Excellent Quality

All produce is locally sourced lots of parking Restaurant has 3 areas for eating. Good is great but expect a couple to pay around 50-80 GBP for a 3 course meal. Book in advance as they book up fast. No rush service and the staff are very friendly.

We have frequented the Hard and Hounds following its change of ownership. The new owners always make us feel welcome and have done a great job to make the place feel homely, whilst introducing a great menu. We even held a 40th birthday party here and it went perfectly. Personally I prefer the quality of the food and the more... More

How delightful to find a restaurant as good as this off the beaten track. Each course was a delight and the service impeccable. It is owned and run by a husband and wife team. The husband runs the kitchen and his wife is front of house. When we ate there on a Saturday night it was fully booked so I... More

I have been here both for food and a drink and both experiences have been very good. although on the expensive side the food is definitely worth it and the locals are very friendly if going for a drink and very accommodating.

Heard someone raving about this place so we tried for saturday lunch Nice starters,but not hard to make Main-fish pie with cheese on top. Topping wasnt even grilled on top to make it look appetising,probably just melted cheese via microwave(my assumption) Overall another average pub grub experience

We had my husband's 30th birthday meal here and I was thoroughly satisfied with the very tasty food, the attentive and cheerful staff and the wonderfully snug interior of this lovely country gastropub. We were even allowed to bring our dogs into a seperate dining area, which is something most pubs with restaurant areas don't allow in this part of... More

We now regularly pop out to the Hare & Hounds after discovering it last year. It has a good selection on the menu but the set menu is great value and more adventurous than you would usually expect to find.

Taken out for a treat is always nice, & as we didn't know where we were going to be taken it was a nice surprise to be going to the H&H. It had been a while so the new decor & atmosphere were appreciated, & from what I remember the staff just as welcoming & competent. We were a little... More
