About The Hare & Hounds
A family-run country pub, The Hare & Hounds Old Warden use fresh, local ingredients to create a menu of European classics. With a menu that changes every 6 weeks, the seasonal dishes are joined by local ales and world wines, in a setting packed with rural charm and laidback hospitality. Set amidst beautiful Bedfordshire countryside, the Hare & Hounds sits in the heart of the village.
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.
Can’t wait til we can be inside again!! Maybe have an option on booking form to express a preference to be under cover!
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.
Really good but hard to flag down a waiter or waitress
Great staff and service, a lovely evenjng
Great food and great service booking system good and easy to use
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 great we will be joining you on Saturday!
Super friendly staff, lovely pub in a beautiful location.
Lovely garden setting and great food!
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.
A lovely friendly pub, a great afternoon in the beer garden with friends and a tasty Sunday lunch.
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.
Lovely setting, great food and really pleasant serving personnel. A great Sunday lunch - thanks very much.
Very well organised. The usual fantastic food and friendly, attentive staff.
Always a well thought out and excellently prepared menu We come for the quality food, the menu is obviously prepared by chefs that love what they do.
Great food, good staff and good choice of drinks. Fully complies with covid restrictions and I can never fault the food or service in this pub.
A lovely post lockdown meal. Thank you very much
Amazing food and great service! We will be back very soon
