“below average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Four of us went to The Hatch for a birthday celebration - a treat from our daughter. During the length of the meal we had 4 different waiting staff, one of which was adamant that the Cod and Chips meal was in fact Alaskan Pollock. Despite showing her the menu she went away grumbling. Also, ar 5:30 pm we were given 3 lunch-time menus (which ended at 4pm) and 1 evening menu. When my husband pointed this out the the waiter argues and then agreed with him about which was the relevant menu. We've enjoyed visiting 2 other restaurants owned by this group in our area and will patronise them in the future.

“Fantastic new seasonal menu with tempting specials”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The new seasonal menu is fantastic with some very tempting specials. The food was delicious and the new patterned china it was served on made a nice change. Our waitress was very friendly and welcoming and very attentive. I have never had a bad meal here and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Even when the place is busy and they are rushed off their feet they are always smiling and happy to help.
