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.
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.
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!!

FREE WIFI - we have just revamped our system to ensure full coverage throughout the Inn and all rooms.

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

Friendly, comfortable and great service.

I stayed on wet gloomy Sunday night on business. 
I found everyone was very friendly, helpful, courteous & accommodating.
And Wifi was free!. It was all great value.
Some of the major hotel chains ought to send their staff here for some training on how to do it right!
