I know its not peak season in the Lake District but it was a sparse crowd at 1pm and remained so throughout our stay. The specials menu had pheasant on it which means my personal rule of have the game applied. My friends ordered pork and burger respectively and we had a good read of the papers while waiting.

Went there last night with our 5 year old granddaughter. We had an amazing meal which we all enjoyed. A small misunderstanding with the menu was handled with courtesy and did not detract from a lovely evening. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the menu is so tempting it's hard to choose! Well done to everyone at this lovely... More

We have eaten at the Hare & Hounds several times over the years. It's a lovely country pub providing good pub grub - nothing fancy but good reliable traditional country food. Stout portion sizes - you won't leave hungry! They always have some well kept real ales on the bar. It's always cosy, slightly rugged - one feels very welcomed,... More

We enjoyed a very tasty meal here. Portions were generous and drinks include a good gin menu and some great beers. Steak & Ale pie was excellent. Disappointed that there were not more people there.

An enjoyable meal perhaps a little spoilt by limitations on the menu which was reduced by the absence of Guinea fowl, pork, lamb and no specials for the evening. Having said that the fish and chips and steak pie were excellent

Have been here many times and food us always of good quality. The staff, as always were very friendly and helpful. The food today was delicious but I have to say that the Chick Pea Dahl, although very nice, is massively over priced £13.50 taking into context the ingredients and portion size, when compared with the steak pie that my...
