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!

I'm afraid I can't comment on the food, as, although we were looking forward to eating here the kitchen was closed when we visited due to a fire. Despite this disappointment, we did have a drink and found that the place was very busy even without serving any food! The gentleman behind the bar was very efficient in dealing with... More

Normally I'm a little weary of turning up at local pubs for fear of being stared at by the locals, but this was so friendly and inviting we really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was decent gourmet pub food without being too over the top and desserts were delicious! Vegetarian options were good too.

Wanting a change form the normal 'Sunday Lunch' we tried the Silver Hind and it was a lovely change from the normal Sunday roast. The 'Hind being more of a Gastro pub than a village pub is very popular with the locals which is a good sign of a good eatery

Very nice meal nicely presented.. Good service with very pleasant staff. Only complaint was the restaurant was a little dark. No real lighting near our table and I struggled to read menu even with glasses on. Would definately go again

Went with my husband for an anniversary lunch here whilst staying in the area. I had rainbow trout and my husband had the roast dinner. Both were excellent quality and taste and we were both very happy with our food. I had the best banoffee pie I have ever had & I have had a lot! Absolutely delicious... The price... More

We had an extremely good lunch here. The goats cheese bruschetta was delicious. My herb crusted fish was a delight and I just about had room for a fantastic chocolate mousse. The service was really friendly and accommodating.

Booked a table this week and mentioned we would be bringing the dogs with us. arrived to find a small plate of dog biscuits waiting on the table... More

Great meal, arrived before the rush I think as very busy when we left. Very attentive staff. Veggie meals very good but quite rich ( would have been difficult to have 3 courses). home baked bread delicious.
