Service friendly and helpful. Wasn't rushed, even though people were waiting for tables. Food delicious, hot and plentiful. Made for a relaxing, enjoyable experience.

We chose The Hare for a special birthday lunch for 21 family and friends to celebrate the 90th birthday of my mother. We preordered our meals and we're not disappointed; they did every thing possible to make it a perfect day. Sensational food, attentive and friendly service from our designated host, Lee. Thank you very much.

Without sounding like an ambassador for... More

We were made to feel valued throughout our visit by our waitor Craig J, who really went above... More

Seated in a quiet spot at a circular table - so we could all see and share our talk. Necessary as a couple of our group are hard of hearing You can only book at this Inn if there are 6 or more of you. This eatery has a choice of small portions or standard portions with reasonable price differences.... More
