Staff were polite and friendly but had quite a long wait for drinks and food, also wasn't the warmest place I've been lately. Food and coffee was very good when it finally arrived.

Great location, very friendly staff, fab for anytime of day, food or just coffee and cake , love meeting friends for brunch, eggs royale cooked to perfection. Good on the Covid measures too with booking online for a table, QR code, track & trace list, different entrance and exit and great outdoor space. Well done Hawkes House.

Overall my visit to Hawkes House was pretty fantastic, especially the food and the waitress who served us throughout the evening. Initially we were able to sit outside for some drinks prior to eating and were told it was table service. Unfortunately, we were forgotten until prompted and those who were seated after us were served so our feelings of neglect were justified in my opinion. However, that was the only dampener on the whole experience. In particular the waitress and kitchen staff were incredibly accommodating. We were told there was no more cod and typically 2 of our party wanted the fish and chips but we were told we could have smaller pieces of fish as a substitute. And for that we were very grateful and thrilled when the food turned out to be delicious. The waitress was fantastic - really friendly and chatty and made our visit a pleasant and relaxing one. Will definitely return without question. Thank you.

I really like the atmosphere at Hawkes House. It’s very inclusive, and relaxed. They are managing the Covid measures effectively and cheerfully, which is a credit to them. We had a great value Sunday lunch, which came in a good length of time.

First breakfast out for some months and it didn’t disappoint. The only slight improvement would be not to overcook/reheat the mushrooms. The Attic tea was great too. Impressive COVID-19 precautions.

The roast potatoes were dry. The roast beef was in 1cm slices, so tough to eat and very chewy. Beef should be sliced thinly. The service was haphazard

Cosy environment with friendly staff. Have eaten here before and really loved it. This time it was just average. Maybe my expectations were too high as a first meal out since lockdown began. But enjoyable enough for me to be planning a return visit soon.

It is great to see Hawkes House open again, they gave confidence with a safe operation from arrival to departure with great food and great service. If I was to be picky, we felt a little forgotten about on occasion, especially when it came to clearing plates from the main course and when serving desserts. I appreciate the style of service has changed, it’s now completely table service and does put more of strain on the service team, hopefully these were just teething issues they’ll soon iron out. All in all, I wish HH and the team the very best and we will continue to support this fantastic eatery

Booked a table and requested a high chair but this was not at our table upon arrival. The person checking us in though was very good and got one straight away. There are 2 entrances to this establishment and as one is now being used as the main exit it becomes a little draughty if you are sat by it when people are leaving.
