New management since April 2010 in this quirky country pub has certainly turned things around. The place is buzzing once more and the food is superb. Set just off the Hangers Way, at least seven beautifully kept local real ales, local ciders and perry await the thirsty traveller. Real fires in the winter and a large garden in the summer allow you to select the atmosphere of your choice. No musak but live acoustic music every Thursday night. Five stunning bedrooms are available for those who can't be bothered to go home just yet. A real ale festival in June (our 22nd in 2011) just adds the final touch. Come on back to the Hawkley, it's how you wanted it.
