Need to book in advance on a Sunday

We have eaten here in the past and found the Carvery to be very good. The pub is quite large and normally you can find a table, although we did struggle last Sunday. If you want to eat here particularly on a Sunday, make sure you book, at least a week in advance. If your just turning up, try... read more

Another great carvery as always. Visited this place dozens of times and the carvery is always top notch regardless of what day/time you go. Succulent selection of meats, always cooked to perfection. Good selection of potatoes and vegetables, the cauliflower cheese is second to none. My daughter always goes for a meal from the menu, staff always let me know... More

I took my husband and twin girls here for Father's Day lunch and I have to say it was a great disappointment. When we entered the pub, it took us a while to actually find someone to ask about the table we had booked. I know booking is basically a necessity on a Sunday but you need to have somewhere... More

Surprisingly good ! Came across when we were peckish on a journey, & although it's massive the service & quality is v good. Kept the receipt (for postcode) & satnav'd it on the way back for a massive carvery with no holding back on the meat - like a good old fashioned carvery used to be.

We went to the Hare and Hound late on a Monday evening and the service and food were impeccable. I had lamb and roast along with delicious cauliflower, yorkshire pudding, gravy, potatoes, stuffing and other veges. The service was friendly, prices not too shabby and the atmosphere was nice. We stayed and talked a long time and no one had... More
