Hammer & Pincers

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.”

  4. Joanne Withers says:
    Superb FoodI have been here a couple of times with different people and we all loved it. Great, friendly service from the minute you walk through the door. A fabulous selection of gins is a great bonus for a pre-dinner drink. The food - well - so delicious and stylish and creative and I can't recommend it enough.
  5. Chris Batty says:
    Great foodMy wife and I had the taster menu which was ten courses with different wines with each course. Both the food and wine were extremely good and the service was very good as well with the waitress obviously interested in telling us what country and region each wine came from. We will go again with friends.
  6. Louise Cundy says:
    AmazingThis place is perfect in every way, but the thing that stands out is the most important element - the food! It's completely delicious & fantastically presented, on a par with Michelin restaurants I've visited. The service is fantastic and the place has a lovely vibe to it too.
