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”.

Visited for the folk festival. Despite being packed with punters, the service was good and there was a huge range of tasty real ales on offer. Would love to visit again.

I booked ahead but the tourgiude said Friday's are usually quiet so if you wanted to go on a Friday you would probably be ok not to book. Booking is very easy though!
