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.
Love the turning fork for all occasions, coffee and cake, brunch and the most fabulous Sunday lunch, all I need to now is dinner
Fantastic food, brilliant service, you get what you pay for and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.
I can thoroughly recommend the Tuning fork for Sunday Lunch. Delicious selection of vegetables with our duck breast which was a welcome change from the usual roast offer. (Turkey and beef were also available). Huge cake selection available for pudding. Lemon meringue pie was very good. A hot pudding choice would have been nice in winter.
Delicious , high quality food and great service. Love the use of the coffee sacks to dampen sound - great upcycling and looks good too. Would appreciate more plant based options (the mushrooms on toast are spectacular) and simpler / customisable- e.g. I love avocado and feta but not corriander and eggs as well is too much .
Lovely food and great service Slightly pricey but you pay for quality Decor makes it very noisy - would be useful to install some sound dampening
Had a delicious breakfast with friends. Friendly staff & a fantastic menu in a lovely building. Would definitely recommend :)
Love the food & service here but it can get rather noisy with the chatter. I was told they have started to try & address the acoustics. The quality of the food is always really good.
As the star rating indicates the whole offer was to a very good standard. The staff were especially good, courteous, friendly, on the ball & accurate. The food was to a good standard. I have recommended the Tuning Fork to many people and will continue to do so. The nature of the space is not conducive to a lunch business meeting though not sure one can do much about that. Thank you for a very pleasant lunch time.
I have never had a poor meal here until Sunday. My beef roast was terrible and produced with no finesse. The vegetables were piled one on top of another with the meat covered. Why were the vegetables not served in a seperate dish? We will not be coming back in a soon and certainly not on a Sunday
As always a lovely lunch. First time that I have used the online table booking and it was very easy.
Excellent meal as always. Lovely surroundings and friendly staff. Cater for everyone Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten free such a relief to find a menu that we can all access. Thank you
Very welcoming and comfortable place to go, food is always lovely and tasty, very good value for money, yet to go in the evening but we will make it there one night.
We had a fabulous time the five course Xmas Dinner was delicious we will be back thanks to all the staff
We enjoyed a fabulous Christmas lunch. Every single element of our experience was outstanding. We will be back.
Excellent find for a family gathering. Food was fantastic. Will visit again.
Always great food at the tuning fork. The atmosphere is buzzy although slightly noisy due to the openness of the room. Service is friendly and menu choice is good.
Lovely food ,could do with a few more veggie options . It is very loud due to the decor - installing some sound dampeners would be a very good idea .
Fantastic cake! We will definitely be back.
Great food, atmosphere and value for money
I took our staff (12) to The Tuning Fork were we had a wonderful christmas get together. Most had never been before - everyone loved it the food and cakes are amazing.
I literally think this was the best Sunday roast I’ve ever had!! it was truly wonderful, the perfect amount of all the trimmings and the meat was cooked to perfection!!!!
Excellent restaurant, first class service, friendly and attentive staff and the Sunday lunch is fantastic. Keep doing what you're doing
We were a party of 20 and couldn’t fault anything, food and service were great - will definitely be back
