About Hammer and Pincers
Owners Sandra & Danny Jimminson were trained at the Savoy Hotel in London and after gaining further experience working in Switzerland, France and other high profile London restaurants, decided to settle close to where Danny grew up on the border of Nottinghamshire & Leicestershire.
We pride ourselves in sourcing some of the finest local ingredients, everything is made in house, We bake a selection of breads daily, make all our own desserts including the ice creams and sorbets, even all our accompaniments, horseradish, mayonnaise, ketchup & chutneys are made freshly on the premises.
Fantastic food, professional and attentive staff, and a relaxed easy going atmosphere.
Fantastic food and service, highly recommended.
The evening was very special. The food was absolutely magnificent and the the service with attention to detail was outstanding. Lovely knowledgable presentation of the food made it an exceptional experience. Thank you for the extra detail for my sons birthday.
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!
Simply stunning from beginning to end. An amazing culinary and sensory experience. Very highly recommended .
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.
We had a wonderful evening, thankyou again
I have never had a bad experience but it is good when you make a recommendation to someone for a special occasion and they say its the best restaurant they have ever been to!
Third time,and still love it. Great food and service. Thanks again D Bradshaw
Really enjoyed our meal, lovely special touches. We’ll be back!
This was our wedding anniversary, and as ever, dining here was a great experience. That's why we keep coming back! Excellent and interesting food and really good service.
Very relaxing place to dine, very good service staff were friendly and professional. Food and wine to a high standard and will definitely eat here again
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.
The atmosphere only got 3 stars as we were the only people lunching.
Excellent Sunday lunch and service as always
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.
excellent food for an excellent evening, it's great to hear about the food from the cooks first hand. Very personal service.
The bar area doesn’t really work once there are more than two couples / groups in there. The food was excellent!
Lovely meal - the food here never disappoints, highly recommended!
Will be back
A superb meal. Everything was cooked to perfection! We loved the complimentary plates. We will definitely be coming again.
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
