I have eaten at just about every pub restaurant in the area and I have found the hare and hounds to be the best I’ve been to highly recommend

Visited for the first time on a Sunday. The bar area was very busy and as we hadn’t been there before we weren’t entirely sure where we were supposed to go. However we were quickly greeted by a smiling member of staff and guided to our table. The service was quick and the food plentiful and delicious. Have already recommended to friends and we will definitely be back. Thank you

Great food. Lovely pub. Staff were lovely but had to ask for things a couple of times before they came (drinks/condiments etc..) - but it didn't really impact our experience too much on the day. Will be back

The tables in the restaurant are much too close to each other, The table next to ours was about 2 feet away and my partner and I heard much more of their conversations (table of 4) than what we were trying to say to each other.

Food was good, service was ok but 1 starter didn’t arrive and the children’s meals came after the adults. I didn’t think much to the children’s meals and none of them ate it. It’s good that you go to the trouble of giving children French fries but then they were covered in pepper which most children won’t eat! The burgers also looked very unappetising in contrast to the adults burgers, this was disappointing. On the whole the adults food was good but when you have hungry children who can’t eat their dinner then it spoils it a little for the adults.

The service was like the food. Substandard. We left 1/2 of our food and at no point were we asked why. The food was incredibly overrated. Poor cuts of steak over seasoned to mask poor quality. 3 mains were £75. This is a price point that demands higher quality food and service.

We visit regularly; it has an interesting menu, the food is very good and the atmosphere cosy - particularly in winter when the fire is lit! The bar area is well used by the locals adding to the whole experience. It’s one of our favourite places to eat!

Lovely family lunch. Everything faultless and even our four legged family member was given a bowl of water on arrival. Definitely be visiting again soon.

The service was quite slow for a relatively empty dining room but the food was very good quality when it came

We have not enjoyed all three courses so much for a long time and as we selected different items from the menu that meant six individual dishes were presented and cooked to perfection. In addition the dining room looked really smart and created a warm and relaxing atmosphere to spend the evening in.

This is the second time we have been in the last few weeks and it didn’t disappoint, I tend to go for fish dishes and each time the meal has been really good, to the point where I know I couldn’t make it at home! I plan to bring my Mum for a birthday treat in a few weeks as I know she would really enjoy the food also.
