We had dinner for two at Hathaways on a summer evening after walking all day in Exmoor national park. Food was very tasty with a strong effort on presentation, with special mentions to the desserts (Tiramisu and Hathaway's mess). The restaurant has a great atmosphere, it's rather small and cosy with a very warm feeling all round.

Kasia does a wonderful job of catering to everyone, and handles everything very well: for example, the white wine we ordered wasn't available from the fridge, she was very efficient in getting a bottle from the cellar and chilling it so that we could enjoy it. Their bellini is absolutely fantastic, and for a smallish place like this, the wine list is absolutely spot on - in particular, I was pleasantly surprised to see such a selection of dessert wines and digestive liqueurs.

Overall, a great experience. The food may have missed a "spark" that would make this one of the best meals we've had, but apart from that we can only recommend the place.

Really tasty food, husband and wife team, a little on the pricey side but perfect for a special occasion. We were the only ones in there when we ate which was suprising, but didn't take away from enjoying our meal.

We came to Somerset two years ago and missed this restaurant. After reading all the reviews this evening we thought we would pay a visit. If we had time & could stand in Dunster high street or the castle grounds and tell everyone how good this restaurant is we would, the service and food are just excellent. Imagine having your own personal waitress and chef and this will give you some idea of the intimacy this restaurant offers. We would recommend this restaurant and it would be a crime not to eat here if you are staying in the area.30.07.2014

Outside almost overwhelmed by the pavement cafe next door. Inside quirky but interesting assembly of various items. Excellent menu, large portions, beautifully presented. Most important food is of high quality lovingly prepared. Would definitely go there if in the area again, indeed would detour especially to go there.

Very unassuming from the outside. A lovely atmosphere on the inside with excellent food being served.
The price was very reasonable and the portion sizes were large.
Overall an excellent evening and would definitely go again.
