We had a fabulous evening with two of our friends and was the first meal we have gone to since we came out of lockdown. I have worked all through the lockdown so i haven't felt isolated at all, but it was great to be able to socialise once again. All the staff were so friendly and helpful and we felt the atmosphere was lovely, the food of course was as scrumptious as ever and my husband was very impressed with the crispy egg. We wish you all the best going forward after this extremely difficult time for you and we look forward to seeing you again.

The Hare & Hounds is the first pub we've visited since restrictions were eased. We felt safe eating our lunch and drinking a glass or two of wine at an outside table. The food was good and the service was excellent.

I would like to say a big thank you. We booked for Mother’s Day although unfortunately due to the Covid-19 all pubs were informed by the government they would be closing. We asked if we could collect our meals as a take away, much to our delight the pub agreed. We have been to the Hare and Hound numerous times and the service and food are always faultless. I would certainly recommend this pub to everyone. Thanks again.

Our party was 14 people ...everyone left happy. I felt the service is hugely better with a smaller party. I felt we kept needing to prod to initiate things which m’y be your style for big groups. I would hesitate to book a large group with you again would do so after a discussion of how we should interact to keep things moving. Great food friendly staff very ne of our favourite places.

We had a lovely Sunday roast dinner. I would point out that a few of the items that would normally appeal to pescatarians (scallops and mussels for example) had chorizo or bacon added to them which meant they were no longer meat free which is a shame.
