We all had a great meal at the Hare & Hounds. As we had book an early time slot we had the full attention of the waiter till other diners arrived around 7ish. The Barn is a great space for dining. We will definitely be going again.

A very popular venue so went for a midday meal when it was relatively quiet. A very clean and tidy dining room situated in the old barn. Staff were courteous and friendly. The food was home cooked and very tasty. Good value for the money.

On arrival we were shown to our table straight away. We were told of all the specials they had on that day and they took our drink order. The food was great and the service was brilliant. Definitely recommend it and we will be visiting again.

A lovely venue, we have eaten in The Barn before but not the main area of the pub, which was just as nice! Staff were very attentive and friendly.

A lovely green oak barn environment and excellent joviality from the the landlord makes dining here a true pleasure. It's not my first time so that says it is worth coming back. My party all had the same from the menu which I was confident would be excellent and it was.

We had a meal for four on a Saturday evening with friends. Three of the four our meals was excellent. The fourth a mushroom and spinach pasta was slightly disappointing as it needed much more seasoning and we had eaten our meals before extra side ordered arrived, slightly disappointing but didn't ruin meal. Always find the atmosphere very good,lovely clean environment and staff friendly. Prices reasonable and will use this eatery again no doubt.

We enjoyed a lovely meal matched with great service.
Our only critism is that the table we were sitting at seemed to be in a draught, so we needed to put on something warm. Not ideal when eating out.

My friend and I had a wonderful time at the Hare and Hounds - excellent service, speedy delivery of tasty food and very reasonably priced. Good to find a place that isn't fussy and expensive and understands the importance of friendly service.

Although the restaurant was very busy with lots of covers for Sunday lunch the staff still managed to provide us with excellent service. The food was very good and excellent value for money, we all said we would definitely go back there for a meal.

We had two good steaks, one very good pork dish, and one less good chewy venison. Service was very good and attentive, ambience quiet allowing easy conversation, with our meal fortunately finishing just as a large boisterous and noisy birthday party arrived preventing further conversation. Overall a good experience, and will go there again
