We had a great time, food and drink was fab and love the feel of the place. The staff were fantastic but as we were seated on the mezzanine floor it would have been easier had the bar upstairs been open, a minor criticism though. Thank you

Best place in town to have group drinks and great food menu to go with it for those who are peckish. Always have a great time at Hemma. Thank you!

I recently held my retirement celebration at Hemma and I was very pleased with it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was comfortable and the food was excellent. I would strongly recommend it.

Lovely open space upstairs, with a big table and sofas where we could all hear ourselves. I was a bit surprised that tea was only available by the cup not pot, and another friend was stunned to be charged an extra 60p for non dairy milk! But all in all, we were looked after and had a good afternoon, thanks.

As a large group of about 30 people looking for a space for drinks and dinner so close to Christmas at the weekend, we were pleasantly surprised to find space at Hemma. Lauren couldn't have been more helpful in helping us book our buffet. We were super happy to have the whole of the upstairs space reserved for us, with our own private bar and bathrooms. The buffet was absolutely delicious and catered for everyone in our group. A huge thank you to all the team at Hemma for being super welcoming and making our night out as enjoyable as possible! We will be back!

We organised our running club Xmas party with Hemma and they were very flexible when our numbers increased. The service there is consistently good, and the location has a lovely atmosphere.

I had my daughters naming day recently and I couldn’t have asked for a better event organiser - Lauren. She was lovely, flexible and helpful. The food and drinks were very organised. The mezzanine at hemma was perfect. Only issue was Saturday afternoon it was very loud so some of the guests couldn’t hear the ceremony. I wanted to have the focal point at the top of the stairs but noise wise might have been better to do it at the other end of the room. No other issues.

The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Two of our party were very late for the meal, but this posed no difficulty for the kitchen and waiting staff. Lots of tasty options to suit everyone. Very enjoyable and lovely atmosphere.

Great set up for our Christmas Jumper day. 40 people came so the manager (Lauren - very helpful) reserved the whole of upstairs for us. Kids were able to play freely which is always a bonus! Food was great for such a large group. Will be back most definitely.

Fantastic as always. Organised a low key charity event and didn’t know numbers until the day. The events team were very helpful and got us a great table tucked away close to disabled access points.

Didn't actually stayed there as i was forced to cancel the booking. I had reserved a table onlune for 4 adults and a child at 18.45. Received the confirmation and asked to leave the table by 20.15. A friend of mine hasld spotted on the website that kids are welcome only until 8pm; I wasn't even gonna phone as I thought it would have been fine since it was confirmed that my booking was good until 20. 15, having received the confirmation that stated that there was also a child. I decided to double check and, when I phoned, the lovely gentleman confirmed my booking of 4+1 kid until 8.15. I then said about the website disclaimer and he said "oh yes that's true!" he checked with the lady supervisor who said that some minutes later was fine but not 10/15, so I had to cancel the booking. The guy phoned me back after 5 minutes asking if I wanted to eat at 6.15 but unfortunately I wouldn't have managed as I was working until 6. I just think that the supervisor was a bit strict with no reason: I understand the license, but it's either 8 sharp or 15 minutes is not a big deal compared to 10. Disappointed.
