Now that Spring is almost here we decided to visit the Hare and Hounds as it has had a refurbishment. It all looks so cosy and welcoming sitting there at the foot of the lickey hills and we found inside very smart with open fires and cheerful staff welcoming us back. The food, however, was a great disappointment to us.... More

After hearing many mixed reviews about this pub, my partner & I decided to take a visit after hearing it was under new management. We were not disappointed! The pub has clearly just had a refurb, it was immaculate even on a very busy Friday night. Friendly staff, warm & welcoming. Will definitely be returning!

The atmosphere was good, busy lots of... More

Busy pub, food is very average, pub grub, nothing to write home about. Service is ok, although usually a fair wait at the bar of an evening, and regulars always jump the queue

Our party of 25 were looked after by only one waitress, Suzanne, who under the circumstances did a very good job, she is to be congratulated on her efforts. Suzanne took note of... More
