See trip advisor but in any case the whole experience was exceptional. We were celebrating a family birthday. The staff were very attentive and helpful . The menu is extensive and the food well cooked. Well done to you all and good luck with a fairly new business and new owners.

We has a lovely lunch and chose the Sunday roast which was delicious and obviously freshly prepared and presented beautifully. The staff were smart and suitably attentive. Atmosphere nice and quiet which suits us. Desert was lovely and the whole lunch really good value for money. The loyalty card is a nice touch and I will return again soon. Thank you to everyone for such a lovely lunch.

Although the service was excellent as always, I was most disappointed with the new menu...
As far as recommending, I did and this resulted in our visit on Saturday 26/10/19, 3 out of the 4 of us We’re unimpressed with the new menu...
The old menu was far better choice wise !!would definitely return myself and recommend again with old menu choices

We went on Friday evening with another couple and a child. Very friendly, efficient staff. The food was excellent, all 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Special weekday offer for 2 or 3 course made the cost very reasonable

Food was so yummy!!! And the service was amazing. The only thing was it was quiet so not much atmosphere. We went on a Sunday dinner time so would have thought it would have been busy. Will defo go back the food was so good 😋

Our second visit in a party of 5. Everything was very enjoyable, so much so we have booked a table on one of their Christmas party nights in the function room. A bit of a delay getting the food but there was a close up magician entertainment whilst you waited. There was a function on, so maybe that delayed service but the food was spot on and the delay and the entertainment added to the overall enjoyable evening

Food is excellent and great value for money. Been a few times and will continue to go regularly.

Staff are there if you need them but not constantly around bothering you.

A restaurant with a very nice atmosphere, very friendly and attentive service, good food but a fairly limited lunch menu perhaps could do with a little more imagination but overall somewhere I would return to.

Excellent service but a couple of criticisms regarding the food.
A lot fat on my piece of lamb.
Yorkshire pudding over cooked and therefore crumbled when I tried to cut it.
Vegetables excellent and pudding, chocolate Eton Mess delicious.

Great meal, attentive staff. Good choice on the menu and although there was a wedding party also booked in, the quality of the meal and service didn't suffer. Will definitely go again.

Visited on a Friday evening. Restaurant fairly quiet. Had forest mushrooms on toast for starter, followed by a smoked salmon pizza. Both tasty. Staff friendly and efficient.

Starters & puddings were lovely & portions were good. We all had lamb mains which was mostly fat & we could not eat. Would come back but not for a roast dinner it was mediocre & expensive.

100% worth a visit. Don't let the location of the golf course put you off. Great food and service, looks a bit untidy around the car park area and set back off the main road. Welcome addition to the local restaurant scene.

The place was empty,they had no record of our booking,they brought the wrong drinks,my wife's food was overlooked,her friend could not cut her chicken with a knife and fork.
The restaurant looked very nice and the staff tried hard but the whole evening was completely disappointing

Visited Hawthornes a few times now both with family & friends. Food & service is very good & excellent value & quality.
One small comment is it would be nice for drinks to be carried to the table by waiter/waitresses when moving from the waiting area to the table to eat?
