50% off at The Hare and Hounds

Dating back to 1628, The Hare and Hounds is a character-filled country pub found within the beautiful Kent countryside. Located in the picturesque village of Northbourne, just a short drive from the town of Deal along the Kent coast, The Hare and Hounds has been recently taken over by the Blueprint Pub Company and has undergone a complete renovation in both style and menu. Replacing the typical country pub menu is a fabulously authentic Italian menu filled with tasty tapas, pastas and the like.

Everything is prepared fresh on the premises daily by the expert kitchen team at The Hare and Hounds, and as many ingredients as possible are sourced from the local area. Among the large selection of tantalising tapas are dishes such as deep fried golden whitebait with homemade tartare sauce; homemade saffron rice balls filled with pork mince and peas served with a pesto sauce and deep fried mashed potato filled with cheese and salami and coated in breadcrumbs. Main courses are ideal for those with a larger appetite and highly recommended is the seafood linguine with tomato, garlic, white wine, chilli, anchovies and squid and the pan fried breast of chicken cooked with a light tomato sauce, mushrooms and topped with mozzarella cheese.

It may be Italian all the way with the food, but the style is most definitely country English pub. Inglenook fireplaces with piles of logs roar with warmth in the winter time and the dark red walls and little table lamps provide a cosy, romantic glow. Summertime’s are spent in the large beer garden with its picnic tables perfect for al fresco dinners.

    I went there with the most demanding 'food critic' in the form of my pregnant wife and we both loved it! The starters were amazing and the pizzas one of the best we have had in a long time. Great little place with friendly and efficient staff, would not ask for more. Will definitely pay a visit again as soon as back in the area. "

    What a great little find. On route to a wedding reception at the Blazing Donkey, five minutes away. A small village pub with very helpful staff and fantastic service. Pizzas were cooked well and far better than any I have tasted in large chain restaurants. They also offer take away! Thank you for a lovely meal - if we are ever that way again, we will definitely be back for more! "
