5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 NEW

Wanted an old school pub that wasn't too gastrofied and this fits the bill. Food is varied and great. They are always busy at weekends so if you can't get a table for food they will seat you in bar area (about the only difference is a candle on the table). Very enjoyable

None of your gentrified gastro pub rubbish here: this is a good honest pub which serves excellent beer (Ringwood Best, naturally) and proper food: liver and bacon for me and steak pie for my wife, both of which were delicious. Excellent value for money, nice location on the edge of Sway and really friendly staff. Go there!

Having lost our car in the recent storms we made several visits here whilst visiting the garage opposite. The pub is warm, cosy and welcoming with friendly staff. It's essentially pub grub but very well cooked and presented and our various meals; shepherds pie; pasta; chilli etc etc were all very good. There is good selection of wines, beers and... More

We loved this little pub. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The beer garden is a lovely little sun trap where we could easily spend hours. We didn't eat, but the menu looked good. I would really recommend, especially if you are doing a New Forest walk as we were.

The Hare and Hounds is our local, and I suspect we've eaten there more than most who post a review. It's a great pub. Pretty outside, comfy atmosphere inside, and super hosts and staff. Good choice of beers, good value wine, and great pub grub. Highly recommended.

Came to this pub for lunch after a long walk in the forest with our dog, we both opted for the burger as it was quick and easy for a cold day before returning home, top quality pub grub, service was good although the one barman was a bit swamped as he seemed to be on his own behind the... More

Popped in here on the way back from visiting friends in nearby Wootton. Easy to find on the road leaving Sway to Brockenhurst. Plenty of parking adjacent to the pub. Great buzz on entry and nice welcome from the bar staff. We ordered our drinks and meals at the bar and then chose a table. Various places off the bar... More
