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.

Came for Sunday lunch and the food was amazing. But the waiting staff were horrendous. One of the waiters, a middle aged man, was very unprofessional, giving orders to more junior members of staff out loud in front of customers, moving tables around whilst diners were still eating. The waiting staff seemed very unorganised and out of control. Nobody seemed to know what they were doing etc. I felt paying over £70 for a 2 course lunch with 1 drink each (1 being a soft drink) was quite expensive for such poor customer service and atmosphere.

A lovely pub, great food and atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and attentive, the log burner was very cosy on a wet and windy November's evening.

It was our first visit here and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere, service and food was wonderful. Everywhere was very clean including crocks, plates and glassware. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. We will definitely go back.

We had a lovely meal and were lucky to be given a glass of wine each on the house, which was a nice touch, thank you. We have rebooked to come for my mother’s birthday on the 8th December.

We took a friend for her birthday and had a lovely time. Service had improved vastly from the last time we ate here, when you are paying above average you expect everything about the experience to match and this time it did.

The Boxing Hare was recommended to us, and therefore we decided to book for Sunday lunch - birthday treat, and what a treat it was. The food was delicious and we were made to feel very welcome and shown around the beautiful atmospheric restaurant. A sheer delight! Thank you to you all - we will certainly be back, in particular to try the 'Pan Roast Padron Peppers'
