Had lunch here and food was ok. Nothing flash but I think pub was gearing up for xmas day as no one came in apart from us for the couple of hours we were there. The decor was dated but in line with the theme of the name hare and hound. Sign in the ladies toilet was more suited for... More

We went for a roast dinner here, we were late lunchers but they serve here until 5pm. Huge portions and sooooo tasty! Crispy roast potatoes, cauli cheese, perfect roast beef, medium to rare and two big slices, parsnips, peas and carrots topped off with a tasty Yorkshire pudding, all home made. We sat in a cosy corner by the log... More

A traditional country pub with a good range of Real Ales - Oakham Citra was my choice. The menu was a large selection of Italian Tapas and our group of 10 had a good selection for lunch. All looked amazing and found to taste as good as they looked!

Although a slightly unusual menu for a village pub, pizzas and a small selection of Italian 'tapas' , we all enjoyed a fun evening and a great meal at the hare and hounds. The food was delicious and good value. What the pub lacks a bit is atmosphere , in that it was rather quiet but if you fancy a... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch and the Italian food was really nice and the service was friendly. Quaint country style pub where even the puppy comes to say hello.

Would recommend going here to anyone who is looking for amazing service and gorgeous food! I have been here to eat and also came to a wedding reception here. The staff were so polite and the service was absolutely amazing!

Picked the Hare and Hounds because of its dog friendliness. It was a Saturday lunch time and we were the only people in there. Fish and chips were great but no vinegar, whitebait was OK but the tartar sauce was 99% mayo with a tiny bit of gherkin. The menu was printed in 8pt font which was way too small... More

No kids so time for a dog walk and wine across to the Hare and Hounds, whilst the kids are away the parents will play! Lovely gourmet style burgers with thick chips and slaw, then a choc dessert..what's not to like? Changed owners since we've been.

The food was very good and the canneloni was spot on. The staff were very attentive and we were well looked after. My husband and I do like to eat early and it was unfortunate that we were the only customers until just before 8pm on a Friday night. It would really be a shame to lose another country pub,... More
