My friend and I popped in here for lunch on Tuesday, super place and good varied menu. We both had one of my favourite dishes, risotto, and it didn't disappoint. Very friendly staff and good service. Good price and perfect for what we needed after a morning watching horses on the gallops. Highly recommended as somewhere to pop in for... More

Wonderful choice of food, which was cooked and presented extremely well. I managed three courses as the portions were not too large and the food was not heavy. I would definitely go back and recommend for couples or special occasions or if you just want a good meal at a good price.

Fantastic restaurant for a Sunday roast. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and speedy. Menu was broad with a great choice for a family meal.

Called in on the off chance after a morning visiting Snowdrops in Welford near Newbury. How glad am I we stopped? Warm welcome to a very busy restaurant by the owner. Very comfortable seating and plenty of room for four on table. Main courses of Lamb and Beef and myself had the Seabass. We all completed the staff on the... More

Good food, beer and fine wines served by friendly and capable staff. Always a welcome and the fact that they are always busy says it all!

This place used to be amazing! The staff were great, very attentive and friendly, But this time we were disappointed by a few things..... Vegatables that seemed to have been microwaved, what looked like shop bought pate, Tirimisu that was runny and had what looked like shop bought fingers, that were still hard - not soaked in coffee. It had... More

On a busy Sunday the staff quickly found us a seat in the bar. The butternut squash curry and fish pie were great, and it was nice to have the option of not having a roast. The fish pie was particularly impressive with large pieces of fish and not loads of potato (thanks for not adding cheese). We wish we'd... More

Have eaten at the Hare on many occasions since living locally for ten years. Good menu with varied choice for all tastes. Starter of Beetroot cured salmon was good, needed some extra acidity, followed by lamb shank that could have used some more seasoning. Sticky toffee pudding was excellent. The interior of the restaurant is looking a bit tired as... More
