Great food, good ambience, good friendly service. Sunday lunch was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
We had a lovely lunch at Hadley House. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the outside play space. The service was attentive but not in your face and the food was delicious. I’ll definitely be back. Thank you
Service food and atmosphere was really nice. Brownie for dessert was terrific. Will visit again
Food was absolutely delicious. Service was great and doing their best to be quick and efficient. It looked a bit that you were understaffed.
So my partner and I moved to the area over a year ago and have tried many bars and restaurants in the area. The ‘bar and restaurant’ sign outside Hadley House had actually put us off going here as it makes the place look cheap and tacky (in our opinion that sign should go). You can’t really see inside when you walk past either and it is not clear what kind of place this is. However curiosity got the better of us and we booked a table for Saturday night. When going onto their website I was surprised to see it advertising itself as a fine dining restaurant. I would never have thought. Before attending the restaurant my partner walked past the place in the day and saw a sign outside advertising a DJ. Is it a fine dining restaurant or a pub/club??? To be fair we love both so it didn’t put us off. Our booking was early. When we arrived we were very surprised with the decor. It was beautiful!! The place was empty. The food was nice. Some better than others. I ordered the pate for start which was nice except for the chutney. It wasn’t a chutney, just a piece of fruit put in a bowl. I had to cut it up myself just so I could eat it with the pate. My partner had the salted beef which he said was nice but a bit too much mayo. For main my partner had the confit duck which was amazing and I had the sea bass which was nice but needed a sauce or something to accompany it as was a bit of a dry dish. Deserts were nice. The service was excellent and even though we were the only people there we were not bothered too much. The manager was very nice and made himself known. He made us feel welcome. Throughout the evening we were reminded a few times that there was a DJ on at 9pm and we said we’d stay and give it a go. After our meal we moved into a sofa area. A few more people had come in to eat or kid to drink although still quiet. If I’m honest the DJ was a little disappointing. For the first half hour I didn’t recognise any of the music then later every other song was something I knew but they were a bit random. The DJ looked bored. At around 10.30 we left and went to a nearby pub. I’ve given this place four stars because I actually loved it but I have no idea what it is. Is it a fine dining restaurant? Is it a bar? Is it a club? A family with two kids came for dinner later in the evening and I don’t think they were expecting a DJ to go with their nice meal. If the DJ played modern pop music we would have stayed but it was too quiet and the music wasn’t good enough. Also the DJ wasn’t well advertised in the area. Finally this place isn’t very welcoming from the outside. My partner and I would never have walked in there on a night out as it seems so closed off. We now know that you can just walk in and we will definitely come in for a drink or two in the future. We would also come back to eat. It just needs to work out what it wants to be and advertise itself to High Barnet.
Excellent food, service, ambience, background music and staff. This is a very well organised and run restaurant. We have been here four times now in the last year and will keep coming back. Thank you everyone at Hadley House. It was my 66th Birthday today and my Sea Bass was cooked to perfection. My wife had the Lamb Shank and thoroughly enjoyed her meal too. See you again soon, Mr & Mrs J & D Richardson
Fantastic place to eat. Really nice atmosphere, really good, tasty, quality food. Very friendly and helpful staff. The service was fast and efficient. The surroundings are really pleasant, modern and bright. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. It has a very good atmosphere. The food was certainly of good quality. Fresh and served hot. Also a good selection of drinks from the bar.
Very attractive décor and pleasant surroundings were let down by average food quality and value for money. My Sunday roast lunch of roast beef consisted of one average sized slice of over cooked meat with a large piece of fat attached, four small roast potatoes, one small Yorkshire pudding and a garnish of carrots and broccoli. Although this meal included a pint of lager, it was still poor value. It could be a great venue but changes to the food quality and quantity need to be addressed. The service was generally very good.
I had a lovely afternoon in Hadley House. The food was delicious. Unlimited prosecco too. Will definitely return. Service was good. I need to try out their happy hour.
The visit overall was disappointing and with hindsight would never have booked to eat there. The service was poor due to a party booking. Which was slightly concerning when the guest of said party kept asking me to assist them. The team did not work together therefore we witnessed them fighting. Not the best experince.
