Went to Rare Hare for a casual lunch on a sunny Saturday with friends in a group of 4. The place was busy but seemed to cope well. We started with the wine tasting, and enjoyed most of the seven wines on tasting (no charge). We wanted to sit outside for lunch so there was a short wait for a table, inside had tables ready to go, waited maybe 15 mins so we bought a bottle of their Rose, sat on the sunny lawn in the comfy chairs provided and watched the passing parade of over excited groups chatting. We were seated at a large table shared with another group which was fine. Great view across the vineyard to a dam at the bottom of the hill.
Service was prompt, friendly, even a little quirky, “any allergies? Don’t want to serve you anything that might kill you.” Water was replenished regularly without request. We ordered shared plates including Salumi selection, excellent, oysters,, fresh and juicy, sardines with preserved lemon rind, fantastic, beetroot Muhammad’s and witlof, great but not as amazing as waitress suggested, chargrilled squid with Romesco Nero and grilled lemon, looked amazing and was cooked beautifully, broccolini and Parmesan custard, unusual and very tasty, and the charcoal eggplant with red miso and furikake.
Great mix of flavours, most dishes have a different spin on the usual so there’s a treat in store in each one. Left happy and content, prices are reasonable and we’ll be back.
