The breakfast was a bit disappointing. The fried eggs were burnt on the bottom, the sausage was over cooked and the muffin with the eggs Florentine was very tasteless and doughy. Not enough Hollandaise sauce.

The Hare & Hounds has a magnificent location with amazing views. The pub was very busy when we visited so the service was slow ..but courteous. The food could have been better- the risotto was overcooked ( so stodgy) and think this was probably down to the volume of dishes going through the kitchen.

The view was very nice, and the staff service were very good. The beef burger was very good, but not the steaks and fish &chips meals.

We would visit again to eat pizza in the bar and enjoy the view.

We had booked in for lunch and sat out on the veranda. The food, and discretely attentive service were excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment and, when in the area, we will visit again.

Visited on Wednesday lunchtime and ate outside in beautiful sunshine and with glorious views. Food was excellent, and service was friendly and efficient. The tomato tart tatin starter was almost enough to make me return in its own right! My friends enjoyed the pork belly, and salad nicoise mains. And although we didn't bring a pooch with us we enjoyed seeing how welcome they were made by the serving staff. We really appreciated being able to socialise in a safe environment with high standards of hospitality and very much hope that sensible distancing and masking while moving around will continue after July 19th so that we can continue to visit.

Thanks for the great rating! Sorry about the toilets- we will make sure our team keep better on top of toilet checks when super busy- unfortunately we were very short staffed when you visited due to team isolations so this may of not been prioritised. Will feed this back.

Food was well presented and staff were attentive. Pork belly dish wasn’t particularly hot and tough on top and somewhat dry meat. Mash was quite dry. Could have done with more gravy. For £17.50 it was an expensive dish and not the best. Burger and deserts were ok but again expensive desert for portion.

I was pleased to see our FOH team were attentive during your visit and it is a shame that the food quality issues were not rectified at the time. Should you wish to discuss directly, please feel free to email us and one of my management team can get to the root of the issues. Best Wishes, Hannah Liquorish General Manager
