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.
Service was very good, they always seemed to know when we were ready. Atmosphere marked down a little through no fault of pub, large party gave little regard to us and we bashed and jossled a liitle while eating. Sunday lunch quality was good, hot and served pretty much when we were ready for it. Overall we would visit again.
Lovely meal. Didn’t feel rushed. Loved the pub feel.
The food and service was great. The toilets could do with a refurb as are very tired and tatty. We always judge a place on its loos! The pre Communication was great too. Thanks, we had a fab time!
Food and ambience were good but service was very slow for mains and dessert
Everything was fab, thank you
Excellent meal and service as always
For the most part it was very nice. Staff was friendly and attentive. Some parts of the restaurant seemed more in the style of a living room rather than a country pub. Starter was a little disappointing as the prawns were a bit gritty. Main course was very good. Dessert was very small considering the price.
Fabulous food and service in a great little pub. We will return, often!
The obnoxious behaviour and offensive language of other customers would prevent us returning with children or older members of the family but overall it was a lovely afternoon.
Great food from an interesting menu and excellent, friendly service. The prices were a very fair reflection of the quality that was on offer. We loved the fact that the Hare and Hounds is still a genuine, albeit upmarket, village pub and it was nice to see the locals in the bar on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was quiet as you would expect for a school night early in the week. We will happily go again.
Lovely food, nice atmoshere
The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Lovely pub - first time and will be back! Very good food, roast meat cooked perfectly and lean. Only slightly negative point if i had to say one would be that desserts are a little the pricey side!
Excellent food and service, don’t hesitate - but book in advance - it is very popular
Service slow, dropped some of our food said they would replace it but the s didn’t happen
We had a great evening meal at your Restaurant, the room was ideal and all really enjoyed the quality, quantity and service from the whole team. Just a pity that you are not closer to Baldock, for our regular meetings! Thanks very much, Jim Butler Baldock & District 41 Club
Staying in the area for the weekend. Dinner here Saturday night. Excellent food, lovely wine list, superb service and atmosphere. Not a single fault!
We had a very enjoyable evening but felt a little let down by the service. Had a long wait for drinks and starters.
Excellent location and great food
Excellent service and really kind staff. The food was delicious. The only negative thing was that the room was a bit cold, but we still enjoyed everything. :)
It was a lovely atmosphere, cosy and warm. There could have been more vegetarian options, but the ratatouille I had was amazing!!!
We have been to the hare and hounds a few times with friends and always enjoyed it. However yesterday the service was poor. We had to get drinks at the bar as We could not get anyone to serve at the table. When starters came my friend had to wait some time for a spoon to have her soup. The main course was luke warm one of our party had to send hers Back! And to top it all We were given a service charge because there were 6 of us! Given that We were disgruntled with the service it would have been nice to have the option to tip. Will probably be a while before we return.
My Sunday lunch of roast beef was fine but my wife's roast lamb was very poor. She had to ask for a steak knife to cut it and then she removed a side plate full of fat from the portion. There was an offer to change it but that never works as it means that I eat alone and then she eats on her own. The meat should never have left the kitchen in the first place ! The young waiting staff did not seem overly bothered about all this and we had to ask for it to be brought to the chefs' attention. Her meal was credited off but it was a really unsatisfactory meal which ruined what we hoped would be a nice time for both of us. This was our first visit for a while but it will be a long time before we return after this.
Good food, Clam Chowder was a delight and good service in a great setting.
Really pleased with every aspect of our meal at the Hare and Hounds yesterday. Food was superb too as was the service. We will definitlely be returning soon, probably over the Christmas period. Thank you!
We had a great meal and the service was excellent.
