“Excellent Food, Excellent View”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

The food and atmosphere here are great. The view over to the east of Bath is truly amazing. The garden and patio get the sun all morning and most of the afternoon, so it's fantastic spot to enjoy your breakfast or lunch on sunny summer days.

“Great food & beautiful setting”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Have driven past this venue most Saturdays on the way into Bath. Decided to give it a try on a sunny Saturday lunchtime. What a find! The menu has a great selection and should cater for everyone. The menu shows meals suitable for coeliacs which was great as we both need gluten free. We decided to sit outside and told if we found it to hot our table we had booked would be kept for 20 minutes inside. The food was excellent and good size portions.
The car park was full but you can park on the road if necessary.
Will return again

“Beautiful Setting, Great Food”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

I went by recommendation with a friend. We had the burgers (Veggie and Beef). Well cooked and presented. Proportions are ample for those with a decent appetite. Reasonable prices and the view from the terrace is outstanding! ! If you're looking for an informal and pleasant family or friend get together this is the place to go!!

“Best fish and chips ever.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We visit and stay in Bath fequently.Most of our eating out is done in the city centre,but we felt like a change of venue this time,without having to take the car.Although we have stopped for the occasional drink in the Hare and Hounds, we had never eaten there
We took theNo 2 bus from the Centre of Bath and it stopped right outside.
We sat outside on the lovely, well kept terrace with stunning views.Everything on the menu looked very tempting, we chose fish and chips as it is something we rarely have to eat.They were stupendous.The bottle of Sauvignon Blanc was excellent,as was the salted caramel tart for pud.With this we had a glass of Pedro Ximinez dessert sherry,yummy.
We had lovely service from pleasant young staff.
We walked back to Bath through some interesting back roads,all downhill!!
We will certainly visit the Hare and Hounds on our next visit to Bath

“Incredibly friendly and helpful staff (and the food is wonderful, too!)”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

My family and I had the good fortune of staying at Beckford's Tower late in May. The Hare and Hounds was a quick trip down Lansdown Road. It was our first evening in Bath and we were feeling a bit overwhelmed. The view was gorgeous as we walked in, and we were seated immediately. Our server greeted us promptly, but gave us plenty of time to study the menu and make our choices. We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meal. The Hare and Hounds also offers free Wi-Fi. I know, I hate those people that get out their smart phones in a restaurant. We were having issues with the cellphone provider we were using while in the UK, the rental car had a flat tire, and were desperate for a way to get assistance. The manager not only overlooked our use of cellphones in the dining room, but offered us suggestions and advice. The following morning we were still struggling with technology. We stopped back by the Hare and the Hounds, and the manager was there again, offering us information and directions. He even refused to allow us to pay for the coffee we had ordered while availing ourselves of the Wi-Fi. The wonderful food is enough to enthusiastically recommend this establishment; the kindness and assistance we received while there deserves our heartfelt thanks.
