Last Friday Evening 4 of us (2 couples) met at the Hare for an evening meal. The Beer was very good, the service excellent - they try really hard - and the Food was OK, not particularly good, but quite edible. The ice cream was a disappointment and the fish in the fish and chips wasn't anything to get excited... More

The best pub! It has a really family feel and the food is amazing, the roast beef just melted in your mouth. I had my son's 18th in the room upstairs and I could not asked for better service and atmosphere! Highly recommended!

It,s Storm Doris and a Thursday, you would not expect too many people to venture far in this weather, but when we arrived at the Hare at Loddington, it was very busy. This was the first time we have been here for lunch and we were not disappointed, The lunchtime menu is full of unfussy dishes, well cooked and plentiful,... More

We booked for an evening with friends. We were warmly welcomed by the landlord when we arrived, and he took us to our table, gave us a wine list,and promptly took our order for drinks. It was a very nicely laid out restuarant, and the bar area was very charming. The waitress left the menus with us, to look through.... More

I met some friends for lunch at The Hare as it was recommended by some regulars. I booked a table with ease over the telephone a few days in advance and were impressed by the pub's ambience and the pleasant staff. We all ordered different food from the menu and all agreed that it was delicious. The desserts were also... More

A group of us go some half a dozen times a year for the quiz on Sunday nights. The welcome and hospitality is always superb. Simon is an excellent host and cannot do enough for his guests. The food is typical pub grub - always well prepared, appetising, tasty and plenty of it. You can go just for the quiz... More

Let's start with the good bits: nice flagstones in the bar area, the service was welcoming warm and swift. That's it, I'm afraid. Went to the Hare with colleagues, a belated Xmas lunch in January. The rooms are filled with non-descript, suburban furniture; the setting is verging on the depressing; a typical disease found in too many pubs. Food was... More
