We were out for a birthday treat for my son who's at Loughborough Uni so we don't know the area at all. I found your restaurant via trip advisor and decided to take a gamble...best gamble ever taken. That was one of the best meals I've ever had, flavours were truly amazing and looked totally awesome. All four of us almost licked the plates clean it was so tasty and the cucumber sorbet was a first...completely delicious. What a great find, will be telling everyone who has to travel that way to come and try it. Thank you for such a lovely experience.

The Lunch was excellent as per norm. BUT My wife and I were disappointed that that we presented with a single petit four each with our post lunch coffee. Plus the petit fours were different sweets, so we had to bite half each!

We had another fab time at Hammer and Pincers. Everything was lovely but the highlight must be the chocolate pudding. The salty but sweet foam was amazing! When will the Michelin star be awarded?

Not eaten here for ages - and now wondering why on earth we haven't been back sooner. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening (special birthday meal for my husband) the food was superb, wonderful flavours all beautifully executed and presented. Excellent service too - just the right level of attention. A real treat.

A special thank you for having a vegan menu. It means I, as an omnivore, have the pleasure of dining at the Hammer and Pincers with my vegan husband. Keep it up!

A fantastic evening. I came to the restaurant with my friend and son. None of us could find fault with anything. I loved the cheesey bread!!! I ate so much!!! The Indian cod was superb and the mushroom scotch egg was mouth watering. Staff were great, so helpful friendly and professional. We had a lovely young lad helping us. It was all great. And we all thought the art work was fantastic. I have already bought a rugby print. I want the Angus photograph now. Lovely decor too. Brilliant
