The Hawes Inn is in South Queensferry, Edinburgh. It is directly below the city’s iconic Forth Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was also voted Scotland’s greatest man-made structure.

The food menu is broad. Classics are combined with recent additions to pub menus. For starters, there’s king prawn cocktail, salt and pepper calamari and oven-baked mushrooms. Next, options include a pie of the day, fish and chips, and a rich red wine lasagne. As well as these, The Hawes Inn serves chicken and vegetable Penang curry, aubergine parmigiana and hunter’s chicken schnitzel.

Pizzas are also on offer and stone-baked to order. In addition to margherita and pepperoni, there’s also hoisin. This uses a base combining the traditional tomato with the sweet and salty Cantonese dipping sauce. Those after something grilled need look no further than the jam-packed signature burger or sirloin or rib-eye steaks, each of which is served with chips.

Sundays at The Red Cow call for a roast. Turkey and pigs-in-blankets are available all year and there’s also a Sunday trio - all three meat options (beef, pork belly, turkey) served with roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli, parsnips, a Yorkshire pudding and unlimited gravy. A candied vegetable roast is on offer for non meat eaters.

The Hawes Inn is part of Vintage Inns, a network of 180 country pubs across the UK. Each of Vintage’s pubs is dog-friendly and can be hired for a variety of special occasions.

Not what it used to be

I've been visiting The Hawes Inn a few times a year for many years, tonight was by far the most disappointing visit I've had. We had a long wait for the mains, when they did arrive the food had been left under the heater for so long the chicken was dry and the burger bun solid. The portion size was minimal especially considering the price. We ordered desert which took another 30 minutes, the sticky toffee pudding was good but they gave us a crumble instead of the Honey Pot. When we eventually got the honey pot there was barely any mousse and the honeycomb ice-cream was just vanilla ice cream. Unfortunately this place has gone down hill fast and I shall not be returning or recommending it to anyone. I also had a Sunday roast there not long ago and was disappointed with the tiny amount of meat on the plate. Maybe they could focus on larger portion sizes instead of redecorating every season
