The two young ladies behind the bar were welcoming and they served me the best pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord I’ve ever had. A nice old-fashioned feeling pub with a bit of character. Thankfully we still have a few days of holiday left, so unlike one of the most recent obnoxious reviews; we will be back.
We were really looking forward to our first visit to Hawes and trying local beers. Whilst being drinking for a few years and my presentation it reflective of CAMRA and I like a beer flat no head no froth. Bit like how people like steak, well done to rare, and those who are vegetarians. I went in to The Board Inn and was greeted by a very nice an engaging lady behind the bar, I asked for a pint of flat Landlord, whilst she was surprised served it as I confirmed that was my preference. At that point and arrogant person sitting said fairly loudly ‘she’s the only one who will serve it like that’. I explained personal choice as above. I gathered he was the landlord, and having read previous posts, gather its not the first time he was rude, arrogant. I went for a second pint to be told by the lady he had instructed her to not serve me. First time I have ever been refused to be served in a pub. I think our landlord Colin is past he sell by date, understanding Service - Are you selling me what you sell or what I want to buy! His name is Colin, and for football fans they know a ‘Colin’. Interesting he couldn’t serve tomato juice as they hadn’t got any!! I’m not going to do an Arnold Schwarzenegger "I'll be back" because I wont be back…
We have stayed here before & yet again everything was fantastic. So friendly & helpful. Very clean rooms...Covid safe Everything you would need for a short stay. Breakfast was delicious. Local produce & cooked perfectly. Food in the bar is very tasty & plentiful. Good choice as-well. Thank you again for a memorable stay. See you soon.
Popped in for quick bite to eat while visiting Hawes Service was really good, everyone super friendly Ordered at the bar, prices were reasonable Really didn’t wait long at all Food was awesome Hubby had steak pie and chips, I had farmers platter Will definitely go back next time we visit
Arrived for a well earned short break and could not fault anything about the Board Inn. Everyone was so friendly and all the current rules regarding Covid were explained when we arrived. The room was spotless with enough of everything for our stay. Breakfast was delicious with a very good choice for all tastes. Will definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone thinking of staying in Gods own county.
