A simply magical Sunday lunch - the most delicious roast beef I've ever tasted. Every detail of the meal is meticulously thought through and cooked to perfection. The surprise extra treat at the end of the meal for my birthday topped off what was already one of the best meals I've ever eaten.

We had a wonderful dinner at Hind's Head. It was the last evening of our two-week trip, and it was the perfect ending. We relaxed with drinks in the upstairs bar before returning to the main floor dining room. The ambiance was relaxing, the service was attentive, and both the four and six-course dinners offered innovative and distinctive meals.

If you've been to the Hinds Head before they changed things up again - just make sure you know what you're signing up to so your expectations will be met. It's not longer a pub when you can grab a pint and a scotch egg at the bar, but it's all restaurant now and feels much more of what you would expect from the Michelin experience. Still friendly and accessible, we couldn't fault the service, the food was exceptional and although now a set menu of either four or six courses, enough flexibility if wanted to switch out one or two of them. And really well sized courses too making the four course meal we had pretty good value for money. The bar went out of their way to find us something similar to 'Neige' which we'd discovered originally at the Hinds Head four years prior. Everything was really very wonderful and the tiny minor thing I would say is that when we took our coffee upstairs in the newly refurbished lounge it was very breezy and cold up there. We had a lovely evening and my Mum whose birthday it was, was made to feel ever so special with a cake, candle and birthday card. Thank you team.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first experience at the Hinds Head for dinner on Friday evening. The premises are very traditional and cosy - we loved the pew style seating, wood-panelled walls and dim lighting. The building is full of history and the decor was sympathetic to that. The atmosphere was relaxed and service impeccable. I had the 4-course set menu while my husband had the 6-course set menu. I liked how the courses were served in such a way that I did not feel like I was waiting too long for my next course, in spite of my husband having two more courses than me. The set menus were pretty reasonably priced considering it is a 1-star restaurant. The standard of the food was excellent - traditional British ingredients cooked to a very high standard. Deliciously tasty. As a gluten-free diner I could eat most of what was offered on the 4-course set menu. I didn't feel like I was missing out too much but that would not have been the case had I opted for the 6-course set menu. A slight bug bear of mine is that instead of offering a gluten-free alternative, it is often the case that the gluten-free elements are simply removed from the dish, leaving you with a gluten-free, but incomplete meal. There was a little of this at the Hinds Head but also attempts to offer gluten-free alternatives. Quality gluten-free bread was available in abundance. The only criticism we have is with regard to the peach Melba. Although tasty enough, it was decidedly underwhelming compared with the rest of the set menus. I understand gluten-free desserts aren't easy but the same peach Melba was also on the 6-course set menu as a pre-dessert and my husband's seemed identical to mine. For a 1 star restaurant I expected more especially as I gave notice of my dietary requirements. Other than that we can't fault it. We had a wonderful evening. Our bill was just short of £200 including 2 bottles of wine (lower end of the wine menu) so it's certainly not somewhere most of us can afford to eat regularly

Overall and excellent experience, really made to feel special by the staff, and the food was outstanding. We made a couple of poor choices with the wine which slightly took the edge off the experience (and added significantly to the price!) but other than this is was a fabulous experience.

Downside was we were all forced to have at least a three course meal.

The restaurant used to offer an a la carte option and not all of us wanted three courses -- although as it turned out the meals were very light.

Also if you didn't want meat you were forced to choose one of the four course £48 options.

The website is not totally clear about the menus being the only option on Sundays.
