We were so impressed with everything from the moment we walked in. All the staff were so lovely and friendly and ultimately very professional, they made us feel so welcome & relaxed. Food was absolutely incredible, infact we talked about it all the following day. Thank you so much everyone for such a special evening with “Trust the Chef” from Ruth & Steve

We came in for the locals $40 deal to celebrate 3 of our birthdays. Really great night - perfect food and top rate service from our very nice waiter. Great way to promote your restaurant - we have lived locally for 4 years and hadn't thought to come so thanks for the reminder that you are still there! We will be back! PS we came about 15 years ago and loved it too :)

Thank you to the Hunting Lodge for making my Birthday dinner so special. My guests all enjoyed Trust the Chef, wine matched which was beautifully presented and delicious. Special consideration was slso made for one vegetarian guest in our party. The service was both personal and attentive. Thank you, Irene Deacon

The meal we had in the restaurant at the Hunting Lodge on Sunday was simply stunning. The clams and flounder were so fresh. Service exemplary. WE would certainly come again. The meal is one of the best I have had in recent years.

We ordered a bottle of wine but the waitress came with one that was already open and had less than half left which she poured out. We asked her about this and I think it was then replaced with a full one. Seemed odd.

We had a lovely dinner for our anniversary. We opted for the set menu. I am vegan and they were able to really deliver an amazing alternative for me. We will be defiantly going back!

Thank you to Hollie and her Team for accommodating our booking requests. We had a very pleasant evening in such a beautiful surrounding. The food was outstanding. We were a big group and you went out of your way to accommodate 3 different dietary requests. This was greatly appreciated. We look forward to returning for another work function in the future.
