Just returned from an amazing culinary experience at The Hand and Flowers! Food was amazing and staff were attentive and extremely knowledgeable about each dish on the menu! Beautiful, relaxed atmosphere inside combined with delicious food and excellent service! Could not fault a thing! Can not wait to return! Excellent value!

Yes just an ordinary pub, but wow the food was great, terrific friendly service, relaxed and not up it self. Obviously very busy, but we had a little alcove away from everything, the waiting looked after us really well. The wine features a really good selection of English wines, which is good to see. The food was delicious and beautifully... More

Persuaded my wife and mother to join me eating the fillet steak as it was memorable from the previous visit. They were not disappointed although the 8oz portions required major appetites. For my next visit I'll skip breakfast to do justice to the lunch menu.

Any pub that serves food that beautiful, but also brilliant drinks and brilliant service cannot be faulted. We went for our first anniversary and it was beautiful.

Yes the food is excellent, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable service, lovely atmosphere but at the end of the day it is still a 'pub'. As mentioned in other reviews we also received delicious bread (soda bread in particular was the best), as well as whitebait which my husband ate all as I do not like this as it is very... More

This was our 2nd visit to the H&F. Like the new bar/lounge area and the service was excellent. Not so keen on the current dinner menu especially as we had to ask for explanations of several dishes and ingredients. Also, I wish they would have some decent vegetables to accompany the mains...currently only chips & potatoes & red cabbage available... More

You know that really lovely, caramelly, sticky part on a roast potato? Or the crispy but not quite burnt bit of fat on a rasher of bacon? Or maybe that dark brown bit of melted cheese on your cheese on toast? Imagine all of those fleeting explosions of taste in all of your favourite food distilled into one elegantly presented... More

We made a booking for two for an anniversary lunch. Overall good service and relaxed venue. Staff were friendly and attentive and seating spacious and comfortable. However, the food did not impress overall. The al la carte & set lunch menu choices were not terribly exciting, but we chose the salmon starter (delicious) and the pork terrine (OK). The real...

Obvious that was in midst of a busy service , not as attentive as usual, pleasant staff but not as welcoming as lunchtime , apparent that under pressure . Secured a 9. 45 seating months in advance so disappointed to wait 30mins. Nice gesture to offer a complimentary round of drinks however so late in the evening really just wanted... More

Super tasty food, I had a vegetarian starter and main. The cauliflower risotto was so delicious and flavours were immense as was all of the dishes. The restaurant is very intimate and cosy although very hot, wine choice was very good and servers were friendly and engaging.
