Exterior view of the Fountain Hotel

The Fountain Hotel and Public Bar was built in the 17C as a Coaching Inn. It is in the centre of the busy market town of Hawes, which is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Today and for the last 28 years the hotel has been owned by the McCarthy family. You will find Angus & Mandy along with their children, Kim & Henry working in all areas of the business.

Our public bar is popular with both visitors & locals. You can enjoy wholesome, home cooked bar meals & real ales.

LIVE sports play a big part in the 'pub' atmosphere. SKY SPORTS and BT SPORT are available on two screens. Showing premier football, rugby league, darts & more.
