Picked this pub so we could have a drink before going to bed on an evening. Woman serving with blonde hair was tutting, looking at watch, huffing and puffing walking past constantly, putting stools up around us at quarter to 11. I'd be so mad if I employed someone who treated customers like this! Or if it is your pub...

Visited here on a number of occasions as part of a night out. It's always a friendly place to have a drink and a meal. The local beers are well worth a try as they are excellent. I've eaten here on a number of occasions and there's an excellent choice of meals which are good value. WiFi and tvs. Great...

I had a lovely time, stayed for four nights. It was a proper treat, fabulous breakfasts, nice room, very tastefully decorated. Overlooking the street not the valley but hey ho, you don't spend that long gazing out of the window. Quite good attention to detail - there's a fridge which I always appreciate. A mattress topper and lovely quality bedding...

We were only in the hotel for a meal, but there were fifteen of us. The food was varied for all who were eating, and it was hot, well presented, and served in a friendly manner. Would call again when we are in the area.

This place offers a fair selection on its menu - not huge but a reasonable enough choice. Very good value pub food served piping hot by nice staff and plenty of it. Every eating establishment in Hawes is always busy these days and this is no exception but as well as the front pub area it has an extensive back...

Given the town centre location, I was surprised that this hotel was so cheap. Was there a catch? None that I could find! Check in was swift, but the interior was like a maze. The room was very slightly run down, but was comfortable, with a bath in the ensuite. I had a view of the main Street, but it...

Stayed for two nights over spring bank holiday. On the first afternoon/night ended up staying the bar watching football on to. The real ales were kept to perfection, especially enjoyed the Wensleydale pale ale. 2nd night had a lovely steak & ale pie. Hotel has a great location in the centre of Hawes giving easy access to the rest of...
