Wonderful Sunday roast and lovely staff! Will return!
Food was excellent but we were let down with horrendously poor service.
Last time I visited was some years ago. So with my daughters birthday and family decided to return.
This place has the WOW factor. The choice is many and the cuisine is to die for. You must try the burgers. Just the best. The service is brilliant. Well done to all, and those behind the scenes. We found our new eating place , see you soon.
a very pleasant lunch time with friend s..very tasty food..will be back again very soon
Had an excellent birthday lunch at the 'Boxing Hare' last Saturday: the service was good, food delicious. We would certainly recommend and hope to go again soon!
Our first visit since it was changed from Masons Arms - not much changed decor wise but food a marked improvement - not a radical menu but enjoyed the rabbit very much. Staff were very pleasant too - will definitely make another visit soon
Lovely lively pub. Landlady very good, staff polite. Food very good. Felt a bit hemmed in around our table. Took a few attempts to attract staff attention when needing more drinks. Will go again.
Nice service but could be more attentive. Waited for our table without being told when it was ready.... it had in fact been ready for half an hour. I've eaten every place from a Marrakech street kitchen to Michelin Stars in Paris to outlandish cuisine in LA... but always - you tell the customer when the table is ready.
Food - not bad. Couple nice elements - a lovely Halibut and creative open lasagne. Nice starter in Filo parcels but a rather lacklustre crab mayonnaise. With this sort of place id be looking for a crab leg cooked nicely and served more attractively ...
Decent wine - had a nice white Cuvée Jean-Paul Blanc, which was recommended to us. I thought it'd be a rather bland lemon affair but actually was not a bad substitute for a Pouilly Fume.
I'd go again - but as a place that's promoting itself as fine dining, the service and food need to come up one notch. Not to say they are bad - far from it - but my expectations would be just that touch "better". A good start with the new owners.
Fantastic food all homemade. Wonderful Sunday lunch...the ‘best’ roast potatoes I’ve ever had. The desserts are divine.
This I see the second time we have visited the Boxing hare it is fantastic
Highly recommended for beautiful food, lovely venue and exceptional service. Stacey couldn't do enough for us and was so kind and considerate with our children. We will come back again and again!
The waitresses were very polite and good at there job,food served with a smile and tasty
We booked on a whim to try the place out, what a find. Welcoming, friendly hosts and staff. Warm and comfortable atmosphere, great food and good Guinness as my husband will vouch for. Will definitely be going again.
Thank you for a lovely evening.
A very enjoyable dinner. Very welcoming and friendly service. The soufflé and steak were quite excellent, the halibut was a little over cooked (hence 4 stars) but the overall dish was delicious. Wine was excellent and desserts lovely. We have already booked to return
This would have been a 5 star but for the wait for the children, the youngest was so tired that she fell asleep on her mum's lap. Too long for children . Waited a long time for orders to be taken & at everything that was needed .
We occasionally ate at The Mason's Arms and wanted to try The Boxing Hare as somewhere to dine with friends. We booked lunch for 12:30 and had a pleasant greeting when we arrived. We had thought to go for the set menu, but on seeing the extensive a la carte menu, we settled for that. My wife enjoyed the cod, which was really well cooked and delicious. I had the pave of beef, which was sooo tasty and cooked to perfection.
While we were waiting for our main courses we enjoyed some olives and cold meats. These were both nicely presented and some home baked warm bread was offered at no extra charge.
The service during our stay was pleasant and efficient at all times. We will certainly be returning. The Boxing Hare proved a great experience.
Excellent food from a very extensive and imaginative menu. Excellent service from Emma who worked very hard and made sure all went smoothly. We took friends who were also very impressed and we all agreed we would return.
First time at the boxing hare. Have and will recommend to others. Excellent food and service. Staff very good. Top marks.
Lovely Sunday lunch with excellent locally sourced ingredients. Very good beef and delicious potatoes and excellent cauliflower cheese. We intend to return.
Rather disappointing after the early rave reviews of this newly reopened gastro pub. The food served to the others in our party was good, but my bavette steak was very tough. On the plus side the restaurant did not charge for it. Service was very slow and they did not have enough waiting staff for a very busy Saturday night. We would all give it another try, but at lunchtime.
We were given a warm welcome and the service was efficient and friendly throughout. The food was excellent.
Puddings were outstanding. Fish & Chips excellent, Burger disappointing. Set menu had no alternatives. We felt that families with children would find it unsuitable, which given its position on a main road, might be a disadvantage. It was clear that they were seeking a more upmarket feel.
Very welcoming into comfortable surroundings. Attentive staff. Interesting menu. Food we had was excellent and locally sourced where possible. Will definitely be returning as we live locally and will recommend to friends.
A very enjoyable place to be after so many years of just an average pub.the transformation is wonderful.
Stacey is a wonderful host and visits your table often to ensure all is well.
The food is absolutely excellant with an extensive offering.
My only offer of critiscism is the waiting staff are very slow and seem a little vague, otherwise, most enjoyable and will keep coming back.....
Beautiful food and excellent service. Nicely spaced dining area.
Wonderful food and surroundings.Staff very friendly and gave excellent service.Will certainly recommend The Boxing Hare.
Booked online which did worry us slightly, but they knew all about us when we arrived. Service was really good. We did have slight hickups with the food and drink orders but they were very apologetic and rectified it very quickly leaving the wrong starter for us to enjoy free of charge. The food was delicious. The scollop starter and the smoked haddock with mustard sauce were fabulous. It wasnt that busy but that probably suited the rather exuberant christmas spirits of our group but we were made to feel most welcome and not once encourange that it was really time we left. I am sure we will be back.
Lovely family meal at the Boxing Hare. Very welcoming, friendly and attentive service. Great menu with plenty to choose from, everyone happy with their food. Nice ambience and interior, with room for a drink in the bar area next to the fireplace. Would recommend and visit again.
Lovely food and excellent service. Staff friendly and helpful.
This was my first visit to the Boxing Hare and I will certainly be going back again. Great menu and really nice atmosphere.
Where to start... great welcome, extensive menu with too many great options. Cosy fire on a cold evening. Excellent food cooked to perfection. We had the cave aged cheddar cheese soufflé followed by venison. Can’t wait to go back to try more of the menu. Thank you for an excellent evening.
First time visiting since new owners, will not be the last
Excellent food, and the vegetarian option was delicious (they're usually bland). Music was a bit too loud. It would have been better with none.
Took the time to really look after a single female diner. Thanks.
Just excellent in every way and what fabulous hosts.. see you again soon
Delicious, friendly service. Far better than previous owners.
Varied menu and quality food.
Surprised how low the bill was! Will visit the again for sure!
Nice place, friendly service and good food. Good portions and reasonable prices.
Food and service very good well worth the drive from Cambridge. For us it's a good meeting place between Cambridge and Penarth where my brother lives.
Passed this place many times, which is a halfway house on family visits. Booked it for a Sunday Lunch which was excellent. Very good extensive menu. Cant wait for an opportunity to go there again.
Fabulous setting and surroundings. Service was superb. Two ladies that hosted were amazing. Definitely worth a visit. Highly recommended
