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.

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

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
