Visited on a Friday lunchtime for our wedding anniversary, friendly professional staff , food was excellent on presentation and taste, took the 3 course set menu with 3 or 4 choices in each at £30 pp, very good value considering the quality you receive, small bar area as this is 'much more' of an eating pub/restaurant than a drinking pub,...

Hammer & Pincers stood up to the high standards and expectation I was anticipating! My partner and I visited for a birthday/anniversary meal out. Having lived in lboro and Notts I was amazed I hadn't stumbled across this Gem before. I wish I had! Everything was perfectly cooked. The dishes were very well thought out, every ingredient enhanced to bring... More

I visited the hammer & pincers with a work colleague for dinner after a meeting in the area, it was pure luck that we found the restaurant as we were following the sat nav back and just decided to stop there as we were hungry and hadn't seen anywhere else! I am so glad that we did as the food... More

I went here with a friend for dinner and it was very good. I have no hesitation recommending it. Food was lovely and the quantity was just right. Lots of different gins if that's your thing. Attentive service but not overly so.

Visited on recommendation and very pleased we did. Staff very friendly, polite and not over attentive. Good selection of drinks, including non alcoholic cocktails. Lots of different gins, including Adnams Copper House from Southwold....which is in Suffolk, not Norfolk as it says on their drinks menu!! One of the non alcoholic drinks should have included Basil; when it arrived it... More

We have been here many times for lunches and evening dining, with friends and family. The food is always good, however one friend she said was not impressed with Vegan side of the menu. Staff are always lovely and in good spirits and look to be actually enjoying what they do.

After being in the area of Loughborough for work I researched the best restaurant to dine in as a lunch treat for my Mum. Hammer and Pincers layout and decor was lovely and we were greeted by a very welcoming member of staff. We decided to have the al-a-carte menu starter, main and desert. We were firstly given some homemade... More

Visited here with friends for the first time on Sunday 23 Oct. We had the three course Sunday lunch. The food was high end excellence. Especially the sweetbreads starter I'm told. Good value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Went here for dinner with friends. We were instantly impressed by the atmosphere and decor. I had the scallops starter, beef main and blackberry and chocolate dessert. All three courses arrived in a timely fashion, were absolutely delicious and well balanced in terms of flavours and textures and were beautifully presented. This was my first visit but I doubt it...
