Welcome to the Hare & Hounds
The Hare & Hounds lies in the heart of beautiful East Devon, between Sidmouth and Honiton. Inside this traditional country Free House you will find wooden beams, log fires, local ales and a warm welcome for all the family.
Famous for years for the quality of our Carvery, we also offer an extensive menu of freshly prepared classic pub food. Outside, as well as two car parks, there is a children’s play area set within a large garden which boasts beautiful views down the valley to Sidmouth and the sea.
The surrounding area has many footpaths and archeological sites making this a popular destination for walkers. Dogs are welcome in our Tap Room and Lounge Bar.
Although renowned for food, The Hare & Hounds is still a real country pub and you are just as welcome to drop in for a a pint of real ale or a glass of wine.

"Best carvery in Devon and Cornwall and that’s a fact. Will be visiting again soon for another birthday lunch. Nice tables, friendly staff, good prices. Love it here”
"We had a couple of meals in here whilst on a 2 night break in February. Both meals, evening and lunch, were fantastic. Nice big portions and very hot and tasty.”
Excellent customer service
"We went on Sunday afternoon for a Carvery as a group of six. A young member of staff found us a table and we all had a delicious Carvery meal.
All the members of staff we met were friendly and polite and the food was delicious.”
The best carvery for miles!
"We live locally and have visited on several occasions, both as a couple and with a large family group.
This is a lovely old pub with lots of character in a rural setting with lovely views.
I’ve always had delicious meals here: fish pie, ploughman’s salad etc. and not forgetting the amazing carvery!
I’m not usually a carvery type, but after my mum had this on one occasion, and mentioned that the beef was the most tender she’d ever had, I just had to try it. All the meats are juicy and tender, and there is a great selection of vegetables, stuffing, Yorkshire puddings, sausages and even pork crackling. The gravy has lots of flavour, not like the usual watery stuff you get in other carvery restaurants.
I would highly recommend a visit…dogs welcome too!.”
Delicious, filling, great service
"Party of five. Staff were polite and helpful when ordering. Jovial and professional to a fault. Quinoa burger, lentil curry, fish pie, sweet potato lasagne, kids fish fingers were ordered. Came respectably quickly. All was delicious with all plates cleared. Raspberry ripple fudge cake was glorious and massive. Cost was normal.
So good in fact we booked a table for the next night before we left.”
