“Excellent”
Reviewed 23 July 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.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

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.

“Wonderful night at Hathaways”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We chose Hathaways for our night in Dunster purely on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and yes they were spot on.

It's a tiny restaurant with decor that can only be described as quirky. I personally liked it although the cluttered and eclectic collection of items from Somerset, Italy and beyond might not be for everyone.

The wine list was a treat with some excellent bottles on offer, I opted for a rally nice Sancerre from their top cellar collection. The menu was £25 for three courses which was outstanding value. There were 5 starters, 6 mains and 6 deserts to pick from. We both opted for goats cheese on bruschetta to start with which was unusually matched with melon and summer fruits. For main we had a sea bass and beetroot risotto with a tiramisu and mess to finish. The menu also had a nice range of appetizers and desert wines. We polished off all courses and can honestly say the food was stunning, it was a real pleasure to eat at Hathaways and we'd both love to return if we are even remotely in the area again.

The service was attentive without being intrusive and was pretty much perfect. There were four other tables that left while we were there and they were all gushing about the food. Our bill including 3 courses, appetiser, bottle of wine and two liquors was £100.

If you are visiting Dunster book yourself a table, you won't regret it.

“Just Over the Road for Dinner”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Good welcoming greeting to this intimate restaurant. A bottle of wine on the table to tempt £19.95 which we went ahead with, goats cheese with dressings and soup to start, followed by excellent sea bass (I have managed to get my wife to resume eating this wonderful fish after she swallowed a 4cm bone and spent two nights in a local hospital to retrieve from the base of her tongue,thanks to Tesco's filleting) the fish was bone free here and excellent! Coffee good, friendly little place.
