It's lovely at the Hare

I picked this place at random from Trip Advisor while searching for a place to hangout with a friend. We got there just before they served the last meal for the afternoon. We ordered drinks instead and it was cheap - compared to London. From the pictures you can see it's a beautiful place. Nice... read more

Saturday night. Busy. Staff pleasant & efficient. Nice place but pricey. £20 for a steak and another £3.50 for a side is a bit of a con. 4 of the 6 steaks we ordered had to be sent back - a well-done steak is not pink & fleshy @ bloody inside - so 2 people had finished their meal before... More

We meet up at The Hare on a regular basis for lunch. It is a very popular pub in lovely surroundings. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food is lovely and even with the small bites you get enough for a decent lunch. We have never had a bad visit and would thoroughly recommend.

Once again I was greeted with a smile and friendly attentive staff who were helpful and quick despite being under pressure. The food choice was good and Id recommend the smaller meals which are specifically provided for lunches. I enjoyed a small beef and beer pie, which was ample while talking with friends. The winter ambience of the log fire... More

Impromptu visit,very busy but the staff cleared a table and we sat down very quickly, excellent choice of traditional foods predominantly pies as the name of the company suggests, I went for the chicken, ham and leek and my partner the beef and ale, although comparatively expensive we were treated to a complimentary curried cauliflower soup and a fresh baked...

We've been here a few times since our daughter was born and overall have had a lovely experience. It's a really friendly pub with a great atmosphere as well as being children friendly! Food is lovely-the complimentary bread is amazing as well as the pies! The only downside was on our last visit we ordered a bottle of South African... More
