What a surprise - food was not what we expected - spend a lot of time in the “premier restaurants” in South Wales and this place is on a par with them.

Proud winner of a Michelin Bib Gourmand and featuring in The Good Food Guide and The Good Pub Guide, Hare & Hounds Aberthin is a celebrated rural pub that dates back over 300 years. Filled with cosy rustic charm, diners can also enjoy casual drinks outside in the tranquil beer garden.

The Hare & Hounds Aberthin menu treats diners to seasonal Welsh flavours, with ingredients from the pub’s own kitchen garden used throughout. Enjoy wholesome, unpretentious recipes like crispy pig’s cheek with chicory, mustard and pickled apple to start, moving on to hearty mains such as rare roast venison haunch, or the vegetarian rotolo.

Hare & Hounds in Cowbridge also makes its own sourdough bread and cultured butter, while on Sundays there are celebrated roast dinners with all the trimmings. Local ales are on tap at the bar, as well as a wine list featuring acclaimed European vintages.

A charming Welsh pub with a long list of accolades, Hare & Hounds Aberthin is an inviting little hideaway to indulge with gourmet British dishes.

    Disappointed. After all the accolades, I expected to have had some choice of food. When I booked, I said that most of our party were vegetarian. The menu was of 4 dishes only, 2 meat, 1 fish and 1 vegetarian. It was risotto. How boring. No vegetables were served. On the plus side, the desserts were excellent.

    Very good service and food. We shared a neck of lamb which was delicious and good value. Good ambience and pleasant staff. The donuts didn’t taste of the rhubard which was supposed to be there but the waitress dealt with that issue to our satisfaction.

    The food was fabulous, the service friendly and helpful, we've been before and will most certainly return!

    Nice choice of menu plus specials. Lots of dishes for 2/3 people. We opted for roast rib of beef with chips & bearnaise sauce. It was beautifully cooked. Excellent ambiance & staff very welcoming and helpful. They didn’t have our preferred wine - Muscadet - and offered a Viognier instead. It wasn’t quite to our taste but didn’t spoil the meal. Delicious puddings! There’s bad mobile reception so we had problems with taxi booking. The staff were fab & gave us drinks on the house whilst we waited. V thoughtful & much appreciated.

    Excellent food and wine
    Potatoes a bit too salty for me
    Value for money
    Wish they had a car park

    This restaurant is part of a very traditional pub set up with a separate dining room. It is fairly basic decor wise with scrubbed wooden tables and is very clean. The menu is wonderful, very sophisticated and offers something different with a good choice of wines. I went with friends who are in the hospitality trade and they were very impressed. The food is wonderful, cooked perfectly and is well presented. The staff are very friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant and advise early booking, especially over a weekend. On average I would say the costs are in the region of £45-50 pp for a 3 course meal with wine, but worth it. The bar area is rather tired and could do with an overhaul but otherwise a great place to visit.

    Amazing! The taster menu was fantastic, wine pairing was excellent and the service was incredible. We had the perfect evening. Thank you!

    This was our second visit, the first for lunch which was delicious. Our evening meal with family and friends was simply wonderful too.
    We were greeted warmly and received excellent service though out. The evening was a great success and enjoyed by all.
