Hotel & Pub in North Yorkshire
The Fountain Hawes
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 35 years the hotel has been owned by the McCarthy family. You will find Angus & Mandy along with their daughter, Kim who is in charge of the kitchen. Their son, Henry has now moved further afield, and is now a
pilot second officer, but will also help out if home.
Our public bar is popular with both visitors & locals. You can enjoy wholesome, home cooked bar meals & real ales.
