If you’re looking for a venue offering a relaxing atmosphere and delicious food, with staff who provide service that is second to none, look no further than The Hare & Hounds in Old Warden.
If you fancy a nibble, check out a meat or veggie sharing board and maybe a cocktail; otherwise delve into an appetising starter such as seared scallops with chorizo and cauliflower rarebit with fennel bread toast. The menu changes regularly, with produce sourced from the pub’s own allotment, or provided by local growers who can trade their homegrown goods for vouchers. Popular mains include pan-roasted partridge from a local supplier, with Savoy cabbage and lardons, and braised lamb suet pudding accompanied by sweet potato mash, kidney dumpling and salsify crisps. Finally, for pudding, the chocolate tart is deservedly popular, though the sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream is also highly recommended.
The menu is reasonably priced and includes a fish and chip special on Monday evenings.
To accompany your meal, The Hare & Hounds offers three regular ales on tap and a rotating selection of guest ales, in addition to over 30 hand-picked wines and a range of organic soft drinks. With a home-from-home ambience, The Hare & Hounds avoids stuffiness in favour of comfort and an amiable atmosphere.
