The Hinton Arms

New dates for your diary soon!

An update on a few changes you might notice if you visit The Hinton Arms: 

Our new menu is available now. We will still be offering a takeaway collection service during opening hours (20% discount on menu prices for takeaways). 

Our lovely waiting staff will continue to wear face masks which they have all requested to do, please respect their decision. If you wish to wear face masks when you come inside the pub to place your orders or use the facilities, we would be more than happy for you to do so. 

Hand Sanitisers will continue to be on all tables inside and outside for your use. 

Our Marquee will remain on our garden up until September at least, we will continue to take reservations for tables inside and outside. 

The only change you will see is there is no longer table service outside (give our poor legs a rest!). If you are sitting on the patio, garden or marquee area you will be asked to queue up at the front of the pub and place your order for food and drink at the bar when it is your turn. We will be doing our best to avoid a rush of people at the bar hence a queuing system we think is the best way forward at the moment. 

Inside it will continue to be table service as it always has been. 

Our tables outside will remain spaced apart as we thankfully have a large outside area. Inside we will be allowing more than 6 people to sit together on one table but we will still be thoughtful of allowing space between tables. 

We have kept our bar stools in storage for now and will politely be discouraging people from standing at the bar. Our sneeze guards / Perspex screens will remain on the bar for the foreseeable future. 

Doors and windows will remain open for good ventilation. 

We hope you still continue to feel safe when you visit us and we hope to see you soon. 

Weary walkers and well behaved children welcome. Dogs are welcome in the bar area only.

Please advise at the time of making a table reservation if you need to be seated in the bar area because you wish to bring your dog(s). 

We are renowned for our generous portions but we can also make many dishes for those with smaller appetites - please ask your waiting staff.

Ample free parking is available. 
Coaches are welcome by prior arrangement.
