Always guaranteed a good carvery at the hare and hounds. Disappointed with the beef, undercooked and found an unexpected guest in my curly karl, long blond hair, not nice !!!

We have been here for Sunday lunch so many times You have to time it right as you can struggle to get a table due to its popularity It offers one of the best Sunday lunches in the area The carvery has a choice of 3 meats and fresh vegetables, regularly topped up Great location, and food

We called in here on our way for a short break, in Sidmouth. We arrived at 11:45. The car park was empty but we had a good welcome. The food was terrific and when left the car park was bursting at the seams. Clearly the Seniors Carvery was a big attraction...... Well worth a visit.

Most notable for its wonderfully tasty and reasonably priced carverys, the Hare and Hounds has much more to offer on the food front with their wide ranging menus. Full of British Classics is well worth a culinary detour. The bar is well stocked full of good ales, wines and an interestingly powerful cider. The pub is beautifully warm and inviting... More

As good as ever, Lunch time Carvery one of their specialties. Always a choice of meats, and vegetables. Staff never seem to change, good sign of Management and working conditions. Day we went blustery and cold, nice large fire to welcome you, what more can you ask for.

Get there Early or book a table - the place heaves with people non-stop, and we were there on a cold day in November. The food was plentiful and tasty. The vegetables were done to perfection, no hint of overcooking. The meat was fabulous, though there was no lamb available that day. It was fairly quiet except for the family... More

We ate here with our son and his family on Sunday 23 October. The adults all had the carvery which was excellent. The younger ones all had different meals which all looked appetising and they all said the food was lovely. Would definitely recommend that you book for the carvery on a Sunday in plenty of time as it was... More

Popped in for lunch today at 2pm when staff were clearing up after serving main lunch/carvery so it was fairly quiet. Food was lovely. However, the ambiance was spoilt because (as we were seated near the bar/serving area) we could overhear staff talking in a very loud and negative way about other staff not present. We considered this to be... More
