Great Place

I have had my eye on this place for quite sometime. It always looks very inviting when I pass by on my bike - usually freezing my bits off. Turned out to be just as inviting inside. Although it is an independent place it did seem to be similar to some of the chains such as Vintage Inns etc. I... read more

Very well situated in the Essex countryside in a picturesque location this restaurant has a good ambience served by friendly and helpful staff. A most filling "pie" meal preceded by lovely homemade bread and soup proved to be a very satisfying occasion.

We have visited the Hare a few times at weekends, evenings and lunch times. But, we are no means regulars. On this occasion we arrived mid-day and received a warm welcome. It was a good thing that we were early because by 13.50 hrs the place was very busy. We didn't know, but on Wednesday a bottle of wine is... More

This was the second time that we had visited The Hare for something to eat, and both times have been midweek. This time I decided to try something different, and went for the 3 or 5 bean chille, I can't remember exactly how many different beans, but was really impressed at just how nice this dish was. My wife had... More

This was our second visit here and we went on a Sunday. We rang beforehand but were told we couldn't book a table for less than 6 people but that we shouldn't have a problem getting a table - maybe we'd have a short wait at the bar. So we set off - and it's a half hour drive from... More

Very good for pies and a pint. They also do small portions as well which suited my wife as she finds the normal portions are a too big. This is a nice feature if you aren't a big eater or just fancy a lighter meal. The food, service and the beer was excellent.

The Hare has been consistently good whether for a meal and pint with a colleague or more of an occasion with family. The service is always brisk and particularly friendly. The menu is varied, but I particularly favour the beer battered haddock and the crumble! I would definitely recommend as the effort to get there is well worth it.
