in my opinion this is comfortably the best and friendliest pub in Hawes - unpretentious, great ale, just a proper good pub. A great place to relax, chat and drink. The McCartney Stout was in great form and decent value for this area.

One of several pubs (and ex-pubs) in a row on one side of the main street through Hawes, this one has a hotel entrance on the left and the bar entrance in the corner between the two parts of the building. Once inside there's a decent sized bar counter at the back with a pleasant seating area stretching towards the front of the pub where there's a large bay window. A group of locals were playing cards to the right of the bar, to the accompaniment of some fairly loud music and a cricket match on the TV with the sound off.

On the bar were five hand pumps with the fairly conventional Theakstons and Black Sheep augmented by three beers from Yorkshire Dales and Wensleydale breweries (see photo). I went for the Drovers Arms, a beer I've had before at the pub in nearby Askrigg which plays the part of the Drovers in a TV series (whose name escapes me). Anyway, a very pleasant dark bitter that was in excellent condition and went down a treat.
