Bad review this time after a favourable review before. Went there for Sunday lunch but very disappointed as the beef was overcooked and the vegetables were rock hard (not even al dente). Service was good but seriously let down by the quality of the food. Also screaming kids running around unchecked and when we asked them to be quiet we... More

We ordered from the budget meal - quite a good selection - and we were promptly seen to. I and two friends had the Fish and Chips and peas and were surprised at how large the serving was as the meal was under £6..All nicely cooked and the batter on the fish was light and crunchy. Several friends ordered the... More

Lovely food and good value from the budget menu.Visited this pub on the way home as we were hungry and having our kitchen remodelled so couldn't eat at home. Pleasantly surprised with how good the food was.

We needed to go to the Hare & Hounds to arrange to use a room. Kieren was extremely helpful regarding this, also I caught my breathe and he was there with a glass of water without being asked. Jess and Trudie were perfect and professional and they were all very cheerful and polite. The food was excellent, and hot, looked... More

A nice dog friendly family pub with a great choice of menu. My wife had a really tasty chicken roast dinner. However, my burger was o.k but the bap a bit too dry. Please please please....let's get back to plates. The slate trend is so boring now and quite frankly rediculous. Friendly staff.

Not very inspiring menu, and I hate eating off slates. The food was good, but overpriced for what it was.

Thank you for your review however I am confused as we do not serve meals on slates but if you had large fish & chips that is served on a wooden board. More

Came here at about 845pm a week or 2 ago with a group of 9. We thought maybe we were too late for food but the bar staff and chefs out did themselves considering we were so late in! Meals were spot on (all of them) and the customer service was bang on the money! Thank you Hare and Hounds... More
