About The Boxing Hare

Our aim is to bring country fine dining to the Cotswolds. The menu will revolve around the best seasonal produce locally sourced from British farmers with occasional indulgences as well as virtuous everyday fare.

We hope to create a warm, charming and informal atmosphere where we can build a strong following of regular, happy guests and new ones too!

Most importantly to us is that The Boxing Hare should be a great place to wile away a few hours and be looked after by people who truly love what they do.

Be it a casual drink with friends, a romantic meal, a special celebration or a family outing, we look forward to welcoming you to The Boxing Hare.

Service was fantastic, very friendly. Food was good. The spicy bean cake is a big recommendation & lamb was so tender. Not the best dessert range the chocolate foundate looked microwaved and didn't live up to the rest of the meal. Seating area was a bit crowded and tables seemed a little bit to close. Overall lovely staff, good food but could do with spacing out the seating. Would definitely go back but definitely go for an extra wine or coffee over dessert.

Loved the Pods in the garden! Fantastic friendly waiters... food was gorgeous only thing I would say is it was very lunchtime menu friendly. Lots of main courses so I just had a starter but would be nice to see some smaller means for lunch

We had an outside pod which was very comfortable and protected us from the extremes of weather (we had sun, rain, hail, snow and thunder all in the space of about one and a half hours). The service and food were good - the staff extremely attentive and helpful. We will definitely return.

This was The Boxing Hare at its best. It was my mother's 95th birthday and she loved it. The staff were wonderful, charming, made a fuss of her in just the right way. It rained, it snowed and it hailed - there was even thunder during lunch but the food was excellent and the staff kept smiling. You have created a great outside covid secure space... nicely done. thank you.

As regulars we felt food prices had increased but recognise this is inline with providing outdoor heated pods/ rising food costs due to availability during a pandemic / changes to EU policy. The menu choice is excellent as was the service albeit 90 mins isn’t sufficient time to enjoy three courses and coffee/ liqueurs

Given that the weather was awful for our outing to the Boxing Hare, we absolutely could not fault our experience. The service was impeccable - all of the staff were so kind, and seemed really positive despite all the rain and we were generously offered a complimentary drink at the start and seated in the gazebo which was private and warm and sheltered from the weather. The food was amazing, the cheese soufflé in particular was the absolute highlight for us. We will definitely return once we can come and eat inside and would love to experience a Sunday lunch with you. Thank you for making my partner’s birthday meal out a good one to remember.
