We fancied something classier amongst the excellent choice of eateries in Dunster. We weren't disappointed. With just 16 covers, the food is personally cooked by Sandro, (il capocuoco) and the receptionist, hostess, waitress and patissiere is Kasia (sua moglie). Both the courses we had were presented brilliantly and cooked to perfection. The best meal we have eaten in ages. If... More

If we could award Hathaways more than five we would have done. A small intimate restaurant with supreme ambience. Food and service is out of this World. Fully recommended!

We spent a wonderful evening at Hathaways. The restaurant is unique in that it felt like eating in someone's home. There were only a few tables and it was quiet, cosy and old-fashioned with a beautiful open fireplace. I personally feel reassured when I see a limited menu as I believe that it is better to offer a few dishes... More

I consider this is one of the best place to eat in Dunster, and we eat out a lot. Service is excellent and the food beautifully cooked. As its very much a husband and wife team the menu is not large but an excellent range with a comprehensive wine list. Highly recommended.

Restaurant serves a limited menu but do not let this put you off as you won't be disappointed Food is exceptional and presented beautifully. It's sometimes better to eat in small family run restaurants as the owners are passionate about the food they offer to the guests. Front of house service was friendly and was happy to offer advice on... More

I hope I'm not being unfair with my appraisal here. It is a small restaurant with presumably a small kitchen staff but the one problem I have with daily menu restaurants is when there isn't a huge amount I would choose. With around 4 options for starter and main course there was only one option I liked for my first... More
