This was our second visit to the Horse and Hounds and although we had a nice evening, it was a little disappointing. We made our reservations in November for our February visit so that we were sure to get a table (last year we were unable to get a reservation 2 days before our visit). Upon arrival, to our chagrin, they were seating us (there were 5 of us) in the tavern side area at two round tables they pulled side-by-side. We were fully expecting to sit in the dining room not the tavern with such advanced reservations. We asked to please be seated in the dining room and they did accommodate us but we felt that the dining room is where we should have been seated anyway.
The food was very good but the Chicken Stew had almost no chicken at all and for the price, there should have been much more chicken. It was almost entirely gravy and some mushrooms. That was disappointing. They ran out of desert so the only desert they offered was Red Velvet cake. Unfortunately, it was disappointing. It was dry and seemed as though it was previously frozen and thawed because they had run out of other deserts.
Enough of the things that didn't go right. Overall, we love the H&H and will certainly go back. The appetizers were all excellent and other than the Chicken Stew lacking chicken, all of the meals were very good. We found the prices to be reasonable and our server ( Jo) was excellent! Hopefully, the owner/manager sees this review and makes some subtle changes. We will certainly be back.
