In Hawes

We are blessed with a great selection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and eateries in Hawes.
From coffee and cake, lunch and dinner and of course cheese, you will be spoilt for choice.

Most are exceptionally busy all the time. It is very advisable to book evening meals well in advance and please be patient if you don’t get through the first time. Some places may ask you for a deposit or card details to reserve your table.


Caffe Curva

On the main street in Hawes just by the one way system. You cannot be disappointed with this café, we love it!
Fabulous lunches, the salads are divine and both the sweet and savoury scones are amazing. Gwen the owner is a lovely lady too.

The Wensleydale Creamery

What can we say, other than cheese and more cheese! The cafe does sell other very nice things too.

Penny Garth Café

Laburnum House

The Firebox

The Wensleydale Pantry

More than a cafe, this is the place to go if you want a roast or hearty home cooked food any day of the week. Their pudding are pretty special too. Open until around 8pm in the evening.

Pubs and Restaurants

The White Hart

This lovely pub yet has a great reputation for food and our guests are really enjoying it. We love it too! It can be best to email them via their website to make a reservation. Call 01969 667214

The Fountain

Very much a friendly local pub. They do wholesome and hearty home cooked pub classics. You can call them to book a table in the back dining room our take a chance and walk in for a seat in the bar. Call -1969 667206

The Crown

This pub has a good covered terrace at the rear as well as lots of tables at the front. It is very popular for food and from what we have seen good too. They do not always take a booking for a table of less than 4 people and suggest people just turn up but it is always worth a call to ask. Call 01969 667017

The Board Inn

Another friendly local serving hearty home cooked food. We told that the gammon, egg and chips is rather good! Call 01969 667223


Ooh we like Voujon. It has a traditional feel inside but the food is very good indeed and has been really popular with guests. We suggest you call after 5.30pm to make a reservation as they don’t tend to be there during the day. Call 01969667314

The Chippie

It’s very good! They have some basic seating inside. If you fancy an alfresco meal one evening you will find picnic benches with a great view a couple of minutes away at the rear of the car park.

Cocketts 1668

We had a lovely meal here and lots of guests have too. A great option for a special occasion. Cocketts is currently closed for personal reasons but we have heard it is opening again n Spring 2022 so best to check their website to see if they are open.They may ask you to email to make a reservation. Call 01969 667312

A little outside Hawes

The Stags Head at Simonstone Hall

The restaurant here currently has a really good reputation and good to head to for a special occasion meal.

The StoneHouse

A lovely family owned establishment with a good local reputation.

Yorebridge House in Bainbridge

We have read very good things about this place, a good special occasion choice.

The Wensleydale Heifer at East Witton

Has a great reputation although on the more expensive side.
