The meat was tough ,the chair was broken,service average .the only reason I give it 2 stars is because it does have a good atmosphere on music nights .

Called in by chance when we were searching for somewhere to eat on a cold January evening. The staff were friendly. A large menu - mainly curries but other food also on the menu. A little pricy for a curry but we both enjoyed our meals.

The pub has lots of atmosphere on a Saturday. Great music and a popular meeting place for locals and visitors alike. Squeezing past room in the bar. We visited in a large group for a meal and the service was good but the food mediocre. Maybe our expectations were too high as we were told that this was the place... More

Lovely tasty carvery here, we had roast beef & Yorkshire pudding, plenty of veg & roast potatoes & gravy, yummy. We came here Sunday after the carnival, we didn't book as it's quiet a big pub & plenty of tables. The guy behind the bar was really nice & let my husband try the beer before buying. Easy pub to...

Visited for a friends wedding. Yes, I know the food was pre ordered but it was magnificent, piping hot and all served at once....quite a feat! Starters were huge and ( in my case) left little room for the wonderful curry and all the trimmings! Dessert didn't disappoint either!! The room we stayed was very good also. Very comfy bed,...

Excellent evening starting with curry buffet (only £10) which was so delicious. Had  Beef Rendang (Indonesian) which had very tender beef, not too hot but with sufficient bite. Some veg curry as well which was hotter. (Picture attached) Was fortunate enough to be there on a evening private event with live bands which was enjoyable and popular.

I've eaten in Hawthorns on 3 occasions now and I've decided I like it and it will be a regular haunt when I visit Glastonbury (which is usually twice a year). Last weekend I had the goats cheese and mushroom burger which was really delicious. Nice wine, good atmos. There was a mellow jazz band playing in the other room... More

OMG! Terrible food, terrible service, terrible music, just terrible. We had close family visiting us in Glastonbury for the weekend and we wanted to take them out for a great meal. Sadly Gigi"s was closed, so I booked the Hawthorns. We arrived on time but we had to wait over half an hour to give our order. Then another 40... More

We arrived at 730pm to eat. We had prebooked for 730pm. Yes we were on time. We were seated and given menus. The specials board was pointed out to us where they boasted of the highly experienced curry chef who had won some such award...best pub curry of the year? We all browsed the menu and on top of starters... More
