"We booked up here for my Sisters-in-law's wake. We had the £8.50 per-head option. We were well pleased with the food we had made for us and they did a gluten-free range for 2 of our guests. The staff were very nice and friendly we would go back there for a proper meal one day. Thanks for everything you have done for us."

"I stayed at the Hare and Hounds last night with my partner and I would recommend it to anyone. The food was spot on and was brought out quickly. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door to the moment we left. The price was very reasonable and would happily pay it again for the service and quality that we received."

May 2018

"We stayed the night after my cousins 50th birthday party. We had a great lunch and the catering was spot on! Staff couldn’t do enough for us. Lovely room and ensuite which is newly refurbished to a high standard by new owners and a hearty full English breakfast to top the stay off! Definitely recommend and planning a return visit soon."

"Hadn't eaten here in a very long time. Heard it was now under new management so booked for dinner. Lovely meal, good local beers. Steak was cooked perfectly. Lovely environment. Will definitely be returning."

April 2018

"We booked a surprise party for our parents in November 2017 for April 2018 prior to the change in management and when we found out of the change in February 2018, needless to say we were slightly worried. We met with Michael, the new owner and planned everything with him.

Everything on the night went perfectly, everyone had a great evening and our parents were so happy with everything! We had the hot food buffet and the food was delicious and I didn't hear anyone complain about anything the whole evening.

Thank you so much to everyone at the Hare and Hounds for a lovely evening had by all."

April 2018

"We all just wanted to thank you for the wake we held for Mum on Monday 26th of March. Lovely place, nice to have it virtually ourselves, polite staff and lovely food, hot and cold!! We were all very pleased how it went. Thanks again."

March 2018

"I was going to book this location for a largish group buffet meal but as I wasn’t sure on numbers I decided on the drinks and sit down meal option which Michael, the owner, was happy to start dinner service early for. Michael and his staff were warm and welcoming and we chatted to them throughout the afternoon/evening. The food was lovely and well priced and the service was brilliant, good selection of soft and alcoholic drinks for most tastes also. We regularly visit the area and will definitely be dropping in again. Thank you for accommodating us Michael and to your lovely staff."
