The Hare and Hounds is a reasonable carvery, and you can rely on a reasonable meal. The recent make over improves things, but they are many better establishments out there. It is not remotely the number 1 in Devon, but perhaps I am missing something?

we visit the hare and hounds often and the staff are always accommodating and helpful, cant find a seat tell the staff they will always help. The carvery is great as shown in how busy the pub gets especially on a Sunday. only one problem the pub menu seems to never change as we go on a regular basis more choice would be nice and dont just rely on the carvery to attract people. Also like the fact you can take your dog in but find the taps bar to small would be nice if it could be extended into the haunts bar PLEASE

We stayed at the Caravan Club site, just a few hundred yards from the Hare & Hounds. We went on a cold Saturday evening and had a lovely carvery. Good meat and well cooked vegetables. The pub was busy with lots of people at the bar, but we didn't have to wait long to be served. Will definitely go back next time we stay at Putt's Corner.

We were staying locally with friends as we had come to Honiton to watch the tar barrels in Ottery,
we all decided to come to the Hare and Hounds for Sunday lunch, after phoning to book we were told that they where fully booked and to come in the afternoon as tables would then be available, we arrived mid-afternoon and found a table in the restaurant, overall the food was good, we all had carvery, vegetables were fresh and a good selection, the line is in a strange place to be in front of the tills and door which lead to being in other peoples way when they wanted to order!.

Once we finished our meal we went to look at the dessert cabinet as only myself and partner wanted one, as we were looking we could over hear what can only be described as a bad attitude followed by fowl language!! defiantly not the behavior you would expect from a family establishment by who i could only assume is the manager by the way she carried on marching around with a sour face!!!.

Lucky we did not bring any children and from this episode i don't think i would reccomend that you do as this behavior was awful.

Other that this the food we has was good but next time i think we will stick to the bar!!
