The second year running we’ve had our wedding anniversary dinner here. Despite the Coronavirus restrictions the staff made the experience just as good as last year. Add the fact that the food was excellent you can imagine we highly recommended The Hengist.
Excellent last meal before lockdown. Great food and friendly staff.
The service was exceptional given the Covid restrictions we were under. (the day before lockdown 2)
It felt "normal", our server was very warm, friendly and didn't make us feel like we were diseased! It is a difficult time in hospitality, and you guys nailed it.
Yet again, a fantastic experience. The lobster Thermidor was delicious and my only criticism is that it was smaller than I expected.
Birthday meal, great food, lovely evening, would definitely recommend
Pre-lock down fine dining. Beautiful food and lovely people. The duck for main course was delicious.
I loved the cod plate. The dessert was also lovely: hot chocolate cake with pistachio icecream.
Food was delicious, though on the expensive side for a pub. We were sat upstairs. Have never been up there before. It doesn’t have the same feel or atmosphere as downstairs - a lot blander, unfortunately.
The food at the Hengist is always excellent, I have never had a bad meal there!
The food is absolutely amazing. The staff are very helpful
We've been to Hengists several times over the years. The experience has been a bit up and down, but judging from our last visit, things seem to be very much on the up. The service was good, food very tasty and good value all round. Well worth a try.
Started with covid bar code not working due to insufficient light. Table was good with social distancing in place. The starters and mains were very good, although service a little sloppy -the wine menu was withdrawn before we even looked at it.
Then we waited ages for the dessert menu. I wish I could say that the sweets lived up to the promise but they were very average (tasted like they had been in the freezer for a while) and served with a soup spoon.
The place just needs some attention to detail and staff training.
This was our fourth or fifth visit to the Hengist, so we were disappointed and it just felt over priced.
It was an anniversary meal and the young couple next to us were very loud. I appreciate that it is difficult for the staff to control but it did spoil the ambience. We will think twice before returning.
Service was good but noise was too loud due to one table unfortunately who wee rather loud speaking to each other. Food a little slow but delicious. Comps to the chef✅
Food great service brilliant cocktails amazing
Lovely food, very friendly and helpful staff, felt very safe
Another fantastic meal at Hengist. Impeccable service from Kieran.
Waiter dropped drinks over 2 of our party. No significant apology, no management came over and no deduction for the mess.
The steak was amazing, melted in Your mouth, fantastic!
Cosy place. Steak night was good, chips over cooked but otherwise meal and service good. Would eat here again
Best scallops ever!
Only downside was the small wine list.
Exciting tastes, beautifully presented in a cosy space. We each chose a different starter and main, and all four of us were delighted with our dishes. Well done, The Hengist, we will be back!
Food was fine but not memorable and so a little bit expensive.
Lovely atmosphere and our waiter was outstanding
Food was disappointing to be honest steak was over cooked and scallops a little watery
The cocktails were a bit disappointing too we ordered 3 expresso martinis and two of the party could not drink them
We have eaten at the hengist before and it has always been good food that’s why it was so disappointing to get this based on the amount that you are charged 😞
Amazing meal and waitress was very knowledgeable and really helpful.
Food cooked to our preference, hot and of good quality. Service was quite rushed, still eating starters when main course arrived. Plates taken whilst still eating. Had to ask the service staff to slow down and stop rushing us-after this it was much more relaxed. They were too eager to please!
Overall, for our first experience eating here, it was good food, staff were friendly and attentive and the restaurant clean and fresh.
I would recommend and will be returning 9/10
Wonderful staff, well presented and tasty food. Really enjoyed our evening.
As always amazing food, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. Never fails to impress us.
Two medium cooked fillets steaks were a little overcooked and the starters a little slow considering there were only two tables used (6pm) when we came in, but overall, food was tasty And a pleasant experience
The food was lovely. The staff were friendly and efficient. We had a small quibble about the quality of the ice cream which they relate to the chef and dealt with in professional, constructive manner.
Delicious meal as always ! Coming back next Sunday for sure !
Amazing food and really friendly staff. Cosy atmosphere. Could have been slightly faster offering more drinks. Would recommend to anyone. Best roast dinner I’ve had in such a long time.
Love Hengist. Special birthday plate too. Thank you.
Great atmosphere, great service, and really good food. Worth the expense
A very average meal
Delicious food cooked to perfection. Polite friendly staff very attentive. Lovely restaurant clean and COVID standards were high and tables set at appropriate distances. Would definitely go again.
Well I like 1960s music but not every track that needs to be varied food was fabulous mind you the Châteaubriand was slightly cold could’ve been hotter could’ve been warmer however we will be returning
Excellent restaurant, delicious and tasty dinner ;)
Very pleasant meal and well thought out with COVID restrictions etc. Only down side the table near us was quite loud so at times was difficult to hear ourselves but they wasn't the restaurants fault.
Great environment and great food
We were put in small room upstairs with very little atmosphere, nothing like the lovely restaurant downstairs. Service wasn’t great and food returned as not hot enough.
