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.
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.
Very welcoming staff, fabulous food, lovely surroundings, the perfect combination. What more could you want. Thankyou for a lovely evening.
An excellent meal. The food was freshly prepared and the apple and fig cake was delicious 😋. The staff were very friendly and informative. A great afternoon with great friends. Thank you.
Sunday lunch was first class, veggie option wasn’t something I would have chosen but chef changed without any fuss and it was delicious.
I and my daughter along with different members of our family have been to the tuning fork on numerous occasions at different times of the day and have never been disappointed. On this occasion I and my daughter were taking a friend and her daughter out for an evening meal. They had never been before and were very impressed with everything about the place especially the food and the food that was on offer they will certainly be back we told them to come for breakfast and to bring her parents one afternoon for tea and cake. We will all be back.
This is my number 1 favourite place to go at the moment. The atmosphere, service and most of all, food are brilliant. I look forward to every visit. I love that the menu is so varied but such high quality at a reasonable price. Thank you for another lovely visit.
Though it was a quiet night we felt very comfortable we had some friends with us from Hertfordshire who loved the whole evening food amazing.
My family and I come here a lot, food and service always good. However, this Sunday my son and I were disappointed to see that you are no longer serving waffles
Utterly brilliant dining experience. Everything was perfect!
Lovely decor, friendly service and tasty food. One thing for me was that my friend is a vegetarian and she found the menu a bit limited for her. But overall we had a lovely lunch!
Excellent, as always
Celebrated my mother in law's 50th birthday at the Tuning fork on Saturday with all the family. The food was superb and everyone commented on how amazing it all was. Elaine and the team couldn't do enough for us all. Brilliant service!
excellent service, tasty well presented fresh food.
We always enjoy the excellent food and service. Thank you.
Great food and great service, as always. This was the first visit for our friends and they were really impressed with the whole experience.
Slow service but great food. Takes an average of 25-35 minutes to get served. Apart from that the food is worth the wait and atmosphere is great x
