Serving staff were amazing as always. Food is consistently very much overseasoned throughout several visits now. Shame as takes away from the natural flavour of the excellent meats and fish.

Food was excellent as usual but the service is what distinguished it. Very impressed that the staff picked up this was our anniversary and made a point to congratulate us at the end of our meal. Very touched.

A casual smart bistro with excellent and inventive food. The staff are friendly and attentive. Pinion is well positioned to serve pre and post theatre diners when Shakespeare North opens. I’m sure they will do it well.

What a lovely lunch with mum. We were greeted by James who was amazing throughout the whole dining. James really made our day and made my mum smile and laugh and instantly feel comfortable with his complements and friendly approach which was very much appreciated. Also the lady who was on lunch service was lovely too (I didn’t get her name) when undecided which dessert to choose as I love the honeycomb but really wanted sticky toffee she very kindly arranged for it to be served with a piece of the honeycomb too. The food was amazing I highly recommend the sticky pork knuckle it was a flavour explosion and was throughly enjoyed. All of the meal was lovely. Friendly atmosphere and a chilled vibe.

This was our first visit since the end of lockdown, but our third lunchtime visit since it opened. Different menu and could not anticipate how good it would be. Had the lunchtime special, three courses for £23. Excellent value. Wife and I ordered different food for each course. All equally delicious and the service was perfect. Attentive but not obtrusive. Would highly recommend a visit to Pinion.

Fantastic meal as it is every time we come , the beef is as good as it can possibly be, had the cauliflower risotto starter and that was great as well. My only criticism is the bread they give you at the start is to big ( but so nice I have to eat it) and I had no room for a pud !

We ate Saturday evening and there were a reasonable number of diners present. Our table was upstairs with a good view of the open kitchen. The service was very good and all our questions answered immediately. The food was served on hot plates and the portion size was just right. You do need to order a side veg to go with the main course. I will definitely be booking again.

We went on a Sunday and had the Sunday roast which was one of the best I’ve had!
The staff were very polite and helpful!
Would 100% return again and try something different.

Difficult to score ? Personally when life is hectic and you get the opportunity to dine out and chill out, I want to really enjoy it as time for me is luxury.
Was seated upstairs which was cold in temperature and in atmosphere, the chairs were very uncomfortable. I had expected more from the interior and comfort as I had been told there was a designer involved.
We both had Roast beef and it seemed good quality and cooked perfectly, would have got more stars if it was not covered in a gravy which was very salty. Our server was very pleasant and professional, again more stars if it was easier to get their attention. Will definitely try again but request a table downstairs!

Not great.
Lukewarm at best.
Paid the supplement of £40 to upgrade the beef on a Sunday roast. This wasn’t bad. Not great. Just, not bad. Can’t say the starter was much better.

Couldn’t recommend the place even though I’ve seen some good reviews.
