Great Carvery!

We love eating at the Hare & Hounds. The carvery is always superb - a good mix of excellently cooked meats (beef, turkey, pork etc.), accompanied by really well cooked vegetables. The service is very good, but the restaurant is usually very busy at peak times, so you would be really well advised... read more

We ate here on a Saturday night and arrived to find the bar area absolutely rammed with locals blocking the way making it extremely difficult to get to the bar. There is no reception so you have to fight to the bar to find where one's table is, to get a drink and then again to order food. We found... More

The bar was blocked by seated locals. The chap I asked moved and was very polite, but it's hardly welcoming. The staff were a bit off pace, they were all helpful and polite, but didn't seem to realise that not everyone had been before. Ie we had to get a table number before ordering, logical but not obvious. The food... More

This pub has a very good resteraunt with a full menu of meals but the best is the Carvery. Come early though. During the week, the Carvery hours are 12-2.00 and 6.00-9.00 and all day Sunday. They have beef,pork,ham,turkey, and lamb . You can choose one or all and then choose your veggies from a great selection and have as... More

Enjoyed bountiful carvery with plenty of choice. Unusual for a carvery in my experience, all piping hot and fresh. Slow roasted beef the tenderest I've eaten (except for American steaks...) Plenty of seating and fairly full for early in the week. Booked a further visit before we left.

Met friends here for lunch, it was a first visit and we were pleased with our choice. It's in a nice setting, the food is very good, partriculary the carvery beef. And not too expensive, a meal and two drinks each worked out at only £20 per couple. There is no waitress service to speak of, you order at the... More

The food is fresh, there is a decent choice and the carvery is really nice. My main issues were that upon our arrival we ordered drinks at the bar and were asked to pay for them immediately, they would not add them to the final bill even though we had a reserved table waiting for us. Same for the main... More
