Middlesex’s Hatch End has one notorious former resident – the original queen of cookery herself (no, not Delia), Mrs Beeton. And the world’s first celebrity chef would undoubtedly be a fan of Hatchets, a family friendly neighbourhood restaurant where the emphasis is on good, home cooked food and welcoming service. The classic surroundings – dark wood furnishings, white linen, attractive art works and careful finishing touches such as tiny vases of fresh flowers on each table – are timeless, offering an atmosphere which suits any guest and any occasion. The spirit of Mrs Beeton clearly lives on in the kitchen of her former residence, where European and international specialities are created.
