  • ((((( 11 December 2018 by Kathryn from Seahouses

    We arrived earlier than our allocated time slot which wasn’t a problem and we were sat at lovely table in the window. My mum and I had a ‘pimp my prosecco’ which was lovely but possibly what would’ve made it somewhat better for us was if we had the options as unfortunately we weren’t overly keen on the elderflower gin- this wasn’t a problem simply a suggestion. A scrumptious lunch and thank you to the two members of staff who helped me with the Uber app.

    We loved our visit so much we’ve booked again for the 23rd. Well done to all the hard working staff you’re what makes this place great!!!

    Another fabulous time at The Huxley thank you. Our servers were all brilliant again this week, very patient as some of our group were a little late and really accommodating with all of our questions.

    It was a bit slow to start with. We had to go and ask for our menus and again to order some drinks, but after that everything was excellent. Our servers were all superb, the breakfasts were really good. Already looking forward to coming back next Saturday!
