Visited this fine beer emporium for a "Sunday Session" (see their website). Fine selection of their own beers and other bottled stuff. Busy, but easy to get served by the friendly and knowledgeable staff Two things had an impact on my enjoyment: 1) Bored toddlers who’s parents were dug in and enjoying the beer too much to realise that the kids had long since reached the limit of their attention span. 2) The session, which is an implied Go-as-you-please appeared to be a bunch of locals performing barely competent versions of popular tunes for the benefit of their mates. Be warned. Nice beer though.

Fantastic brewery and brilliant bar. The beer is always 100% perfect and the food is exceptional. The Sunday roast is a must!

Visited the brewpub and the brewery 2 jan 2015. Nice pub with their own beers on tap, a small store, where you also can buy other beers, f.e. Belgian trappist chimay and stuff like t-shirts.Decent prices in the shop. Nice atmosphere and nice small food.

Beautiful modern but cool building which is laid out for comfort. The food is adventurous and good even if some of the battered offerings has been taken a touch far. Pleasant and friendly service. On a minor point it would be nice to see one or two one off brews on the taps. Great though. Need more places like these.

A purpose built beer hall adjoining the brewery.
The Beer Hall is part of the Hawkshead brewery, which relocated in 2006 to a purpose built unit on a small industrial estate in Staveley where its neighbours include craft shops and cafés.
It’s a very modern, light wood, open plan space with two huge steel fermenters by the door and a gallery upstairs from which you can wander into the brewery itself. It’s a bit clinical and has a feeling of being not quite finished although the brewery is a bustling place and Hawkshead beers seem to be finding their way to an ever expanding catchment area. I noticed that the office has a map on the wall showing places to which they deliver.
There are 16 taps in the Beer Hall with all the Hawkshead beers and their Lakeland Lager plus Veltins. They have a good bottle list featuring Belgian and American beers and they also serve a house whisky (Bladnoch) and wines from small independent growers. There’s an interesting menu of “tapas”, which caused chaos and confusion as we’d been expecting an array of Spanish dishes rather than nouvelle cuisine with a distinctive English twist offered in small portions ideal for sharing. No matter, as the food was very tasty.
There’s a small “shop” at the back of the hall - really just a small storage room – with an impressive array of interesting bottles from various UK microbreweries such as Kernel, Thornbridge, Mallinsons, Buxton, St Austell, Harviestoun and Williams Brothers as well as some from the better Belgian breweries. The prices were good; for example, all the Hawshead bottles were £2, except for the Lakeland Lager which was £1.60.

The official brewery tap of the gorgeous Hawkshead Brewery, well hidden in an industrial estate in the village of Staveley, just a few steps off the road connecting Kendal and Windermere; a - literally - first floor beer hall, offering most of the Hawkshead brews either on tap or in bottles, closed for private parties in the evenings. Festivals are held twice ayear. A must, when You are touring the Lake District!

I really like the Beer Hall concept, where you can bring in food from the surrounding outlets.

Stopped off here on the way to a brief break in Ambleside. Nice quiet place with a fascinating view of the brewery. I had a decent tuna roll, but the choice of food was wide and tempting. Very good foreign selection and most of the Hawkshead beers either bottled or on tap. Pity it doesn’t open in the evenings.
