The Crown & Thistle is a Pub & Restaurant in Rockcliffe, Cumbria

Welcome to the Crown Hotel in Hawes.

We are a traditional Yorkshire Dales country pub, with two newly-redecorated and refitted en-suite guest rooms available. We have a full restaurant, the focus being on providing honest, delicious pub fayre, that means home-made food using locally-sourced fresh ingredients.

We have three restaurant areas, all with real coal fires and free broadband WiFi access.

We are dedicated to the quality of our beers, lagers and ciders. As a CAMRA member, your landlord is proud to have the "Cask Marque" accreditation for the quality of the cask beers.

We have five cask ales always available, namely: - Theakson's Best Bitter, Theakson's Old Peculier, Theakston's Lightfoot, Theakston's XB, John Smith's Best Bitter. We also have a guest cask available, along with John Smith's Extra Smooth (a keg ale) and draught Guinness. We have excellent lagers on draught as follows: - Foster's, Heineken, Kronenbourg 1664. For cider drinkers, we have Bulmer's Strongbow and Symond's Founders Reserve.

Our prices per pint are very reasonable, ranging from 2.70 (John Smith's Best Bitter Cask), to 3.70 (Theakston's Old Peculier Cask).

Along with the thirteen draught products and soft drinks, we have six bottled ales, six bottled lagers and seven bottled ciders, along with sixty spirits, liqueurs, single-malts and bourbons.

We are family-friendly and dog-friendly.
