About Hare and Hounds

Here at the Hare & Hounds we serve good quality food and drinks in relaxed and informal surroundings.

Alongside our bar, we offer a small, daily changing, seasonal menu in our dining room. We use the very best produce that the Vale of Glamorgan has to offer. We have some of the most productive soil in the UK, which gives us meat, game and vegetables of the highest quality. The produce available to us from the best Vale producers, our own kitchen garden and our smallholding, dictate what is on the menu from day to day.

Everything is made from scratch in our kitchen, from our own sourdough bread and cultured butter, to fresh pasta. This is not pretentious fine dining; its just about good food, whether you’ve been for a long walk with your dog or have got something to celebrate. It is a type of regional Welsh cooking.

We are the proud holder of a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide, and we’re featured in The Good Food Guide, the Good Pub Guide and the Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide.

Unfortunately under current circumstances although I’m sure staff did the best they could I won’t be returning until all restrictions are lifted. The web site should have stated that the menus were to be tapas style and extremely small servings. 2 tiny pieces of tough lamb just don’t hack it for £15. Desserts were excellent thankfully. Staff didn’t seem to be relaxed at all with no rapport, which is almost impossible with masks.

I would recommend this place for its situation and for food (if the style suited the people). One small detail which would help eating al fresco is the plates should be properly heated up - as it was, they hadn't been so the roast meal went cold very quickly in the cool wind of the day! The rareness of the beef was good though and the cold dessert of chocolate bar ganache-style went down very well. Staff were all attentive although some were obviously more stressed than others by being 'back in the saddle'.

The food was beautifully presented and packed full of flavour. The cuisson was perfect and the seasoning precise. The turbot and hangar steak were bang on. The sweetbreads were a highlight for me, but my wife was even more delighted with her sorbet. Service was attentive and friendly without being overwhelming. The weather could have been better so some work needed there for next time perhaps?

As always top quality food & friendly, helpful staff. Such a shame a very small portion of potatoes with garlic butter carries such a high price. Aside from that blown away by flavours & presentation...thank you

Perfect evening for our first post lockdown meal + out first meal baby-free. Super quick service and friendly team as always. The food was excellent (particularly the hangar steak and the pecan pie). Couple of log burners on the patio area.

The food was absolutely delicious. The only negative we found was that the choices for vegetarians were extremely limited.

Shame about the weather on Thursday night, but great to meet up with a few friends for the first time in ages. So glad to be able to visit you again and look forward to popping in again very soon, although we will try to choose a brighter day!! Great food & service as always!

A great evening - food was delicious, I like the smaller plates concept. Good atmosphere, I like the mix of parties from families, to friends just having pints and crisps, to people eating like us. Only slight drawback was amount of people smoking as we were outside, I guess we aren't used to being around smokers these days. This was however late in the night and so wouldn't impact if you went earlier with kids.

It was so good to get back to near normality. The service was very attentive, the food was superb as usual. The tables were well covered with large umbrellas in case of rain, it was a bit cold, but we had wrapped up. I do prefer the normal meals rather than small plates, but saying that, could not falter the meal which was excellent.

Was fantastic to be back! Staff were excellent, and the owners have clearly put a lot of work in to make it as COVID safe as possible. Was such a shame the weather wasn’t great, but it didn’t take away from the occasion, the food was fantastic (the sweetbreads were superb) and the taste of that first pint of HPA was almost worth the 4 month wait! Looking forward to our next trip to the H&H!

On a wet and miserable evening, the quality of the food and hospitality raised our spirits. It was not the best evening to enjoy al fresco dining but we had a fabulous experience. The food was absolutely delicious and we received a warm welcome and attentive service. Would recommend the Hate and Hounds to all our friends, a wonderful place to relieve the tedium of lockdown.
