Ate here on a cold Saturday afternoon after a lovely walk in the forest, roaring open fires, friendly staff and great pub grub! Would recommend.

Never fails to deliver on taste and quality. One of our favourite eateries anywhere. Could do with a couple more deserts that cater for those that don't want alcohol, but that's just being picky because it's all good otherwise.

The Hare and Hounds is a good old-fashioned pub with nice food and a good range of beers and ciders. Go for their basics rather than the more flashy stuff!
