Experiences

  • Hawthorn Wine Club

    Multiple dates available
    'Hawthorn wine club' is a relaxed and informal dining experience, where our restaurant uses the opportunity to offer some exceptional wines at an affordable price point. We will highlight a number of standout wines on our list and offer an a la carte menu of individually priced bistro style dishes such as onglet of beef with peppercorn sauce, sliced mortadella with grilled white asparagus or Cassoulet fennel sausages with haricot beans. Expect delicious desserts such as sauternes marinated apricot and almond tart, or a Valrhona chocolate brownie with Madagascan vanilla ice cream.' With tables available from 5pm to 8pm every Wednesday night we hope you will come to enjoy one of these evenings with us.

    Wonderful food in a lovely atmosphere with terrific service. The dishes are complex without being the least bit weird. The flavors are uniformly appealing and the garnishes really complement the other ingredients. Well worth the trip to kew gardens.

    Superb cuisine which continues to delight on each visit. I love knowing I can introduce friends to this experience. Chef Josh Hunter always gives a warm welcome despite having his hands full in the kitchen, The dishes are creatively designed revealing stunning, interesting flavour combinations. A*

    Booked for wine club and really enjoyed all the wines - bistro food was very food and overall excellent value for money. Lovely sunny evening meant front doors wide open which added to the ambience. We had a terrific evening!

    Came here to celebrate with my girlfriend and had one of the best meals we’d ever had. The quality of the food was impeccable and for very reasonable value considering what you get. The service was warm and prompt but not intrusive and the area around Kew was lovely to explore afterwards. Would highly recommend a visit! Will be returning.

    Hawthorn was an enjoyable dining experience but neither the food nor the service achieved top marks. There is better quality to be had in London at this price point.

    Writing as a Kew local, Wednesday Wine Club is a really welcome innovation as it should bring Hawthorn back into a more everyday affordability range. However the bill still came to just over £100/head (including aperitifs, wine with mains and digestifs & coffee, but no dessert) so ultimately you haven't transformed the value proposition in quite the way we hoped. Emphasis on English wines was both interesting and educative. The team were very welcoming and friendly with a nice line in humour, making for a more informal and friendly vibe than we have experienced on previous visits. We will return but this will have to remain a once every few months treat rather than anything more regular
