With family members coming from all points north, south, east and west, Newbury was an ideal place to meet and the Hare & Hounds was an excellent choice. Claire and her team took it all in their stride, a wheelchair, an infant, six boisterous children, they looked after us splendidly. The food was excellent and very good value. A lovely day everyone agreed.
Our stay was for a family wedding reception which was held in the new Barn extension a very airy and light room. The owner was always present and all the staff were very helpful and friendly any special requests was dealt with very politely and professionally.
It seemed very important to the staff that we were having a good time, quite unique these days. The quality of the food was very good and served hot considering we filled the Barn with over 50 people.
We will definitely return for another stay and highly recommend this Hotel.
