ABOUT The Hawes Inn

The Hawes Inn is an authentic, modern country pub serving a delightful range of pub dishes and some truly great beers, wines, gins and real ales.

The fantastic chefs at The Hawes Inn have carefully crafted a selection of menus to suit every occasion at any time of the day. From brunch through to dinner, we have a dish for you with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options available also.


Located in South Queensferry, The Hawes Inn is perfect if you’re looking to get away from the bigger cities. It’s located just 20 minutes from Dunfermline via the M90, and just under 30 minutes from Edinburgh via the A90.

The Hawes Inn has strong connections with the celebrated author Robert Louis Stevenson, who was born in Edinburgh on the 13th November 1850. It is said that he stayed in the Inn and actually wrote part of the famous novel 'Kidnapped' in one of the rooms. Indeed the Kidnapped actually includes a passage about the Hawes Inn.

KEEPING BUSY IN South Queensferry

There are plenty of exciting things to visit in South Queensferry, before or after your visit to The Hawes Inn.

Make sure to visit the Forth Bridge, a Scottish icon that is recognised around the world as the most famous of cantilever designs. Having opened in 1890, it was the world’s first major structure and therefore represents a key milestone in the history of modern railway civil engineering. The Forth Bridges are a wonder of the modern world, with UNESCO declaring the Forth Bridge as the sixth World Heritage site in Scotland back in July 2015.

Love the outdoors? Make sure to visit Inchcolm Abbey and Island. Dating back to the 12th Century, Inchcolm Abbey was founded by King David I and is the best preserved group of monastic buildings in Scotland today. The Abbey and it’s grounds are open to the public to explore at their leisure and you can even climb up to the top of the tower for spectacular views of the island! Take in the sights and history that South Queensferry has to offer, then head to The Hawes Inn for a pint or delicious dish.
