Booking went well and we had a nice quiet table for two just as we requested. Service was very friendly, atmosphere relaxed. Food was excellent!

Would recommend for lunch, as I have enjoyed the lunch menu several times. Dinner on Saturday was poor, though. Staff were fine, ambience good, starters were nice. However, the pork belly was really poor and vegetables tasteless. The duck was a bit better

The Hawk Inn provided an excellent meeting place for a lunch and across our group of 7 everyone enjoyed the meal and the outstanding service provided. I definitely recommend the Hawk to friends and colleges.

We had a very pleasant evening. The menu was varied with plenty of choice. The Food was tasty and well presented. Staff were attentive and we didn’t have long to wait for our food, even though we didn’t have a starter. The Bakewell tart was delicious and the coffee served finished off well a lovely evening. We will return.

Lovely Sunday evening dinner during that strange time between Christmas and New Year. The pub was busy but not packed, the staff showed us to our table took our drinks order and left us some menus.

The roast beef was enormous, and all our meals arrived promptly.

The only disappointment was the wine we ordered was not currently offered by the supplier. Other than that we had a lovely relaxed evening with friends.

A most enjoyable lunch where quality and presentation of the food was to a high standard. Did not like 10% service charge being automatically added to the bill. Certainly will return.

The atmosphere is always good and the food is as it says on the tin - not fussy. Would be nice to see some new things on the menu occasionally, and service at the table always seems to be a weak point.

The pub was recommended by friends in the area. 5 of us had an excellent meal there. The only small comment would be that the waitress did not seem to know which or anything about the gins you served, which in the current climate of artisan gins would seem reasonably important!

Pleasant environment and service were good. Menu drifting toward standard pub fare rather than exciting or adventurous but that could reflect the nature of the customers

Very easy booking process. In a nice quiet area of pub. Food was good, but disappointed by slow service. we went looking for staff to say we were ready to order, Perhaps not enough staff for a busy Saturday night? nice menu with enough choice. a bit disappointed with the brownie & pecan tart dessert.

A very pleasant but nevertheless busy pub.
As this was our first visit on a Sunday lunch time we were glad we booked the table.
Service was good until the waiter asked if we wanted the dessert menu, which never arrived in a reasonable time so we left without having dessert.

We visited during a busy Sunday lunchtime and were shown to a corner table in a cramped dining area. Firstly the room was very cramped and I feel extra tables were put in to accommodate more diners, this resulted in a very loud table of guests and the feeling that staff were too busy and run off their feet to even worry about taking orders let alone serve food and drinks. The food was not great either - poor roast potatoes and a selection of vegetables that had been left warming for way too long hence them being dry and unpleasant. We will not be returning to Sunday lunch again!

We came for my father's 82nd birthday and were not warned that the rugby would be shown, very loudly on wide screen tv, very near where we were sitting. My father couldn't hear the conversation at all and it somewhat ruined the great service, lovely food and a lovely occasion.

We booked a meal for two for our wedding anniversary.
We had to ask for our shared starter, as it had not arrived after an hour of ordering it.
It appeared that our order had not been sent to the kitchen.
The waiter gave us a free drink each as an apology.
We also received complimentary desserts, as again, we were forgotten.
We appreciated the gesture, but the restaurant wasn’t busy enough to warrant the mistakes made.
Beautiful pub though.

You know it’s a good pub when the doggy visitors are given a warmer welcome than the humans.
And the food was superb too!

Not as good as our first visit. Ordered ribeye and was told they only had sirloin. Peppercorn sauce tasted like gravy and was replaced by exactly the same sauce when raised.
When bill arrived, we were charged for ribeye steak. When queried, got told sirloin was more expensive. Funny as they didn’t even offer sirloin on the menu, so unable to compare??? Genuinely didn’t feel the size of the sirloin we received was worth £22.
I appreciate it’s a family pub and I am a parent myself, but noisy toddlers running around at 9:30pm on a Saturday night, not what I expect or want.

We had a bit of a drive out to the Hawk but it was worth it. Greeted by friendly staff and shown to our table. Nice area at the back of the bar although you may want to ask to be in the separate room if you wanted a quiet meal. Food was very good quality and nicely presented. Overall we really liked it !

Went here with my adult son. He had the calves liver and I had the halibut. Absolutely gorgeous food. Good selection of gin and alcohol free beer. Service very good although it did take a long time for the food to come out but that's the deal when meals are prepared fresh. Desserts didn't tempt us.
