Had the best experience here, staff were extremely friendly and professional. They all went above and beyond to make the occasion that little bit extra special.
Good honest food, beautifully cooked. Service attentive and friendly.
Fantastic service and excellent cuisine. The Hinds Head has upped its game since we were last here but expect a price tag to match.
My wife and mine 3rd visit, always exceptional. One of the waiters was a little too friendly and chatty with his choice of subjects, but other than that it was great.
Was really looking forward to this but it was possibly the most disapointing Michelin star 'experience' I've ever had. We visited on Boxing Day before a flight to warmer climes from Heathrow that evening. The pub itself is lovely and obviously has history. The welcome was friendly but a bit ott for a pub. We ate from the Christmas menu and all opted for Turkey dinners. The food was good but was exactly as described and nothing more, a reasonably well cooked roast turkey dinner with nothing particularly special about it. Indeed I have had home made roasts which were just as good. The cost for three roast dinners, two pints of decent enough beer and a coke was close to £150. Perhaps I expected too much (with this being a Heston Blumenthal owned pub with a Michelin star that I am mystified how it received) but I left feeling a bit deflated and slightly ripped off.
Fabulous - really good food, great service and a really nice atmosphere. We came here for a 60th Birthday celebration and it was perfect. Yes it’s not cheap, but I actually thought it was really good value. For 4 of us, with 3 courses each, a bottle of champagne and 2 bottles of wine it was just over £100/head - I don’t think you could get much better anywhere else.
Food not as good as last year when we went. One course was forgotten completely. Long waits between service opportunities. Expensive for the experience.
We had a lovely time at The Hind’s Head and had an amazing meal. The service however was not you would expect at a one Michelin star restaurant so it was disappointing.
Good food and excellent service. Would recommend it as long as you’re prepared to pay the somewhat inflated prices because of the ‘personality’ owner!
The Restaurant was great i though the entire menu was far too heavy and some lighter options on the menus would be great , however is that time of the year. By the time the main course arrived i did not want to see more gravy.
Dessert was different very tasty.
Service was good will come back in the spring once the menu lightens up a bit!
Very disappointed with the Hinds Head. The food was simplistic, though of good quality. The cost was expensive, but the setting was pretty dreadful. Sat next to the door, next to the bar. Every time the door opened a freezing cold blast of air shot across our table, followed by people near to our table.
For the cost - not really worth it. For the location of the table - wouldn't return in case we ended up there again.
Had a lovely roast dinner at the Hinds Head. The food was incredible cooked to perfection and the roast potatoes were best I have ever had!
Simply brilliant food, service and evening. Enjoyed by all. Staff are helpful, well informed, friendly and create a relaxed excellent dinning experience!
Fantastic cocktail, attentive staff, excellent food, perfect ambiance. A little on the expensive side but is worth the experience.
Well worth a visit. The team make you feel welcome and relaxed. A very enjoyable experience. Will go back.
The scotch egg and mustard mayonnaise hors d'oeuvre was excellent, perfectly soft quails egg and juicy sausage meat. We then had the cauliflower cheese royale which was very enjoyable, and the monkfish a la plancha which frankly was tough and overcooked. In hindsight I wished I had sent it back as you do not expect that at a Heston restaurant when paying almost £40 for a dish. For pudding we had the chocolate wine dish with millionaire shortbread, the 'wine' was light and refreshing, the millionaire shortbread strong and rich. Very indulgent.
Great staff and food
Birthday lunch fantastic value, nice ambience plus very tasty food. This was our first visit and will most certainly not our last.
Have been here many times. Ambience good. Service good. Food very average. And one main course of monkfish had little fish. Pork tasteless. Steak over salty. We left thinking that it was one of the most disappointing yet most expensive meals that we’d had anywhere for quite a while.
Absolutely wonderful staff. Could not be more helpful and attentive, without being overly-so. The crab soup with sandwich was to die for! How you cram so much flavour into an espresso cup, is unbelievable. The fresh fennel on the sandwich, brings a relief to the deep creaminess of the soup. The duck with beetroot barley..... Duck cooked to perfection. Moist, pink and packing yet more flavour. However, the beetroot barley lacked the sweetness it needed. Quite sour and the barley was too firm. I know that this is the end of the beetroot season, so they will not be as sweet as in their height, but a longer slower cooking with the barley, should have helped here. Chocolate pudding for desert..... Just perfect. Never had such a light, oozing, creamy, fluffy pudding ever. I didn’t know this restaurant was owned by Heston until after the meal, but you can definitely see the influences, which is why I asked the staff. I’d definitely recommend trying this before going to the Fat Duck. Definitely a venue for a special occasion.
Excellent Sunday lunch as always
Best Sunday Lunch eaten out
Nothing too much trouble
Very attentive service without being over the top
As always wonderful!! The hinds head never disappoints
Fantastic Perfect Sunday lunch menu
Lovely starters. Main course (had steak) not to my liking would of preferred fillet and choice of sauce.
Superb. As it always is.
Excellent service food and surroundings Sunday roast good value for money
Avoid - very disappointing. I am amazed it still has a star
I visited the Hinds Head with my husband to celebrate my birthday. From our arrival we were both made to feel very special. The staff arrived at the table with a birthday card and at the end of the meal, the petit fours arrived with a candle and a birthday message. I must say the staff were very professional and friendly, as you would expect from a first class restaurant. The food was delicious, faultless and very good value for money. Fantastic experience, thank you
What a pub! Has everything you need to make it the perfect place for a special occasion! The service was exceptional and everyone was very friendly! Excellent all round and would highly recommend.
Loved it. The team were great. Food & drinks delish
Upstairs bar is lovely - especially on a damp cold weekend. Couldn’t recommend it enough.
I could not make a reservation at The Fat Duck (which is Heston’s signature restaurant) so this is conveniently way cheaper. The entrée was exquisite (Oxtail pudding). The only thing I would complain about is the freshness of the dessert (Blueberry Trifle). It was not made that day, I could taste that. For the rest, it is excellent value for the money.
The place has a lovely peaceful atmosphere, excellent service and amazing traditional food!
Very accommodating due our day. Food sublime. Very knowledgeable staff.
We enjoyed a special lunch to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Our little daughter (16 months) also enjoyed herself very much, especially her lovely book given by the waiting staff - a very nice touch indeed! Bravo!
Great food. Very slow to organise our drinks order on arrival. Asked to pay the bill twice!
A bit of a disappointment for a Michelin starred establishment. Menu was quite limited in choices. Food ordered was of good quality although presentation was uninspiring and lacking flair and panache. Service was unremarkable, although the sommelier was very knowledgable and helpful. Overall felt like a good pub rather than a Michelin stared restaurant and hence was expensive in comparative terms.
Lovely as always, thank you! Excellent service and delicious food. A wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We were celebrating my daughter and son in laws wedding anniversary.
The scotch egg is a must have. We had Hash of snails, Smoked salmon and Crab sandwich with soup to start. 2 of us had Steak and 1 had Oxtail and kidney pudding, they were large portions served with very rich sauce. We were full by the time we ordered dessert but felt like we couldn’t finish the evening without trying one each.
Wine that we chose to go along with our meal was excellent too.
The waiting staff were very informative and attentive but not overly so.
My daughter and son in law were given an anniversary card which was a really nice touch.
