On the 7th of July 2009 their Royal Highnesses Prince Edward and Sophie Countess of Wessex opened Hathaways, our café and restaurant. Named after Dame Sibyl Hathaway, the current Seigneur’s Grandmother, the 16th century building itself is thought to have been the main house on La Rade tenement. Seigneur WT Collings converted it into a carriage house, hence the Victorian brick pillars, and in more recent times it was used as a milking parlour and stable until diary operations ceased on the farm in the 1990s. The renovation took over a year and a half and has been carefully undertaken to keep many of the original features.
Chef Andrew Tortice, previously of La Moinerie and Beau Sejour, is classically trained in the French tradition but describes his menu as being modern and eclectic with French, Italian and English influences and a hint of the oriental flavours he loves. He is also passionate about using local produce as much as possible and many of his dishes include the name of the fisherman or farmer who supplied the main ingredients. Andy serves teas, coffee, light lunches and fish and chips during the day along with delicious cream teas and offers a full restaurant menu in the evenings. (Booking recommended).
Hathaways is open every day from 10am to 10pm
