Booked for Valentines night and was not disappointed. Waitresses very efficient and polite.Food very good and lots of choice for desserts, however I didn't get to try them as too full! The tables were spaced nicely and I didn't feel crammed in like some places do on special nights. Great atmosphere and a ideal venue for couples I. The evening.... More

Unfortunately you can't book a table at this restaurant so decided to chance having an early dinner. On arrival we stood waiting and 2 waitresses walked past without acknowledging us. Eventually a friendly chap showed us to a table. Our waitress, whilst friendly, seemed to have the knack of disappearing and chatting at length to everyone and anyone, so we... More

We are local and eat at The Hare regularly - always getting excellent food and service. Last Friday we went for the 'Fish Friday' menu. Pan fried sea trout with scalloped potatoes and samphire. Absolutely superb - our best meal ever. All washed down with the Fish Friday wine - Sancerre at a very good price. Good atmosphere with excellent... More

Although this might just be the only "good" place to go and where everyone is recommending at the moment, it isn't worth it. The food was bland with no salt or seasoning, the service was horrendous, and the alcohol list is miniscule. The complementary very small cup of soup was by far the best part of the entire meal. I...

We went for a family meal. I had the luxury fish pie, my wife had rack of pork and my daughter had a gluten-free meal of pork belly and crackling (this was also on the non-gluten free menu). The portion sizes were generous (we were told later that we could have ordered "small" portions). The food was very good as... More

Travelling cross country, around lunchtime we found this lovely pub / restaurant. We only stopped for a cup of tea / break, but were immediately warmly welcomed by Craig, who found us a table and tea for two. Over the next 40 mins we engaged in several conversations with various staff members, who all found the time to chat amongst... More
