Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I enjoyed a fabulous five course dinner here, by far the best meal I have ever had in Northampton. Every course was beautifully presented and explained by the well trained waiting staff and most importantly, delicious. It was fantastic to have seasonal ingredients like asparagus...and unusual ones like loveage. The historic setting of the beautiful billiard room at Delapre Abbey made it a very special meal.More

This was our 2nd visit to Hibiscus for the 7 course tasting menu. The food was superb and every course was delightful. The young staff provided a professional service and they went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. We are...so lucky to have such an amazing restaurant in Northsmptonshire.More

A rare event event, fine dining in Northampton. Superb food and friendly staff. This was a tasting menu and the stand outs were the carrot cappuccino and the curry hake. All others dishes were great and the wine flight accompanied each course perfectly.

We have wanted to try the hibiscus for years, and it did not disappoint! Absolutely beautiful food served like a work of art and incredible flavours in every bite. The restaurant is lovely, and the staff so welcoming and friendly and had such an extensive...knowledge about each dish. A special mention needs to go to our server, who was a young man, who explained every dish to us so professionally.. he really is a credit to the restaurant. The other girls who served us were also all so attentive and nice to. I can't wait to return for the next menu!More

A really excellent meal. Each dish had layers of flavours with a variety of textures that really brought out the complementary flavours of each ingredient. The accompanying wine flight used really imaginative pairings to complete a most enjoyable evening.

I was lucky enough to be gifted a voucher from my work and had the most wonderful experience. The food was the best I’ve ever tasted, we went for the 7 course but really had 9, the bread starter kicked it off impeccably and that’s...not even in the menu but it was incredible. We could not choose between all the courses they were all Devine. The staff were knowledgeably, friendly, kind and respectful, the atmosphere was perfect. We did not have the wine flight but the wine we did have although expensive was the best we ever tasted. I would love to do this again one day, absolutely superb. Thank you so much x I got distracted by the food and forgot to take all the photos, so i need to go back to do it again. Photos don’t do it justice I promise every bite was yum.More

Wonderful restaurant in a beautiful building. Friendly, efficient and knowledge service. Delicious food. Excellent wine including Nytimber English sparkling. This is by no means a cheap place to eat, but definitely an excellent choice for a for a special occasion. Every dish was beautifully presented...and the waiter explained how the wine flight choice paired expertly with the food. I highly recommended Hibiscus to anyone wanting special food in a special place.More

Hibiscus is a hidden gem in Northampton. The service was great and the food was incredible. The 7 course tasting menu was outstanding. To improve I would recomend better signposting. If you have yet to visit delapre abbey it can get confusing. Overall excellent evening...and we will be returning.More

One of my favourite restaurants for fine dining in Northampton. The food is always well thought out and presented beautifully. The matching wines compliment the dishes perfectly. The staff are efficient and friendly. Dietary requirements are always met. The only thing I'd recommend changing is...adding more carbs to the main course, love a good potato side dish.More
