Food & Drink


NOTE: Hatchetts has now closed.


They’ve been cutting things in half for centuries.

And this Mayfair-based namesake is no different, being neatly split into two parts:


On the ground floor, laid out exactly as one would expect a Mayfair restaurant to be; with crisp white linen and polished wood furnishings. The man behind the stoves is head chef Andrew Evans (The Ivy, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Petrus, Murano and St. John) who’s put together a modern British menu with highlights including:

Starters like Kentish courgette flower, lemon ricotta and chargrilled flat white peaches; and Devonshire crab and nectarine salad with brown crab mayo, cucumber, samphire and borage.

Mains such as 12oz Shorthorn rib eye on the bone with Lyonnais potatoes and bone marrow gravy or wild sea trout, crushed jersey royals, peas and broad beans and white butter sauce.

Desserts ranging from dark chocolate marquis with milk chocolate mousse, cherry glaze and cherry sorbet; to buttermilk pudding and poached rhubarb, with rhubarb & hibiscus sorbet. That’s double cherry AND double rhubarb.


Underground, and with a distinctly louche vibe to match; here things are darker, moodier, and slightly rougher around the edges – and they have live music six nights a week. But don’t worry. We haven’t left Mayfair yet. And you can tell, because the menu is split between:

Cocktails, including house originals like the Chambord & fruit-laden Rum Forest Rum; and the brandy & cognac Hatchett Job.

Champagne cocktails, like the Classic (Moet, Hennessy, sugar); absinthe-addled Hemingway; and the whisky & mint Champagne Julep.

After which you’ll half-cut, too.
