Booked in advance meal for 10 for Mother's Day. We had to wait over half an hour for our table with no where to sit or stAnd other than in everyone else's way, leaving us feeling frustrated and uncomfortable at being in everyone's way. Mother's Day menu was a combination of Carvery or basic menu choices. The food was ok,... More

Me and my friends went for a Sunday carvery here and the food was lovely, it couldn't be faulted. The service was a different story. There were 5/6 visible staff but it was the slowest service I have encountered in a long time. We waited at least 20 minutes between being given the menu and being asked for our order,... More

The staff were welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was clean and the chairs comfortable. We had a fixed price two course lunch which was very pleasant but the choices were very limited. Parking was a problem even though the pub was nearly empty because of the cars parked in the car park for the car dealership next door.

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.
