Visited on Sat night and the food was superb as always. Would highly recommend Hennessy. Have eaten here quite a lot over the years and have tried various different meals on the menu and they are always delicious and top quality. I always find room for the Trio of Chocolate for dessert which is a must. Thank you Hennesy you never disappoint ;)

Went with 9 friends booked well in advance. Booked a round table so as we could all chat. They had overbooked. No wine that we wanted and it took about an hour to get our first course. Good food but appalling service. I am taking 30 people during Xmas and am seriously thinking about cancelling because I would be embarrassed to take them there. Get your act together!!!

Thank you for your review.
We are glad that you enjoyed your meal with us, our dishes are all locally sourced ingredients and cooked to order.
Concerning the staff, we have just employed a new restaurant supervisor and have completed a training session, on receiving your comments, on customer service, timing and bookings therefore you should see a huge difference on your next visit.
Thank you again for your feedback as it is much appreciated and hope to see you again soon.

I have never had top quality food here and the menu is fairly limited on the cook to order side. It is very popular but quite pricey- the cheapest cocktail is £5.50.
It just seems to be modelled on a footballers wives idea and does not have a lot of class.

Thank you for your review.
I am so sorry that our restaurant and food was not to your expectations. Obviously we do not like having negative reviews but I do prefer our customers to give us feedback whether it is positive or negative so we are able to enhance our service where necessary.

Not many establishments can serve very good and hot food for a large group. Hennessys can and did. We visited for a joint 21st/Engagement party and had a great time.Very friendly staff. Will be back.
