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.

Delicious food and friendly service - would definitely be happy to visit again next time we are in the Cotswolds. We were a bit cautious about how close the waiter got to us when asking about our order. WIthout a face covering or visor it would have been safer not to bend down so that his face was close to ours.

Our first visit to the Boxing Hare was a lovely experience. Lovely restaurant with a great relaxed ambience. Prompt and friendly service. Delicious Sunday lunch, everything tasted good from the Monkfish Scampi to the Tamworth Pork and the melting chocolate fondant was amazing (recommended by our waiter). All at a really reasonable price. If we are in the area we will definitely call again which is likely due to my husband being interested in the forthcoming Cars and Sausages events. Many thanks!

So respectful of the soft reopening. We felt safe, cared for and the food really is special. It’s not rushed and the service is better than many. Very pleased to be rebooking.

There are not many places just now that I would feel safe to go to. The Boxing Hare is one that I would never hesitate to visit. They are always professional, have great food and above all the team are not only brilliantly trained but are a real asset to the owners. We are going to lose so many noice places but I know they will always survive as they just always get it right. Congratulations to you all and see you again very soon

We dined once again at The Boxing Hare last Wednesday evening 9th July. From the menu choice to the quality of the food, it was excellent. The service from Leandro and Fabio (both delightful) was like a breath of fresh air! You can tell from how they both interact with diners, that they are passionate and enjoy what they do. What an asset to have these two fine young men looking after and taking care of diners. They are welcoming, friendly and unpretentious. A dining experience as it should be. Other establishments could learn a lot from their approach to customer care and their obvious joie de vie. Well done once again and we can't wait to come back later on in the year.
