We visited the pub several times for evening drinks and we didnt feel on the first occasion very welcome. It was obvious the staff had a busy day and although it was about 9pm they didnt make us feel very welcome just having drinks. although we were staying nearby we gave this pub another chance and called again another evening....

As many of reviews suggest it's a great place to visit for a carvery. The parking can be busy there are 2 car parks and even they can get packed. Generally a good idea to book a table. Agree with previous review that it can be canteen style waiting for the carvery they could also do with 2 areas. The... More

Two of us had the carvery, and they said it was good, but another had steak that wasn't cooked as ordered, the vegetarian amongst us said his meal was no better than a Weatherspoon cheapie. The worst thing was, the flies. ...not the best thing in a restaurant, but not surprising as table felt sticky, and nothing seemed particularily clean.... More

As we found out, the Hare and Hounds takes mass catering to the extreme with its Sunday carvery and it is literally like being herded around an airport or queuing for school dinners. There are 2 slots for lunch on a Sunday 12.00 and 13.30. We were in the 12.00 and there was a sign on the table saying basically... More

Please try them you will not be... More

Come here all the time as an Omnivore, Vegetarian and now Vegan and love it every time! Great selections of meats and veg and they even provide doggy bags for left overs! Really love it! Loads of play areas outside, cosy old pub section (dog friendly) as well as a new extension (not dog friendly).

Very popular Sunday lunch venue. We booked the last table available for the 2pm sitting. The place was buzzing with many families & groups out for their carvery meal deal. I ordered a fish dish from the menu, the others bought carvery tickets. The crumbed plaice, salad & fries, arrived within 15 minutes, hot & fresh. Very good. My 2... More

We have visited on numerous occasions, usually with a large party. Yet again our most recent visit was as good as usual. Food was fantastic with the part ordering a mix from main menu and Carvery. Great service in letting us know when to go up for Carvery so we could all eat together. Sometimes a bit of a que... More

Disappointing visit in terms of food. Lasagna was a small portion with a single sheet of pasta, a half filled bowl of tasteless mince, no veg, and a big lump of fatty melted cheddar on the top - no cheese sauce. Husband's Panini was ok, tired looking salad on the side and both mains came with only a few chips... More
