“Best Food for a Long Long Time!” Gary C TA January 2016
Food Food Food ! was amazing.We travel around the southwest and London a lot and stay in many hotels and pubs. The service from start to finish was outstanding, staff were friendly happy yet professional at all times, the rooms were more than adequate for an old building,warm charismatic well equipped. Food was exceptional thou .. very high end .. massive respect to the chefs attention to detail,and reasonably priced too, great choice of beers and wines!
Attentive service from staff who you felt actually wanted to be there .. which is very rare these days.Well done the the Hare and Hounds for setting a standard of service I haven't seen in a long time.
“A Lovely meal in Great Surroundings” CM TA January 2016
“Superb Venue” DL TA January 2016
This is the second time we have stayed at the hare and hounds hotel and both times we have loved it. The room was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. On both nights we ate in the bar/restaurant and enjoyed every meal. We will stop again there when we are next visiting Newbury!
