We were staying at the nearby village of South Stainsby and was recommended a nice 45 minute walk to Burton Leonard so we decided to book a table here for 6pm on Saturday evening. We were quickly seated by a friendly lady who took our orders and kindly helped out my husband with his hayfever that had flared up on... More

My wife bought me here for Father's Day meal. We had already been to somewhere busy and loud in the morning so wanted a nice little pub to enjoy a meal in. That's what we got. The food was amazing. I had the pink sirloin roast. Was incredible and portions really good. The service was brilliant and we really felt... More

The landlady (Amy, I think?) was great, very pleasant and helpful. They made me an off -menu veggie sandwhich which was delicious and my boyfriend had a... More

It was a while since we had visited the Hare and Hounds for Sunday lunch, so we were curious as to whether it was still as good as when Rob himself was presiding over the kitchen. My prawn & crayfish tail cocktail was as expected and my husband's pate drew no adverse comment. The roast beef was delicious, thickly sliced... More

A pub full of character, but lacked welcoming atmosphere. My husband and I went on Saturday night with another couple who had been once or twice before and said that it was 'all right' - if you couldn't get in anywhere else you could always get in at The Hare and Hounds. That should have told us something. For a... More

Dropped in for a small lunch in middle of a 7 mile walk starting from Brearton. Timothy Taylor's Landlord on offer - excellent! Soup out of this world, mushroom, generous helping, followed by plum crumble and super custard .... still managed to finish our walk, since you enquire.
