I was baffled by the great ratings for this place, but most of them are for the restaurant which did seem really busy. The hotel itself is grim, dated, and cramped. It benefits from the fact that Newbury, like nearby Reading, has a chronic shortage of hotels, and therefore second-rate places like this can get away with poor standards and...

We went here with friends as my husband had some business to attend to, so we had decided to make a weekend of it. We found our rooms at the back of the main building in a mews type setting. The room was a little dark and cold when we went in. There was plenty of lighting though and controllable...

Eight of us went for lunch today. Some restaurants find it difficult to manage the logistics of a group that size on a normal Saturday. The Hare and Hounds did so with elegance and efficiency. we are warmly welcomed, shown a really comfortable corner, attended to with commendable dispatch and efficiency and had a great meal from every respect.

I attended the annual New Years party which was held in The Barn (extension to the pub) It was very busy, sold out I believe, and we were offered a glass of "Barn Fizz" on arrival. Well, the fizz definitely lost it's fizz along the way, it was more like Ribena, certainly not alcoholic. I was expecting at least a...

Dear Molly Thank you for your review and apologies if you felt underwhelmed. I have to say that the feedback I received on the night was the best we have had for a New Years celebration, and I felt the night had been a success. The Barn Fizz is Prosecco with cranberry juice in a sugar rimmed glass, I can...

We chose off the Festive Menu, Roast turkey with all the trimmings and also tasty salmon, served with lovely fresh vegetables. Service was very good, and the food was delicious. A cold, windy, rainy day, but warm in the Barn restaurant. Looking forward to returning next year.

I have eaten here in the evening a few times with different size groups and the service has always been excellent. Even when the restaurant was full with large Christmas parties, our table of 7 was not overlooked. The staff are friendly and the food is great two, not often you get the both together! The Barn creates a lovely...

We had a lovely evening. The Barn was decorated beautifully and there was a really good atmosphere. We were well looked after by the staff and the food was good. This is the 3rd time we have held a function here and they have all been just as good.

Arranged my birthday dinner here for 8 of my family and friends. Lovely room in the Barn, felt very Christmassy with a fire and nicely decorated and was particularly helped along by a local choir who were enjoying a Christmas meal and entertained us with a few songs. Service was very friendly, attentive and prompt and although there was a...

First time to the hotel, would definitely go again. Visited last month for Newbury racecourse. Stayed in a cosy room upstairs in the main building, breakfast was included and good. If I find myself in need of a place to stay around Newbury, I will return.
