Lovely pub with a virbant interior, and the atmosphere was very good. Good range of drinks available as well. The food was excellent and was good value for money. Staff were attentive and gave good recommendations for both food and drink. Will definitely be revisiting.

Amazing food, lovely people who know the menu and place well. Drinks are delicious. Only thing I'd change would be to make it a little more affordable.

Also super dog friendly which always makes it a happier place to be.

Really good food at the Hare & Billet last night. Pretty noisy in the main area, but not unbearable. Good for families with children and also dog friendly. Pretty good variety of beers as well.

Hi Andyg, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. We're happy we could meet your expectations. I am afraid during busy times our bar area can get a little noisy and we are sorry to hear that it was a little bit to much for you. Next time, we recommend you request to be seated in our restaurant area where it is usually a bit quieter. Looking forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Fabrizio

Lovely food but felt very rushed when we had arrived. Hardly sat down before we were asked what we wanted. Too many checks by different people to see if we were OK. But certainly not an unpleasant evening

Responded on 10 July 2021

Hi Terry, I am glad you liked the food and I am sorry you felt rushed, wasn’t our intention. Regarding the check back, sometimes, as a manager, i do check all the tables are ok even if my staff has already been as I want to make sure that all my guests are having a good experience and top service, I apologise if this made you feel uncomfortable. Kind regards, Natalia

The service was super friendly and accommodating. For starters we had whitebait and a tempura soft shell crab which was tasty. For the mains, one of us had fish and chips and the other two had pan fried seabass. The pigs in blanket are also worth the try. This was the first time we have been and it will be on our list of places to come back to.

Probably great for normal people, I've had terrible experience with gluten free request. Refused to engage in even a conversation about gluten free options, so dont recommend if you need that option. Otherwise, looks good for everyone else

The Hare and Billet
Responded on 7 July 2021

Good morning, We don't have gluten free option but we have dishes non containing gluten and i am sure we showed you our allergens information. I do understand the choices are very limited, but we have to be strict with allergens and can't risk to make any mistake that can cause problems to our guest's health. I apologise if you couldn't find a variety of dishes that suited your needs. Kind regards, Natalia

The quality of food was very good and tasted great. Above all though the staff were fantastic, we left our phone in a taxi and they helped beyond expectation, booking a cab to return to our hotel at their own expense unbeknown to us, so a huge thank you. What a great pub, staff and experience.

First of all...the food is beautiful. Saying that, the actual building needs a fresh lick of paint. There was a bit of a smell of wet dog, not the restaurants fault...but the wet dog parked up beside us at the next table.
