Stayed in Hawkshead for a week over new year. This was the first pub we went too and by the end of the week we wouldn't go anywhere else. It was warm friendly and very personable and accommodating. Showed premiership games too and the food was generally good. We did not experience any of the wait times mentioned on other reviews nor did we venture into the dining room. If your looking for an easy going friendly pub in Hawkshead then this is the one! Thanks for a great week!
