Owner description: The Beer Hall is the Hawkshead Brewery tap, but within it are many things: visitors' centre, specialist international beer shop, function room, conference room and The Beer Kitchen providing the perfect food to complement the beer - our "Beer Tapas." The Beer Hall is a showcase for real ale and has a Cask Marque award for serving “the perfect pint”.

we went today on a tour for my hubby's Birthday , we've been on a lot of these type of tours , not just in this country but in Europe as well .
it was very informative But also very loud so we struggled to hear what our guide was saying !
there wasn't a lot to see and the dvd we saw before going in told us more than what there was to see
the pub side was very well appointed and the staff very friendly and helpful
you get 2 half pints each to sample , but as having to drive a long way home and myself on medication they let us bring a bottle each home instead , which was a great gesture as many of these tours wouldn't allow this
if your up that way and like beer it's worth a visit

What a result finding this Brewery and bar tucked away on a trading estate! After a long walk and ready for refreshments we called here in the early afternoon. We all had their local beers and several plates of tapas which were superb - I can't wait to call again and order the plaice goujons, the ribs and the sweetcorn and coriander fritters! The staff were patient and helpful as we made our choices and we all agreed that the beers were excellent.

Despite its setting on an industrial estate the brewery and tap is very light and airy with plenty of comfortable seating, full range of their beers on draught and plenty in bottles to take away including gift packs. Also has a restaurant, very nice helpful ladies behind the bar, just wish I'd had a driver would have stayed all day!

The range of beer is superb and the quality is up there with the best. The food is equally good, be it the English tapas or the fantastic Sunday roast. The third wonder of Hawkshead is the staff, always cheery and helpful. Worth five stars plus.

What a great place, the mill yard is a brilliant mixture of small shops,cafes and businesses in Staveley. The brewery reminds me of micro breweries in the US and Canada, open plan, wooden seating, brewing tanks behind glass, extensive choice of great beers, laid back feeling, robust beer tapas. We had huntsman pie, plaice goujons, ribs. All chunky great quality snacks. Well worth a visit.
