Our first visit to Hinnies for a few months.....loved the new menu and the food was stunning! Attentive staff but not over bearing. Generous portions so be careful what you order! I chose the lamb dish which had four delicious types of lamb. The lamb hotspot was a triumph. How did the chef manage to encapsulate all the elements of a hotpot into a breaded oblong? Amazing.

Main course was ok, we both had Sunday lunch. At the point of ordering we asked for a side dish of cauliflower cheese, the waiter asked if we’re were sure we wanted to order it as the Sunday dinner already came with cauliflower cheese. However it didn’t, which was a bit of a shame as we really wouldn’t have minded paying for the side dish.

We then ordered the singing hinnies, they were surprisingly poor considering the restaurant is named after them. The hinnies themselves were really tiny and burnt. The waiters were very nice about it and took them off the bill.

All in all it felt like a let down as the restaurant its self is very nice and the staff very nice, just a shame about the food

Most of our party were happy overall. Personally portion was just too large! Smoked salmon in copious amounts but cut thickly which is not to my taste. Belts breakfast was also huge, 4 pieces of toast!! Disappointed with quality of the bacon and no choice given as to the way eggs were cooked . Otherwise ok.

Four adults went for a celebration meal to Hinnies restaurant on a Wednesday evening for the early evening dinner rate.
As it wasn’t particularly busy the service was very good in terms of taking orders for drinks and then food.
The starters and the main course arrived in acceptable wait times, however, we did have to wait a while for the desserts but the waiter did come over and apologise and say they wouldn’t be long.
My only gripe is that I would hate to be paying full price for any of the courses. To be paying £19.00 for three courses what we received in size of portion was acceptable but would have been terrible if we had been paying full price.

Slightly disappointed at what appeared to be a smaller menu choice. However, still enjoy this restaurant
and its food so that will not put me off.

A nice Sunday lunch. Trout en croute was delicious as were the singin’ hinnies. Limited choice for Sunday lunch was disappointing (no a la carte). My dining companions roasts were nice but ‘nothing special’ let down I think by the overly chunky cabbage. Nice all in all.

First time for sunday lunch and it was lush. We will be definately be back. The food was delicious and the staff and ambience Brill. Only thing i would add was maybe a little sauce or even a little lemon juice to the crayfish cocktail

We are regulars at Hinnies, but unfortunately our last couple of visits have been very poor. Service from the waitress at our last visit was appalling. She got our food order wrong (fine mistakes happen) but we didnt even get an apology, we were just told, yours will be few minutes and we waiting 20+. There were a few other moments of rudeness/poor service during our meal which make us question whether we will return.

Poor service. Order was taken incorrectly so had to make do with wrong item or wait another 15 mins and then one meal which was supposed to be a curry was very bland. Had good meals before so not sure if it was due to being very busy

This is the second time we've eaten at Hinnies. It's one of many great restaurants in Whitley Bay, and one of the best for us. We booked online on the spur of the moment, which was very straightforward. The staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful. There was a good choice of wine and other drinks. The tables are well spaced and the dining area is light, spacious and interesting.

Went to hinnies with two friends. They are vegetarian and vegan and I am the meat eater! I ordered the steak with pepper sauce, which was beautiful. My friends thoroughly enjoyed their options.
Lovely food, decor and service. The only downside was only one vegan dessert available this time.
I would recommend and will definitely be returning! 😊

Great food served with helpful explanation and a great deal of cheerfulness
However I’m confused ..... on line booking asked if it was a special occasion and I cited it was a birthday but no mention was made of it on the day. Should it have been ?

Hinnies is an excellent restaurant for casual dining. It is well placed on the seafront at Whitley Bay.The service is friendly and efficient even though the restaurant is busy. The food is Modern British with a nod to some of the traditional dishes of the North East. I had gurnard on a seafood risotto. The fish was expertly cooked and super fresh and the risotto was delicious.

Great food as usual, service a little slow tonight, only 2 serving and restaurant busy. Fish pie very tasty but took awhile to eat as it was so hot! My partner had finished his meal before I was half way through mine. Unfortunately didn’t get to sample dessert on this occasion as we were going on to the cinema and our first choice wasn’t able to be served. We will return.
