Hare and Hounds to re-open

I am delighted to confirm that the Hare & Hounds will be re-opening from late afternoon on Friday 10th November. For the first few weeks, there will be a full drinks bar but food will only be light snacks until a full menu is introduced at a later date. This is because the tenants are still in the process of appointing a chef, and there is also some work still to be done in the kitchen.
There has been a tremendous team effort over the last couple of weeks to help with all the preparations for the pub re-opening. A big thank you to all the volunteers who gave so much of their time to perform cleaning and painting tasks. The Steering Group, and the tenants, Andy and Richard, are very grateful for all of your support.
There are a number of activities being planned, centred around the pub, including a Christmas Craft Fair on 12th November.
