Ate at Hooked last night for my Mums 92nd birthday. The staff were friendly and attentive. Very nice calming decor. Spotless white tablecloths and serviettes, not a mark on anything.... I do like cleanliness! The food was...well...superb. The fish and chips special had the crispier lightest batter I've ever tasted. My dish, red mullet with sweet potato chips, black pudding, chorizo, tarragon, was a revelation. Wasn't sure how those flavours would work together but it was gorgeous. The sweets were also lovely and tasty.
Can recommend Hooked unreservedly.

Having visited hooked now on several occasions since it opened, it seems to have achieved one of the most difficult challenges for restaurants – consistency.
Creating an interesting menu, cooking good food and serving with charm is what makes eating out a great joy. Most places can get one or two of these factors right most of the time and a few can do all three occasionally but very few achieve this level of dependably. So far, Hooked has failed to let me down and, having just read the new winter menu posted in their window, I am looking forward to our next visit in a week or so. There are some really interesting dishes including winter black truffle macaroni and a tartiflette which sound intriguing and I can’t wait to try them. This one of the few places outside of Italy where the veggie options sound as appealing as those for omnivores. However there are also the classic rib eye steak and steak and ale pie, which will be difficult to leave out. That said, one of the new fish dishes is red mullet with sweet potato chips, grilled chorizo, black pudding and tarragon butter sauce, which demands to be tasted. Nice dilemma though! Prices also reflect the quieter time of the year and therefore look good value at this quality.
