“Phenomenal Food!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Visited: 15/8/2012 - 11am (too eager to get there for the food!)

Oustanding service, amazing environment, and phenomenal food. My husband and I have been there every year for our anniversary for 5 years and every year it gets better and better. Amazing home-made sweets: the treacle pudding was out of this world. It makes you want to drive 3 hours to just go there and eat.
Every item of food on the plate was cooked to perfection, very generous portions which would put other establishments to shame - and for very cheap prices. The value for money almost makes me not want to go anywhere else as I will be comparing all the time!
Background music was lovely and the barman who served us was a lovely chap. We hope the chef will see this as we were unable to thank him personally as it had just started to get busy !

“Aways good”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We have visited the Hare and Hounds quite a few times over the years. The service is good, the ales are good and the food is good. So often when you visit somewhere and look forward to going back another time, when you do you find yourself disappointed. This hasn't happened with the Hare and Hounds.There is not much more that I can add. Just visit and find out for yourselves.

“Value for money”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Visited here yesterday The girls behind the bar were friendly and informative about the menu when I was trying to choose . All the plates that were coming out of the kitchen looked mouthwatering but my friend and I only wanted a light lunch and opted to share a ploughmans..........which was huge, it was served on what I traditionally know as a serving tray but used as a plate, on it was a mixed salad with a lovely dressing , coleslaw, 2 thick slices of ham, a huge portion of pate, 2 pickled onions, a baggette/butter a whole apple sliced and a huge bowl of chutney. It was more than enough for two people , all this for £7.70p ( you could have had a choice of cheeses)
It is a light and airy pub with lots of tables, split in to 3 areas and a 4th area which appearred to be for those who would prefer tea and cakes and light bites.There is a huge garden , and a fairly large carpark . It appears to be a very popular venue for locals and holiday visitors. It is also dog friendly.
The pub has a very good website where there is a sample of the menu, which will prove helpful when working out your budget.
It is definatly on my list of places to return to, where I will most certainly have a main meal and a homemade dessert !!! Cant wait.
