Great; definitely will come back.

Food service was very slow which was acknowledged by staff but our friend had to leave before we finished due to the slow service.

Excellent food and service. Handled allergy requirements very well by adapting dishes on the menu and coming up with a bespoke dessert! Would definitely go back and would be there more often if only we lived closer.

Enjoyed our meal. The salmon to start with was tasty. The venison wellington was cooked to perfection.
Looking forward to another visit soon.

We had an evening meal at Hinnies.
Good atmosphere. Warm friendly restaurant.
The starter of mushrooms on toasted garlic sourdough, poached egg and chives was delicious.
The Vension Wellington was also delicious. Tender pinkish meat and very tasty dish.
The roast pheasant breast, spiced lentils and tenderstem was also very good. Although the pheasant taste was lost in the dish with the strong taste of the spiced lentils.
Would definitely eat here again and recommend.

This restaurant is always welcoming and the staff are very engaging and helpful. We brought our 6 month old granddaughter along with us. She has just started eating solid foods and has a severe dairy intolerance. The restaurant were well prepared for dealing with this type of situation which was very reassuring. Another very nice meal and a good time was had by all.

We visited Hinnies last Wednesday for lunch on an extremely cold day , the restaurant was warm and welcoming.
The staff were very attentive and professional , quickly showed us to our table .
The food we ordered was excellent , we both ordered the crab starter , we were not disappointed
In addition the main course was well presented as well as being nice and hot on arrival at our table

The food we very nice and we all enjoyed it. However the staff were not familiar with the dishes and could not answer any questions about them. Ditto with the wine list - zero knowledge. They came across as very inexperienced and disorganised - three different people tried to take the drinks order and then they got it wrong. They really let down what could be a really nice restaurant.

Lovely food and atmosphere but poor service especially since we had a little one with us. Our son received his dinner and had finished it before we even got our starters. Would have been fine if we weren’t dining with a little one.

Hinnies is by far the best restaurant I have been to for Sunday dinner in a long time!! The food is absolutely superb, the portions are generous, the staff are friendly and attentive, and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere.
The 2/3 course option is a great price.
I think my only comment would be that the wine prices are quite high, particularly when buying by the glass.
Other than that, I really can’t fault them, and we will definitely be back on a regular basis.

Service was a little slow, although as it was New Year’s Eve lunchtime it was extremely full it was understandable

We were a table of 8, took around 10 minutes for all the meals to reach the table, by which point the 1st 2 served had almost finished. Also ordered 2 side dishes which arrived later still. we tried a range of dishes, most were OK, but nothing special given the price. Although the staff apologised multiple times for the delay, there was no gesture in removing anything from the almost £140 bill. We skipped dessert & had gelato in a nearby ice cream parlour. Overall, really disappointing.

This was my second visit. The first was a 5 out of 5. I had the same brunch as my first visit but this time the muffin was soggy as the spinach hadn't been drained property and the mushrooms were, hmmm, unpleasant. We were the only customers but had to wait 25 minutes for our food. We mentioned the soggy muffin when we paid the bill but the waitress didn't seem interested.

Overall excellent food and service was great, lovely Waitress. Our table was near the kitchen and opposite the toilets and having a chair on the end of the table was a bit in the way of foot-traffic, and that constant kitchen noise. Will request a table away from that area should we return (live nr London so it won’t be that soon!), however we have recommended to other family members.

Lovely Christmas dinner with our work colleagues. Staff were very attentative but not over powering which was good. Food was lovely and hot and not too long to wait in between courses. Portion sizes were huge. Overall a very good experience, would recommend and would visit again.

Regular customer but hadn’t been for a while. Usual genuinely friendly greeting from the staff.
Busy but service wasn’t effected, prompt & attentive without being intrusive.
Food up to it’s usual high standard.

Very good food, service, and very comfortable with a lovely decor.
The only downside was I was with two elderly people who are hard of hearing, the noise level was very high due to the tables being close together and not helped by the speaker above our heads.
However, we did enjoy the experience and I will come again when I’m next in the North East.

This restaurant is an absolute gem!! We brought our two mums and our little boy for Sunday dinner to celebrate a birthday. The staff are really welcoming and attentive. They were great with our son. The food was superb, from our son’s sausages and mash, to the roast beef, roast pork and lamb rump dishes, it was all perfectly cooked and delicious, with generous portions. When it came to dessert, I ordered the crumble without realising it had nuts in it, and I have an allergy. As soon as I mentioned it the waitress whisked it away and offered me an alternative.
All in all we had a great experience and we will definitely be back. I would highly recommend Hinnies to anyone. My only suggestion for an improvement would be to clearly mark dishes that contain nuts on the menu.
