Well organized re Covid.
Lovely friendly place. Excellent food and good service. I have been a number of times now and always had a really fab time. Consistently great. So will happily recommend to folk.
Lovely food. Friendly helpful staff. Would definitely recommend!
Excellent food, best Sunday lunch in North East, the chocolate fondant was superb. Cannot fault anything.
Had breakfast. Not nearly as good as Sunday lunches are.
Excellent food and service made for a very enjoyable evening
The quality of the food was exceptional for the price , we love the use of local produce too.
Felt very secure with all the Covid precautions in place
Great restaurant, staff very attentive, great service and menu choices excellent. Staff very thorough, especially the lady. Loved the pan heggarty and hubby loved the chicken. Cant wait to return. Thankyou.
Great food, friendly staff and c19 protocols in place! Well worth a visit - we had brioche eggy bread with maple syrup and bacon and baked eggs with chirizo 😋
First visit to Hinnies, food was lovely and staff very welcoming. Will definitely book a return visit.
Lots of choice on the menu, friendly staff, delicious food. Overall a really lovely restaurant for a rare night out these days!! Definitely recommend.
Excellent lunch. Friendly service. Very good value for money. Would definitely return.
First time we had been to Hinnies for Sunday lunch and found the whole experience absolutely first class.
Service was excellent and the food beautiful, could not fault it and will definitely be back.
Great service, fantastic Sunday lunch, felt very COVID safe.
Lovely Sunday lunch, really nice even with face masks etc
Excellent friendly service once again cannot wait to go back
As always such great food and very good service for the twins and us
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.
Superb food with friendly helpful staff and great setting too. Can't fault it.
The menu was very varied with plenty of choices, the staff were very efficient and friendly and it was excellent value for money
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.
Always happy with the food and service. Very happy with the things they have got in place to keep customers and staff safe.
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 Sunday lunch and especially good vegetarian Sunday lunch
Really friendly staff, tasty food and good atmosphere
Felt safe in current Covid-19 context. Food and service excellent, lived up to its claim to provide good Geordie comfort food.
Excellent local dishes, sourced from local ingredients, well cooked and served by excellent helpful staff
Everything was very safe and controlled
Food excellent as usual especially children’s 3course lunch
Also fish of the day was hale which was so tasty
Cannot recommend highly enough
An excellent early evening Dinner in Covid compliant conditions.The staff were friendly and efficient.The highlight was the scotch egg and venison burger.
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.
Excellent meal as always thats why we like to return
when need a change from Dobson and Parnel
As always food delicious, service outstanding. Fish of the day is always worth asking about. Hake on Thursday was superb. Outstanding value.
Great food, good service and all Covid-related measures in place. Will be back ASAP.
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.
Delicious lunch served with all safety measures in place.
Window seat was nice.
Very Covid safe, comfortable. Food was excellent and staff friendly. Would highly recommend.
Lovely food in a great location
We chose the three course Sunday Lunch menu
I had ( not a lot of )the goats cheese with caramelised onion
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.
