It's good to see this place has closed down and has seemingly been bought out by a local brewery. The food and service here was a joke when I visited and I see others have had problems with the rooms. Let's hope the new landlord does not let it fail.

We were in between houses, having sold ours in North London and were waiting for the funds to be finalised before being the keys to our new property, and all of our possessions were in the back of a removal van and in storage, so we had to find somewhere to stay at short notice and the Hare & Hounds...

Below is a copy of an email outlining my complaint. Over 6 weeks later and following a promise that I would persue court action I finally got a refund. Avoid at all costs. I wish to complain about my stay in your accommodation on the night of Sunday 24th November. Your hotel was recommended to me as the first option... More

It is a very olde worlde place with a modern touch .The staff were friendly and very... More

Thank you to the Hare and Hounds for hosting my sons wedding yesterday, we had a fab time. For the amount of people we had (approx 50) it was a perfect venue. We wanted somewhere low key without pomp and ceremony (ie no top table and sit where you like ) and this certainly fitted the bill. So many nooks... More

I found myself stop for something to eat and a couple of drinks here on my way back to Braintree with my girlfriend.. As we arrived we was greeted by what we found out to be the manager later on, he was running around like a headless chicken and we didn't have a very welcoming reception from him. He then... More

We stayed here as we were going to a friends wedding at the Fennes. Staff were really friendly and checking in was easy. Rooms were clean and reasonably priced. Breakfast was very nice. Following day I had to pick my car up from the wedding venue and the owner very kindly drove me there. I would definately stay there again... More
