Harden's says

Classically trained chef Joshua Hunter opened Hawthorn, an elegant neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Kew Village, in 2023, offering refined, generous, modern European dining using predominantly British seasonal ingredients.

survey result


* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“A very worthy successor to the beloved Glasshouse (RIP)” – this new Kew favourite is co-owned by its predecessor’s former manager, Patra Panas. Service is particularly “well-drilled and friendly”; and regulars are “delighted to find that little has changed” after a “seamless” changeover, with “many of the furnishings still in place” in the agreeable (a few feel, “slightly uninspiring”) dining room. Diners dispute whether the “intelligent and carefully crafted” cuisine, from chef and co-owner Josh Hunter, is a step up or down from before, but practically all agree it’s “very competent”, and say “we shall definitely return and recommend it highly!”

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"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 "
