“Don't miss out on this one”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The new owners have slowly and professionally brought this once very poor standard pub diner up to an outstanding eatery. The staff have been hand picked to deliver sincere and friendly service and the chef has been hand picked to deliver excellent food - consistently well. We run a very successful Boutique Bed and Breakfast nearby - so it's in our interests to make sure our guests are not disappointed - we've sent over 90 guests their in the last 5 months and everyone has spoken very highly of their experience. Congrats to Jo Cussens and his team.

“Lovely lunch with fabulous views”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

En-route to Bath we decided to stop off at the Hare & Hounds, so glad we did, we were found a table with stunning views and ordered the Cod & Chips and a Burger with fries. Despite being extremely busy the service and staff was excellent and tentative to needs. The Cod was cooked perfectly and the Tartar sauce was very tasty. We shall be making a visit to the Horse and Hounds for an evening soon as we've been tempted with this visit.

“Delicious food, fab setting”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our second visit to the Hare and Hounds for Sunday lunch did not disappoint. Hard to choose from an excellent menu - we all loved our dishes ( the fish and chips are yummy) but regretted not going for a meal with a Yorkshire pudding.....they looked amazing. I know what I'll choose next time. I suggest booking at weekends, and ask for a table by the window - the view is just lovely.

“Lunch at the Hare and hounds”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

While the Main Menu dishes are superb and substantial those with a smaller appetite will find that the set lunch menu represents excellent value for money and food of an extremely high quality. Not only delicious but also slightly out of the ordinary. The venue as a whole is delightful and the refurbishment has lifted the "pub" out of the doldrums. The ever changing views as far as Salisbury Plain just add to an overall pleasant experience and when the weather improves the well maintained gardens will provide yet a further dining area. Service is discreet and friendly but don't expect a very quick meal. Each dish is cooked to order and this freshness adds to the appeal.

“Great food, good service, idyllic views - what more could you want - apart from a little sunshine”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

I took my wife for a birthday lunch - best sausage and mash ever she said and a lovely homemade burger and a wine that we left wanting to know where we could get a bottle. Will be back :0)
