Nestled in the heart of the Kent countryside, The recently refurbished Hare and Hounds, Northbourne offers an exciting locally sourced menu, an excellent international wine list and expertly kept real ales.Built in 1628, the Hare & Hounds is situated in a small village between Dover, Deal, Sandwich & Canterbury. Northbourne is the Home of Lord Northbourne and family to whom the Queen mother was a regular visitor. All of our food is carefully prepared from fresh locally sourced ingredients in our new kitchen. Our chefs make every dish from scratch, and nothing is bought in pre-made or prepared: no shortcuts, and no compromises. Children’s portions of all meals are available at a reduced cost. Please ask for more information.
