We ate here again with friends recently and the service is still second to none. Bob and Lesley run a very well organised hotel and restaurant and always welcome you with genuine warmth and hospitality.
Cockett's chef has cooked here for 25 years and the food is always superb.
We have stayed in the hotel many times before and now stay with friends locally but we always return to the restaurant and we strongly recommend that you eat / stay here if visiting Hawes - you won't be dissappointed.

We had been told that this is one of the best restaurants in Hawes, and so it proved. A formal dining room with good friendly service, a varied menu to choose from, and the food was excellent. My rack of lamb was delicious, and my three guests all enjoyed their dishes which came from the daily specials. Cheesecake to follow (mine was described as creme brulee, although the topping wasn't crisp) and we also ordered one cheeseboard to go with our coffee. Total price for four: just under £80 plus drinks. Very good value.

Stayed at this little gem of a place with family and friends, and would rate it 6 Stars if I could. Family run, lovely service, and comfortable, well equipped rooms. The food was top notch and not overly pricey. Located right in the heart of the beautiful Hawes village, if you're visiting Yorkshire, Cockett's is a must. Would recommend for families, friends, or couples.

Just enjoyed a super weekend spent in Hawes at Cocketts hotel. Lovely room ( deluxe) fantastic views! The hotel frontage was beautifully decorated for the Tour de France weekend. Breakfast was enjoyed in the pleasant dining room served by friendly staff and Saturday night dinner was particularly special enjoyed with old friends - went for the lamb shank, Paul cooks them beautifully and the cauliflower fritters are a joy in the mouth!
Well done Bob and Lesley- a hard weekend but lots of satisfied customers!! Thank you.

If you are staying in Hawes then I recommend you dine here one night. The food was excellent and you could tell it was all cooked fresh. The hosts were attentive and friendly and we stayed for a drink in the bar area afterwards as we felt very welcome. We will return here next time we are in the area
