We walked 6 miles in the pouring rain after a recommendation for lunch and were not disappointed. On a Wednesday, off season, the resteraunt had a full carvery, roaring fires and was fully staffed. The majority of the clientele were local, (which always says a lot), and we had a wonderful welcome. We chose to have a light lunch; a... More

We went here for a carvery the meat was a huge amount and very yummy. You get to pay before you sit down and have a lovely drink and then go up for your carvery lots of vegetable options and very comfortable.

This is the nicest carvery I have ever had. I don't go here often but those special occasions that I have, I have never been disappointed. Just writing this review makes me want to go back again soon. Simply delicious and a lovely country pub. Perfect for families and couples. Looking forward to my next visit!

If its a carvery on a Sunday you fancy then look no further than the Hare and Hounds at Putts Corner. A choice of 4 delicious meats and a plethora of fresh veg, not forgetting a Yorkshire pudding and thick tasty gravy poured over the top. Its so yummy. Give it a try when you are next in the area...

Amazingly busy for a Wednesday lunchtime, booking essential , very good home cooked food . Excellent desert choices , with good sized portions , £5 each . Plenty of parking with easy access. A little noisy in the extension part , with the high ceilings the noise with every one talking echoes a loud atmosphere . Exelent sea views towards... More

Every time we visit, we have found the staff great, lovely food and been very relaxed. Proper English pub and very good prices. A young member of staff was serving us as well as running the bar when we dropped in the other day. Very sociable, very helpful and very efficient. Didn't get his name, I wish I did as... More

Came here last week as we are staying nearby, and everything was explained to us about the carvery and menu. We were shown to a table and then you pay at the bar for whatever you want. We all decided on the carvery ( slightly cheaper for the seniors' rate) and as I am vegetarian they brought me a lovely... More

We were given a very friendly welcome, with all staff putting themselves out. It's great to get such a welcome and appreciation of custom. Unfortunately the food was just average. The carvery wasn't on, but we'd have selected from the dinner menu anyway. While the food was okay it wasn't anything special, just average. The ale wasn't great. Both the... More
