i went here a few years ago with my boyfriend and his family - at that time we'd had an absolutely brilliant meal which had stuck in our minds. we decided it was time to go again, and i must say i was very disappointed. what struck me initially was how expensive the food is, especially for something that is...

After an utterly disastrous visit to the H&H a couple of months back, I am happy to say that the new owners have turned the pub around and it is back to serving great food. What a relief!

New decor, nice ambience, good food, friendly service. Vegetarian options were tasty. My companion chose a small sharing starter for his main course and thought that the large version had been supplied by mistake - no, the small version was more than ample. My red Thai fish curry had flavour, but lacked the expected zing; perhaps I should have asked... More

This place was excellent until January 2014 when it changed hands. As the pub is in Old Warden village, which is over three miles from Biggleswade, please see 'Hare and Hounds, Old Warden' here in Trip Advisor to get the full story. Please be warned, it has changed out of all recognition.
