- Visitor Information
Tucked away in the sleepy back streets, the Hemingford isn’t screaming at customers “come, drink here!” It doesn’t need to. This place already has a shining reputation with locals and knowledgeable visitors alike.
Dangling from the ceiling, draped across the walls, in just about every conceivable location, is an endless menagerie of oddities; the antiquated instruments, chests, film posters spark an interest in all who visit. There are plenty of tables outside, the view’s not the best - a couple of mini-roundabouts – but it’s a choice spot to make new friends on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
This is a traditional pub which tries to maintain that time-honoured, friendly, community atmosphere. Music can be heard seeping out of the doors and windows on a regular basis, the bluegrass sessions are particularly popular.
Your thirst can be quenched with the usual range of generic beverages as well as a reasonable assortment of bitters. They inexplicably stopped serving their delicious Thai menu for a few months but now it’s back with a vengeance.
