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.
Excellent warm welcome and fantastic Sunday lunch and service.
A wonderful night. The food, wine and atmosphere where 5 stars! Well done H&P
We had the ten course grazing menu which was amazing. Our waiter I can’t remember his name was superb his knowledge of the food and drink he was serving was outstanding. Can’t wait to return.
Always excellent, highly recommend
Excellent food and service, woukd highly recommend. Many thanks
This was a truly memorable meal. It was outstanding and was our fine dining highlight of the year. Thank you for an amazing lunch. Very much above our expectations. We look forward to returning very soon to experience the taster menu.
We had the most enjoyable Sunday lunch. I can honestly say that my partner and I agreed that we had the best Sunday roast we’ve ever had! Starters and desserts were also fab. My parents thoroughly enjoyed their lunch too and they chose the vegetarian option. Relaxed and friendly service. All in all you really got everything spot on and we will definitely return.
The usual high standards for Sunday lunch. Have you considered adding a chicken option to the Sunday menu?
So pleasing to note that the very high standard you set has been maintained mont aftermonth.
Loved my Negroni as an aperitif and barman knew exactly what is was (sadly rare) - so why not suggest different types of aperitifs as I would prob default to a beer (do other people?). Food was stunning - all courses were really execellent. The table service was friendly and unstuffy - which is nice. Just because it’s fine dining doesn’t mean people don’t want to have a laugh/joke or two.
Always fabulous food & service to match! Highly recommended!
Delicious lunch, look forward to seeing you again soon.
Absolutely beautiful food. Great service and very helpful front of house. Will definitely be back
An excellent dining experience!
We are regulars at the Hammer & Pincers and always enjoy it, so it's quite something to say that yesterday's meal was the best I've had there. Excellent.
Food was very good and so was the service. The complimentary bread was superb, in particular the stilton bread!
Best food and service ever.
We booked our lunch in advance - got a 'coffee table' for 4 people - even if there were empty tables available for all our lunch next to us. We were rushed with the menu choices...and later went even worse- one of the waitresses wanted to take my plate while i was still eating ......as for the food- very bland, lack of seasoning, cold.... in genereal deeply dissapointing; we wont be returning
Have eaten here a few times and can’t fault it. The staff are lovely, attentive without being intrusive, the atmosphere is warm and friendly and the food is top notch. Fine dining at affordable prices.
We enjoyed an absolutely delicious Sunday lunch here! Only regret was that we didn't have enough room for dessert! The service was excellent too! My husband mentioned that he might go to the bar to see what beers were on offer when the waitress was taking the drinks orders. But the barman came over a few minutes later to our table with a little taster of the guest pint so my husband didn't have to get up. That was a nice touch. Well done. Everything was perfect. Thank you very much! Would definitely recommend.
Another wonderful lunch. Many thanks.
Fantastic meal as always...especially loved the braised beef which although very rich complimented the fillet superbly
Never disappointed. The food, service and ambience are superb.
have been on many occasions and not once have I been disappointed, food service and atmosphere always 1st class.
Never had a bad meal here in ten years plus Best restaurant in the East Midlands outside of Sat Bains and Johns House
