The name is thought to be a misspelling of Hathaway.Records show that there has been an alehouse at the inn since that time, also a glass-covered well in the restaurant bar is some 35 feet deep and its pure water was once used in the brewing process. today, the well is the home of a family of gold fish.

I stayed here whilst on a business trip and will be definitely staying again. People were friendly and very cooperative and had a wonderful dinner accompanied by a lovely bottle of Sauvignon blanc and then next morning full English breakfast served in bed however there were no sausages but you couldn't fault the effort so full marks to this hotel especially in these difficult times. See you all soon

We stayed in a nearby Billesley Manor hotel and on the second night decided to venture out for dinner. Really pleased we came here. The personnel was absolutely lovely, the food was great and the pub was very cozy and lively. Would definitely come back!
