I booked this restaurant as a surprise for my husband on our first anniversary and I was not disappointed. We traveled down from Glasgow and stayed in nearby B&B and it was worth it. Although it is a 2 star the restaurant is had a laid back and relaxed atmosphere to it. The staff were attentive but not pushy. I... More

Amazing food, amazing venue. We had a fantastic family lunch at The Hand and Flowers. The staff were very friendly and made sure we were well looked after. The food was varied and very tasty. Although we had a time slot, the staff did not rush us out at all. Very accommodating. Thank you :)

Friendly welcome preceded good service and great food. All four of us loved everything we ate. Perhaps a mint or chocolate with coffee would have been nice, but we were full enough. I particularly liked my duck breast with a little duck meat sausage.

Went with 6 other people last night, had an amazing meal. From the complimentary white bait and gorgeous soda breads to start with, to starter, to main (which was the duck, never had it before but this was by far the nicest duck dish I have had) to the dessert, which, compared to the rest of the tables, wasn't as...

My wife and I visited with 5 friends I ordered the duck dish which tom won GB menu with, Ive had it before and it was amazing and the dish had completely changed on a plate rather than a board.

Absolutely blown away by the food, real top quality ingredients and the presentation was stunning. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, definitely still feels like a high end pub, not a snobby Michelin starred restaurant.

Having booked our table some eight months ago we were somewhat disappointed to be told two days ago when checking our booking that in fact the pub had no record of our booking. Once that hiccup had been solved we duly arrived today to find that our table was not ready at the arranged time, not a good start but... More

Myself and my husband ate here 7th July to celebrate our wedding Anniversary. We had to wait 9 months for a table but we heared really good reviews so thought it would be worth the wait, however we were utterly disappointed. The hand of flowers have a 2 hour turn around on tables but we were rushed from start to... More

This trip was booked months ago and involved a trip down from up north. We arrived early for the booking and were shown to the bar area where we requested pre- dinner drinks while we waited and we were waitress served. We were also given menus to peruse while we waited. Then we were shown to our table, the waitress... More
