Great food and beautiful setting. Couple of snags with service but absolutely not anything to deter going back

Fabulous food- so much more than standard “pub grub” and a real treat after such a long period of lockdown.

Being local and visiting Shuttleworth regularly over many years, my wife an I have frequently dined at the Hare & Hounds. We also had our wedding reception in the restaurant a few years ago. You made our wedding day special with superb food and excellent service. Yesterday we celebrated our wedding anniversary with a late afternoon dinner. The sirloin steaks were moist and tender and the service was first class as usual. Thanks to the chef, Nena and the rest of the team. We continue to recommended the Hare & Hounds to friends and family and we shall visit you again soon.

The pulled pork bubble and squeak main course was bland. The pannacotta was very small and far too solidly set. It should be silky and smooth and wobbly.

My friend and I do not eat any meat other than chicken. There is limited chicken or vegetarian options. We shared a large tapas plate and asked for the meatballs and chorizo dish to be swapped. The waitress suggested swapping for chicken skewers, which was great. Another friend sorted the splitting of the bill, so I did not look at the receipt until Saturday and was disappointed to see that we had been charged for the skewers - especially when this was a swap?

We really enjoyed our meal and the service was first class. It was just too cold to sit outside. We will be back when the weather is warmer or we can come indoors.

Waited 50 minutes for starters. Steaks were undercooked. Asked for salad instead of chips and ended up with a bucket full of rocket dumped on my plate. No sign of “salad”. Horrendous service. Will never go back.

So disappointed - had such a lovely meal here last year, booked a garden table for our first meal post lockdown only to be met with terrible service. Waited ages to be greeted, booking details weren’t kept outside then we were sat in a wind tunnel and despite asking if there was any flex in tables we were made to feel like an inconvenience all felt very disorganised. Appreciate everyone is finding their feet again and wait is going to be longer etc. But takes nothing to provide genuine customer service. Went to another place down the road where the food wasn’t of the same standard but service more than made up for it.

A great Sunday lunch, especially so given the conditions under which a pub & its staff need to operate.

Food was absolutely amazing. It's obvious a lot of care and attention went in to all the dishes we had. Service was good on the whole although my only criticism is no one checked on us during the meal, only once we had finished and a couple of the staff (I THINK the owner was one) were a bit stony faced and not very friendly. All in all a really good lunch and will come back again.
