Having enjoyed a family lunch here in June, we returned for a celebration dinner for two. The menu is extensive. The lobster bisque was served in a separate jug to the other ingredients which were simply placed in a soup bowl. The bisque was cold at the top and near-boiling at the bottom - perhaps an indication that it was... More

We haven't been here for a while & noticed it had been renamed the Hare Grill & repainted outside. We hadn't realised until we walked in that it has also been completely refurbished inside. Gone is the wonderful eclectic interior which has ben replaced by a sterile french/american banquette interior. Such a shame. Sadly, the menu has changed too and... More

First time here, knew it was here and planned to visit but only just got round to it. It has undergone and major refurbishment and as a result it has a very calm and smart interior. But more importantly the food was excellent, plenty of choice and all four of us said the various dishes we had were excellent. Price... More

On the way to a day by the coast we stopped off at the seemingly nice gastro pub for a spot of lunch. We generally like to enjoy a weekend lunch without rushing hence not stopping for fast food somewhere in a town or at a service station. Unfortunately we got a more leisurely experience than we possibly expected. The... More

Was a nice stop off in Lingfield area. Bright blue exterior stood out! Looks like it has been done up - a kind of Spanish feel with very upbeat music inside, lots of activity on the blackboard 'ladies night'. 'surf and turf' 'bbqs' etc - though no one was around when we snuck in. The bar nibbles sounded delicious and... More

For a gastropub this has to come top of my list ATM... fantastic food, service and good price. I had a sirloin steak that was so tender, it melted in my mouth. and cooked just as I wanted and the chips yum . scrummy. It was interesting to note, this place is in the middle of nowhere really, and people... More

Beware !! Don't trust ANYTHING it says on the Hare & Hounds website. Eg they no longer do a weekday lunchtime/evening Menu Fixe. It's now called the Hare Bar & Grill...but it's basically a hugely overpriced gastropub with pretentious of grandeur. Their burger and chips at £13 is marginally better than McD or BK, but you get half a dozen... More

Staff good, meal very small and disappointing, steak very small, chips great not a ood deal for the money, 3x surf and turf plus 2 wines and 4 beers and cheese and biscuits £140.00 and not worth it. Very disappointing , we tried it after several months and noy good value for money

Discovered this gem while on a drive from Leigh. However itis now we rebranded The Hare. The building definitely stands out as it is an unusual Blue. Great car parking. Received a nice welcome and had a nice table on the deck. There is a nice outdoor area for enjoying the summer days. Service was efficient and quick as well... More
