An excellent place to stay. Good food and beer. Friendly welcoming staff. Smoked haddock bake was delicious. Great breakfast. Only points stopping 5 star score was tiny room (room 3) Lovely, clean and comfortable but VERY small. And my husband doesn't drink tea or coffee, usually can offer a hot chocolate even if only Instant Break but no option so... More

We spent 2 nights here for my birthday with our 2 labrador dogs - Bobby and Daisy. Our stay was excellent in every way. Our room had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. We're used to being accommodated in tired dog friendly rooms well away from everyone - not here. This was a boutique style room in a... More

We have stopped at Hotels up and down the UK but this place puts the rest to shame. The room, the food and the friendliness as far as we are concerned cannot be beaten. For once we left feeling that we had had true value for our money. Cannot wait to return. Peter Alderley Edge

Stayed at this wonderful establishment for a midweek break. Greeted by a very pleasant young man and were given the chance to upgrade our room due to a late cancellation. What a beautiful room, just refurbished and would put some 5 star hotels to shame. If we could have taken our ensuite bathroom and shower home we would have!! Service... More

We visited the Hare and Hound for 2 nights and had with us our dog. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and were shown to our beautiful top floor double ensuite bedroom including beautiful stand alone bathtub. The decor was traditional but sophisticated and had a lovely homely feel to it. We were offered maps of local walks on our... More

Took my wife away for a couple of nights in the Lakes and chose this Pub after reading the reviews on this forum. I can honestly say that it was a joy to stay there. We arrived on Monday to be greeted by a delightful young woman who was extremely welcoming and friendly. The room we were allocated was first... More

We visited the Hare & Hounds for our evening meal in early March as we were staying nearby. I loved the rustic but elegant interior & found the log fire really cosy. We were served by a young man & young woman & both were extremely friendly & welcoming. We were really impressed by the food: starters & mains (steak... More

We have visited The Hare and Hounds a number of times and always found the food and hospitality very good. Our party of seven was again well looked after and we each enjoyed the dinner. However on this occasion there was a big downside. On the next table the couple had brought in a large dog. It was sharing their... More
