    Food was good and well worth the price, but very disappointed in the size of the raspberry daiquiri, it was tiny and definitely wasn’t worth £10.

    Nice place, bit of a walk from the old town. The burgers were good but the Canadian special poutine fries were not special but not sure what they are meant to be like. Overall experience was good but not amazing. There was a good list of specials

    Overall our visit was good. The chicken wings were good. The chicken burger with buffalo sauce was really good. The Sandi’s smoked turkey club was ok but padded out with lettuce and other accompaniments where I was expecting more meat. Not bad but not fantastic

    The staff were absolutely delightful, so polite and I don't recall ever having better service. The food was majestic, so tasty and really good portion sizes, onion rings were out of this world! Drinks selection also super, some cracking craft beer on tap. I'll definitely be returning as soon as I can.

    Waiting staff were friendly but seemed constantly busy so really just had time for the basics. I had the brisket burger. Burger was clearly homemade but looked a mess. Brisket itself was tough and chewy and I couldn’t swallow it. Complained but apart from the waitress saying sorry there was no offer to take anything off the bill. My son’s burger was also a mess and he wasn’t keen on eating it so left half. Poutine was ok but looked chucked together and I’ve had a lot better. For what it was, it was quite expensive and unfortunately I wouldn’t go back again.

    As soon as you walk in the door you are transported to Canada! I love the theme and decor of the place 🇨🇦 Great food although maybe less value than other similar options around but it is worth it for the whole vibe and to finally try Poutine 🍲

    There's a new menu and it seems to do more harm than good. You can only get one size of poutine now and the one size you get is a small portion. The gravy must be a different recipe but it tasted very watery and not as flavourful as it used to. The poutine was cold for everyone on our table. The server forgot two of our orders. I had to ask three times if we could get water for the table. My burger was average. Had an ice cold bun but the insides were hot at least. Although they have a new menu, they still play the music way too loud (was a major complaint of mine in the past). And they play Netflix nature documentaries on the screen? Not even a complaint, just a really odd choice. If you want to go all in on the Canadian theme, at least play Canadian based shows. And if all of that isn't enough, I ended up paying £46 for two meals and two (bottled) Molson beers. Absolute ridiculous price for the low quality we received. Down the Hatch has been on thin ice before due to many reasons, but I always came crawling back for the good poutine. Now, since they can't even do that right, I can safely say I won't be going back to Down the Hatch again. I recommend everyone saves time (and money) and go somewhere else.
