Situated in a historic village over the River Crouch, The Hawk in Battlesbridge dates back to the 17th century, still a charming country inn. Serving time-honoured British pub dishes, The Hawk has pretty, extensive gardens with seating for al fresco dining. Inside, the rustic oaken beams, cosy hearth-fire and local antiques diversify the furnishings, but aid the country feel.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Hawk menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies designed by celebrity chef James Martin offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Hawk ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Hawk is just 2 minutes’ walk from Battlesbridge Train Station, in Essex.

    Look and feel of refurbishment is lovely. Very polite, warm welcome, however At 6:30pm three of the mains were off the menu. All new comers were sat in a row of tables almost on top of each other, really needed to be spread out. We were able to hear the full conversation of our neighbours. We were quite obviously " that waitress's area" I had pork belly, which was really flavourless, had about 6 green beans, about 2 teaspoons of gravy and way too much mash along with 2 small undercooked flavourless scallops for an extra £4ish. My sons pizza was good, although expensive for what it is.. I really don't mind paying for good food, this wasn't it. Lovely looking place for a drink and some bar snacks.

    Restaurant looking fresh, clean & stylish after recent makeover. Food satisfying albeit a little pricey (£3.50 for a small cup sized portion of twice cooked chunky chips). Service very pleasant & discreet.

    Really like the new decor but if im bluntly honest i was a little disappointed ... The food came out just luke warm and one of our party had to ask for a fresh plate of veg as they were cold .. I might well of sent my roast pork back under any other circumstances but i was hungry and did not want to take the chance of waiting too long for a fresh dish .. Also the drinks took far too long to get to the table.. Drinks were ordered way before the main dish but did not arrive until we had finished our meal which kind of defeated the object as my daughter and i purposely ordered a glass of red wine each to go with our meal...Also my daughters boyfriend ordered the Turkey roast of which he said the Turkey was very dry but again he was hungry and did not want to wait any further...My wife also had to send back her desert as the custard was cold on her christmas pud ..At the end of the meal we were offered a free coffee as a gesture of good will of which only one person wanted one .. ( not much of a gesture is what i thought at the time) So overall i have not changed my opinion of The Hawk,some visits good and some visits bad ...
