I visited the Hare and Hounds for a comedy night this December and had an excellent meal. Delicious terrine for starter and a curry that matches "proper" Indian restaurants for flavour and quality. An excellent evening and ever friendly staff.

Went to the French night yesterday, enjoyed wonderful food and spectacular wines. Host was brilliant explaining choices of wine to go with the food. I thought twice about writing a review as it will get even more difficult to book next time.
