“The Barn”, is our new restaurant & wedding venue at The Hare and Hounds, Newbury, and heralds a new era for our historic 18 th century inn. After a long and arduous passage through planning, we firmly believe “The Barn” will be a stunning addition to the choice of wedding and celebration venues in Newbury .Having opened THE BARN in January 2015 to rave reviews, we are now taking bookings for 2017, we are delighted to be full for 2016.

Built by the leading barn specialist in the country, our new oak framed extension has to be seen to be really appreciated. The outside deck, garden and covered terrace really do make this an ideal venue. Add in our Inn's 30 bedroom accommodation and we truly believe that we have created something very special!
