We brought friends for Sunday lunch, as ever it was fantastic all around. The beef I had just melted in your mouth.

A bit noisy in the restaurant area at the side and back of the pub - suspect that some wall and ceiling hangings would sort this out by reducing reverberation

Food was excellent. Have only put 4 stars for service and atmosphere because we were seated near the bar and when the coffee machine was used it was noisy and dirty glasses and dishes were left there. Staff very pleasant. Will certainly be back, but will ask to sit in main part of restaurant.

Sunday Lunch is fabulous value for money. An hours wait . . . which sometimes this matters but it didn't on this occasion. Maybe a complimentary something would be a nice gesture.

Once again we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening with you. The service is outstanding and so is the food. We enjoy the banter with the staff and appreciate the fact that they remember us and look after us - even if we are quite loud!

Very happy with the food and service. We found it very noisy and almost impossible to talk amongst ourselves. Also it was quite expensive.

Food was great in a lovely setting and relaxed atmosphere. Selection of ales was not extensive though and the only thing that I felt let it down slightly.

An excellent venue with lovely food and great service. My only tiny gripe would be a lack of choice in Bourbon (my drink of choice) but nonetheless I will definitely return in the near future.

I have been quite a few times to the Kentish Hare and enjoy both the food and the atmosphere. It is not the cheapest place but neither is it extravagant. Service is unassuming, which I like, but on this occasion a bit too much at the end of the meal. We will be back, although after we have been back to the Harbour Kitchen first.

We had a great evening at The Kentish Hare. Warmly welcomed at the bar and not rushed to our table, we really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The menu was interesting and the food was delicious (rolled hake for me, ox cheek for him) and I'm sure we'll be back when next in the area. Thank you!

Standards of service were attentive, but not intrusive. It's always nice, at this time of year, to have a roaring log fire in the background. The food was delicious and, even though a mistake was made with one dish, chef insisted on correcting it before it got to the pass, sending his apologies for the delay. A really nice, human touch. When the food arrived, we could understand why. If it's not perfect, it's not served! Excellent menu, excellent wine list and peerless service. Well done The Kentish Hare.

Sunday lunch good but could be better. Beef nicely cooked, but two slices was a little ungenerous. Roast Potatoes seem to be pre-cooked and hard, not crispy. Puddings very good.
