARY BREAK, REOPENING FRIDAY 10TH JANUARY 2020**

Don’t know why we waited so long to try this gem of a restaurant right on our doorstep. The food is exquisite, the service delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We’ll be back soon!

An unusual experience as the restaurant is just coming out of lockdown and currently serves takeaway from a Deli counter too. But what's important? Food Service Ambiance Food - an understandably limited menu of "proper", well made, seasonal, high-quality food. no complaints at all. Service - personable, friendly, engaging. Ambiance, a really nicely thought out interior with quality cutlery,equipment etc. AS we get back to "Normal" I can only see it improving. We will be back.

Had the most lovely evening. Service & staff first class, so friendly helpful and knowledgeable. Food was exceptional as well as the ambience. I was surprised that we were the last customers still in there at 21.30 even though earlier was quite busy. This would not stop me from returning.

Lovely meal and atmosphere. Only down point was that no veg mentioned on the menu in description of meal or as a side option so wrongly assumed it would come with it, unfortunately it didn’t. Other than that it was a lovely meal for 2 with some tasty food.

The Falcon is a very welcome addition to Buntingford High Street. We experienced our first supper club experience last week and I highly recommend it.

We had a truly special lunch to celebrate my partner’s birthday. The food was delicious, the beef and pork belly were cooked to perfection and we couldn’t resist sharing the apple tarte tatin. Natasha was a wonderful hostess - we’ll be back again soon
