Having had to book 9 months in advance, the restaurant lived up to expectations. Warm and cozy, we enjoyed the setting, the food was fantastic and the staff were great. A perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.

This was our third visit to The Hand and Flowers in the last 2 years and it's always an excellent experience. On this occasion there was no parking available and we were late getting in as a result. The food service after that was slow meaning that we were there for longer than the 2 hours allocated, however the staff... More

This lunch was booked as a surprise for my 40th Birthday and although we took a Monday off for the event, it was well worth it. The place was buzzing! Arrived early so sat in the bar area enjoying a pre-lunch drink. Staff were attentive but not pushy. As soon as our table was ready we were led through the... More

Coming from a country that doesn't have any Michelin star restaurants, we were excited to find one in the town in which we will be living for the next year. We were even more excited when an available table popped up on the night of our 30th wedding anniversary, especially when it can apparently often take up to a year... More

Yes its a pub the decor is modern not pubby they have tried to provide as many tables as possible in the given area with reasonable (a bit tight) access around each table). The food and service were exceptional. The only thing that didn't impress me was the wine list. The wines were very 'off the wall' with no usual... More

Enjoyed lunch here today. Pricey but wonderful. More an experience than a lunch. Warmly greeted and enjoyed coffee by the fire as we arrived early. Staff attentive and polite. The food and presentation was first class. All freshly prepared and cooked for you. No microwave.

This was booked for our Xmas last year but for a weekend booking we had to wait a year! Food and service impeccable, prices I cannot comment as it was a present. Main point in my opinion 'Is there any restaurant worth waiting a year for?'

I could not have enjoyed my time more at this restaurant. All the table chose the set menu lunch, which was amazing value. The service was great. Attentive but not overbearing. It was my birthday, for which they elegantly acknowledged it, without making a big fuss, This fits in well with the style of the restaurant. The food was wonderful... More

This was a birthday present for my daughter. On booking I was asked if there were any diet requirements which I thought would be a problem. When we arrived staff immediately discussed how they could accommodate her dairy free requirements and expertly took her through the menu. The meal and service were exceptional with a discreetly placed birthday card and... More

The general impression that most people get ( and I think they promote) is that this is just a pub with great food. It is a pub- but under no circumstances could you describe this as pub food- on a different level completely! Busy when we arrived, a bit of a circus but staff were friendly and helpful. They soon...
