About Hayes Common
We are a neighbourhood eatery offering creative robust food, craft beer, carefully selected wine and great coffee.
It’s a place to start your day with a leisurely breakfast and coffee by Atomic Coffee Roasters; enjoy lunch overlooking the river; drop into for a bite and a beer in the afternoon; or linger for the evening over dinner with friends.... we are your home away from home!
We love good honest flavours and seasonal food - our menu is updated with the seasons making use of our kitchen garden to supplement where possible and we use local suppliers where we can. All of our meats and eggs are free-range to ensure the best quality and flavour.
Amazing food, atmosphere, and setting. Eaten here multiple times and am yet to be disappointed
Really enjoyed the food and friendly staff
Great meal enjoyed by all. Only issue seats are very hard😉
Thank you so much for such a lovely afternoon. The food, service and atmosphere was wonderful Thanks so much Rachel Williams
Lovely food and lovely staff! You all catered to the extra bits and bobs we bought in and made the whole thing a breeze! Will definitely be back :) THANK YOU
Excellent service. We had a great time.
Fantastic experience as always.
Have a fabulous evening! Food was great. Staff were fantastic. Looking forward to coming back
I enjoy the neighbourhood setting and the lovely staff. I love the decor and the fact it can be my coffee shop or my venue for a drink with friends not to mention the great menu.Well done.
Your kids menu is great because of the healthy veggie sticks & fruit option. The free jugs of sparkling water is a really nice touch :-). My fish (hapuka) was well cooked but have to say the accompanying vegetables were pretty tasteless, and the soy sauce was a bit overpowering. My husband also did not find his curry as tasty as curry should be and why no rice with it?.
We had a very long lunch and even though the restaurant was busy we were never pressured to leave or buy more drinks. It was really good to feel so welcome for so long.
We had an excellent evening. The atmosphere was relaxing and funky. The food fresh and delicious. I had complex dietary needs which were dealt with easily and professionally. It is difficult for me to dine out but Hayes Comman made it easy and uncomplicated for me. The staff were friendly and provided excellent service right from taking the booking to the dining experience, We will definitely return and can highly recommend it.
We always enjoy Hayes Common for lunch. It has a nice atmosphere, the food is good and the service excellent
Great evening in a lovely relaxed setting
Delicious food and excellent service
The food and presentation is really good, apart from the nourish Bowl which is absolutely tasteless and boring to eat!!! The service today was very very average!
Always great service and the food is top notch. My new favourite place to be. I particularly enjoy the non-alcoholic drink options, seedlip feels like a great 'adult' drink without the alcohol.
I brought my irish friend here who has travelled throughout New Zealand eating at some rather fancy restaurants. She said this would be the best meal she has eaten in NZ, I certainly will be back sooner rather than later.
awesome food awesome wine list awesome staff absolutely awesome place
Lovely lunch in a lovely space. The flowers were also very beautiful .
It was great. Fried chicken was a hit!
Love the Guy in Charge last night!! He was delightful!
Lovely time celebrating my daughter’s 15th birthday. Great food, excellent service. Thanks so much
Sterling service and food. Can’t wait to come back.
Very nice atmosphere, excellent food, pleasant music (not too loud, as often elsewhere), very helpful staff. Must go in Hamilton!
