It was great to be back at Hinnies after a long break. Menu remains exciting and accessible - our venison suet roll and hake were both outstanding. Staff were warm, welcoming, attentive and professional. We felt safe and relaxed and enjoyed a last evening out before lockdown. Will be back sooner!

Second visit to Hinnies. First was just so impressive, good menu beautifully cooked food with imaginative ingredients and subtle tastes. Excellent friendly service.

Second visit equally good. This is a special place, you won't be disappointed and the value for money of the set menu, well, just amazing

Very relaxing experience. All 3 of us thought our Sunday lunch was superb, and great value. Husband said it was the best roast beef he’s ever had. Staff were all very friendly. Have already highly recommended it to friends and family.

This was the second occasion on which I have dined at Hinnies, and my initial positive impression was confirmed by the excellence of the food, the diligent but not obtrusive staff, and the overall quality of the service provided. I have recommended the restaurant to friends and family, and I am sure that I shall visit the restaurant again.

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.
