We had the St Patrick's Day menu here as a birthday treat. The food was delicious and they catered very well for our son who has food allergies. Having just turned 18 he tried his first whisky too, Irish of course. Not sure he liked it but we did in delicious Irish coffees!

Just had another wonderful evening at Friends in Pinner. We travel across North London to visit and it's a delight every time. This evening we had the scallops and salmon to start which were both equally delicious and the lamb and pheasant for main. Desserts are always awesome and their selection of wines compliment every course. We recommend the chateauneuf... More

An impromptu dinner, we were early and able to get a table without a booking. The meal was delightful and well presented by attentive staff. I went with the wine recommendations and enjoyed a choice I wouldn't have made

An excellent shepherds pie and I will be visiting the same pub again. On a friends invite we went to the Round Bush Aldenham for lunch. It was buzzing with people enjoying themselves and enjoying thier meals. My friend and I also enjoyed the meal,although I have to admit the rum ice cream pud was delicious. A very good atmosphere...

the quality of the food and service at Friends is always consistently good. The Restaurant itself is very attractive and the staff are really attentive. It is lovely to have a great local restaurant that is independent

We had perhaps built too high expectations of Friends having read a large amount of very positive reviews. Our belated Valentine's experience left us feeling somewhat underwhelmed. We received a warm welcome and the haggis cake starter was excellent. My partner's order was incorrect and what followed may have been a result of knock on effect on cooking times. My... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. There are no excuses for making a mistake with the order, and I understand why you didn't give us your comments when asked at the time if everything was ok. In fact I believe your partner actually said it was lovely. You omitted to say that you had a glass of... More

We had a great meal here, excellent food, beautifully cooked and well presented. A very comfortable restaurant without background music, so we could all communicate easily, much appreciated. Lovely little touches: appetiser, fresh and warm bread rolls, fresh flowers. Attentive staff and lovely to see that the owner takes all the orders and is fully present. This was our 2nd... More

Having been a guest at several excellent dinner parties here over the years, not to mention other smaller lunches and dinners, I decided to invite 18 close family members here to celebrate my 70th birthday. I reserved the whole of the upstairs area of this beautiful old building and working closely with the Chef Patron, Terry Farr, came up with... More
