This was our first visit to this restaurant. If I had to sum the visit up in one word it would be "ok" which is not really good enough for a restaurant of this standard. My main criticism of the food would have been the cooking of my steak. I asked for it medium/well. My fellow diner described it as... More

Myself, my wife and friends visited this pub last year, and we had a great night. The service was second to none, and the food was reasonably priced and of a high standard.

This is my local and does some realy nice food, the Sunday dinner being the best of their meals. I strongly recomend to book on a Sunday as it is very popular.

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
