Have had great and not-so-great-but-still-good-experiences at the Hammer & Pincers. When the owners are in-house, the food is great and the service is good; when they aren't - the food can be less than its usual standard and the service slips for sure. It's a simply decorated restaurant - but as it can be quite quiet it can lack atmosphere.... More

We had a lovely Sunday lunch here today. Booking was simple using their online system. We were early but our table was ready. I had previously informed them of our food allergies and they were aware and ready to offer us some alternatives and the waitress knew what was in each dish. The food was presented beautifully and tasted delicious.... More

We called in on the spur of the moment for a late Sunday lunch as it was our wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful sunny Summer day and I had a perfect G&T in the garden. The food was fantastic - perfectly cooked to order - and we weren't rushed. The restaurant has just been refurbished and looked lovely -... More

Came across the Hammer & Pincers on an unscheduled detour. Getting a bit late but they were still serving. Pub full but there was space on the terrace. Very comfortable, beautifully maintained garden and lovely warm weather. Great menu catering especially for gluten free, even the bread for dipping which is rare. Menu a bit pricey but oh my word...

The M1 was blocked and the roads were completely deadlocked. I cut across country to get home and was persuaded to stop here for a break to allow the traffic to subside. I have always avoided the place as I heard that the prices were on the expensive side. The early bird menu was really good value for money with... More

Having passed the Hammer and Pincers many times recently on my way to work I decided that my partner and I would make the trip from Lincoln on a Saturday evening to check out the food. We were certainly glad that we took the trouble. Everything about the experience was excellent. Menu, the quality of the foodand presentation, service. All... More

Both food & service were excellent, couldn't fault it at all. Quite pricey but then, as they say, you get what you pay for. Will return without doubt.

Lovely food, very cramped for families! We visited last Sunday with two children and found the seating very difficult
