My wife and I go to the Hare quite regularly and have always found the food good and excellent value for money. We took friends yesterday for lunch and we had the best lunch we've ever had at the Hare. Their duck breast with pink peppercorn sauce is delicious. At busy times you may have to wait a bit but...

By chance we turned off toward Long Melford and came across The Hare. The staff were very friendly & helpful finding us an available table. The service was excellent and the food was too.... More

My wife and I called in at the "Hare" for lunch. It's a charming pub come restaurant that is probably older than we are and there aren't many places that can boast that since our hair has turned grey. The meal we knew would be more than acceptable because we have been visitors since the new owner have taken over... More

Went for lunch and the menu looked good with a number of Gluten Free choices on main courses. Food was good (Ham Egg & Chips, Cheeseburger & Slow Cooked Lamb). Food was hot but Lamb served on cold plate which is not good! Service was fine staff very polite and efficient.

Called in here with family. Table of 5. Ordered lunch. It was - average at best. Sausages and mash. No colour on the sausages. They were cooked but clear skinned. Potatoes cold and claggy. I did not taste any of the other food but all said it was average. It took a long time to arrive. Not really worth the... More

Food was good, excellent for the kids and adults alike. Beer garden in walled area with small activity area for the kids. Free wifi if you want that but all round would go back for a pub lunch. Staff were excellent and service was quick and professional.

Took my mum there for Mothers Day along with Hubbie and Billy (the dog). The first thing I would say that the pub decor is lovely. It's not "doggy" in the sense that the decor is shabby and suffers from too many dogs - quite the opposite, to look at it you wouldn't think that dogs were allowed although, of... More
