Hawthorn Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Brilliant food as the chef-owner leads from the front (he seems to be doing everything). This landmark location deserves to thrive and the current regime is certainly maintaining excellent standards "
"Unlike other reviewers, I preferred Glasshouse."
"Lovely replacement for the well loved Glasshouse. Wine list was very affordable and both bottles we tried were excellent. A big shout out for the black pudding, heavenly!"
"Excellent food and great sommelier. Attentive service and all at a somewhat reasonable price. Ambience is a bit quiet but classy"
"Some superb cooking at this newly open restaurant next to Kew station. Well balanced menu with innovative suggestions to cope with any allergies. Wine list has some great options by glass and set dinner menu at £65 is a bargain. Worth a visit now before prices rise once they get the deserved Michelin star next year"
"The successor to The Glasshouse has a tough act to follow but has triumphed. Delicate flavours like Artichoke or cauliflower find bedfellows with sake or cuttlefish. I had the cuttlefish and nduja ragout followed by Iberian pork with a wonderful variation on affogato with a crispy chocolate base to finish. Excellent choice of wines by the glass. "
"Delicious food, lovely staff. How lucky are the people of Kew to have such a great successor to the Glasshouse."
"Lovely iteration of the Glasshouse. Eclectic interesting menu which is well executed. Excellent service. For a new restaurant it feels established."
