Food not as tasty or as good as other visits, staff seem to be more interest in messing around and chatting than serving

Whilst driving along we spotted this location and decided to take a chance and stop for lunch. Totally unaware what we were getting, we walked in and found the friendliest of greetings and the most relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The server was a charming gentleman and the service we received was second to none. The food was quick and tasted... More

Sunday lunch on a really nice sunny lawn. Cracking setting. Beef in the roast lunch was chewy but everything else was really well done. Certainly not a cheap option on food or drink. Not sure if I detected an edge in the landlords demeanour but the waitress was faultless. Nice spot

The Hare has a lovely classy pub atmosphere, with a small bar and several compartmentalised dining areas, so would be suitable for a business meal. The beer, food, and wine were all very good and was served politely and professionally. I have recommended to friends and family and will continue to do so.

My parents have dined at this restaurant previously and so it seemed the perfect place for my mum's birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived, all of us were made to feel special by the Landlord, Chris and the staff generally. The restaurant itself was warm and comfortable and the quality of the food was outstanding; 4 of us ate... More
