My family & I dined at Friends on Saturday evening to celebrate our anniversary. We had a really lovely evening. The food was excellent & the ambiance of the restaurant is relaxing and friendly. We are still talking about it ! We would thoroughly recommend Friends and will be back again in the near future.

We have been coming here for many years and so it was an obvious choice for a special lunch. They were very helpful in arranging the booking, despite the easter date, and accommodated all my guests' dietary needs and were relaxed about the numbers changing at the last minute. The food was delicious, with a good choice in all courses,... More

Another lovely lunch visit for aunty lys and her family (neice, nephew, me, and two friends) they could not do enough to accommodate us. Aunty lys, aged 93, and in a wheelchair is not a problem for the lovely terry and his team. She has been eating there for 20+ years. Nothing is too much trouble. Oh - and the... More

What made this dining experience extra special for us was the environment. It's almost like dining at someone's home. Really relaxed atmosphere. Food was great too and the service was personal.

This little hidden (even though it's on one of the two 'main' thoroughfares in Pinner) serves up perfectly proportioned delicious food my only issue is after visiting several times throughout the year I find the menu very safe and somewhat uninspired. If you are looking for good solid food in a small intimate setting then it is worth a visit...... More

Meal: mouthwatering. Atmosphere: Charming. Service: Sublime. If you haven't been to Friends, do go as its v good indeed. I started going in the early nineties, have rarely had a poor meal, and have enjoyed many exquisite experiences, fine wines (try the Margaux!) and entertaining banter from its lovely owner Terry. Need I say more...

A simply stunning meal with real character and some very hard choices between equally impressive options. The staff and chef were extremely helpful in dealing with complex dietary constraints too (and always are). The wine list is full of gems too - always revelatory. A lovely setting for an intimate meal. Service thoughtful and friendly.

After many years reacquainted with Friends recently as a guest at a celebration. Professional service, delicious modern English food. Extensive choice. About 20 accomodated in one of the upstairs rooms. Good venue for such an event.

Thank Aldhelm
