My partner booked a Christmas party for eight and paid a deposit. A friend, passing by, thought the pub had closed so we decided to check it out today. It had closed and the telephone is not being answered. The deposit is lost???? Thank you one and all for wrecking our Christmas. Obvious not very happy as it is too... More

It's a nice inside and the food is good. It's the kind of place I would recommend if you fancy popping out for a daytime meal with the family. It's also a great place if you just fancy a drink. The car park is quite small, I'm not sure if they have alternate parking elsewhere.

Had a great lunch here. Sausage onion and mushroom sandwich and a ham and tomato sandwich with chips. All was great, fresh crusty bread tasty ingredients and good potions. We shared a coconut mango and lime cheesecake which was divine. Lovely pint of local stout and very attentive bar staff. A good example a pub not trying too hard to... More

We picked this hotel at random for a 1 night stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary & boy were we rewarded. Great food , great beer & very friendly & helpful staff. Only 1 negative....bed was a little short for a tall guy. We will be back.

We held the wake here following my mothers funeral on 15-07-16. Everything was well organised and set up when we arrived. Staff were welcoming and friendly, served tea and coffee for us and the afternoon tea food selection was good. The pub is nicely decorated and set out, we were able to take over one side of the inside bar... More

Very welcoming and helpful lady behind the bar, very quick service and beautiful outside area to sit in the sun. Behind the bar was a reasonably priced too. Lovely pub to sit in the beer garden on a sunny day

The food was really good and I am now going to return to try out the carvery. The staff were lovely and nothing was to much trouble. I would highly recommend a visit to this... More

Very unimpressed with brie and cranberry wellington - straight out of microwave - over priced and over cooked. Not a very imaginative menu. This was a last minute booking as we unexpectedly had to take the dog with us. It was a plus that they allowed dogs.

The Hare and Hounds is one of those restaurants where booking in advance is required. With this in mind I called but was greeted with "There's nobody here who can help you; best phone back in an hour or so" With that behaviour I decided to go elsewhere. Deeply unimpressed to the extent I won't bother trying to go there... More
