An excellent carvery but be prepared to wait in line as very busy.

We had a family Easter Sunday lunch here (11 of us in total) and we all had the carvery and it was excellent. There was a choice of roast meats (turkey, gammon, beef, lamb) and plenty of vegetables to help yourself to, along with Yorkshire puddings, stuffing, cocktail sausages, and delicious gravy... read more

Carvery is always tasty, fresh and varied. Love it that you always have all the trimmings too. Was a bit disappointed last night as we booked a week or so in advance and got put in the dingy bar area rather than the lovely light conservatory. Had to walk all through the crowded bar with our plates which was a... More

Great carvery with good choice of fresh vegetables, the meal was hot, well cooked and delicious. We hope to be back to sample a light lunch later in the week.

I have been visiting the Hare and Hounds for many years - the carvery is outstanding! There is always a range of meats; turkey, ham, pork and beef - and the sides/vegetables are always fully stocked and taste great. The pub has had an additional seating area built in the last couple of years, which is a credit to the... More

Massive queue for the carvery meant wait to get served and all tables booked! Sat in bar food ok, lasagna and chicken nuggets. Steak bland and sauces served in sachets which took the edge of it. Did not have desert as some looked as if they had been in the display cabinet a while! If you like a Carvery go... More

This was a birthday get together for 12 members of my family. We all had the carvery & were pleased with the amount of meat on the plate plus the choice of veg. The outstanding feature of the time spent here, was the helpfulness of the management/staff when through no fault of theirs, diners on a nearby table, took exception... More

The Hare and Hounds is a lovely pub. Large welcoming log fire and great friendly staff. The carvery is second to none and unusually the vegetables were first class (as is the gravy). We have been here several times and recently went with a few friends who like us thought it to be a fantastic meal. Would definitely recommend. Enjoy.

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

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 to make a reservation....it's well worth the... More
