"Patience is the secret to good food"

Gail Simmons (Canadian Food Writer) 


We believe this too!

We are zealous about providing for our customers - healthy, high quality, value for money, tasty bar food.  We shop personally for our ingredients and exercise time and patience in cooking food for our guests at “The Hare”.  All our dishes are cooked using fresh ingredients on our premises. 

We have developed a food offer that aims to sustain and delight both locals and visitors on business or visiting the town in their leisure time.  Equally, we aim to offer a variety of bar food that complements our range of real ales, lagers, craft beers, wines and sodas.

We made the decision to specialise in a classic menu, done well, while this does not exclusively reflect our bill of fare, we do this because it enables us to provide customers with tasty, hearty and nourishing food that represents excellent value for money.

We also offer daily & weekly specials, created by our team of talented chefs.



Allergy advice: if you have an intolerance to any food please ask at the restaurant for a comprehensive list of dishes and their ingredients before ordering.


Combining the skills of our highly trained and quality chefs, has enabled us to come up with something for everyone. From a quick Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea or evening meals. We have the experience for you! Breakfast served between 9am to 12pm, with our stunning Cream Tea or Afternoon Teas from 2pm to 5.30pm from Monday to Saturday.

Sunday Lunch has never been the same since lockdown in March 2020 and we aim to please our guests with our classic Sunday Lunches that will keep you coming back for more, with  both dining in our recent refurbished  brasserie or through our ever popular takeaway service.

Our high quality and experienced chefs prepare our homemade Sunday classics that cater for all appetites', that include our sharing platter for two or your choice of Chicken, Beef and Pork. We always have something for everyone that also includes a meatless option for vegans, vegetarians and smaller portions for children under 12. Nothing is TOO small for us to handle.
