Although the H&H has been cited in other posts recently, I just thought that I should mention here that the Friends of Memorial Park have had their Christmas lunch at the Hare and Hounds for the last two years. The first time we went in December and had the full festive fare, the food was excellent and they allowed us to pull the tables together to create one big one, resulting in our first "do" where we were all able to talk to each other. This Christmas we decided to go in January and chose from the standard menu, which was exceptional, and the hospitality superb.
As they always have my favourite Robbies brew on (Dissy Blonde) I've also been a number of times with Mrs Admin. I can't praise the quality of the food enough and I think it's the best pub food I've had in the area.
