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.

    We had the 9-course tasting menu. It was one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. For example one course was a small meat pie on which the pastry was brick hard and quite impossible to cut. Several of the dishes were over-seasoned with mustard or vinegar and were really quite unpleasant. This was unfortunately on a different planet from a fine dining experience, with the exception of the price. The kitchen clearly doesn't have the expertise to pull this sort of thing off.

    Being entertained by friends from Bristol, whose daughter had given them glowing reports --- they enjoy fine dining. It's very pleasant , but being rustic it is not too comfortable. Food was interesting and good but the plates could have been a deal warmer, and I would prefer it if the medical team in the kitchen were to leave it to me to decide on the level of seasoning which satisfies me. Albeit the seasoning was was good, I (and most of my friends) wish to see the availability of condiments 'à la table'. Value for money?___not sure, but I will try it again.

    Absolutely fantastic Sunday lunch, perfect food and very chilled service. Love it.
    I had Lamb Heart as a starter, beautiful. Lamb as main course - based and fillet. The best of all was the dessert - a simple gooseberry Soufflé - so incredibly light, buckets of flavour... wow

    We had a 5month puppy who was very welcome in the bar area by the fire. We sat there for food. With a fantastic service and truly delicious menu, this is a must visit for anyone passing by. It’s not the cheapest pub grub - but that’s because it’s not pub grub. You get what you pay for. Local, fresh produce, cooked to perfection! Mitchelin starred restaurant feel in a cosy pub environment. Delicious!

    Lamb from Torgelly Farm is wonderful

    Great atmosphere and friendly staff for an excellent lunch. Quality of dishes would put some of the best UK restaurants under significant pressure judged by our experience of examples from ‘top 10’ in recent months. Place this also with clear value for money and this is already a contender for personal favourite of 2019, and its only January!

    Very good food. It was expensive but I would recommend for a special occasion.
