This has got to be my favourite restaurant in the area. Great, well priced food together with a good pub atmosphere. Staff always on form, friendly & very helpful.
I wish we could have more like this in TWells.

Went to this pub / resturant for my sons birthday - we all had the roast - i had the roast beef with the extra pork ( + £1 ) . i thought this was good valve. But my Wife just had the roast beef, The Hare use a joint called Fore Rib, My wife`s was all fat and not much meat, it seems other dinners had the same problem that day, it was just pot luck. So we made the wattress aware of this and she said the meal would be removed from the bill, but it was not removed until we pointed it out when we went to pay at the bar.
One other point is, i know its just a pub, but the dress code of the staff serving the meal was quite poor, legging and a month eaten tee shirt in one case and a jumper full of white animal hair in other.

We regularly have a meal at The Hare. It is usually busy most days of the week, lunch and evening, which is a good sign. Don't expect 'haute cuisine', but it doesn't suffer from a regular pub disease (sometimes good, sometimes inedible). I have never not had a decent meal, so they're reliable on an average level. Wines are perefectly nice with a meal, but not exciting. A bit more choice in proper beers would be nice, particularly as Britain (with Belgium and Germany) is one of the three top beer countries. Service is friendly. They at least give the feeling of being happy to see you. Parking is often a problem, because it is so popular. You may have to walk 100 meters.
As always: a place one likes to go back to, but don't expect Michel Roux Jr to appear,

We usually go the Hare as the food and service is reliably good. Took some visiting friends there for dinner and were disappointed. Despite having a reservation for 8pm we were informed straight away of a delay of 40 mins in the kitchen - decided to wait and were given bread and olives to 'keep us going'. When we placed our order, 2/4 of the mains had sold out as had the wine we ordered. When the food arrived is was ok, not the normal standard though. Joy when the fire was put out towards the end of the evening and the whole room filled with smoke - all our clothes, hair etc smelt. The main criticism I had was that when asked how our evening was, I said my criticisms about the food, wine and fire to be told 'sorry about that, its just been one of those evenings'. Great!
All said and done, this was unusual for the Hare and we always recommend it to friends and will continue to do so. Just had to have a British moan!

The Hare is local for us and we eat here regularly. You'll have to go a long way to get a better pub meal than at the Hare. Excellent food, great choice, friendly staff and good atmosphere.
