Owners Sandra & Danny Jimminson were trained at the Savoy Hotel in London and after gaining further experience working in Switzerland, France and other high profile London restaurants, decided to settle close to where Danny grew up on the border of Nottinghamshire & Leicestershire.
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 magazine was also happy when its reviewer ate at the Hammer & Pincers in May 2011. “The twice-baked Colston Bassett Stilton Soufflé was light and savoury, with the apple compote cleverly foiling its richness,” wrote Rachel Quine. “The new steak menu is brave and inspired – if someone you love deserves the best steak and chips in the region, the Hammer and Pincers has it nailed.”
