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!

My friends and I came to the Silver Hind for our annual Christmas meal for the third time in a row and while each time it has been good this time it was the best yet. The service was efficient and friendly even though they had two large groups in. The food was really good and in generous portions. I... More

Seven of us went here for our annual Christmas party evening meal. Having not been here before we did not know what to expect however it must rate as the best Christmas party meal our group has had over the years. The restaurant was busy but the staff were attentive and friendly. Our food was exceptional, each plate for every... More

I went here with 10 other mums from area for our annual Xmas get together. The menu was ok and I'd submitted my choice throug the organiser. The starters came out and I had to ask 3 times for mine which clearly they had forgotten. It was nice. The main course came out and despite checking before I was still... More

Our first visit last night to the silver hind and it certainly won't be our last. We had a warm welcome from Jontei the manager and the staff were first class as well as being very cheerful even though the restaurant was very busy. The food was divine and only wish I was going back again tonight to enjoy all... More

The kitchens at this wonderful local hostelry have been closed for some months after a kitchen fire. They re-opened last night and I, along with a group of nine friends attended for dinner. The food was as excellent as it used to be, service was prompt and polite and the ambience was warm and cosy. We all had a memorable... More

Had a wonderful meal last night at the SIlver Hind which has now reopened after a kitchen fire which closed the restaurant for the last 2 months. Absolutely stunning food and some great new dishes on the menu, such as saddle of rabbit and the main dish I had, duck confit. A delicious smoked salmon terrine for starter and the... More

Nice to see the Silver Hind reopened after a hiatus due to their kitchen fire a while back. Delightful Sunday lunch. Staff attentive, food excellent. Of particular note was the Roast beef , cooked rare as requested - tender and tasty. On enquiry, we were told that it is locally sourced beef raised on the nearby Pennington salt marshes. Everything... More

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.
