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, plump for the grazing board alongside a cocktail; otherwise delve into an appetising starter such as braised pig cheeks with roasted pearl onions, celeriac purée, peppercorn sauce and crackling. The menu changes regularly, with produce sourced from the pub’s own allotment, or provided by local growers who trade their homegrown goods for vouchers. Popular mains include pan-fried chicken supreme with smoked potato and truffle broth garnished with charred gem lettuce and chorizo snow. Finally, for pudding, the chocolate fondant is deservedly popular, though the sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream is also highly recommended. The menu is reasonably priced and includes a set menu from Monday to Thursday, along with specials throughout the week.
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.
