From the moment that we arrived until we departed the staff were found to be wecoming, very polite and attentive. They were more than happy to listen to our needs and adjust the food accordingly. As a pescatarian that was most welcome. The food arrived in a timely manner and was of an excellent quality, being well presented. We will certainly be returning.

A real gem of a find. Hesitate to say it is punching above its weight because there are so many great little places all over the country, but there is something special going on at H&P. Fantastic produce, preparation that lets the produce speak for itself and a team that clicks.

We visited on Easter Sunday with our daughter before she returned to university. This was without doubt the best meal/experience we have had out of all our visits. The service was unobtrusive but very efficient and although the restaurant was very busy, the food was nothing short of perfect. Full of flavour (the new beef and pork are delicious by the way), perfectly cooked and presented with equally delicious al dente vegetables. Thank you all - it was a great meal for a special occasion

I’m lucky to have the privilege of eating at your restaurant 3-4 x p year. The food in my honest opinion is the best in the country. When I visit there is always something different to try and choosing what to eat is such a hard choice. Keep up the excellent work.

Always a friendly and not too formal whilst maintaining high standards. Saturday nights are now taster menu only with no choice on dishes, this may be a problem if you’re vegetarian.

Incredible as always. My favourite restaurant for miles around. Another smashing job, and honestly, for what you get compared to other ‘tasting menu’s’ it’s an absolute bargain.

As usual everything very good apart from my lamb which was extremely fatty and impossible to cut so left it. Did tell waitress. Cottage pie was delicious.
