    Lovely surroundings and beautiful inside, clean and tidy and staff very accommodating. 2 of our party of 5 ordered the fish and chips which was a very good portion for 1 and very tasty, 2 of us ordered the pork belly which was very tasty but unfortunately needed salt as was under seasoned and the portion was very small so felt hungry afterwards. 1 ordered the pasta which was a good portion and very tasty. 2 of the party ordered the chocolate brownie dessert and it was very good, and 1 ordered the treacle tart which unfortunately had a very hard pastry case difficult to cut through. Overall a good experience but could have been better and in my opinion the food is a little over priced for the standard and portions.

    We were regulars to the pub, in the past a few times a week. Since Juan, Lauren and Emma left, we haven’t enjoyed it as much and found the service to be hit and miss with all of the new students. Nathan and Hannah are always very lovely, but there has been too much staff turnover elsewhere. However, the lady that was working front of house last night was superb and clearly experienced. We felt welcome, looked after and attended. Following on, the young waitress (whom has served us before) was and always has been fantastic. A cut above the rest in my opinion. We will make the effort to start booking our usual table a couple of times a week again from now on. Many thanks

    Really like what they have done with the new decking and causal dining outside; makes the most of their wonderful view over Bath. The menu is relatively short but well executed - we had and enjoyed both the grilled aubergine and pork belly dishes. The ambience is lively and informal.

    Beautiful setting and busy establishment but overall very disappointed with the food on offer. The menu was very limited and had little by way of vegetarian or fish options. The pasta dish selected which catered for my vegetarian partner was inedible and subsequently turned back after an initial tasting. Truly dreadful plate of food. In fairness to the floor manager she did waive the cost of the dish selected and gave us a free drink by way of apology but it didn't really compensate for the poor quality of the food.

    Despite booking a table for Sunday lunch over a month ago for a long weekend in Bath, when we arrived we were shown to a table away from the main dining area in an empty conservatory. Staff seemed overrun and were unhelpful, advising all other tables had been reserved in advance! Left without dinning. Far better places to go in Bath with great food and helpful staff. Do yourself a favour and don’t bother with this place.

    Service was very very slow. It took us 45 minutes to get our drinks and our starters came out before our drinks did. The duck was very over cooked and chewy as well as being over salted- potatoes very over salted too. Appreciate they were short staffed but waits were too long and food was not satisfactory. We are not ones to complain and we thought about it a lot and decided not to in the end as we weren’t going to wait another hour for three duck breasts to be cooked. Duck breast is cooked to taste and this was not asked.

    For starters we waited 20 mins for someone to take our drink orders and the restaurant wasn’t even busy. If we hadn’t been in town as tourists, we would have gotten up and left. Dirty plates were on other tables, no one seemed to care about them. Once we finished with the sharing board (starter) nobody came to take it away, it was on the table up until we were half way through the main course. The scenery was breathtaking, the food was okay, but the service was very poor…

    Although a Wednesday evening it was really busy which accounts for the noise level but also shows the quality of the food. 2 of our party had fish and chips which were really fresh and tasty. All the food was of a very high standard and the staff were helpful and friendly. A really good evening with friends.

    The setting is lovely. Food a bit of a let down. Out of the party of four everyone thought the food was just ok. I think perhaps because everything was too salty and my salad had lots of raw onion in it which was hard to pick out. Maybe they was having an off day? The servers were very nice so and attentive.

    Hi Alan, I'm sorry that your experience with breakfast was disappointing this time around. We will work even harder to insure we meet the standards that you have grown accustomed to. My apologies for the lack of ketchup, we have had a few issues with suppliers who are struggling with staffing levels. As a result we sometimes don't receive everything we order. Kind regards, The Hare and Hounds Team

    Fantastic Sunday roast. We had a sharing roast which included all the meats cooked to perfection and all the trimmings were delicious. Limited options for non roast eaters but husband is now a convert to a roast. Son in law had a fabulous burger. Lots of crackling with the melting pork. We sat outside as there was more room for 5 of us . Views are stunning. Big shout out to the lovely staff. We will be back soon.

    We have been here before for family occasions first time for Sunday roast. We had the sharing platter which was nice but we felt overpriced. We like our vegetables to be hard but you couldn’t even put our fork in the carrots they were literally raw. We opted for 2 portions of pigs in blankets however for a party of 7 we didn’t all get one and that cost £8 extra. Would go again but not on a Sunday for roast.

    My vegetarian breakfast contained two vegetarian sausages and a pork sausage. Staff took away my breakfast but just popped all my vege food onto another plate! The sausages were cremated and dry, the spinach was the tiniest amount and my poached egg was solid and so over cooked. My friends eggs were also rock hard not soft My drink was completely forgotten and my friends flat white came in two completely different sized cups

    Gorgeous pub in a beautiful setting with telly friendly staff. Unfortunately our food was a bit disappointing as what we got on our plates was not quite what was described on the menu. We did bring this up with staff and they tried to rectify it but it was little late in terms of flavours being mixed already. We would go back as I’m sure the other food would be nice and the views from the gardens make it worth it.

    Student staff and our waiter said we could not taste the wine, said they did not have a certain sauce, when they did, and knew nothing about the wine list. Also took a long time for drinks to arrive when ordered in the middle of our meal. Food was good although steak was overpriced and I was not offered option of fries with meal when we saw another tables steak arrive with fries opposed to thick chips like chip shop style.

    Overall this was a very enjoyable occasion. The table was in the covered area outside which they had arranged because I had booked in advance and the views there are spectacular so the environment is fabulous. The service was excellent- everyone was very friendly and although we waited quite a while for our meal, we weren’t in a hurry and were happy with responses to our requests if something was needed. The service staff were very welcoming to our dogs as well. The food was good. My sisters really enjoyed the baked Camembert and Halloumi salad but I thought my Aubergine salad was a bit mean. The aubergine was tasty and well cooked but presented as steaks with the ends left on (the knives were too blunt to cut them off) but the kimchi salad and rice was literally a few mouthfuls. It compared poorly with the Camembert sharing board at roughly the same price. Desserts were lovely but the treacle tart was mainly pastry (the treacle had sunk) so again a bit unsatisfying. So, very tasty food but even though you don’t want to overeat at lunchtime, the helpings were, in some cases, on the small side for the price. Nevertheless, an enjoyable experience.

    Hi Clare, First of all I would like to say how happy I am to hear that you had such an enjoyable experience, that is, after all, the reason why we do this job! I am a little disappointed that we weren't able to give you a perfect lunch as a result of a few issues with some of the dishes. I have escalated these issues to the head chef and we will review everything you have said to try and iron out the kinks. We can't wait to have you back again so that we can improve on this!
