We called in The Hinds Head after eating at the Fat Duck. It's literally steps away and we just weren't ready to head back the hotel yet! Gorgeous choice of gins and tonics, lovely bar snacks and a cosy authentic pub!

Went there for a Birthday meal on short notice. The environment is very cosy and has the typical British pub feeling. Service was good. Food was good but not the type that would blow your mind. Traditional pub meal cooked well I'd say. Steak was cooked very well.

Had a really lovely dinner here last night, my 3rd visit and I've never been disappointed! Last night I took a notoriously fussy friend and he has been raving about the fantastic food ever since, so it can definitely please even the most difficult of customers ;) The devils on horseback and scotch eggs must be tried to start with...

Really enjoyed the food here. Went as a group of 4 and all of us really enjoyed the food and have been back on a number of occasions.

Food was excellent. Rib eye very very tasty and the veal was beautifully cooked rare. Fell in love with the green beans and the carrots! A must! We received an anniversary card and complimentary Happy Anniversary desert with a candle. Nice touch. Worth a treat here and yes a little pricey but great experience even so!

I was really looking forward to my fist visit to The Hinds Head, with friends who have been before and told me it was very good. We arrived early for our table with the idea of having a drink first. The welcome was not at all warm, we were told we were early in a rather off-hand way. We found... More

Actually stumbled across this place by accident and was very pleasantly surprised (didn't know about the Heston connection until after we left !). The two things that really stood out were the Service, which this was right up there with the best we've seen and the food. I love my steak and theirs was on par with the /or even... More

We travelled 70 miles and thought we would pop in for a quick drink, we had 1 pint of ale and a southern comfort and lemonade this turned out to £10-50 which I wonder why it was nearly empty

Maybe I was expecting too much from a pub run by Heston? The serving staff were friendly and attentive. However the steak at £30 with no sides was about a third fat and the chicken pie was nothing special. The triple cooked chips were cooked to the point there was no soft centre.
