i absolutely love this place! Food is great, service is fantastic. You can so tell they use good quality ingredients. I would go here all the time if I could. It is expensive but I don't mind paying the money when the food is soo nice! My only criticism is that there is no high chairs for children. - It... More

We were a party of 10 for Sunday lunch so most of us ordered in advance. The pub opened early for us, we were greeted as we walked in and we completed the order as our drinks were poured. Our meals came as ordered and without a hitch and the food was excellent with the service being attentive, slick, and... More

Heard some great things about this place and was not disappointed. Many places take the easy option when it comes to Sunday dinner and serve up frozen or pre-prepared processed food. Not the Hare and Hounds. My partner and the in-laws were treated to honest pub grub prepared and presented in well maintained surroundings. The atmosphere was good, the pub... More

What a great find this was as new residents of Andover. Tucked away in the countryside just outside the Town of Andover we found this lovely Gastro Pub. The food was 5 star and a huge menu from mussels to venison and all beautifully presented and tasting delicious. Desserts equally gorgeous. It's not cheap but well worth the money, a... More

Visited with friends in a large group. A very warm welcome received. A wide ranging menu written on chalk board - many lovely dishes to choose from to suit all tastes. This is not a cheep meal option but worth every penny and very good value. Meals came with separate veg and there was more than enough for all of... More

We revisited this gastro pub for a family birthday. Food was very good but found the veg served with it to be very small servings for what you pay and the Chef should really try his veg before he serves it. The creamy garlic mash has no seasoning at all.
