We are two couples booked for two nights via a Living Social Deal staying 21st / 22nd May 2013. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Our first contact was with Heather who cleans the Hawk & Buckle Inn and also serves breakfast in the mornings. She pointed us in the direction of the bar where we met the owner Rod and his wife Helen. Rod booked us in and took us to our rooms. The Hawk & Buckle is a quaint ole 17 century coach house which has a lot of the original features in place, and oozes character. We had paid an upgrade to the deal and stayed in Room 8 which was out of this world. It had a double jaccuzi, a six foot bed, double sofa, tv and typically ole worthy style furniture. It was absolutely lovely. Our friends stayed in Room 11 which had ole worthy style furniture and a single jaccuzi with a large leather chair and tv. We had a 2 course evening meal provided on the first night consisting of a menu choice of about 5 different starters and mains or you could opt for a main and dessert. You couldnt complain, if you actually sat down and worked out the cost of a welsh breakfast and a 2 course evening meal, you were practically staying in your room for free. On the 2nd night we opted to eat there and we were not disappointed. Bruce the chef rustled up some fantastic food, 2 of us had Melted Cheese Mushrooms for a starter, 2 had Duck with Hoisin Sauce, Mains Hawk Burger, Lamp Chomp, Rump Steak and Sirloin Steak, with wonderful home made onion rings which were to die for. My husband and I chose not to have a dessert but our friends had Belguim Waffles with Ice Cream and Toffee Sauce and they said it was perfect. This is one of the best short breaks away we have ever had in a long time. Having a recent tough year after nursing and losing my beloved father in January, the family and staff at the Hawk & Buckle made our stay one of the most memorable. Thank you so much Rod for your wonderful wit, (We are heading for that open top bus ride when the weather improves, but in the mean time we will settle for some home made vegetable soup!!! ha! ha!) Helen for being the hostess with the mostess, Bruce for the most splendid food and last but not least Heather (hired staff) whose personal demenor is pleasantly cordial and friendly and who sings as she goes about her duties. Heather I have changed my ring tone from a door bell, knowing not to leave it in my room while you are cleaning and going to answer the front door three times, that made me chuckle. Thank you once again to all of you for making our stay so lovely. Wonderful people, wonderful food, and wonderful hostilary skills, but will have to wait until a bit later in the year to come and stay again post Denbighshire Eisteddfod with the BBC fully booking your entire premises.
Room 8 best room in the house with double jaccuzi, and room 11 lovely ole worthy rooms
