Composed of classic patterned red bricks, The Hare and Tortoise Rossington dates back to the 18th century. Continuing a heritage of serving food and drink, well-loved British pub cuisine can be enjoyed at The Hare and Tortoise, from the cosy hearth-fire or outside in the al fresco beer garden. It is furnished with vintage ornaments, eye-catching art and chunky oak beams to aid the rustic atmosphere.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Hare and Tortoise menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Hare and Tortoise ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

While in the country outside the city, The Hare and Tortoise is only 10 minutes’ driving from central Doncaster.

    food was poor service was good

    Most of the menu choice was u available. Then when we ordered the wine that was also unavailable. Kept having to ask where the wine was that we ordered. After waiting 45minutes for our dessert choices to be taken after going and asking, we were told the waitress had gone home. My dessert was a warm dessert however was cold and not the best. The same was said for the other desserts. The mains were on a whole ok. Service and choice shocking as this table had been booked for weeks. Friends that we donned with had separately come the same week and had both been disappointed then. Do not feel like we will be rushing back.

    Lovely setting but food lets it down - I expected more from this place than microwaved mash...

    The restaurant is pleasant but unfortunately the menu seems to get more disappointing as the prices rise. The choices are more limited and the specials less special. What was once a regular haunt has become a now and again destination even though it is very convenient for us.

    We have eaten here before and really enjoyed our meal however we were disappointed this time. The chips tasted like fish as though they had been fried in the same batter; which wasn't great with steak. When arrived we were told the pizza oven had broke so we couldn't have anything with flatbread or pizza and there was no lamb or duck; at 6:30 on a Saturday night this was disappointing! The brownie we ordered was delicious however the Eton mess had never been Eton mess! It was a plate of cream with a half frozen cake underneath; no meringue or fresh fruit. The pub restaurant is a lovely venue n the staff are friendly it's a shame the food really let it down this time.

    Hunters chicken was lovely, very tasty.
    Mixed grill was fine.
    Seafood risotto was over cooked with scallops but, as far as I could tell, no lobster, as advertised and 3 prawns. Not value for money.
    Chicken pie -meat was quite stringy. We did make this clear to the manager.
    We all ordered garlic flatbread. It was dry and burnt on one side.
