We have been going to The Hare and Hounds for many years and were very disappointed to learn it had deteriorated after the owners Jane and Jago had left for the John O'Gaunt in Sutton. However reading the updates from recent diners we decided to lunch here today, June 25th. Everything was lovely. The welcome, the decor, tables beautifully laid and the whole atmosphere very pleasant. The menu is short but something for everyone. We ordered olives and two soft drinks while we decided what to have which was a risotto for my partner and a terrine for myself for starters and sausages and mash and pork belly as main causes. All were beautifully cooked and presented served by two young, smiling waitresses. Yes, The Hare and Hounds has had it's problems since Christmas due to the succession of tenants the brewery deemed fit to put in there, but now all that has changed and the new tenants are superb. Go and enjoy, once again, this lovely country pub/restaurant and spread the word just how good it now is.

Was recently visiting the Shuttleworth Collection @ Old Warden Aerodrome. Didn't fancy the food at the café there. The aircraft cpllectionmay be world class but the food certainly wasn't. So stopped by at the Hare & Hounds in the nearby village of Old warden instead. Very glad I did. All 3 courses were excellent. Delicious sardines with tapenade, excellent smoked haddock risotto and scrummy chocolate tart to finish. Excellent cappuccino as well. The new owners Emma & Ben have done a very good job renovating the place. Very nice loo! Seeing they've only been open 2 weeks they are doing an excellent job. I can only recommend that Shuttleworth fire their restaurant manager and have a talk to Emma and Ben for a few tips.

The Hare and Hounds is now back on its feet after a very lean time. The new licencees have made it a very welcoming place with first class food and drinks at reasonable prices. It is as good, if not better, than pre January 2014. We had great service from a lady called Rhea and nothing was too much trouble. Well done! One small downside was the' smokers' huddled in the main entrance porch but I am sure that this will be sorted out in sue course (please).
