Being vegetarian and one of us with a nut allergy, I called ahead to see if it would be a problem to accommodate our needs, especially as we hoped for just two courses of the Bertha Veggie four course meal. Not a problem said the staff and chef so we went today for lunch. The greeting by the male member of staff was warm and friendly as were the other staff we spoke to. We had to wait a while for the food but we guessed we would as it has to be smoked. But goodness me, was it worth waiting for? Oh yes it was. Everything we had was beautifully cooked and as we told the male serving us, it was the best vegetarian meal both of us had ever eaten out. We'd both fully recommend the HHH and can't wait to return. Thank you for such a lovely meal and friendly service.

Poor quality food. Good beer and service. The food was bland and microwave quality. The Barn is very nice but does not make up for the poor food. Very disappointing for a family Christmas get together Will not try again

Our second New Years Eve at The Hare & Hounds, although its been a couple of years since the last one! All the staff were most welcoming. We were treated to an excellent evening dinner and entertainment. The standard of food and service were second to none. Our room was tastefully decorated and comfortable with tea/coffee facilities (a must for my wife). Breakfast was excellent, not a "luke-warm" buffet like so many places nowadays. I rate this highly due to the very nice sausages served, clearly not cheap ones. Well done to the entire Hare and Hounds team, we will return.

Arriving here after a long hard day, the staff were welcoming and still managed to offer me food outside of restaurant hours, during a busy period, with the chef already finished for the day. The room was clean and had all I needed for my stay with an excellent breakfast. Will definitely be staying here again.

Visited with girl friends in first week in December, it was very busy as there was a party in the barn area with at least 40 plus people. With this mind our food was fairly good, hot but served very quickly due to busy party next door. Staff were really pleasant and welcoming but it all felt a little bit rushed and not as relaxed as we would have liked.

We loved our stay here. The building combines the cosiness of the old coaching inn with modern facilities and well appointed rooms. All the little details are well thought out, the staff attentive and service spot on. Both dinner and breakfast in the Barn restaurant were lovely; this modern extension to the old building was smart and comfortable. Overall we thought we had excellent value for money and will definitely go back.

average food, flat coke, tomato ketchup instead of sweet chilli sauce. other than that nice venue. staff tried hard. I felt things were a little slap dash. Although the other people in my party said they were happy with their food.

This pub/restaurant/hotel/wedding reception venue has a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere but with the possibility of two or more of the four hats available having to be worn at the same time. This can result in some stretching of staff who nearly always maintain a smile and a willingness to help. The pub grub menu is adequate and can at times be OK. Parking is easy.

We had a lovely one night stay here recently. We had a triple room modern, comfortable, warm and large enough. The hotel and the bar and restaurant area was decorated and felt very festive. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Our evening meal in the restaurant was very tasty. Nice atmosphere overall. The cooked breakfast perhaps a little on the small side. Some additional blankets in the wardrobe would be helpful. Cannot fault this excellent hotel and it is a great stopover for trips in the area.

This weekend we once again stayed at your lovely Hotel.4th year running. I'd just like to say what a fantastic time we all had. (All 20 of us!) The Christmas meal in the Barn was simply wonderful . All three courses prompt, hot and served by terrific staff. Also as a GF (special) person I was very well catered for. I especially appreciated the GF mincepies with coffee. Simply lovely. The Barn was stunning, a beautiful setting for our annual get together. Our room was beautiful as usual, warm and welcoming. We all thought the chocolates in each room, a thoughtful kind touch. Breakfast again was wonderful. A good variety to choose from. I enjoyed my full English immensely. Even the filter coffee was really good. Fresh and hot. Again charming attentive wait staff. We had the opportunity to speak to your manager Dave and again what a lovely man. I feel a very heartful thank you to everyone for making our Christmas weekend really special. And we have already rebooked for next year. Please pass on our thanks if you would to all the team. A very merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. Mike and Amanda Asquith.
