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.
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.
The best meal we’ve had anywhere! The food was absolutely delicious - exceptional quality and excellent presentation, The service was faultless and we wanted for nothing. Marvellous experience all round. Thank you to all at the Hammer and Pincers.
Another excellent lunch. The chocolate dessert was sensational! The Hammer and Pincers never disappoints.
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
Amazing food and service. We picked the hammer and pincers to celebrate a special occasion and they did not fail to deliver! Will definitely be back :)
A lovely relaxing evening. Staff were attentive and helpful and the food was fantastic!
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.
Lovely atmosphere , with excellent food and service
Very enjoyable experience. Not cheap ...but great food and lovely environment.
Once again a fabulous meal in lovely surroundings with exceptional service.
Lovely food and service
Roast beef looked so good, I wish I'd ordered it! Super meal on Sunday.
Excellent place to meet friends . Delicious food, pleasant surroundings and a laid back ambience . We couldn't find anything not to like.
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.
Lovely evening as always thank you
My favourite restaurant in Leicestershire. You never fail to provide a perfect evening, thank you
Lovely food and service
Wow! Fantastic quality food in both taste and appearance, with good service.
The excellence of the food is matched by the excellence of the service.
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.
Lovely evening thank you Delicious food
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.
Amazing Sunday Lunch. Lived the venison Ragu. The young waitresses where excellent
The seven course grazing menu was excellent
