Myself and my partner dined here this week and although the food was adequate the service needs a little attention. The front of house staff seemed to be very young and perhaps could do with some extra training. As soon as we entered the establishment we were pounced upon by a young lady offering to take us to our table-... More

Sometimes the best things happen by chance. I found The Hammer & Pincers when looking for a restaurant for Sunday lunch a little closer to where we were staying. It needed to be good as this was part of my wife's birthday weekend and some of the family were invited. Trip Advisor seemed to rate it, but there's always that... More

We hadn't eaten here for a little while but we decided to have a bit of a treat after some extremely busy weeks at work - we had a 3 course dinner from the a la carte menu. My husband had the spicy Thai pumpkin soup and I had the chicken liver parfait - both starters were great! I really... More

This was my third visit here, and our dinner was the best yet. My wife and I went for the very reasonable set meal (3 courses for £23.50). Our starters (wood pigeon) and mains (pheasant for me, hake for my wife) were absolutely delicious and the pudding was very good too. Somehow, even my carrots (I don't really like carrots)... More

We had a non meat eater and they substituted fish for meat for her without any issue. Place was full and buzzing on a Wednesday evening - on... More

Went with my husband to the Hammer and Pincers. Met with warm, friendly staff who were a please to be served by. Menu was well balanced, with a range of dishes including an early bird menu which represents amazing value. Went with the sirloin steak which has to be one of the best ever...rich and succulent and very well cooked.... More
