    The food and service was outstanding, our waiter gave recommendations on the food and was extremely attentive and professional. We went for my husband’s birthday and they surprised him with a dessert with candle and happy birthday message which was a lovely touch and completely complimentary. Definitely one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time.

    Have dined at Hawkyns on a number of occasions and rated the food and service 5 star on all occasions. This time the lamb was not to my liking as it was cooked rare and was a struggle to get through. Hopefully just a blip in the otherwise excellent food in all AK restaurants.

    Food was unique to me but not exceptional. It is extremely expensive and the premium price is not justified. A rather strange setting in a converted hotel bar . Table was sticky to touch. Drinks expensive too. Had to park on the street as hotel park was closed.

    Good good but slightly let down by some poor service. When spending £75 a head on food you expect better. If we ask a question that you don’t know the answer to, then go find out. If we’d like some naan earlier in the meal than when it is normally served then offer us some. If we ask for a drink we don’t expect to have to chase it up. Food wise, the black daal was excellent, as was the salmon and the tamarind morsels to start. Dessert a bit of a waste of time.

    Superb food and excellent service. I marked it 4/5 for ambience because the seating was uncomfortable ( particularly for me and my husband sitting on a wooden bench) and also a superior food experience deserves white table cloths.

    Great service and food ! The waitress went an extra mile to accommodate our culinary needs for eg she offered samosa instead of scallops as my mum is allergic to shellfish, offered trout dish as I don't eat lamb. She explained the ingredients and the service was impeccable. The food is well presented with good combination of ingredients which you taste buds greatly enjoys.

    Going out as a family to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff made us welcome and explained the taster menu. The manager gave to a couple of us a sample of the Indian wine and a savoury beetroot square pice of cake. The staff were friendly, took time to answer our questions. We would go back and as the experience was wonderful.

    Having enjoyed several excellent meals in the past we booked to go with good friends. Unfortunately our visit was very disappointing. The background music was far too loud and not appropriate for the venue. The starters were ok, but then there was a long wait for the main courses. The Beef Xacuti lacked any of the "incredible aromas, flavours and textures" highlighted on the website; the Gongura Venison was very tough and most was left on the plate. The front of house staff were doing their best but there was obviously major problems in the kitchen as ours was not the only table with complaints. The manager offered a significant reduction off the bill to compensate but we didn't go to Hawkyns for a cheap meal. Really hope they can get their act together again so will be looking for some very positive reviews in the future.

    Really nice setting for lunch or informal dinner. Went for the 4 course taster menu, which at £29 was amazing value. The only minor niggle is to swap out lamb to beef was a £12 supplement. This seems a lot as the prices should not be that much difference. Saying that came away thinking I’d had a great lunch and would recommend without question

    Poor, forgetful service, unclean surroundings - not great. Needed to ask for side plates, needed to ask for napkins, and needed to ask for dinner plates. Mango chutney pots were half-filled and clearly left over, the outside of the pots were sticky and covered in dried spillage 1x desert at a time as the second one was forgotten. The exterior needed sweeping, seat cushions were on the floor heavily stained and there was rubbish in the bushes. 2x people dining outdoors, 3 courses, 1x bottle of wine, and 1x bottle of sparkling water -£230. Paid the bill and service as I was with a client and did not want to embarrass him by complaining. Happy to talk directly to Management.

    Have been here before and thought we’d go again for a mini celebration. When we arrived they had set table up in restaurant despite adding note to booking and then calling to tell them we were bringing a dog. Had to wait to be set up. Food was delicious but didn’t ask about allergies. Had a dessert put in front of me. I asked if it had nuts in the dish but waiter didn’t know. Turned out it did and they had to then replace it with kulfi but he had already broken the shell in front of me. Then we were handed our bill without asking if we wanted anything else, no offer of coffee. Felt like we were rushed out. Not really the experience one expects when going to such an establishment. The food was delicious though.

    We went on Fathers Day and had expected to be able to have the Fathers Day menu (there were no time restraints on the website). So we were disappointed to be told it had only been available for lunch bookings. Despite this the food was lovely and the staff we very attentive and sympathetic to our 11 month old causing chaos!
