Now that the Metcalfe Arms is a cycle shop (albeit with a licensed cafe) where can we go for a nearby drink - and possibly a meal in a pub?

The following village pubs are all within 5 miles of Hawstead according to the CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) website

The Red House, Stanningfield


This is the nearest pub to Hawstead (just 1.6 miles): just go up Bells Lane and turn right at the top.
