My thanks go to Paul Harper and his team of staff, who were always polite and extremely helpful, who worked tirelessly to provide a wonderful and very memorable occasion. The food,... More

Visited with family - we visited from South Yorkshire, the pub is so very clean smart and food was prompt, could have as little or as much as you wanted and not harassed by staff! Very reasonably priced! Well worth a visit for such a great smart little pub!

emailed, telephoned twice as my husband was driving from Formby Merseyside at 4am doing a full day's work...to make sure of my booking for 2 nights stay. On arrival at the Hare & Hounds he was told that there was nothing booked in his name & there was a wedding at the pub so they had no chance of giving... More
