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

My family and I were somewhat disappointed with regard to the level of service provided for the meal we had booked at The Old Hare & Hounds. 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

Beer good and a varied menu although I personally would like a few more vegetarian options. Staff friendly and quick service. Food hot... More

If you're dining on a budget this is a lovely place to eat - staff are very very helpful, and food is fresh and tasty. The drinks are excellent value too. It has a lovely contemporary feel to it while maintaining an atmosphere of an old English pub - difficult to describe, but it is a very pleasant experience to... More

We consistenly find that this pub, seated at the base of the lickey hills, is ideal for a restful, usually quiet, enjoyable meal. The staff, although it appears that they are overworked (but who isn't?), are cheerful, welcoming and friendly. The meals are of a good standard but allow plenty of time to just sit and chat or read a... More

Very slow in serving up three salads and a goulash. Baked Caemenbert was small for the price but house salad at £4.50 plus £2 for chicken and £3 for salmon fillet was good value. Confusing display of cask beers "Coming soon" Only two other tables eating on a Saturday night but food took 45 minutes to arrive.
