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

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

Ideal for Highclere Castle, yes "Downton Abbey" is 5 minutes away!, Hungerford, Reading,A34, M4, Windsor and Ascot.

“Wonderful find and wonderful food”

We were staying at the Vineyard down the road but not too impressed with the restaurant and food. However we ventured out to find somewhere more suitable. We managed to get a table luckily and very pleased with our choice of venue. the food was to die for. Very accommodating and the staff were extremely friendly and polite. Cosy, modern and a fantastic menu selection.

The service was second to none and the staff were very tentertive to all of our needs. Presentation and quantity was amazing. I would recommend a visit to The Hare and Hounds Hotel. Well done to the staff and management top marks guy

A Delightful Lunch!

We were pleasantly surprised by our lunch at the Hare and Hounds.
The dining room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The chairs were comfy and the tables not too cluttered together.
The staff were very attentive and efficient.
The two course lunch special was extremely good value for money & the food was very fresh and delicious. I had a cauliflower cheese with ham and my companion had the chicken in a bucket that said it was the best lunch he had had in awhile. I have recommended it to several colleagues already and look forward to coming back soon.
