Our Mission

Here at The Mad Hunter it is our mission to deliver an unforgettable and enjoyable dining experience to all our customers ranging from an intimate meal for two, a friends & family get together to special functions or events.
We believe that the worldwide travels of our Executive Chef/Owner Travis have provided him with extensive knowledge of varied dishes and his fusion cuisine combines elements of these different culinary traditions which he now brings to you here at The Mad Hunter.

Oliver, our Front of House/Owner, is well-versed in wine pairing, ensuring your food blends perfectly with the best wine for your enjoyment. Try one of his Gin cocktails, completing your memorable visit to The Mad Hunter.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Chefs Evening’s -take place at both sites throughout the year, make sure to check in regularly for updates and details. Our Chef Travis creates a unique dining experience using hand picked, seasonal and locally sourced produce to create a fine dining five course taster menu. You can also choose a wine package to complement the meal


This is a popular event so early booking is advisable. It will be a 5 course taster menu that will be sure to please!

We look forward to seeing you!
