I'd been to Hinnie's in the pre-corona times, but this was our first restaurant date out since lockdown began to lift. We had a lovely three course meal with quite a few drinks sitting outside on the patio. Luckily, we got a table in the sunshine-- otherwise, it would've been quite chilly. Almost everything was perfect, but my husband had the lamb, which was cold by the time it was served. Otherwise, stellar. A great local fav and a perfect recommendation for anyone visiting the Northeast for the first time.

Our first meal out in 7 months in the Northeast since restrictions on 17/09/20. Outdoor dining was comfortable on wooden benches and tables at the front on The Promenade with traffic running past. A pleasant, bright early evening but chilly; we were offered blankets. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was good quality bistro style. We had ham terrine to start, main courses of hake and venison burger followed by baked cheesecake. All was tasty. A pleasant evening

Lovely location on the sea front, little chilly in the shade but what do you expect for April in the North East. Quick service and great food.

So decided to book post lockdown meal having been here many times in the past. Food was delicious. Bit cold as the tables are in the shade but the throws provided helped. Will be back when we can sit inside 👍

It was great to be back at Hinnies after a long break. Menu remains exciting and accessible - our venison suet roll and hake were both outstanding. Staff were warm, welcoming, attentive and professional. We felt safe and relaxed and enjoyed a last evening out before lockdown. Will be back sooner!

Second visit to Hinnies. First was just so impressive, good menu beautifully cooked food with imaginative ingredients and subtle tastes. Excellent friendly service.

Second visit equally good. This is a special place, you won't be disappointed and the value for money of the set menu, well, just amazing

Very relaxing experience. All 3 of us thought our Sunday lunch was superb, and great value. Husband said it was the best roast beef he’s ever had. Staff were all very friendly. Have already highly recommended it to friends and family.

This was the second occasion on which I have dined at Hinnies, and my initial positive impression was confirmed by the excellence of the food, the diligent but not obtrusive staff, and the overall quality of the service provided. I have recommended the restaurant to friends and family, and I am sure that I shall visit the restaurant again.
