We think the intense and well balanced flavours of the food at the Hammer are as good as anywhere we have eaten, including Michelin starred restaurants.

A warm welcome, followed by exceptional customer service to accommodate dietary requirements. Then came the food, we went for the grazing menu and each course was amazing, perfectly cooked and delivered at just the right pace. Throughout staff were friendly and informative making the dining experience extra special. This is Michelin star Level food at an affordable price, we will be back very soon!

Another delightful lunch at the Hammers & Pincers. Excellent food, attentive staff and relaxed atmosphere. What's not to like? I was with an older friend with some health problems, and the waiters knew how to be helpful and supportive without being intrusive.

Fantastic meal, Really top class food. My wife started with the ponzu marinated trout dish, I had the scallops and rilette dish to start, both were exceptional. The bread cam with oil, hummus and butter, we devoured the lot. For mains we both had the beef dish, truely outstanding food. Really enjoyed the palette cleanser too, dill and cucumber sorbet. How this restaurant doesn’t have a Michelin star, I don’t know, it’s that good. Better food that the manor aux quatre season which has two stars.

We had the set menu at lunch time and everything we ate was delicious and beautifully presented. The sorbet between our starters and main course and the petit fours at the end of the meal were very tasty surprises. The service was excellent. We shall definitely come again.

We had a lovely meal. Thank you. The only problem I encountered was trying to book our table on line. I eventually gave up and phoned. However this is much less convenient for me.

The bar area doesn’t really work once there are more than two couples / groups in there. The food was excellent!

Our whole experience was amazing. We had a lovely anniversary meal. Our waiter was so nice.. I forgot his name but he was attentive and definitely good to talk to. Complements to the chef, the food was amazing and they definitely deserve another rosette!

Our first visit to this restaurant and we were extremely impressed. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented. We found this restaurant to be better than many of the Michelin star restaurants we have dined in. We will definitely return
