We enjoyed dinner at this smart gastronomic pub. The staff worked really hard to make our evening enjoyable despite social distancing challenges, well done. Food was excellent.

Great experience. Feels like the team has done everything possible to protect customers and staff whilst also maintaining a lovely atmosphere and the same high quality of food we have come to expect from The Kentish Hare. Thank you.

Excellent food, just felt menu was less varied and interesting than usual, but totally understand that this could be due to covid and staffing levels. We felt very safe. Well done!

We had a wonderful time. We received a friendly welcome on arrival. The table was spacious and it was lovely to be next to the open doors on the warm summer afternoon. Cocktails and beers chosen we opted for the nibbles to share followed by the roasts with all the trimmings! Truly delicious. Everything was perfect. Thank you.

The staff at The Kentish Hare are doing their very best to provide their usual friendly & efficient service in these difficult times. We felt safe & comfortable with the new dining conditions even though the weather meant we had to eat indoors. The food was of the same high standard as always
