    When we first arrived the table we got given from booking wasn’t great, right near the door and table was wobbly and quite a small table to be eating at. When I asked if their was another table available the guy was so helpful and seated us somewhere else but we only had 1 hour and 15 min as it was booked for someone else ( my only moan ) services was very good and food was very yummy. ( roast dinner pork ) drinks lovely and would 100 % recommend and return.

    My partner and I understood that going to a pub on a Sunday would be busy and loud, but we did not expect the chaos that we experienced. If you have the inkling that your pub will be overwhelmed with patrons, I feel that it might be best not to squeeze in anyone if they reality is them being pushed into a dark corner table directly adjacent to the bar. We were in the middle of people traffic, drinks deliveries, and shouting bartenders (as well as the (I presume) manager who was giving orders with a very raised voice from one side of the pub to the other). That being said, however, the food was delicious, and came out in a timely manner. The portions were generous, and the staff were attentive. I would recommend The Hare and Billet, despite the chaotic atmosphere, but perhaps, would suggest going on a week day instead.

    The Hare and BilletResponded todayHi, we really appreciate your feedback regarding your visit on Sunday. We're so pleased you enjoyed the food and service. We will pass your comments along to the chef and team. We're really sorry if you've been given an inadequate table, we would have been more than happy to find a more suitable one had you mentioned your uncomfort at the time. Please don't hesitate to come back again on a Sunday, or any other day. Kind regards, Anastasiya

    The food was absolutely delicious, the pub wasn't too busy. Service was great. They did include £1 donation to a charity without mentioning, and it is a bit pricey for a Sunday roast but it was definitely a very good one.

    Great pub with good food and service! The most disappointing thing was the fact that the pub removed the trio of meats Sunday lunch option due to a person complaining about the amount of calories in the dish which is now required by law. This seems crazy as there were numerous others asking for it on the day including myself, so the majority is being revoked a great dish due to the minority.

    We had a fabulous lunch on a table overlooking the heath which was bustling with cyclists about to set off on a London to Paris ride. The pub was busy but buzzing with the registration of the cyclists. Our food was amazing, a Camembert to share which was divine and our mains a club sandwich and chicken and chips were great too. The service was excellent, we were made to feel really looked after. An excellent choice for dog owners too.

    We hadn’t visited for a while and booked a table for dinner. We arrived 10 minutes early and our greeting was “you are early the table won’t be free till the hour”. This summed up the service. Most things were dropped on the table. We ordered a starter which on the menu didn’t contain ions but did on arrival. We told the servers this and they said they would tell the chef. It was very noisy. When the bill arrived. It was expensive and nothing taken off. Just overall poor. The food was ok

In regards to your food as you had finished the bruschetta we had assumed you enjoyed it therefore hadn’t taking it of your bill which we’d have been happy to do. We are sorry once again and maybe you’ll give us another chance in the future. Kind regards, Nathanial

    We are reasonably regular here because it’s worth returning to. This was a Saturday lunch so it was the regular a la carte, which is quality pub grub. We had the very tasty burgers. They do a kids version which is good value as it’s pretty much the same size as the adult burger. Sunday roasts are well worth trying too. Service is always friendly and quick. Good selection of beer on tap and a well stocked bar. Excellent as always. I’d advise booking.
