    The service was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, I particularly appreciated the many flavours which could be individually identifiable as they were not masked by an excess of chilli. There was a good choice of alcohol free drinks which were delicious and married well with the dishes. As our table was booked early, there were not many people there, so it is a little difficult to rate the ambiance, however, the waiters did their utmost to make our meal a most pleasant experience.

    We always enjoy our lunches at Hawkyns & the quality & value is unmatched anywhere in the home counties. The influence of Mr Kotchar is the key & to meet him again for about 4th/5th time in 20+ years was again a privilege.

    The food is delicious and some what reasonable priced. Although staff were not attentive, and seemed lost when serving. We had to keep going to get our own menus and going to the wine bucket to pour our drinks. The staff definitely needs to be more attentive

    Went for Valentine’s Dinner, we both opted for the chef’s tasting menu and additionally the accompanying wine flight. Food was excellent, if being critical perhaps slightly samey for two of the seven courses, with the first course missing the sparkling wine (no champagne) and subsequently produced after the plates, with speed versus articulation of the wine. Not enough staff perhaps as had to request sparkling water several times before receiving

    I have nothing but praise for this restaurant. Two Michelin star chef offering a £21.5 three course lunch menu with bubbly!!! Who’s heard of such value for money these days. Food was delicious, perfectly cooked, spiced, beautifully presented (desert was not as great as mains). The service was attentive and efficient. Ambiance is a little lacking but it was a weekday lunch, maybe it’s cosier at nigh. Highly recommend.

    The Tasting Menu was outstanding with all courses well balanced with very good paired wines. All the staff were attentive and helpful without being overbearing. There appropriate timings between each course. Over the years we have sampled Tasting Menus at Cliveden, Le Manoir , Spagos (Wolfgang Puck) in Singapore and many others. Hawkyns over the two nights we ate there was up there with them.

    We enjoyed the meal. The curry was good. However it felt like it was all brought in and not very personal. Wine pricing is a bit odd. A bottle of wine costs £10 more than buying 3 individual 250ml glasses.

    The food was amazing. Very tasty and nice size portions. We has the 3 course set lunch menu and my partner, who eats more then me left feeling full. The waiting staff were great, I have 3 allergies and they were very knowledgeable about the menu. The chef swapped a few ingredients around so I could enjoy the dishes I wanted and I felt very safe in there hands. Lovely little table by the window bay. We will go back.

    Having been regular customers and the third NYE in a row, am sorry to see that probably due to rising costs? The portions were smaller than previous years (eg: 1 scallop not 2), the drinks- martini was smaller; no glass of champagne with the canapés, and the service a bit less attentive than usual. Sorry to say goodbye to Rohan, who always made us so welcome and ‘important’. Food however was excellent as always! We will still be returning, but maybe not another NYE.

    We're never disappointed at Hawkyns - the food is truly delicious and the staff are excellent. There was one very noisy table which did affect the ambience, but other than that, a super evening and celebration for a 95th birthday.
