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.
My new favourite restaurant. If only I lived opposite. Food was beautiful and they were very generous portions. Couldn't fault in anyway. Certainly beats the Michelin restaurant in Mountsorrel.
Another excellent evening at the Hammer & Pincers. Delicious food in relaxed, cosy surroundings. My favourite restaurant.
Another superb meal at the hammer & Pincers for our wedding anniversary. As always it's the staff and the extra little touches which make the difference. I also have to add the the mash potato is better then mine, and I didn't think that was possible as I make the best mash in the world. Or 'used to make'.... Thanks again.
Incredibly welcome Fabulous food Great setting and atmosphere
It was one of the best meals I had for a long time.
Great and relaxed evening
Amazing food & great staff
Menu options were great especially the local game and cooked impeccably. The balance of flavours in the puddings were extraordinary.
We could not have been more delighted with our meals. Service was attentive without being irritating and the food itself was beautifully presented and with intense flavours. A lively Pino Gris was also enjoyed as the recommended wine. We only managed starter and main as we were full up but the puddings looked and sounded equally delicious. We're not likely to be passing by any time soon but if and when we do, we will definitely return, and can highly recommend. I particularly liked the fact so much was sourced from local farmers and other providers. I can only regret you're not nearer to where we live!
This was our first visit, but will definitely be followed by many more! We tried the grazing menu for lunch - superb!!! taste after taste of excellent flavours and great quality food. Fantastic service, friendly, helpful but not pushy. A wonderful place to enjoy a meal, and to take friends or family to. Thank you to everyone who made our lunchtime special. :
Loved the food, wine and service but felt the decor didn’t quite match the quality of everything else. Otherwise perfect. Maybe it’s cosier at night time as we came at lunch time
A truly wonderful gastronomic delight, you'll travel along way to get anything better in our opinion. Spoilt for choice on the menu which means you want to go back again and again. Keep up the good work
Another great dining night at The Hammer & Pincers. Guaranteed fine dining with related wines.
What a gem! Food, decor, service - all sublime!
Absolutely gorgeous food, imaginative dishes with fabulous flavours. Excellent quality, seems to have got even better over the last couple of years. A real treat as opposed to 'pub grub'!
We have been going to the Hammer and Pincers for a few years now and it is one of my absolute favourites. The food is some of the best I have ever had and I love the use of local produce. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the price is excellent. The only area where I think improvement is needed is service - at our most recent visit, the staff weren't quite on the ball, were a bit slow and missed things like taking a wine order before our meals arrived. But I am happy to let this go because, overall, I love it! I often recommend it to friends and will be back. Thanks very much.
Exceptional food as always, however on this occasion the service was a little on the slow side.
Excellent Sunday lunch
Excellent Sunday lunch and great value.
We had a fabulous meal, the H&P allways delights us
Delicious food, great price. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back.
Spectacularly wonderful!!! Everyone and everything at H&P is simply first class. Cannot recommend highly enough!!
Excellent service and what a lovely meal.!! Great portions and I can recommend the Hake curry. Beautiful. Thank you and I will be back for the 10 course taster menu with the family.
Delicious as always!
