Although the pub is welcoming in being clean and tidy, and staff were pleasant, I would warn against coming here for high quality food although the beer was ok. I came with a group. I ordered a medium sirloin steak which came very rare, and this was after forty minutes of waiting. The side dishes were not impressive. After paying... More

I think the more negative reviews of this pub reflect a prior ownership. We've been coming here since 2015 and have found the staff friendly and the food much better than your average pub grub. Fresh ingredients and well thought through, changing menu. Booking in advance on Sunday's for lunch is normally required but they can squeeze into the bar... More

My wife's birthday meal, we wanted to try somewhere new so picked the Hare and Hounds from Google maps. What a find! Village location, warm and friendly atmosphere, excellent food and costs to suit most pockets. We had three courses, plus coffe and pre dinner drinks which worked out at about £35 per head. Plenty to eat, well presented and... More

We have frequented the Hard and Hounds following its change of ownership. The new owners always make us feel welcome and have done a great job to make the place feel homely, whilst introducing a great menu. We even held a 40th birthday party here and it went perfectly. Personally I prefer the quality of the food and the more... More

All produce is locally sourced lots of parking Restaurant has 3 areas for eating. Good is great but expect a couple to pay around 50-80 GBP for a 3 course meal. Book in advance as they book up fast. No rush service and the staff are very friendly.

How delightful to find a restaurant as good as this off the beaten track. Each course was a delight and the service impeccable. It is owned and run by a husband and wife team. The husband runs the kitchen and his wife is front of house. When we ate there on a Saturday night it was fully booked so I... More

I have been here both for food and a drink and both experiences have been very good. although on the expensive side the food is definitely worth it and the locals are very friendly if going for a drink and very accommodating.

Heard someone raving about this place so we tried for saturday lunch Nice starters,but not hard to make Main-fish pie with cheese on top. Topping wasnt even grilled on top to make it look appetising,probably just melted cheese via microwave(my assumption) Overall another average pub grub experience

We had my husband's 30th birthday meal here and I was thoroughly satisfied with the very tasty food, the attentive and cheerful staff and the wonderfully snug interior of this lovely country gastropub. We were even allowed to bring our dogs into a seperate dining area, which is something most pubs with restaurant areas don't allow in this part of... More
