Bank Holiday Crush

I should have realized that going out 'on spec' for a meal on a bank holiday, especially in the evening, was not a good idea. The restaurant was very busy, consequently it was not a good time to make any comments. We waited 10 minutes for a table and several popular items on the menu were no longer... read more

This was our second time eating at the Hare and we were certainly not disappointed. We received a warm welcome on arrival. I decided to go for the burger which I have to say was one of the best I've had. If you want to try somewhere new i can highly recommend it. Whether it's lunch or a evening meal... More

We visited the Hare on Saturday night and managed to get a table for four even though we hadn't booked and the restaurant was quite busy. The staff were very friendly and had good knowledge of their menu and offered their personal opinions. The complementary mini loaves of bread were delicious. We had a full 3 course each and have...

the hare is part of the pie and pint chain the menu is not wide but this tends to mean quality over quantity. Steaks are cooked to your requirement, fish portions are large and the in house burgers are great made from real beef. I eaten the calves liver many times again well cooked and complimented by real bubble and... More

We went here on Sunday lunchtime. Have not been for a while and I must question why, oh yes we used to go somewhere else that's not as good anymore. All of the meals were excellent. I had a summer roast which was half salad and half roast, sounds odd but it's very good. The roast potatoes were superb. We... More

We nipped in here for a spot of food after a long walk today (May Day) and were very pleasantly surprised. The staff and service are great, the menu is extensive and the food good. I ordered a halloumi and vegetable wrap, I was a bit disappointed with the tiny amount of halloumi however, it was very tasty. My wife... More

Called in late Sunday pm for a quick bite, but were put off by the prices. Typical faux 'Old English' pub style with pleasant decoration and friendly if not a little slow service, but with gastro pub prices. My wife who nearly always has some kind of seafood salad fanced the prawn, crayfish and smoked salmon salad which was only... More

This gastro-pub is a really nice place, and I highly recommend it after eating there with a friend. The decor and atmosphere of the restaurant is rustic, warm and comfortable. The service was excellent; we had a really friendly waitress who understood the importance of timing in terms of taking our orders and taking plates away. Never felt rushed or... More
