Slow to start, but worth it in the end.

We went to the 'new' Hare midweek for a quick lunch. I'm afraid quick it wasn't. You can't order drinks at the bar, they want to serve you at the table. This was painfully slow. I asked for menus twice before I got them. Once we had drinks and menus things improved. Ordering was efficient, and food... read more

Highly commended in the Good Pub Guide in 2010, subsequent reviews have suggested that it had gone down hill a little. I was pleased to see that more recent reviews were describing this establishment as improving. Worth a try then. The exterior is quite startling; very blue. The interior is very nice and the staff are fine, although they seem... More

This foodie pub close to Lingfield racecourse was very quiet on a recent race day and for good reason. The food was average, the choice limited and the gents toilet was shut. The going was definitely heavy.

From the outside, it’s not what you expect to find on the inside. In fact, you’d probably dismiss it and drive right past. Inside, it’s a bit of a hotchpotch of styles and quirky; a few hops hanging from the ceiling, bohemian soft furnishings, fairy lights. Some of the tables have white table cloths, others are bare wood. The quality... More

I have eaten here many times and really enjoyed it. For a milestone birthday the H&H put on a special menu for 18 of us, starting with English sparkling wine and non-alcoholic cocktails followed by four courses. The quality of the cooking was exceptional. Service was faultless - everything ran smoothly and we were made to feel really welcome. If... More

one of the best meals I have ever had in a pub..the serving was adequate, hot, and well presented. The staff were friendly and gracious at all times, the chef was courteous and well presented..food a little pricey, but the price is reflected in the quality of the food.. Even if you go for a one off meal.. You will... More

Or dreadfully slow, depending how you look at it. Despite not seeming to be that busy a 2 course lunch for 4 people took 2 hours. There were 4 front of house staff but not entirely sure what they were doing. It took ages to get the menus and even longer to get any food. We then had to ask... More

Simply the best place to eat in Lingfield for food, service and ambience. The waiters are attentive without being overbearing, the food is always faultless and the ambience is relaxed with a 'no need to rush' feel. We also love the slightly boho feel to the place which is different to any other pub/restaurant in the area.

Came as a four for a Valentine's Day evening, which I has booked back in early January to guarantee a place. I was called back a few days later from a man who must be the manager, as I have been before and recognised his voice, to say that that evening there will be a special set menu. What he... More

After deciding to meet a friend half way between homes Lingfield was decided and the Hare and Hounds picked- and it did not disappoint!! We were greeted with the warmest of welcomes by, what I can only guess is the Landlady and seated in the cosy pub area next to the fire. The food is excellent and cooked by somebody... More
