About The Tuning Fork
You’ll find us in our brand new home at Dollman Farm, itself the heart of the new community of Houlton. Utterly inspired by the unique heritage that surrounds us, we’re serving up irresistible choices for breakfast, lunch, dinner (Friday & Saturday evenings), as well as delicious teas, coffees and homemade crafted cakes, seven days a week.
At a table in the window or a sofa in the corner, this is the slice of food heaven you’ve been waiting for. Meet up with friends over coffee or lunch, or bring the family for breakfast and discuss your future plans, tuning in to everything Houlton has to offer, today and tomorrow.
Just like our surroundings, our food connects us to our Houlton home. We work with local suppliers, pick the finest seasonal produce and prepare homemade food to order. Always fresh, always delicious.
Settle in on Sunday morning with a luxurious breakfast of smashed avocado & Dukkah eggs, served on Revel Bakery sourdough toast. We promise, you’ll wish every day could start here.
Calling in for lunch? Javanese mild fragnant curry with sesame fried chicken and basmati coconut rice or a sirloin steak sub:
8oz sirloin steak, sauteed mushrooms, balsamic glaze, goats
cheese, watercress and tomato, our chips and a side of bearnaise
sauce, for example, will have you wondering why lunch never tasted this good before.
Our Evening Dining menu on a Friday & Saturday night is also mouth wateringly good and a sample can be found on our website. The evening menu evolves throughout the year to mirror what is available from local & specialist suppliers.
* We serve Gluten Free. Diary free & Vegan options on our menu.
A group of 8 with two young children and 4 in their 70s and we felt very welcomed and catered for. We went on Sunday and enjoyed the roasts (Beef, Turkey and Hake was truly memorable), plus the Chillie prawns. Staff were very accommodating and the relaxed setting was good for the kids too (Sausage and Chips). One thought - if you need your beef well-done then ask upfront! It came a little underdone for one of our party, However the staff were wonderful about it and brought a replacement within minutes with a smile! Thank you for a great treat!
The best service I’ve experienced in a long time ... amazing freshly cooked food and the BEST cake ever ..... Thank you :)
First class in every way.
A very enjoyable meal enjoyed by the whole group. A very good selection of celiac dishes was on offer which makes life very easy for everyone.
It ws v busy and the eating area really quite crammed. Service was slow - it took 30 mins from order to receiving the food - but the food was very good and the service very friendly.
A very pleasant lunchtime experience. Excellent food and service. You can tell they take great care over their ingredients. Especially good for me as I have to be gluten free. Thank you!
Sunday roast was the best I’ve had in a restaurant, I don’t like the meat pink but they happily pan fried it for me. Shall be returning soon.
Great menu, fab food and lovely staff, look forward to returning soon.
Booked a table and were warmly welcomed. There was an excellent choice of food including several gluten free options. The food was well presented and very tasty. The service excellent. The staff were polite and friendly.
Delicious! I had the full English breakfast and it was excellent. The quality of the food was superb, especially the bacon. I also took two slices of the baileys & Guinness chocolate cake, which were delicious too!
We really enjoy coming to The TF always very busy see you again soon
Second visit and I was still so impressed with the menu choices, especially the specials, the food quality and the service. The lovely ladies organised a birthday brownie for my step father with a candle. A simple yet lovely touch which made lunch all the more special. Thank you!
Superb quality of food! As well as choices! Afternoon Lunch with team mate and we were both fully happy with the range and taste of food was magnificent!
A really great night out its lovely to have a restaurant that specialist in good food and were it comes from, l took a very close friend who had a great time thank you, l will certainly be going again Sheila
Have dined here several times lovely surroundings, friendly staff and good food cooked from fresh ingriendents would highly reccomend.
Delicious 'proper' food; ingredients tasted and looked high quality; generous proportions. Great service. I ordered scallop and pork belly salad but as the pork belly had run out I was given fillet steak (rare as requested) instead - a surf and turf salad which was scrumptious.
We really love this place, however, the service is always very slow whether they are busy or not. I appreciate that the food is cooked from scratch and that is one of the reasons we love it but the time it takes for someone to come over and take your order and also the time it takes someone to bring the drinks over is too long.
We were looked after very well, and had a brilliant night. Food was perfect.
Your food is amazing. Never fails!
Food and presentation first class Very friendly staff Well Recomended.
Very nice meal on Saturday evening, as always best quality very well cooked. Be back again soon
Finally, a place I can enjoy a decent steak and Malbec in Rugby. Always enjoy your coffee, cake, breakfast, lunch and now dinner - keep it up Scallops were lush with the bacon (maybe more bacon less green next time)
Fabulous food. Fabulous staff. Friendly and helpful. Very enjoyable brunch. Definitely will be going back.
Another delicious breakfast - will be back in a couple of weeks for another. Lovely setting and atmosphere
Always great food and good, friendly service.
