We have been for an evening meal with friends which was amazing, so decided to try Sunday Lunch, the food was gorgeous and the staff were friendly and helpful. I can't fault any aspect of the meal in anyway, it is well worth a visit.

As usual there was a warm welcome, at this traditional public house. The food was excellent, same quality as evening meals. Freshly cooked fish and chips, beautifully chunky white fish and hand cut chips with mushy peas and tartar sauce, yummy. all this and great value too. It is so refreshing to find somewhere that sells real food these days.... More

Enjoyed Sunday lunch here with a last minute booking for a family lunch following a Birthday party the previous evening. Pleasant staff and efficient service in this 'local' with a homely feel. The fish special of scallops, prawns, bacon and black pudding was splendid.

I like my meat pink but my wife prefers it cooked through, the staff catered for both of our requests without any fuss. A quick mention for the Sticky Toffee... More

Had the pleasure of popping by the Hare and Hounds on a second visit. The Sunday lunch was yummy, and considering I am a fussy eater, they have to go some to impress. Excellent food, great staff and a very warm welcoming pub. The menu has a great choice but you'd travel a long way (which I did) to find... More
