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**

Enjoyed the amazing food. Beef Wellington beautiful, wish I could make mash like that. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in our town. Slight negative. Thought the smoked salmon could have benefited from a drizzle of lemon and there was a bit too much salt sprinkled over the butter with the bread and butter, not a big deal as its easy to scrape off. Service was excellent but not intrusive. Have recommended on facebook.

Pleasant restaurant surroundings and good service. Food was well prepared and presented but, on reflection, we feel that the portion of pork belly in our meals was too little for the price and very fatty in proportion to the amount of meat.

We really enjoyed the food (the chicken pie was delicious!) and the service was excellent. My only complaint was that I couldn’t quite manage a dessert. Next time! Thank you for a lovely evening.

Fish and chip Friday at the Falcon. You must give it a try. Beautifully cooked flaky white fish, light crispy cider batter, chips to die for, hot and fluffy inside whilst browned and crunchy outside. Pease pudding was an unexpected side, but worked well. Other dishes and delicious veggie option of roast cauliflower with blue cheese and walnuts, which was really good, also served. Great service, great atmosphere, We really enjoyed our evening.

Another delightful evening. One of our members has commented: great venue and super evening. So many little touches made it feel like proper fine dining. Great table plan so we all chatted and laughed.
