I have visited many times and always enjoyed the excellent food. The fish and chips are incredible and always worth going back to. I am very happy that the A La Carte menu is available again.

Well organised with all staff in visors or masks. Seated quickly, beautiful food, excellent service... Funny but not intrusive, and all in a relaxed restaurant on my doorstep. Who could ask for more

Great food and service as always. This was our first visit since the reopening after the COVID lockdown and our first time for Sunday lunch and it didn't disappoint. We went as a family for my mums birthday, three out of the five of us had never been before, all enjoyed their meals and the service. All cant wait to go back again, especially one self declared fussy eater said they cant wait to go back. It was quiet when we arrived as we had booked for the start of the lunch service, but as the placed filled up, within all the social distancing guidelines, the atmosphere we are used to built up to. Across our table we tried a wide assortment of dishes, from the baked Crottin (Goats cheese) with purple carrots, Pigs head croquette and cauliflower risotto for starters to Roast beef, fishcakes, sea bream and pork belly for mains and the must have Truffle and Parmesan chips on the side, all amazing.

Bit surprised to find that there were no gluten free options on the set menu. I had to pay £34 for 2 courses compared to £19 for 2 courses which my guests paid. Been to elite bistros all over and not experienced this before, normally very accommodating with the menu choices. Is this a new thing? Penalising someone who has to make food choices due to a medical condition. Food was delicious and service great just the cost for 2 course lunch!

Thought it was a bit pricy for the food served. Menu needs a bit more choice, didn't fancy the early bird menu.

Ate from the Sunday menu which was really delicious and good value for money. Loved the beetroot and walnut salad to start. Creme brûlée was also mega tasty. Staff were friendly and attentive. Really enjoyed our special day there. Will be back for more

We visited Pinion for my sons birthday and Sunday lunch - we had a divine meal, chicken liver pate, the stuffed pork -I was totally stuffed the pork was completely delicious & a welcome change from the beef I usually have. We were looked after by James at the upstairs table where we could watch the kitchen & Tracey downstairs. The thing that strikes me when we go to Pinion is how everyone says hello and makes you feel welcome: it’s a phenomenal neighbourhood bistro and I’d encourage everyone to visit

The whole experience was amazing. The food was well presented and cooked to perfection. The puddings were by far the best we’ve had. Definitely recommend the choux bun and the blackberry pavlova. Can’t wait to go again. A bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

Feels like it’s gone a bit down hill since we last went and the waitress we had didn’t leave us alone. She was lovely but we wanted to eat not chat! Probably won’t go back. Needs a make over as the walls are damp and the place is bare. Just feels unloved.

Fantastic food and excellent service. Only marked them down because of the weird experience at present with the Covid situation - that was my score based on my experience, but not in their hands.

This was our first visit after the lockdown and the food and the service were better than ever. All three choices offered for each course would have been equally enjoyable so it was difficult to choose. Presentation and content are equally superb.

Gorgeous looking restaurant and fab staff. I wasn't blown away by the choice of food on the lunch menu (the dinner menu looks far superior) but the produce used is clearly very fresh and a lot of thought has gone into the ingredients used and how they are presented. The batter on the fish and chips was too thick for my liking but the chips and the peas were delicious. Great selection of wines too and really nice ambience.
