“Wonderful Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I have just been to the Hare and Hounds in Bath for Lunch with my husband and another married couple, it was amazing! The menu was varied and interesting, my friends husband is vegetarian and he was happy with the vegetarian selection. The staff was very good, they were there when we wanted them and left us when we were talking. It was a wonderful sunny day and the views from the terrace over Bath was fantastic. The food was a little on the expensive side but I would definitely go there again and would recommend The Hare & Hounds to everyone.

“Great food & great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had lunch at The Hare & Hounds. It was a beautiful day and we ate outside. The food, service and views were amazing. So much so we returned for an evening meal, which was equally as great. Thank you very much Hare & Hounds :)

“Beautiful Surroundings, Simple Decor, Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

The views help make this a lovely place to lunch. Impromptu find after visiting Bath Spa university and how lucky were we? Staff pleasant, food good and although just a tad more costly than expected, we would pay again it is definitely worth a revisit.

“Come when it's sunny for the view, but only for the view”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

The best thing about this place is the fantastic building and the even more astounding view. Make sure you come here when the weather's good and you can get the benefit of it. Otherwise just come for coffee during the week and outside main meal service.

Why? Because the food is only mediocre at best, which they would get away with if it was a third the price. Service is also glacially slow. Don't for goodness sake come in here hungry, or even worse, as we have done, with hungry kids. When it's busy you need to allow serious amounts of time, even for starters - we've waited up to an hour more than once.

It's a shame really as the people who work here are lovely and the location is great. In many ways this makes it all the more disappointing. This killer combination of indifferent food, monumentally slow service and prices that would be far too high even without these is a shame. Without it it would become a regular and much loved haunt. As it is, we'll leave it for sunny days when we are in no rush and not especially hungry (and someone else is paying!).
