When Heston Blumenthal took over the Hinds Head, Bray in October 2004 he not only bought a piece of local history in this ancient Tudor building, but also created a unique approach to food and drink and an excellence in taste and flavour, that have since earned our well-loved pub a Michelin star.
Over the past decade, we have kept to that ethos by taking our menu inspiration from traditional British favourites, celebrating the best in seasonal produce.
Today, our menus still revisit old favourites, as well as great classics, that now include a list of cocktails and a new range of mocktails for our designated drivers.
From dinners to cocktail competitions, we will be arranging a number of events to celebrate and we want you to join us!
We will keep you updated with our monthly newsletter or why not follow us on Twitter with our hashtag #HHTenYears for the latest news!
We look forward to celebrating with you.

After the enforced hiatus of having to remove the Triple Cooked Chips from the menu, we are delighted to inform you that ahead of schedule we have been able to return this popular accompaniment back onto the menu where it belongs.
The timing of their return could not have been better as it nicely coincides with the new steak offerings that were recently added to the menu.
For meat lovers, is there anything better than a glorious piece of fillet or ribeye steak with a bowl of triple cooked chips on the side?
Personally, we think not.
At The Hinds Head, Bray, we know nothing can beat the smell of char grilled beef. That’s why we have introduced a new range of mouth-watering steaks.
You see, we take pride in providing quality to our customers. Our steaks are from sustainably reared, grass fed cattle and are dry aged on the bone for a minimum of 28 days to mature in flavour. Also, all of our steaks are brushed with smoked beurre noisette to make them even more divine.
Our range of succulent steaks include:
- Fillet of Hereford Prime (7oz)
- Ribeye of Hereford Prime (10oz)
- Bavette of Black Angus (8oz)
- Bone in Sirloin of Veal (10oz)
To accompany your steak, you can choose from a Reform, Bone Marrow or Béarnaise sauce. All equally delicious, full-flavoured and heavenly.
