I have eaten here a few times with friends and my partner and I agree it is expensive but you get what you pay for. The staff are always helpful and polite. The decor is stunning and the choice of drinks is vast! I liked it so much I chose to host my engagement party here, from the minute I... More

A good choice of dishes here for a Sunday lunch, and there is a comfortable covered garden area with tables. Service is good and helpful, and the pub seems well maintained and clean. A gratuity of almost 20% was added to our bill without asking and at the time of ORDERING the food (payment required before any food or service... More

We went to this pub last week after a very long time. We were happy to see they have spent money on renovations with the new play area for kids. You may want to check the area before letting your kids in there as we noticed quite a bit of glass on the floor!! We also waited over one hour... More

We waited over an hour wait for our food to come out, with 2 children under 7 that were starving. The fish and chips were overly oily, the cauliflower baji was also oily. The olive oil and balsamic was the worst I've had. Truly the worst lunch and worst £100 spent for 6 people. Never again.

I would apologise for the length of time it took us to get your order out to you. It is a very poor experience regardless of being told before hand. While it in no way excuses the poor wait times on food you experience that Sunday I can perhaps off you some explanation. Our pub is located right across the... More

The new look and feel to the outdoor areas is great and family friendly. The addition of a small play area is fantastic. We arrived on a Sunday at 1.30 and ordered food, the wait for 1 hour and 15 minutes!! We were told this before we ordered so it was OK but for some people this was way too... More

I'd like to start off by saying that I'm not a pub kind of girl, however the Hare and Hounds blew me away from the first time I set foot in there! Ever since myself and my family refer to it as "our favourite pub" and take family visitors there, so it's become somewhat of a tradition. At the beginning... More
