Back Once Again

Came back again with family - again food was very good - nice to see it reasonably busy - the 2 waitresses who looked after us were very attentive and pleasant - a credit to a small pub that they can get staff like this. Really looking forward to coming back again!

Popped in for a weekday lunch as we were passing through, lovely country style pub with friendly staff. Would recommend the tomato soup and the chunky chips were superb, well worth a visit!!!

If you choose from the set menu you can have a fabulous meal of freshly cooked, local ingredients for a great price. This is a nicely decorated, welcoming pub.

The family and friends went for Sunday lunch. There was a great choice on the A'la Carte menu and a few great options for a traditional roast dinner (lamb, beef and pork). The roast dinner option was good value at £14 for two courses as portion sizes were good and the lamb i had was lovely. Presentations of the Puddings... More

We used to use this pub when we lived in Ripon 30 years ago so decided to have a trip down memory lane when back visiting friends....wow...I so enjoyed this meal...sea bass with a crab veloute...absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The others had steak which was apparently lovely too! Huge onion rings...very crispy as they should be but rarely are!... More

Consistently great food and atmosphere at Hare & Hounds! Called in on Saturday evening for a quick drink only to be still there hours later after a lovely meal. Eaten here many times and it has never failed to impress both on the food and service front. We will be back many more times I am sure.

After a morning visiting the country show at Ripley we decided to head North, maybe we'd see a nice pub. At a difficult right turn in a bend we too our life in our hands and with a heavy foot we hurtled into the country lanes leading to the Hare & Hounds. A pretty village, and an attractive old pub...

The previous reviews had us waiting on the porch at opening time last night. What a delightful find and well worth the plaudits given to this establishment. Town hostelries are all well and good, however village pubs like this need to be saved. Warm welcome given and no feeling of being in an empty pub. I imagine it is really... More
