Lovely food. Well priced. Great service (our waitress engaged our kids in conversation about Teen Titans which went down very well). Nice beer and wine. Amazing view. What’s not to like?

Was a bit surprised to get our coffees before our deserts and to be told this was normal unless we request different, but apart from that staff were friendly and the food was excellent

The Hare & Hounds

I'm really pleased you enjoyed yourselves! I'm sorry to hear that your coffees were quicker than the desserts, it can often be the case given that coffees are much quicker to make and the bar and dessert kitchen couldn't be much further away from each other so it can be difficult for us to co-ordinate this. I will take this feedback on board and try to infiltrate a system into our steps of service where we can guarantee desserts first! I hope to see you again!

After a really superb Boxing Day , when food, ambience we waited a long time for someone to take our drinks order , the food once ordered came reasonably quickly , but the attentiveness was lacking this time. That said it was a positive experience overall , and we will be back.

My apologies for the slower, less attentive service on this occasion. That is unusual for us and we always try our best to serve all our tables as efficiently as we can! We look forward to seeing you next time when I hope we can show you this was a one off!

8 of us attended this meal and it was very nice. Being a larger group we had a great window seat on Saturday evening.
Being my birthday we all had a free glass of prosecco and a free dessert each.
The starter and main course were very good but we felt the desserts were a little disappointing considering they would normally cost £6 - £7. The crumble that I had was the most disappointing of all, was simply a bowl of warm fruit with a tiny amount of crumble sprinkled on the top.

On the whole we would return and really enjoyed our evening.

The Hare & Hounds
Responded on 13 February 2020

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. I have reported the crumble comments to the kitchen team who are taking action to improve this. I'm really pleased you enjoyed the rest of the night and we look forward to seeing you on your return!

Always a favourite but unfortunately this time my roast beef was a bit grisly and a bit overcooked for my liking but that doesn’t change my opinion oh H&H, it’s definitely the best pub in Bath. Vx

Love Sunday lunch here! Always super yummy and stunning location. Only improvement is general service is a bit slow (don’t mind waiting for the food) more regarding drinks and getting bill/ paying bill. But small niggle on a great establishment!

A little over priced for what it was but very tasty ...chairs very uncomfortable, suggest you take a cushion. Staff were lovely and they had an array of gins which for me is always a plus point...will definitely go again.

The booking process was easy. The receptionist answering my call to say I was going to be late was courteous. The table request was reserved. Easy to hold a meeting in privacy in the corner past the kitchen. The service was great... not rushed to take orders... brought drinks and let us get on with our business. Menu varied and good value. Food served with pizzazz, hot and tasty.
Thank you. Ideal surroundings for us. ..... plus plenty of free Parking!!!

Every Sunday, if possible, we try and go here for our roast. It is soooo delish. The roast beef is my favourite but my husband also says the nut roast is superb too. I can sincerely say I wish I had my Christmas Day lunch here instead of the Olive Tree which was a total disappointing for £165 a head.
I usually ask to be seated in the main dining room and without fail they are courteous enough to grant our request. The staff is so lovely and never have a “face on them” which can literally ruin a dining experience. If I haven’t been there for awhile I offer long for their Sunday Roast. It’s the best in Bath for sure!!! X

our reservation was double booked, and we were asked to bring it forward from 1330 to 1300 h
our table was next to a window in the conservatory - both of us felt chilly throughout our meal
the roast chicken and beef were nice enough - the chicken could, however, have been more moist
the roast potatoes weren’t crisp, and the Yorkshire puddings were too crisp
almost as good as a home-cooked roast dinner, but without the effort, time, or washing up!
