Excellent dinner overlooking the surrounding fields - it really is as beautiful as the photo. The crab and prawn linguine was light, and packed with prawns; the stock was absolutely delicious, you wanted to mop up every drop. Friendly service too.

We went to The Hare for Sunday lunch again today. They don't take reservations unless you are a large party but we were promptly seated. We shared the chicken parfait as we know it's a large portion. The intention was to share a pudding after but the main course was more than enough. We both had the sirloin roast. The... More

First introduced to the Hare from the Cars and Coffee type events they hold on the first Saturday of every month over the summer.

All very good... More
