We went to this restaurant a few weeks ago after receiving a gift voucher from some work colleagues. The food was fantastic, with great hosts offering attentive service. A place not to be missed!

Friendly owner, knowledgeable about his menu and wines. Excellent Sunday lunch. Limited choice, but well executed. Tender beef. Delicious vegetables, especially the red cabbage.

What a beautiful little place. An excellent venue for a special occasion but I only say that because it is very select and you will likely need to book if there are a few of you, but you could go there for any reason. A very nice menu with all dishes homemade and a nice variety to choose from. Service... More

Just back from the Huntsman - what an absolute gem ! Unpretentious excellent food - the best fillet steak I have possibly ever had (& that's saying something) from the minute we walked in to the time we had to leave it was a pleasure.

This was my 3rd time to the Huntsman, after 2 strong visits I decided to dine here on Sunday with my Sister and partner. I love the great customer service, where nothing is too much trouble.

Must say you're never disappointed when you visit the Huntsman,everything is of a high standard. Ambience,lighting,service and quality and quantity of food is perfect. If you have a starter and main you'll be lucky to have room for a dessert. Definitely worth a visit.

We had dinner at the Huntsman having just moved to Dinas Powys and it was an excellent first experience. The food is superb, home cooked and plenty of it. The setting is traditional and our host Peter is extremely friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be returning for many more meals.
