Service was slow, the staff wasn’t very attentive although polite. Had to get our own highchair and ask for more drinks, didn’t get offered desserts. Although the food was amazing,

It's great to see the Hooden is still doing well in these tricky times. They've got all the expected Covid precautions in place and more. The atmosphere, food, drink and staff are still great. Recommended!

We had a lovely meal (shared platter) and we were unable to finish all the food as there was so much! Very tasty indeed. I think that we would look at the burgers next time as they looked great too. The only thing that detracts at all from the experience are the Covid screens, but that is not anything the restaurant can help. The staff were friendly and the drink menu is decent.

The ladies that were on bar duty last night (Wed 7/10 @ 7pm) were fast, friendly and good fun. A regular restaurant and bar for us, food always lovely, clean and Covid aware.

The Hooden on the hill is a really nice environment but was sadly let down badly by the quality of food and service. Initially started off well but there was a very long wait between the starter and main course. The main course was definitely more focused on quantity rather than quality. The plate was overwhelmed with skinny fries and also a huge pile of the beef brisket. The beef was very dry and tasteless with a BBQ sauce that was way too spicy. Fortunately the food was discounted as there is no way I would be happy paying £16.95 for such a poor quality meal. I will not be returning anytime soon
