Went to Hare and Hound in Newbury as was visiting family member down there. The place looks really nice and there is plenty of parking spaces.
We went in and after a couple minute wait somebody showed up in reception and greeted us nicely. We received our keys along with Wi-Fi password and were told where to find our room. We went for the Cottage Double room, as on the photos it looked big and spacious, comparing to other rooms on the website. However, the room was still quite small. It had all the amenities and it was fairly clean.
We then went for a dinner to the restaurant and took advantage of the offer – Friday Grill, 2 courses for £16.50. We had the platter to share for starter and steak each for main. The food was delicious. Please bare in mind that you need to pay extra for sauces. We had a great sleep and the bed was very comfortable.
The breakfast was lovely – already included in the price. It was a full English breakfast and the bacon was delicious. You can help yourself to fruit, yoghurts, cereals, juices etc. Great value!
Overall, had a great stay in Hare and Hounds, however feel that the photos on the website are a bit misleading.
