Enjoyed the meal but there a few sloppy irritants. Shown to our table and the waitress said she would come back and take our drinks order, she didn’t neither did she give us menus. After 10 mins l asked another waitress to take our drinks order, she did but still no menus, had to ask for them and she said she thought the first waitress had given them to us. Charming staff but a few didnt seem on the ball!

We had a lovely evening here to celebrate our anniversary. Service and food was great but it is pricey, we could only go here on special occasions due to the cost.

Never had a bad meal here and as coeliacs we appreciate the extra care they take to make sure everything is gluten free for us - even making something specially.

Little slow on service but the food was amazing. A kids menu would make it 5 stars

The food, the helpfulness of all the staff, particularly Ben, the bar staff and the chief Chef could not have been more helpful in providing our party of 22 (for our final Hull University Air Squadron reunion) with such a memorable rewarding evening. The food was really excellent and the payment system for our party was made smooth and very efficient. Many thanks to "The Hare and Hounds, Old Warden".

A cracking Sunday lunch with a close-up magic show as a surprise treat. The whole family felt very welcome and looked after and the two little ones now want to go back daily. Thanks to the team

Food too salty Food arrived too quickly. We hadn’t finished our pre dinner drinks when starters came. Mains arrived within a couple of minutes of our starters being cleared! Was all too quick! Waitresses were excellent & attentive

Dined 2 nights - 22nd & 23rd. Food on both nights was excellent; burgers well priced, rest of menu a little expensive. Beer very good. Service 1st night was fine; second night service was poor - once a large party had arrived, I was effectively ignored for the rest of the evening until long after I had finished my main course and drink and was ready to leave.

Unfortunately my friend and I had an awful experience. I wish we had been notified that there was a wedding party in one room and we would be sat on a table in the bar area with just one other large table of regular people who were very loud and one very drunk. We were served warm wine and could not hear ourselves think and so asked to be moved, the only option outside. Once sat outside we could only hear all the wedding party and although this was understandable we had children running around and guests squeezing past and so moved to another table where we trapped every glass we had with wasps. It’s good that everyone has a wonderful time especially at a wedding but I would have preferred to have been told that the restaurant was full than experience this. We waited for our bill but gave up and returned to the bar where the loud drunk man came up and was shouting and kept trying to move me by my arm, I stood on the other side to move away from him, he was only drunk and friendly not offensive but so loud! Sorry to say it was not a good night for us!
