We picked this hotel at random for a 1 night stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary & boy were we rewarded. Great food , great beer & very friendly & helpful staff. Only 1 negative....bed was a little short for a tall guy. We will be back.

We held the wake here following my mothers funeral on 15-07-16. Everything was well organised and set up when we arrived. Staff were welcoming and friendly, served tea and coffee for us and the afternoon tea food selection was good. The pub is nicely decorated and set out, we were able to take over one side of the inside bar... More

Very welcoming and helpful lady behind the bar, very quick service and beautiful outside area to sit in the sun. Behind the bar was a reasonably priced too. Lovely pub to sit in the beer garden on a sunny day

I went to a wake at this pub, we were greeted with a warm welcome. Extremely clean and modern with a great outside covered space. The food was really good and I am now going to return to try out the carvery. The staff were lovely and nothing was to much trouble. I would highly recommend a visit to this... More

Very unimpressed with brie and cranberry wellington - straight out of microwave - over priced and over cooked. Not a very imaginative menu. This was a last minute booking as we unexpectedly had to take the dog with us. It was a plus that they allowed dogs.

The Hare and Hounds is one of those restaurants where booking in advance is required. With this in mind I called but was greeted with "There's nobody here who can help you; best phone back in an hour or so" With that behaviour I decided to go elsewhere. Deeply unimpressed to the extent I won't bother trying to go there... More

We have visited The Hare & Hounds previously and the food was superb. This time however the experience was nowhere near as good. The quality of the Sunday Carvery was very poor with a lot of undercooked food. The staff were very apologetic when we highlighted this and said that they were "having a few issues in the kitchen". Numerous... More

We were meeting some friends each time we visited this place . It has surprisingly absolutely mouth watering food. We have been here a few times and the meals were gorgeous each time .The steak was tender. the onion rings were succulent , i'd guess they were freshly made. We ate every morsel. The dinner it's self was very well... More
