Eat at The Hare & Hounds
The Home of BERTHA & THE BARN!

I ntroducing the BERTHA Experience
A banquet for all your party It's the taste sensation you won't forget!! Available for bookings NOW

BERTHA is our charcoal oven in which all our grilled and smoked food is cooked!  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!!

Having arrived in 2005 to an unloved and decrepit Inn, we are delighted and extremely proud to have added our green oak framed restaurant,
THE BARN in 2015! It become a leading choice to dine out in Newbury and is the reigning WBBA Restaurant & Bar of the Year , BIB Retailer of the Year 2018  and was awarded the Diner's Choice Award for 2018 and a Certificate of Excellence 2018 from Trip Advisor!

In September 2015 we refurbished the bar restaurant and officially unveiled "The Pantry". Together with The Library, this allows us to offer a less formal area to dine in than The Barn.

Our Head Chef Tom Brannagan and his team create many great dishes, pdf versions of our menus are to be found below. With the arrival of "Bertha", we serve some of the best tasting grilled foor for many a mile! In addition we have bar classics and much more. Why not try our prime cut steaks, fresh fish, home-made burger to our secret recipe, our famous Fish Pie, home baked Ham with free range eggs, you really will be spoilt for choice. Treat yourselves to Friday Steak & Grill Night, Traditional Roast Sunday Lunch and regular Gourmet Weeks & promotions  throughout the year.

We are proud to use local suppliers. All our food is freshly cooked and all our meat is British provenance sourced. We use a local fishmonger who has a day boat at Brixham, a butcher who stops at nothing to ensure great quality and our greengrocer has proudly traded in Newbury for longer than he cares to remember!

Relax and enjoy your meal while being attentively cared for by our friendly staff. If the weather is willing you can enjoy dining al fresco on our brand new deck, covered terrace or our new garden.

After much soul searching we have made the difficult decision to no longer host weddings at present. We apologise to anyone this may disappoint, but we feel it is the right decision for our business and ourselves. We look forward to seeing you soon.
