We last visited here a couple of years ago, a handy half way point between our home in Kent and our daughter/son-in-laws in Twickenham, and this time we met Joan and Jimmy, our son-in-laws parents. Two out of three real ales on - Doom Bar tasted like sugar water but Harveys was pretty decent. It was Sunday lunchtime and the place was half full, and I'm sure that on previous visits it was far busier. Food was OK, my roast chicken was nothing special but our guests really enjoyed their meals. For what it was, I felt it a bit on the expensive side, and lacked the atmosphere of previous visits. I must lower my previous 9/10 score though.

When you first enter this looks like a really nice cosy country pub, cushions and comfy chairs around with Harveys and Doombar on pump. Then take a look at the menu - eek!, very upmarket and expensive food, no sandwiches or baguettes available, cheapest snack type think going was a croque madam for £9.50, most main meals around £16.
I think this pub is very nice for a few pints or an expensive meal but there's nothing in between.

More food in the afternoon rather than beer in the evening I'm afraid, though the doombar was very good. However Sunday lunch of roast lamb and roast beef at £16 a go wasn't. Lamb was all fat and sent back. Beef was so tough I struggled through half of it, some of it I couldn't even cut. Potatoes hard yorkshire soft. Waitress said she would tell the chef and returned to inform me that he says that cut of beef has a good flavour but this means it's not tender like some cuts.... no apology or offer to make amends. Maybe he thinks I'm just trying to get a discount or a freebee dessert- I would much prefer to be able to eat my overpriced meal and enjoy it! At £16 this meal was just not good enough, I really despair of some of the food offered in this area, no wonder people go out of business, this pub was barely half full on a Sunday lunchtime. I also tell the barman of my woes when I pay- he says he'll " have a word" then charges me 40 quid!

Really comfortable/relaxing feel to this place if you like bohemian cushions and dream catchers. Good food is the focus with very pleasant garden at the back.

The pub stands up well by comparison to almost all of the country dining pubs that I use regularly throughout Sussex and the Home Counties, frequently blessed with several places that would give many London restaurants a good run for their money. The Hare & Hounds beats most of these hands down.

The current chef and his wife took the premises over some 2 years ago and their influence has been clear from the transformation of the menu from good to something that in my opinion has become uniformly excellent.

Chef Eric has a sound background in clever culinary skills that are highlighted by carefully-prepared, but deceptively simple sauces that compliment a range of changing seasonal dishes, most of which use fresh local ingredients. A two course fixed price menu compliments these and theyre all supported by simple pub classic and salads. This results in a fairly-priced menu where few would find it difficult to choose something appetising. Ive yet to try anything that failed to live up to its promise and the owners and their helpful, friendly staff are always happy to help anyone torn between several choices.

The pub currently has on tap well-kept Greene King IPA and Harveys Best Bitter from Lewes, as well as a range of other lagers, ciders and stouts. Theres a sensible wine list with examples from both new and old world sources, with a number of choices of good wine by the glass at reasonable prices.

Theres plenty of seating space, where theres a range of eclectic furnishings and sofas as well as more conventional tables and chairs both around the bar area and in the surrounding rooms. Outside space includes a south-facing decking area along the front of the building, with more space behind where shaded decking and trestle tables offer further seating options. Additional outside dining is planned for the future.
