"The Home of BERTHA!".....
Welcome to The Hare & Hounds
BERTHA is our charcoal oven, she is a cross between an oven and a charcoal grill. Using top grade charcoal and wood, the sealed cabinet design results in a more intense BBQ Smokehouse flavour which we hope you will enjoy!!

“Another great stay!” PB TA February 2017
Stayed for just one night this time. As usual the food was good, both dinner and breakfast. The room was fresh and clean . Plenty of parking and just minutes from Newbury town centre and the M4. The bar has some good real ales and the restaurant breakfast offers both full English or continental breakfasts.
First visit, recommended by friends, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable lunch and fantastic value for money. Friendly, efficient and caring staff added to our enjoyment and the owner took the trouble to talk to guests at every table in the Barn restaurant - a nice touch. The ambience is warm and welcoming, the location is very convenient. We'll be back there soon!
