Hammer & Pincers proprietors Danny and Sandra Jimminson trained at the Savoy under Anton Edelmann. Their stylish restaurant in Wymeswold was once home to the local blacksmith and an ancient hammer and pincers still hangs on the wall. Every aspect of their restaurant shows attention to detail, from the quietly attentive, professional service, to the smart glass water jugs and confident menu.

Giles Coren, writing in The Times, was impressed when he ate at the Pincers, scoring it 8.5 out of 10 and commenting that his 28-day-matured beef was “stunningly good”.

Great Food Club’s reviewer wrote of the Hammer & Pincers: “The twice-baked Colston Bassett Stilton Soufflé was light and savoury, with the apple compote cleverly foiling its richness. The new steak menu is brave and inspired – if someone you love deserves the best steak and chips in the region, the Hammer & Pincers has it nailed.”
