Service good and friendly,the landlord chatty and rugby minded. The food was fine ,we had the Sunday lunch which covered our needs and light bites that we now find ample for our needs. We had the beef but there was a good fish alternative. Apple pie ok and a refreshing sorbet. Atmosphere fine and friendly with obviously many regulars returning,... More

It was just by chance we found this lovely pub on our holidays. The food was fabulous and the service was attentive and pleasant. We were allowed to take our dog in and so we were happy.

Had a meal here on Saturday night and really enjoyed it. Its a small friendly pub, and the food we had was excellent. I had one of the best steaks I've eaten in ages and my wife had the sea bass fillets, It was well cooked and clearly freshly prepared. No frills but good honest value for money. I recommend... More

We had dinner here on a Friday evening but there was plenty of room with only two other groups of diners but that may have been because we dined early. There were plenty of choices on the menu and a good specials board. The food was excellent and was well presented as well as tasting delicious. I was pleasantly surprised... More

Yes, it's always a pleasure to visit The Old Inn at Hawkchurch. Very friendly, nothing is too much trouble, always good service with a smile. Delightful courtyard to sit in on warm sunny days, or inside for a lovely old English bar /restaurant. Beautifully kept inside and out. Good quality food well presented.

One of our favourite pubs to have lunch when in the area ,food is always of a very good quality and very good value for money. On our last visit we both decided to go with the specials ( a little more pricey ) and we were blown away by the quality, quantity, and freshness of the fish, well worth... More

Despite arriving with a party of 5 and no booking on a Friday evening, the landlord seated us immediately (rearranging furniture to make room for the wheelchair user in our group). Even though the place was busy, service was excellent and attentive without being obtrusive. Food was well above the normal standard one might expect from a pub and particular... More

The food was delicious on both nights (the risotto was gorgeous). Good choice of menu to keep everyone happy. Staff really friendly especially Paul & Jean the owners. Dog friendly which is nice as some... More
