    Food is consistently good in taste and value. I like the upper patio, but beware of birds indoors. And although plenty warm, opt not to sit near the outer wall, which can be drafty. Overall, it's a great meeting place for visiting friends.

    The fish and chips was poor at best. Chips were soggy and the fish (what there was of it, for it was mostly over-cooked batter) was over-cooked and stringy. The only good item was the coleslaw. Very disappointing.

    We must commend Hemmingways for their online reservation system both in the reserving of a table and in in followup, which was extremely user friendly. One of the more pleasant experiences we encountered was the friendliness and attentiveness of the waiters and waitresses, second to none in our opinion. The food served was well prepared and tasty and as for the ambience lets face it this is essentially a pub and no more or less than what would normally be expected. All in all we would highly recommend this eatery

    Chicken fingers were like a hockey puck and the fries were hard and cold. Chicken wrap seemed like it was made the day before horrible food. When I brought this to the attention of the server I was told “ it’s only pub food it’s not like gourmet food”. Wow I highly DONOT recommend

    Our usual very satisfying experience at Hemmingways. Staff are great; congenial, helpful, informed about menu, efficient. It got very noisy as the restaurant filled up which made it difficult to talk. My husband is hearing impaired so it’s always a problem as the evening progresses Food was very good: lamb shank. Maybe a little too much dark gravy but tasty, we were happy with our dinners and serviced

    I really enjoyed the food, the location, the ambience. The people that greeted me were great but service was lousy. I felt like I was being overlooked by the server and had to request things condiments, ordering food, the specials and so on. The server was the worst I’ve ever come across. This is what made my overall rating go from 5 stars to 4 stars. It was hard to forget the lousy service. All other things were great for a business lunch!

    Great restaurant. Always a good time at Hemingways. Although this evening was not as lively as expected. Regardless the live music at the downstairs bar was great. As well as the bar upstairs was fun as well. Food was good as well.
