Very, very nice.........

My husband and I went for lunch on the 27th June. A good level of choice on the menu. Nice service, we were left to talk and not harassed. The choice of drinks were good, the restaurant has an impressive choice of gin at the moment. My husband had a local draft beer and I had a Prosecco with... read more

We live in Rothley and tonight ate at the Hammer and Pincers to celebrate our daughter being home from uni and to welcome an American visitor. It's our favourite place locally as the food is nearly always fantastic. Tonight as we were eating early we had the early dinner menu. Highlights were the soup starter - the olives were a... More

Attended this for a Friday evening meal out and chose the grazing menu as the choice of one dish was too hard. The menu consisted of 8 courses over 2 hours and each course was very well balanced and complemented the previous course. The wine selection was very good, as was the selection of gins, which we didn't sample on... More

Stopped here for lunch and was not disappointed. Although a bit more than I would usually spend on a lunch at a pub the food was to die for. All 3 courses were outstanding. I say 3 we were actually given a complimentary apple sorbet as well which was so refreshing between courses. Cannot recommend this place enough.

We had seen this restaurant when passing on a number of occasions and eventually read the reviews which decided us to book. We were greeted with a smile on arrival and the staff were professional and friendly. The Sunday lunch was delicious and we really enjoyed the experience. We shall definitely return on our own and with our friends ....... More

Went for a surprise meal with friends. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Decor was very smart and service good. Prices extremely reasonable for the quality of the food. Highly recommended.

what a fantastic evening we had, we had decided to go a couple of weeks ago and we were attracted to the Grazing Menu but with me being a diabetic and my wife not particularly liking red meat we normally don't bother with these type of menus as you sometimes struggle to get chefs to change some of the dishes,...

We tried out the hammer and pincers for Sunday lunch a few weeks ago and were impressed enough to book for an evening meal. We could only get a early (6.15) or late (8.15) table so plumped for the early, and we're not disappointed - we were not given a set amount of time and could have stayed all evening.... More
