Having lost our car in the recent storms we made several visits here whilst visiting the garage opposite. The pub is warm, cosy and welcoming with friendly staff. It's essentially pub grub but very well cooked and presented and our various meals; shepherds pie; pasta; chilli etc etc were all very good. There is good selection of wines, beers and ciders and they are dog friendly. A great place to visit after a country walk

We loved this little pub. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The beer garden is a lovely little sun trap where we could easily spend hours. We didn't eat, but the menu looked good. I would really recommend, especially if you are doing a New Forest walk as we were.

The Hare and Hounds is our local, and I suspect we've eaten there more than most who post a review.
It's a great pub. Pretty outside, comfy atmosphere inside, and super hosts and staff. Good choice of beers, good value wine, and great pub grub. Highly recommended.

Came to this pub for lunch after a long walk in the forest with our dog, we both opted for the burger as it was quick and easy for a cold day before returning home, top quality pub grub, service was good although the one barman was a bit swamped as he seemed to be on his own behind the bar (we did visit in the afternoon however) overall very enjoyable lunch and very accommodating to pooch.

Popped in here on the way back from visiting friends in nearby Wootton.
Easy to find on the road leaving Sway to Brockenhurst.
Plenty of parking adjacent to the pub.
Great buzz on entry and nice welcome from the bar staff. We ordered our drinks and meals at the bar and then chose a table. Various places off the bar area to sit. Some private.
Very rustic interior with low beamed ceiling. Lovely traditional feel.
Loads of locals so we took this as a good sign.
Good selection of draught beers as you would expect and some guest beers too. I suspect you could spend a full day here trying everyone and still leave missing a few.
My wife and I chose a curry and chilli con carne to eat. This arrive 15 minutes after we ordered and
both were piping hot - plates too. Plenty on the plate and tasty.
Thoroughly enjoyed of meals and felt that our food and drinks were well priced - unlike some gastropubs that charge £4-5 more per meal for the same basic food.
Will visit again and a big thank you to everyone at the Hare and Hounds.
