Jack Hare's Bar

If Jack Hare were a man, he'd be a chirpy fellow who'd enjoy good food, fine ale and a cosy armchair by the fire he could just sink into with his faithful four-legged companion sat loyally by his side. So we've created a lively country pub next door that offers just that. We've even immersed man's (and Jack's) best friend into the artwork behind the bar, painted by our signature artist Katharine Lightfoot.

With a vibrant ambiance and lots of intimate cosy corners to unwind in, friends come together and locals gather to feast on a plate of sumptuous food and a glass of fine wine throughout the day. Our bar menu is indulgent yet simple and designed to satisfy your cravings from a morning coffee through to dinner, with a delicious bite for lunch in between. There's a fabulous selection of ales and ciders, an inspiring wine list or a traditional gin and tonic, whatever your tipple may be, our friendly bar staff will be ready to serve it to you. During the warmer months, relax outside in the summer sun.

Anniversary celbrations

Anon, stayed: November 2019

We enjoyed our stay at the Hare and Hounds. We had a lovely meal in the evening the food was excellent and the waiter service was good, didn't rush us when deciding what to have. As the waitress had an accent we sometimes were unable to understand what she said. She was very good though very patient with us. It was a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. In the afertnoon we had tea, which I thought was very reasonable as far as cost. The room was good although as the heating was on all night it made the room a bit stuffy. We also had a very good breakfast.

Pre Christmas Break

Brian, Hertfordshire, stayed: December 2018

Lovely hotel; only issues were that we were not given the table we thought that we had reserved (twice) in the Beaufort Restaurant . Also, we had to ask for the fire to kept alight in the Drawing Room after dinner, which the receptionist did with reluctance. It almost seemed that staff or management wanted to close down the Drawing Room after early evening, for example used gin and tonic glasses had not been cleared away when we returned to the Drawing Room after dinner looking forward to a roaring log fire ( which was eventually provided). There was obviously a management issue concerning how the Drawing Room was staffed .
We wondered why we could t reserve a table of our choice being told that they usually fill up the tables from the windows outwards.
Our Silkwood Room was stunning which will attract us to return whilst the food in the Beaufort Room for dinner and breakfast was excellent .

A great birthday present (if tricky to wrap)

Chris, Leicestershire, stayed: December 2018

Whilst planning my wife's 40th, I thought it would be nice to find us a place to stay that was grander than our normal choice of hotel and offered some great food in a special setting.
The Hare and Hounds turned out to a fantastic choice. Set in a lovely location, with friendly staff, wonderful food and spacious, comfortable rooms. I'll certainly be staying there again. Hopefully before my wife turns 80.

Great little hotel, made all the better by the friendly staff who could not do enough to help, but not intrusive. Rooms were decent size and comfortable. Food was good perhaps a little on the pricey side for the menu. Hotel was beside the stunning little town of Tetbury which is a walk away. would stay again.

Relaxing escape

Nick, Northamptonshire, stayed: October 2018

We had a single-night stay and found everything exceeded expectations - proximity to a main road (that was a slight concern before we went) was not noticeable, the room and the service were both exceptional. All my pre-arrival requests were carried out (things like Champagne and flowers in the room). We both felt very relaxed through what was a flying visit really. The restaurant was lovely although the menu choice was on the small side.
Overall a lovely relaxing experience. We will be going again.
