Visited the H&H on Sunday for a roast dinner. The beef was probably the best I've had in any pub lunch but the star of the show for me was the gravy - I believe gravy can make or break a dinner and this was so good I could have had a bowl of it on its own! Only 1... More

We visited last night and had one of the best burgers ever. Fantastic! Followed this up with a sticky toffee pudding and left absolutely stuffed! Food portions are really generous and delicious. Lovely real fire in the pub and real ale too. Very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

The staff are all excellent, very professional but also extremely welcoming. The pub had several customers in it, and also dogs are welcomed and looked after! Provided a lovely atmosphere. The food portions are HUGE! and delicious. Would recommend and will be back again as the food and the staff I cannot fault.

Visited on a cold, wet December day. We were greeted very pleasantly by the lady behind the bar. We only wanted light lunch and quickly decided on one mackerel pate and one onion soup. These were served promptly and efficiently and tasted delicious! The soup came with cheese and fresh bread. The pate with toast and some balsamic drizzled salad.... More

We had a Groupon voucher for 2 Burgers and 2 Beers. It is a lovely country pub with a very cosy, welcoming atmosphere. We were extremely surprised at the quality of the burgers. My husband had the beef and commented it was the best he had eaten in a very long time. I had the chicken burger, hardly a burger......TWO... More

Visited this lovely little country pub on Sunday....have been several times since my last review, but felt I had to comment on today's experience. I believe a new chef is in residence, and he's certainly lifted the bar.....we had superb roast dinners....succulent topside of beef and half a roast chicken, proper roast potatoes (why can't anywhere else get them right???),...

My wife and some friends and I visited the Hare & Hounds for a meal, we all had the H&H Burger, truly amazing, it was probably the best burger meal I have ever had. The service was fantastic, the staff were attentive to ensure everything was perfect. I would most definitely recommend this place to everyone. There is another establishment... More
