Welcome To
The Hare & Hounds Hotel

As seen on BBC TV's Great British Railway JAs seen onTV - BBC Great Railway Journeysourneys!

Our privately owned Coaching Hotel, located on the outskirts of Newbury, has continued to offer bed & breakfast and a warm welcoming bar & restaurant 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. e
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 inn, and will be joined in early 2015 by "The Barn", our purpose built restaurant and wedding venue.

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!!

Read what our most recent guests said about us, thank you to you all!

“Home from Home!”

I have stayed at the Hare & Hounds on and off for some 20 years
The rooms are pleasant, clean and nice and warm just what you need when your away from home.
The food is great and a good selection of fine ales, all the staff are friendly and you do get service with a smile which is not very common on breakfast service.
This establishment ticks all the boxes

"Will be Back”

Stayed overnight to attend a function nearby. Great meal in the new barn room on the Saturday night - lovely food and great service. The room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast in the morning was brilliant. I would definitely recommend it and will certainly be back!!
