When booking we have two options:

Fine Dining Restaurant – we offer a choice of an a la carte or 6 course tasting menu which you can view in the Restaurant tab. Bookings are required and are secured with a credit card. You will be charged £30 per person if you cancel within 24 hours of your booking. This will be credited against your bill if you re-book within 6 weeks.

When booking you agree to our terms and conditions – see below.

Wine Bar – we encourage Wine Bar bookings, particularly at busier times, but we will always keep some places available for walk-ins. We will hold your table for 15 minutes unless you call to let us know that you are running late. Bookings are for 2 hours; if you would like your table for longer please give us a call to discuss. Due to the uncertainties of the British weather, we do not take bookings in the Courtyard. Tables are allocated on a first come basis. You may request a Courtyard table on your booking; this does not constitute a confirmed Courtyard booking but we will endeavour to seat you outside as soon as we can.

Please make bookings for up to 6 using our online booking system. For groups of more than 6 please give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you. For groups of 9 or more we will ask for a £10 per person deposit.


If you would like to bring a birthday cake please call us to discuss. We are happy to accommodate this but do charge a small fee of £2 per person on the wine bar. In the restairant if you would like to bring your own cake instead of a dessert there is a charge of £5 per person.

You can book a table either by calling or emailing us or by using the online booking system.

The time slot you select is the time that you will be seated in the restaurant.  Please contact us should you be delayed as late arrivals can disrupt service.

We require a minimum of 24 hours notice to amend or cancel a reservation.  You can amend a reservation by contacting us on 01883 771215 or email

For all bookings guests are required to provide credit/debit card details to secure the reservation.  Hammond’s reserve the right  to charge any guest cancelling within 24 hours, or any guest who fails to show for their reservation, £30 per person against the credit/debit card provided at the time of booking without further notice.

For the Wine Bar we will hold your table for 15 minutes before giving it to someone else. 

The Restaurant at Hammond’s is for over 12s only.  For your enjoyment, and that of your fellow diners, we don’t allow younger children.  We don’t have a children’s menu but can provide smaller portions on request.

The Wine Bar and Courtyard at Hammond’s do welcome younger children especially at lunchtime.  We have highchairs and baby changing facilities as well as a little more space to tuck prams and pushchairs out of the way.  You should appreciate that in the evenings the Wine Bar is more of an adult focussed environment.
