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.

Thé staff seemed very on edge although it didn’t seem very busy. A lot of background noise of glasses been clonked aggressively on tables and some staff seemed distracted from their role. Very noisey to try and sit down for a peaceful brunch on a Sunday. Too many staff dealing with our table so a mixture of serving techniques and personalities. Food was very tasty and presented very well, just a shame it was lacking on the customer service peace which should be the priority.

The coffee is always amazing. The staff are all lovely, food is fantastic and we are always welcomed. So good with us (and sometimes the small human and the dog) Thank you

Our group had a wonderful evening and there was a really great atmosphere. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious, although a bit pricey. Overall a fantastic experience and would definitely recommend to others.

Brilliant! The setting was ideal and we felt like we are in someones home. The waitstaff were informative and we took on board their suggestions for quantity and what foods will compliment each other, they were SPOT ON. Lived it, we will be back.

No complaints but perhaps something to baffle the noise could help.
