First ever visit on Saturday 16th April, late afternoon. My wife and I received a warm welcome from the well-spoken (presumed) landlord and a truly excellent selection of real ales (I had the Batemans XXXB which was superb).

The three or four interconnecting high-ceilinged rooms have the feel of a Victorian town pub, and the huge moose head is a talking point. We only stopped for one drink but hope to return soon.

Approaching Hawkley from the west via steep narrow lanes through several deep valleys is an experience for anyone keen on wild garlic, which grows in great profusion hereabouts at this time of year.
Upon several recent visits to the Hawkley Inn I have watched the new managers fail to rise to the challenge and turn what used to be a bustling country pub into a morgue. The words 'dull' and 'lifeless' were used by the friends I took to introduce to my 'great local'. The managers are rude, unwelcoming and very ill-advised when it comes to running a pub. It is obvious they are drowning and this is reinforced through their poorly managed staff team.

The selection of beer remains good as it has over the past years, but unfortunately this is no where near enough to compensate for the other mishaps.
