2 for 1 at Hare & Hounds

A very warm welcome is extended to all guests from the team at the Hare & Hounds in Essex, a traditional family run pub.

The menu hosts a variety of delicious British favourites, ensuring that there is a dish available to suit almost any taste.

With a great selection of food, all freshly prepared, home cooked and locally sourced, alongside a choice of real ales and fine wines, there really is something for everyone.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Sundays due to the a la carte menu not being served.

    Hello, Thank you for your feedback. With regards to Hare & Hounds, they do state on their page that the tastecard discount is not available on Sundays. This is due to the restaurant not serving their normal a la carte menu on a Sunday and in place of this they serve a set menu instead. This information can be found within the please note section on the restaurant page. Importantly, and unlike other dining schemes, the offer applies to the full a la carte menu. It cannot be used in conjunction with other special offers (which may include special set menu offers). Unfortunately this does mean that any other menus are excluded, this is usually the case because these menus are already discounted. Again, thank you for your feedback and I do hope you continue to use your membership, Kind regards, The taste team

    First thing i couldn't use my taste card as I didn't phone to book. It wasn't very clear on this app that I had to do that. Second the food me and my friend received was poorly cooked, I had the goats cheese and caramelised onion tart it was burnt the goats cheese was not soft at all really crispy and burnt. The only thing decent on the plate was the salad. The only good outcome was that when I complained about the food he took our drinks off the bill. "
