This pub has a large and inviting menu. The food is very good and good value. There is always a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The garden is large and great for warm days - especially with the live music events! A great local with a warm welcome.

The welcome is warm, the beer excellent and the food even better. There is a very extensive menu ranging from normal pub food to the exotic and it's all freshly prepared to a very high standard. Book ahead, it gets busy and it's worth the wait.

If you want great food with plenty of choice in a good old English Pub with excellent landlord/landlady and staff, then The Hare & Hounds is the place to go if you're anywhere near Andover. We always highly recommend it to any visitors and friends. Always perfect, never a let-down. Best pub in miles.

During a recent stay in the Andover area, we were looking for a nice pub to eat at one Saturday evening. Easier said than done during a good British summer. The Hare and Hounds was actually not number one on the list, but the first pub we went to was fully booked. This turned out to be a blessing in... More

The Hare and Hounds delivers consistently good pub food. The roasts are particularly excellent. The size of the menu is concerning but even though the food on a menu this big must come from a freezer it is still very good. The staff are universally friendly and helpful and always have been over many years. They do however let themselves... More
