We had a lovely experience at Hinnies Friday 16th October. I had the seafood soup with toasted rarebit which was very flavoursome but could have been a little hotter. However the sticky toffee pudding was to die for!
My husband had the pork terrine then the chicken dish. Both he said were lovely. The wine was perhaps a bit expensive at £21 a bottle compared with other restaurants in the area but was very enjoyable.

Health and Safety measures in place.
Starters superb. Just LOVE the smoked salmon on buckwheat blini.Lemon creme fraiche the perfect accompaniment. I opted for partridge simply because I've never eaten it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal,bread pudding,puy lentils etc.,although the texture of the breast was unusual and won't be for some.
I opted for coffee but my husband 's choc fondant was perfect in its "ooze".
So nice to experience creative cooking using great ingredients.

We have been to Hinnies on many occasions and really loved the food. Our lunch on this occasion was distinctly underwhelming. The salmon starter on a pancake was dry and uninspiring and my husbands steak had to be recooked. A bit disappointing all round

Lovely, clean, stylist restaurant. Staff are friendly and being cautious during this difficult time so we felt safe going in knowing they were doing everything they can. And the food is phenomenal and the portion size is huge so it's worth every penny.

Had a lovely first meal here- had the two course Sunday lunch, and the portion size was great. The only negative really was the speed of service- between courses was a bit slow but sometimes that happens. Will have to go back and try something new!

Great choice - we could have easily picked another 3 or more items from each course. Service was excellent from going through the door to leaving. In these Covid times, we felt very safe .
Couldnt have been happier, We will certainly be back.

A local favourite, great for special occasions and date nights. The food is plentiful, superbly cooked, elegantly presented, and served at precisely the right pace - we ere neither rushed nor kept waiting. Service was friendly and attentive throughout. The Early Bird is a fantastic bargain. Please do all you can to support one of the treasures of Whitley Bay.

My husband had the scotch egg very tasty
We both had the bake fish of the day it was very meaty and cooked to perfection
I had the ginger sundae and hubby had the sticky toffee pudding and a coffee
The service was professional and very pleasant.
