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
