The service was exceptional, staff really friendly and willing to accommodate any requests throughout the evening. The food was amazing and catered to all our dietary requirements with great presentation.

Thank you Hinton's for putting on a wonderful lunch for my mother's 80th birthday. Fantastic food and lovely service. You were having a busy day, yet there was still attention to detail and care.

Recently had Sunday lunch at Hintons. It was a busy day with 3 large tables, however the friendly staff looked after us really well and had wine and food out to us quickly. Well done Hintons, I was concerned when I saw the crowd but you handled it well!

We had a party of 18 for a Family Birthday. Dined out on balcony which made it nice and private. Dina was very helpful in arranging everything to make this a great success, food and service was great. A great touch having birthday recipients name on menu she loved it. My first experience dining at this restaurant, would definitely return.

Thank Marie Therese H
