“A lovely little restaurant in the heart of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

Hanson's is a small, welcoming restaurant that has something for everyone. There was a very good variety of dishes, all of which sounded very appetising. We settled on scallops for starter, then I had the sole for mains and my dining partner chose the slow-cooked pork belly. Both were exceptionally lovely. The wine list had a good variety at reasonable prices.

The decor of the restaurant is welcoming and the staff were friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend Hanson's as a restaurant suitable for couples or group dining.

“okay for lunch, surprised it has won awards”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We booked an evening meal here and was greatly looking foward to it ,seeing that it has won awards for its food!
Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed, the food was okay, nothing amazing.
We were seated in the 'downstairs' which we said we didn't mind. But was shocked at how dark and isolated it was down there. There was us and another couple at first, the only thing you could hear was the other persons conversations and it felt extremely awkward down there when there were silences, it did improve when the room filled, but perhaps a little background music down there wouldn't have gone amiss. The stairs are quite risky getting down there in heels too! If you were to go i would recommend sitting on the ground floor.
Personally i don't think it was worth the price, and wouldn't recommend going there, perhaps for a satisfactory lunch? but not evening meal as a treat.

“Mouth Watering Steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

We ended up at this resturant by accident...the place we wanted to was closed!! It was a rainy monday night so no need to book a table. My other half REALLY wanted a quality steak for her birthday and although i have heard raving reviews about Hansons its always been about the fish.....

I had the three courses for £19.99 and i have to be honest - i was disappointed with the main course. I had the goats chese Foccica to start.....nice but nothing to write home about. The Duck for main meal was really oily and didnt taste of much. veg were average. the sticky toffee pudding was AMAZING!!! its my own fault....i should have ordered the fish...it looked and smelt amazing!!

My partner cannot wait to go back...she ordered the Steak and seriously cannot stop talking about it!! it was mouth watering and cooked to perfection.

The waiter was friendly and helpful.

Would def reccommend!!! :) Really enjoyed ourselves!!
