We had a fabulous breakfast and were very impressed with the food and the service the history of the building was really interesting too. My daughter really enjoyed her avo toast but didn't think it was good value for the price as you can have a full house (a big plate full of food for £10) and she got one slice of toast with half an avocado on and beetroot puree for £7.50 she was still hungry and was eating everyone's else's food! Maybe just provide more toast for that price??

I got what I went for and got what I expected. Would recommend this outlet to any given taste. I would comment though, that the staff ensure that when making coffee that it is hotter than I was served. passable but I do like my Latte to hold its temperature while I conduct a conversation with whom ever I am in the company of. Management always alert. Dave Lynham Given the opportunity will always consider a return visit.

Our visit was the first for many months, we received a warm and friendly welcome, good food and great service. We felt absolutely safe with the COVID precautions taken by the owners.

We really enjoyed our evening at Hawkes House last night, our first family get together for months due to lockdown! The staff were all very friendly and the food was very good! Thank you!

Limited menu due to restrictions. Staff were excellent. Very clean and staff aware of procedures. All staff wore masks throughout. Very quiet, which meant there was plenty of space.

Everything ran very smoothly, I love this local independent cafe and I was very pleased they were open again. The new covid system worked well. It was nice to return and feel like the old “normal” going out with a friend for brunch and a coffee.

Lovely relaxed place to eat. My family were late for our booked time, but the staff were fine about it. Once we had ordered the food came quickly and was exactly what we expected. The staff were friendly and not overattentive. Just what we wanted. There was a good turn over of people meeting family and friends and the atmosphere was great. We would book again if we were in Thornbury. Thank you.

Excellent service , once order placed , need to avoid busy times when ordering at the bar, need more staff at busy times to do drinks like coffee for people when other people are waiting to place their order. Staff all very friendly and courteous.

I always enjoy coming to Hawks House - either for a meal or just for drinks. On suggestion would be to have more non-alcoholic beers - my personal favorite is Galactic Milk Stout by Big Drop Brewing

Everything was great, my one little comment would be that the food reached me warm rather than hot, which I prefer.

We enjoyed a relaxed family breakfast and the "full house" option was great. Service was good too
