Went for the Tuesday night curry, it was lovely. Choice of 4 curries , I picked beef madras and vegetable balti. Both were really nice. Service was great and all tables distanced so felt safe. Really worth a try.

Booked a table at The Hamers Summerseat with 10 friends, paid the deposit Christmas Eve for Boxing Day, one hour before we should have sat down for the meal we received a phone call to say the set menu had been cancelled and we can...only choose from the normal menu which was more expensive. Due to everyone already on there way we all still went. We choose from the set menu but everything wasn’t available and when we did receive our meals they were very poor. Not one for moaning but we all felt we were let down at the last minute, not good at all The Hamers, Summerseat!!! Would have rated zero if it was possible, sorry!!!More

Well priced fresh and extremely good. Quirky place with a great atmosphere and music. Lucky it's near to try everything on the menu. Well done chef Noel 😁

We have always been made to feel welcome by all at the hamers we were even offered free herbs from the garden , as for the dog table we think that's great as we also have dogs it's a very dog friendly clean and welcoming...atmosphere would most definitely recommend to family and friends.More

I wish I could rate a zero! On every visit we have had to The Hamers we have been met with hostility from the landlord. He is very rude and confrontational and even told us to ‘go home’ when we queried that an item wasn’t...on the menu like it had been two days previously. We have actually been asked to move, so the landlords dog can sit on the bench! The pub itself is dark, dingy and has never had any atmosphere - it never appears to be clean - the tables are often left sticky. With several good quality pubs in the vicinity, it’s unbelievable that they would act this way - save your time and your money and go elsewhere; we surely will never be returning.More

This pub claims on its signboard to do food all day. It does not. We are sitting inside it now at 13:40 on a Saturday and that’s crisps or nuts - that’s it. Admittedly they have nice Theakston’s Best Bitter but that’s no consolation for...my 83-year-old mum who struggled up from the railway station up the steep hill for something to eat. Nice view from up here, the weather’s great but no food spoiled it entirely.More

Where do I start? The Hamers was very dull, dank and most certainly didn't appear warm and welcoming. The guy behind the bar kept looking across at us strangely...didn't even say hello...didn't even a smile. The whole place felt dirty and it smelled. Touching the...door handles was a nightmare as they were horrible and sticky and on the way to the toilet I was met with a cloud of cigarette smoke from the open door where all the smokers congregated. We ordered our food and it took an hour to arrive. When it finally arrived it wasn't even hot...lukewarm at best and was brought to our table by a female that didn't even smile or speak to us...I had the chicken roast dinner but I left most of it. The chicken was so tough, the roast potatoes were from frozen and the Yorkshire pudding was from frozen. My husband had the fish and chips which was awfully salty as the chips had been covered in some kind of chip seasoning...and they definitely need to change the oil. Worst country pub I have ever visited!More

We decided to try the Hamers having read reviews and learning of the management change recently. There are 2 menus, one with traditional dishes such as Fish & Chips etc, the other Spanish Tapas. We decided to get a few dishes from the tapas menu....What a great choice, we loved all of the dishes. As it was a Saturday evening there was some live entertainment on which provided a fun atmosphere. In all we had a most enjoyable evening and will definitely be going back.More

Visited for the first time with friends on Tuesday night, had high expectations based on friends recommendations but was blown away built the quality and the pricing of the food. The head chef went out of his was to accommodate the vegetarian in the group,...everyone commented on how great the pub was. Looking forward to coming back.More

Eaten here several times now and basically worked our way thru the menu—both the tapas and tried loads of the changing main meals. Not ordered anything that we wouldn’t order again. Fresh, imaganitive and brilliantly cooked. Well done Noel. We will be back.
