Award-Winning British Pub & Restaurant in Speen, Newbury

Come and join us for a meal at the Hare & Hounds, an award-winning pub in the picturesque village of Speen, Newbury. Known for our farm-to-fork approach and an inviting selection of drinks, we're a cherished spot in this historic area of West Berkshire.

Our menus are designed around fresh, locally sourced ingredients. We proudly collaborate with the finest producers in the region to ensure everything we serve is seasonal, sustainable and supports our local community.

With dishes designed to delight all diners, from devoted meat lovers to vegetarian and vegan guests, our menus are crafted to ensure everyone at the table experiences something uniquely delicious.


Introducing Summer Sundays

This summer, let us take the hard work (and uncertainty!) out of a BBQ with our brand new grill menu, exclusively available on Sundays. Perfect for those weekends when you don’t want to take a chance on the weather, or want to spend time pouring a glass of Pimm’s rather than prepping in the kitchen, our new Summer Sundays menu means lovers of food cooked over open flames may never be without.

Still looking for our traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings? Fear not, our signature Sunday roasts grace our menu all year round for your fix of bottomless roast potatoes and yorkshire puddings, served with lashings of house gravy.

Gather round. Summer’s served.
