Had an appointment nearby so stopped in for lunch. Although was a bright sunny day, it wasn't that warm, so it was nice to sit in the airy conservatory so felt that was outside, without being cold! Good menu with lots of choice and some interesting and different dishes. Had a good chat with one of the staff about the... More

We had a really lovely meal here, I particularly liked the Malaysian fish stew - spicy and full of flavour, and the light bites, particularly the eggs florentine looked really good as well. Portions are a good size (they actually looked a bit too big with the burgers/fish and chips etc.) Desserts of pavlova and mixed berry crumble both very... More

A late lunch for three at The Hare was a generally satisfactory experience. The food was good (top marks for an imaginative “spiced Moroccan Salad”) and the service was friendly and extremely efficient. However, I was distinctly disappointed by a glass of Rioja which didn’t taste like Rioja by any stretch of the imagination: more like a young Burgundy. When... More

The Sunday roast is well over priced and does NOT represent good value for money. £14.95 for a few strands of cabbage, tablespoon of suede, 3 barely 'roasted' potatoes and 3 bits of meat! and no Yorkshire pudding! Our party was seated in the cold conservatory that lacked any atmosphere. I have no idea why this place has got such... More

The hare was one of the earlier places I reviewed and back then I could find no fault. This remains a go-to place when in Tunbridge Wells, but that could change. Since my earlier visits, some things are better: a server comes to the table to take food and drink orders (which consequently means that the bar area is not... More

I have eaten here many times in the past, but was disappointed on my last visit. The food was okay, but why on a spiced beef salad did the beef have to be cooked in batter and added to the salad. It therefore did not have the spiced flavour of the rest of the good salad. On roasts I think... More

A few years ago, The Hare used to be the place to go. However, that's not the case now. First, got shown to the table and first round of drinks ordered as well as food order, which was not problematic. Starter arrived, which was fine. Main course arrived and I asked for a glass of red to have with my... More

The Hare is a great place to go for a leisurely lunch. It's a great location, the interior is very pleasant and the atmosphere is all one could want from a big country pub/restaurant. But why oh why do we all put up with the slow service? I've been there more times than I can remember and it is just... More

Very busy but that's what you get when the food and service is this good, we were well looked after and as the food is all cooked fresh, the quality is perfect, its well worth booking as its packed out, to save disappointment on walking in and not getting a table.....

Our expectations were high from previous visits and we were not disappointed. The rare roast beef was tasty and cooked to perfection, with plenty of well prepared fresh vegetables, Yorkshires etc. And my wife was very happy with her sea bass fillets. Puds and coffees good too, all in very pleasant decor and atmosphere. Staff friendly and helpful, after a... More
