The Running Hare is ideally situated at St David's Retail Park Ewloe just off the busy A494 from Chester to North Wales. We serve great pub food all day and our carvery is available 7 days a week 12pm until 9pm.There's no need to book, just turn up when you fancy trying one of our delicious dishes, cask ales or wines. We welcome all the family and have an indoor and outdoor children's play area, somewhere to keep the children entertained whilst you sit back and relax. Come along and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
