About the employer

The Falcon at Hatton has been operating as a destination foodie venue since 2014. We are located between Solihull and Warwick on the A4177, Birmingham Road. With a rustic country bar, cosy corners and rustic but with modern twist restaurants, you’ll be sure a warm welcome. We’re independent… not part of a chain so what we offer is truly unique with a focus on superb fresh produce and genuinely friendly and efficient service.

Whether you want to grab breakfast on the go, join us for a spot of lunch, dine à la carte with your loved one or join us for a family feast and our famous Sunday Lunch, you’ll find us a bustling hot spot most days and with good reason.

At The Falcon at Hatton, we take great pride and care when creating our menu –  following our core philosophy of “cooked with care and served with pride”. We create each dish and their components with fresh produce at its heart. We don’t use frozen vegetables; we only use fish which is either fresh from market or frozen at sea and our meats come from cattle and other livestock which have grazed green pastures and our poultry have been allowed to run free. In doing so, we support many local and UK producers, farmers and suppliers. We use biodegradable cleaning chemicals, we sort and recycle around 80% of our waste and our used oil is collected, cleaned and converted into biofuel. We don’t work with just anyone, we look for the highest accreditations, full traceability and sustainability so that we don’t harm our precious environment.
