Description: New village 'local' to open. A new pub is set to open in the village centre, just a year after community campaigners failed to save the Forest Heath Hotel. The Silver Hind is the result of a major conversion project led by incoming proprietors Andy and Carol Cottingham, who bought the building in October. This 6 mouth old restaurant will be not only hosting a newly installed bar serving local ales but two fantastic menus running along side each other created by Head Chef and his brigade.! We also cater for any special occasions and run special menus,for all enquiries please call, email or come and see us!

When we first went in, we were not too sure as there appeared little atmosphere. It was very quiet. However we persevered and chose to eat from the Lunch menu with a choice of two courses for £10.95 or three courses for £13.95 we went for the two courses, (main and dessert), Our main course came, looked and tasted lovely....

We dined here on 4/9/14 and everything was excellent. The staff were professional, knowledgable and friendly and attentive. The food was excellent, served promptly but never so that we felt rushed and the ambience / layout etc were and great. We we will definitely go back to this place. Some reviews have criticised the interior and I cannot think why.... More

This is a hidden treasure of a place and knocks spots off the local competition in... More

A friend and I went to sample this restaurant for lunch after being recommended it. It lived up to the recommendation with very good service (thank you Jonty) and excellent food. We will return.

I don't care if the location isn't the best (what's wrong with Sway anyway?) or the bar is noisy (it is a pub after all), or that the dining area looks like somebody's front room, because the staff are very friendly and the food is great. I had an amazing beetroot sorbet with gravlax and then trout for mains while... More

We had traveled quite a distance to return to this very small establishment, and I'm glad to say it didn't disappoint. We started with walnut and blue cheese homemade bread, quickly followed with a cucumber gazpacho, which really helped to clear the palette before our meals. (None of this appears on the bill). My wife had the mackerel fillets with... More

We were a party of 5 and made a reservation for a meal in the evening. On arrival we were shown to our table around the corner from the bar. The Bar area was somewhat noisy but it is a pub. We all had starters and main courses and a bottle of house wine together with a round of pre... More
