My wife and I wanted to walk the dogs for a couple of hours, and then have a good lunch on a Sunday. The Hare and Hounds gave us all that. I cannot give it an excellent, because it does not aspire to that!
My steak pie was filling and came promptly. The Black Sheep was well kept and did NOT cost £4.00 per pint. The staff were helpful and cheerful, and accommodated my wife's need for extra sugar with her tea.
I am sorry to read such extreme poor reports; perhaps the authors were unlucky, or had unrealistic expectations. If you are on foot or driving to walk, and then want to be fed and watered, do not be put off by the adverse reports.
I paid £21.00 for 2 main courses, 2 pints, and 2 pots of tea - good value
