Service needs to improve . We went later on afternoon around 4:30pm, however there was hardly anything available so meats for roasts were down to just one available and service was poor . Waitress looked like she didn’t want to be there and was quite abrupt. Other than that , food was good but dessert was also not available otherwise you would have had money for 3 more deserts from us aswell !

Menu for vegetarians is very limited, but the meals we have were nice and tasty. The fish was lacking in the batter department.

Chose the lunch menu 2 courses for £9.99. Very good value. We did not at any time feel that people were to close to us, so felt safe. Nice experience and will definately go again.

The waitress was fine and helpful
The table itself was near the door way leading to the toilet people were having to pass us constantly
We ordered steak which was very tough we didn’t complain but think that we should have done

Booked for Sunday 1PM. When we arrived they couldn't find the booking then realised
they had put it down for Monday. received no apology.
Couldn't find us a table except in Bar area, which was very noisy. Service poor and food quality adequate.
Never ever go again

First Sunday lunch my friend and I had been out for since March. Staff were amazing we ordered pie which had obviously been microwaved making it indigestible.
I know staff did their very best and we did not complain, but next time hopefully Sunday roast will be back on the menu.
We realise they were all trying their best under very strange circumstances due to Covid 19.

Staff were courteous and helpful but wait for food to be served longer than can be reasonably expected. Space in our booth for 6 people was tight to say the least. Red the facility to choose a table ie round or similar to facilitate access and egress.

Visited early evening for dinner the bar area was busy, the restaurant was empty on arrival but soon got very busy, so able to sit anywhere. Service was very good as only one member of staff serving who was very good. The menu has a good selection of food to choose from. Drinks again good selection of beers and wines.
On the whole an enjoyable evening will definitely go again.

We arrived quite early at 12.30 on a Sunday and although our reservation wasnt showing on the system, a table was found for us with no issues. The food was delicious and will definitely be returning at some point in the not too distant future.

Fab meal, great staff. Girls in the restaurant so pleasant and nothing is too much.
Great atmosphere as there was a football match on next door. Food arrived, fresh hot and plenty of it.
Eaten here several times, cannot day anything negative!

Really enjoyed the lunch value for money was exceptional. Dad and l had the over 60s menu and was very impressed, couldnt fault the cooking at all. The staff both behind the bar and at table were really lovely and welcoming. I wish there was a bit more separation between the bar and dining room. I am visiting again.

Enjoyed our visit to The Hinksford. Recently refurbished, this is a typical pub restaurant. The meal is served to your table by friendly staff. Good quality food is served and the three course Sunday lunch is available with one or two course options. Obviously with the improved decor and facilities an increase in price from the old days was expected. However having chosen the two course option we regard this as good value for money.

Reserved a table with the Hinksford Arms through Open Table. Arrived at the venue to find the staff had no record of the booking due to the Manager being away and he was the only person able to access the Open Table bookings. Very poor. No other tables available so left the restaurant without eating there. Will not return.

Hi,

I would recommend as the food was lovely however the service was so slow. And we weren’t the only table complaining. Our starters took over an hour to arrive at our table. Then when our main course came there was an issue where of the diners order wasn’t cooked and so that meal came out once we had eaten.

The food and setting was lovely and waitress very polite however the timings of the food really needs to be improved.

Thanks
