The food, service and ambience were absolutely fabulous, as was the Assistant Manager, and our waitress. But stay away from the bar area if you are suddenly moved from your table if you want coffee . Noisy disrespectful bar staff, and incredibly inattentive to waiting customers. Completely out of step with the rest of the restaurant.

Booked for mother's day by family. Been a few times. Today was disappointing.. Was a set menu (which is normal) but when you have younger children who won't eat adult meals it takes the shine off the day. We asked for kids menu and got told NO just a set menu.. Pate.. Mushrooms . Soup.. Nothing that entertains younger pallets..... More

Called into the Hawes with several other charity walkers for some refreshments after walking from Dunfermline... Ordered couple of coffees - good selection - some wanted something stronger, not the cheapest pint of lager but went down well. Take a window seat if you can as the views are great. DONT however ask if you can pass round a collection... More

Hi there, We are happy to hear you enjoyed your refreshments with us. we would like to note however that we feel our prices are competitively set, especially as our pints, like for like, are on average 20 pence easier on the wallet than our neighbouring locales along the high street.

It has been many years since we visited the Hawes Inn, a lovely historic pub in South Queensferry. We popped in for a pint and a bite to eat and found that it had been taken over by a chain and refurbished. After looking at the menu, we decided to give it a go. Firstly, they had a small selection... More

Spent an overnight here last weekend. We were put in room 1. Ground floor. On the noisy street. We had broken light bulbs, blocked sink drain and a broken drain in the Shower which was designed for a wheelchair user, so you couldn't stand under the shower you had to sit down. We went for Breakfast on the Sunday morning... More

Hi there Nancy. We are saddened to see you did not enjoy your stay with us. We apologise profusely for the issues with your room in regards to the drain and noise issues. Unfortunately, one of the downsides of being such a historical venue, It is challenging to properly sound proof our rooms, including double glazing to cancel out the... More

Exceptional, just popped in on the off chance of getting a table. Although the restaurant was very busy the staff found a table for two in no time at all. The service was quick but not pushy quick, the food equally prompt in being served. The quality of the fish and chips was very good with all the sides you... More

Looking through the window of this tastefully decorated restaurant, on the shores of the Firth of Forth, I could see the magnificent structure of the old Forth Road Bridge. Which wasn't a bad backdrop to what proved to be a splendid lunch at the Hawes Inn, a rather classy hostelry. Five of us were enjoying a day out from Hamilton,... More
