“An excellent country pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

As a vegetarian eating out can be somewhat hit or miss but the Hare & Hounds has an excellent 'veggie' menu and a great oldie worldie country pub vibe, plus excellent ale. Have visited around 10 times now and have found the meals to be consistently good, too.

“I would never go to this pub again.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Dreadful. The male bar staff spend the whole time bellowing to each other and to the permanent bar flies including making lewd remarks about some female well within earshot of people sitting nearby. If you are not a regular, you are made to feel like a complete outsider and barely tolerated. In fact the whole experience was very unsettling. We will not be going again.

“A good country pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Not for the first time went to the Hare and Hounds for lunch with friends.We were not disappointed,This is a good country pub with a reasonaby priced, wide and varied menu. Nicely decorated and with a friendly staff making for a good overall ambience. Dog friendly with a good garden for children. It can get busy during the summer but is well worth a visit
