25th October 2005-2015!

Our privately owned Coaching Hotel, located on the outskirts of Newbury, has continued to offer bed & breakfast and a warm welcoming bar & restaurant in Newbury for over 250 years.
 
Since 2005 the inn has been family owned and run by Jonathan & Jean Nelsey. During this time substantial investment has transformed “The Hare” into a modern hotel, restaurant & bar, whilst retaining its unique olde world charm.


Our modern quality accommodation of 30 en suite bedrooms is found both in the main Inn and around our gardens, and extensive free car park.
 

Our restaurant and bar retain the charm of our hotel, and we are delighted to introduce "The Barn", our purpose built restaurant and wedding venue which opened in January 2015.

Visiting Newbury, Hungerford, or West Berkshire, for business or leisure, you will be hard pressed to find a friendlier welcome. Ideal for Highclere Castle, yes "Downton Abbey" is 5 minutes away!, Hungerford, Reading,A34, M4, Windsor and Ascot. Our accommodation is well situated for Thatcham and Newbury business parks, and Vodafone Headquarters.

We are pleased to continue this great tradition of Innkeeping in Newbury and to rated so highly on review websites. Our relaxed but professional service offers a true home from home.

We hope to be able to welcome you soon!!

A must for a Special Occasion!  AB TA November 2016
We celebrated my husbands 50th Birthday meal with our kids. Lovely large table, waiting staff were attentive and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble, they were very much on the ball with everything. The food was excellent from starters to puddings. Good quality ingredients all locally sourced and be prepared to eat a lot massive portions. Will return!!

First Class Venue BT TA November 2016
We were here for a wedding from start to finish it was faultless. The staff were both friendly and helpful. The venue has a beautiful Barn, lots of little cubby holes , beautiful garden area which was lit up. The manager was the most attentive and friendly person and his staff really seemed to enjoy working there. The food was amazing, well presented, great portion sizes, best Yorkshire pudding ever! We will definitely go back and try out the restaurant menu. 
Nicest wedding venue I've been too for a long time!!
