I have been to the Hare several times now and each time have been very pleased with the food and the service. Sunday lunch menu is separate to mid week menu and is a very nice sunday lunch. Choice of meat, lovely roast pots and a large Yorkshire pud and selection of veg. Service is quick and pleasant. Lovely restaurant

Even on a busy evening, we were seated immediately, and had our food within minutes. Lovely staff, who, as we hadn't eaten the little loaf that comes with dinner, packaged it up so we could take it home! The food is pub food, but served well, hot and freshly cooked.

An hour waiting for our food then 30 minutes looking at empty plates. Only to have the water talk to us like we were keeping him waiting when the youngest of our group changed her mind on desert. Tried twice to talk to the manager about the service but he seemed to disappear when someone went to the bar to... More

First of all, this is a lovely pub with welcoming and friendly staff. However,the menu is a bit limited and is pub grub - absolutely fine if that is what you want. We waited over 40 minutes for our main courses and it was only when the waitress overheard us talking she informed us that ours were being plated up,... More

A real find just outside of Chelmsford. Its a pub yes, buts its a very nice pub. Completely table service and some lovely outside seating overlooking the countryside. The food is really delicious (get the pie!) and service perfect. They have their own cake display by the bar of freshly made, really different cakes which are beyond tempting, Toblerone cheesecake...

Visited for sunday lunch having previously stopped in for a drink and liking the look of the place. The pub has been refurbished in a lovely combination of old and modern. It was busy and bustling and the atmosphere was good. There was a wait for food, around 50 mins, but the polite and friendly staff came over without prompting... More

Our party of 8 enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch served by helpful staff in a lovely, relaxed pub in a pretty setting. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit and we shall certainly be returning. Thank you.

We come here every time we visit family in the area. The setting is very nice and cozy, while the patio gives you great views over the countryside. Always good food and service. Love it.
