This pub ceased being a while back - it then became an Italian restaurant La Frasca which opened for approx. 6 months, that too has now closed. Building remains empty - watch this space.

Just so that folk know, the H&H closed last night. It is, we understand, reopening under new ownership at the end of November as an Italian restaurant. We popped in last night and had a last drink, indeed it turned out that my Harveys was literally the last pint pulled! Commemorative photo attached... What an enormous shame for those of... More

We visited this pub after looking on its website. It boasted of a wide choice of foods and drinks which attracted us. However on arrival there was only one beer on tap, all others were empty and no Coke or cola of any description. When we looked at the food menu it was a much smaller choice than on the... More

Transformed from a quirky, eclectic, welcoming pub with a roaring log fire to a sterile, souless, run-of-the-mill average hostelry with no fire, no ambience and no customers. We arrived at 7:00pm for dinner with friends to find the place completely empty with no atmosphere - OK, we thought, it will get busier and eventually a few people arrived but still... More

Came here with my partner in August and had one of the worst meals in a long time. We live in the area so decided to pop back for a drink and give it another go. When i asked if we could sit outside, the barman looked at me like i was crazy. He then told me they had no... More

We had always loved the Hare and Hounds, particularly its cosy eclectic decor, through its good pub phase, its 'foodie' phase but its bland, unimaginative phase with its cold 'diner-style' interior doesn't appeal. Traditionally, the fires used to be lit, the seats mismatched, the art was quirky and the atmosphere was warm. Tonight's meal was average at best. It was... More

Dropped in here with my parents to check out the menu as we intended to book for dinner during their visit to me. What a shame, its quirky heart has gone, its now all red leather and uncomfortable leather square stools. Previous to this my Mum and I had been there on a number of occasions and enjoyed the sofa...

The Hare and Hounds is no more. Now it's the Hare Grill. And it's lost its soul. This was a rare, glittering star in a wasteland of dull food and unimaginative interiors. But the H&H had it a charming bohemian interior and a food that you'd struggle to beat inside of a 20 mile radius. But all the wit and... More

We went for a lunch here in the newly opened 'Hare steakhouse'. The food was slow, the chunky chips undercooked, they had no mayonnaise and the salt and pepper were in open finger pots on the table, nasty! Probably one of the worst red wines i have ever drunk aswell. Hopefully just teething problems as it is newly opened.. Would... More
