Saturday afternoon heaven

Absolutely amazing food, lovely staff and a great setting. Would truly recommend this anyone. This place has recently been been refurbished and this has been carried out to a high standard. We were welcomed with our two dogs which was lovely.

We visited for lunch over the Christmas period for lunch. We knew that the prices here were a little higher than elsewhere but were hoping for exquisite food. What we got was very nice and well presented but lacking the wow factor (which at those prices it should be). The service staff were ok but nothing special and we didn’t... More

Selected this restaurant after checking Trip Advisor as we wanted somewhere for a relaxed family dinner instead of the hotel we were staying at. The staff kindly allowed us to decorate the table before we arrived with glitter and balloons as it was a 60th birthday celebration. They also moved us to a quieter section of the premises as we...

Searching for a new pub as a regular weekend venue we were looking forward to our visit to The Hare and Hounds. We had received some good reports over the last few years and the menu on the website looked good but sadly was not the current menu. Anyway, we arrived at 8.00pm on a Friday night to find it...

Excellent quality food, fabulous selection of drinks and loving the new decor and garden. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. My teenagers love the 100% beef burger too!

20 yrs on: When you always chose the same dish you feel the writings on the wall. What happened to the "Don't give a stuff" attitude at the Hare & Hounds? I know they can do so much better, be so much more imaginative & fill those tables again to make the place sing with joy as it once did.... More

My friend and I visited after an absence of many years although we live locally. We were pleasantly surprised by the change. My friend described her burger as the best she had eaten. I was not so bowled over by the fish although the chips were good and the accompanying pea dish tasty. The staff were all very friendly. Worth... 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

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 was great (worth... 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.
