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.
Wonderful service and lovely food a great pub .
Excellent food, wonderful service. Well above average- everything tasted fresh, with high quality ingredients and flair
It was a quiet night so difficult to judge the atmosphere. The service was first class and we were made to feel really special. The meal was beautifully cooked and presented. The lemon posset has to be one of the best desserts I have ever had. If I could make one comment it is that the menu doesn’t seem to vary a lot making it sometimes feel a bit repetitive if coming often. But really small detail. I love this place and think you’re doing a great job.
Fantastic atmosphere and accommodating for our two doggies very helpful friendly staff food was superb hope to see more vegan options next time 5 stars.
Great food and great service. We are happy to keep going back.
Thank you for a wonderful Sunday lunch
Our first time at the pub, after hearing great things from friends and family. Fantastic little place and the food was absolutely to die for. Can’t recommend enough and will certainly be coming back. Thanks
brilliant food - all excellent but the beef and mussels are phenomenal, charming front of house and serving team. excellent wine list, good wines by the glass
As always the staff were attentive (but gave us time) and the food was fabulous. Compliments to the chef on the soufflé starter.
Excellent in every way, thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
An excellent meal - thank you
Lovely restaurant, great setting and wonderful service!
So glad we finally booked a table. We live just the other side of Banbury which doesn't have an equivalent brilliant pub / restaurant. We will be back!
Food and ambience very good. Excellent greeting by Arthur the golden retriever. Service was a little hectic (understaffed on New Year’s Eve?) Recommended.
Excellent except for very noisy large group that arrived while we were eating and lack of ice cream for desert which we were told was due to a faulty freezer
As always when visiting The Boxing Hare we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was outstanding and the service attentive and friendly without being intrusive.
The staff were all very kind and the dogs were welcomed!
Both members of staff we interacted with, whilst being seated and ordering, were extremely warm, welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Despite living only 10 mins down the road, this was our first visit. Our Sunday Roast was super tasty and we will definitely be back.
Thoroughly enjoyed my first dining experience at The Boxing Hare, great service and fantastic food.
Christmas lunch was eagerly anticipated as have dined here often and have had amazing food. The choices on the menu was not great but hey its Christmas and they did accommodate a fussy daughters desert requirements. I was disappointed, as although the quality of the food was good the presentation was lacking. It was really no more than a pub lunch. The meat - good quality- was just served on a plate with a dish of veg. I was eagerly anticipating a fine dining experience but was frankly very boring. The worst aspect was the Christmas pudding, very very disappointing for restaurant of such high standards. The pudding was dry and bland and was reminiscent of a fruit sponge rather than rich and decadent Christmas pudding. We will go back as we have had some amazing meals at other times of the year, but will not be back for Christmas next year, sorry.
The Cheese Soufle starter is the best we have experienced and we have tried quite a few locally and further afield. Our other selections were excellent. Only 1 comment on the Ribeye Steak which was confirmed at order stage as being 70 day aged the same as the Chateaubriand on display in the cabinet. I found the amount of fat within and on the edges to be more than I would normally expect. Having said that the flavour and crusting were excellent. Thanks for a great meal yet again.
Very well organised and efficient service, great food. Attentive staff. All good.
Excellent food ,service and atmosphere
Absolutely fantastic pub. Food was wonderful and the staff were great with the kids. Would definitely recommend a visit and can't wait to go back!
