Outstanding food and wine, with a relaxed atmosphere. The scallops followed by the sea bass were our favourite dishes.

    I love this restaurant and the feel of it is so lovely and cosy.

    We visited last winter and the food was exceptional, this set the bar incredibly high and sadly on Thursday I was slightly disappointed. I had the squid and duck, the squid was half warm and half cold when it came out and was more fennel than fish. The duck main wasn’t at all crispy and in parts was quite tough.

    We still enjoyed our evening but it just didn’t wow us like our dinner previously.

    I would still visit again but this was a shame.

    We really enjoyed our meal and the staff were very friendly and super-helpful. My steak was delicious, as was my husband's risotto. We both enjoyed the dumpling starters and were sad that we couldn't manage dessert. Only comment was that the coffee took far too long to arrive - the waitress said that she was not trained to use the machine and had to wait for someone who was - and by the time it arrived we were the only remaining guests in the restaurant so felt we should speed up and let the staff go home!

    I took my elderly mother and a couple of visiting friends, to the Hare and Hounds for Sunday lunch. The staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating and the food was excellent. We all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience as the surroundings are comfortable and attractive too. Being able to watch, the busy Chefs in the kitchen, is an interesting bonus!

    We had the Summer taster menu with paired wines - it was Fantastic. The atmosphere, service, food, wine was just superb. We had a great evening and excellent value too.

    Quality of food was outstanding and the chef's engagement with us explaining how they had prepared each course was just brilliant, all done with a sense of humour

    Absolutely smashed it.
