    This one Michelin star pub’s unique approach to food and drink makes The Hinds Head a special place to visit.

    The menu at The Hinds Head offers a selection of traditional British cuisine, and in keeping with the history of the building, Heston Blumenthal has been working closely with the Tudor kitchen at Hampton Court Palace in a bid to reintroduce historic British dishes like Hash of Snails, Oxtail and Kidney Pudding made with real suet pastry and the Wassailing.

    A separate bar menu offers lighter snacks, real ales, a carefully selected wine list and cocktail menu that includes concoctions like the Great Expectations.
