We were lucky enough to sit at the kitchen table and loved seeing the way the food was prepared. It really added to a lovely meal. I was asked what my favourite course was but it was very difficult as each course was excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. Breakfast the next morning was also very nice and well presented although I’m not sure I did it justice as I was still full from the previous evening. We had originally booked in March when we were supposed to be going on to join family in Penrith. Covid put paid to that so we had to make a special trip to visit and it was well worth it! The room was also spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a special evening
Thanks for an exceptional evening of great food in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. The food was exquisite with such depth of flavour better than Lenclume in my opinion just brilliant. Waiters friendly and informed which adds to the occasion.
I am leaving this review as regards to the accommodation as it seem to be often missed as the restaurant gets all the limelight. The rooms are spacious enough to be very comfortable and well lit. High quality bathroom. The sleep quality is very good due to the remote location. The breakfast is absolutely outstanding may I add. Parking on site is available with spaces around the place. All in all a very good quality accommodation
The food was fantastic. The service was a mixed bag. Polite staff but served people in chaotic order. We had several different waiters over the evening which seemed abnormal. We waited more than 30 minutes between sitting down and being served. Since I had the paired wine menu this wasn't due to come until the second course so we sat at our table for 30 minutes with nothing. Quite stingy with the wine on the paired wine menu considering it was £105. Food was very good, wine was good, service overall average. At £450 for 2-people I think not great value for money especially as only 1 of us was drinking wine.
After much anticipation we finally got ourselves to the Raby Hunt. There is always the danger that so many good reports from other people would build your expectations to the point that it would be impossible to achieve. This was not the case - worth every penny for what was a food “event”. Great staff and exceptional food.
