Delightful room - great food - charming staff - even after such a tough year they made our meal a real treat !!!
Meal was disappointing tbh, my husband ordered venison loin and 2 of the smallest pieces arrived on his plate, like a small child’s portion. My xmas dinner was mediocre, pigs in blankets, cold. Deserts disappointing too. Didn’t complain at the time because it’s hard for all hospitality right now but not sure we’ll rush back 🤨
Another excellent meal, been coming here for years no drop in standards good COVID care as one would expect.
This is a place to relax and have a quality meal not suited for those who want large portions of average fare, but if you like good cuisine well presented this is excellent
Friends restaurant has always been a favourite with our family.The food never disappoints it’s a real treat to go there so glad we managed to get in before lockdown,so will now have to settle for the takeaway menu.If you’ve never been you really need to try you won’t be disappointed.
The food at Friends is very good even though the portion size for the starters was a bit small. Because of Covid they were not taking our coats but I felt that they could have done more to show us where to put them when welcoming us. The ambience is beautiful as it is a mediaeval building with beams and it was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We enjoyed the venison casserole and cod with artichoke orzo, and especially the roasted artichokes. Desserts were also very well put-together and delicious .
Excellent Sunday lunch at a good price. Very good service and an enjoyable atmosphere
Lovely food and staff.
The menu is always great seasonal plates
Lovely service from the staff. The food was delicious and I would anyone to try their brunch.
Really good food, good wine list and good staff..what more do you need
Will become a regular. Service was fantastic, food was amazing and selection of drinks was, the good stuff.
Superb pre lockdown brunch. Piping hot and very tasty food. Friendly service. Very much our ‘go to’ place!!
A very enjoyable breakfast and look forward to a return visit
I wanted to find somewhere nice to have a healthy breakfast. The options on the menu were good. I ordered a Benedict royale and my companion ordered an eggs benedict. The service was good to begin with. The food and drinks arrived in good time. Unfortunately when we asked for a further drink we had to wait for a time.
I would visit again as this is a lovely restaurant and has great food.
Wonderful flavours, great service. Excellent meal in every way.
Superb Sunday lunch. Excellent ambience. Staff really friendly and helpful. All very COVID safe.
Food amazing - looks too good to eat . Lovely surprise to also get nibbles between courses ! Staff great. Thoroughly recommended
The service is excellent the only things we had issues with were
The food portions are very small I ordered the monkfish is is delicious and would recommend but I only had two small pieces of monkfish
My husband ordered the steak and received 6 chips
The other issue was both meals were not hot more tepid I think they waited for my chips that I ordered as a side as they were hot
No we did not complain as mentioned the food we did receive was excellent all three courses were really tasty as were the little tasters we received
The other issue was we ordered Irish coffees and only received less than half a glass. That is taking small portions to another level !
Would recommend but would say please take note of portion size
Great brunch - lovely food and excellent service. Will definitely return!
Food and service outstanding - veal was to die for. Excellent service from the young waitresses and will definitely be visiting again.
This family run business is a true gem within the Pinner and surrounding areas. We don't go often, however, whenever we do, the guys at the restaurant NEVER disappoint.
Had a fantastic meal on Sunday afternoon. Such friendly staff, delicious food and because there was six of us, we had a semi private room.
Overall a great experience.
Fab food fab staff fab fab
Great Brunch! Good quality food served with a smile. The porridge is AMAZING and a must try. My only one suggestion would be to introduce a small bread basket (croissants etc) for those that may not want something substantial. But overall great food and service will be back :-)
Friends is a good neighbourhood restaurant. The food is well thought through .
I particularly enjoyed the pigeon , properly cooked medium rare , and it’s accompanying vegetables. My wife had venison loin , also well presented.
The cheese course was also very good as was my starter of cured salmon . My wife’s starter ,a beetroot based salad ,was also tasty .
We came here for our anniversary lunch. The staff are lovely and made some great recommendations - in particular the new blackberry and brioche dessert, which was amazing! Food was excellent and we felt relaxed and unhurried. We'll definitely come back for dinner or brunch at some point.
Excellent food, service and ambience. A little pricey but quality food.
Very lovely food but extremely small portions for you pay! Enjoyed the meal but wouldn’t go again.
Great meal. Felt very safe good food good service. Will eat within the next 6 weeks again.
Hubbies birthday and wanted to start the day off a little bit special . Because of Covid restrictions could only do things with the two of us . A lovely breakfast , with a linen table cloth and nice cutlery etc , how nice is that . And not overly expensive too !
We booked this for a special occasion and let the restaurant know in advance about a dessert preference which they accommodated. The food was outstanding. A very fast and efficient service. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. I was concerned about the social distancing in the restaurant as it is quite small but it was all in line with advice and we felt safe. I have no hesitation in recommending Friends. My young son promised the staff a 5 star rating so here it is. We will definitely be booking again.
Lovely food a bit pricey but it is ok on special occasion. We definitely will be back.
Really lovely restaurant. Staff were wonderful. Good very good. Overall great experience. Would highly recommend.
We went to friends restaurant for brunch, it was really delicious and the service was excellent. We definitely recommend the restaurant.
Friendly service good food and seemed good value for the price.
Perfect place for relaxing brunch. Beautifully cooked food and excellent value. Will definitely be returning.
I'd visited the week before to sample new breakfast menu- food was tasty and fair portion, however kitchen forgot to add all the items on my plate - no mushrooms. Also the latte was a mess - spilt onto the saucer and over the sugar cubes, but I didn't complain as the waitress seemed new and still learning the ropes.
Took hubby to breakfast this week - food was not great, portions were reduced (got half the sourdough, half a tomato instead of roasted juicy cherry tomatoes on vine like the previous week. Also baked beans were cold.
Staff were friendly.
Wonderful meal at this lovely restaurant. The new chef is doing so well- much more modern and exciting menu. Lovely evening with friends. E will be back soon
Lovely meal. Lights over the tables are too bright, quite clinical. Think a wine waiter is required, lovely waiting staff aren’t up to a wine waiter standard. More show than substance not keen on goats cheese ice cream think my friend burnt her tongue on the liquid nitrogen. But that all aside a lovely evening.
The new look Friends is a welcome addition to Pinner’s very depleted range of eateries. It’s smart and upmarket with a friendly welcome and good service. Brunch was very good. The evening menu looks adventurous and interesting but certainly on
the expensive side so hopefully it is special enough to deserve the price.
Customers will keep coming if the food is delicious and generous and they are warmly welcomed so let’s hope it stays that way.
Lovely local restaurant. Visited Saturday evening, good spaces between tables. Great service and tasty food. Menu could have more choice. Smallish portions, but overall just about right, maybe more vegetables.
