Sunday Lunch in Newbury

Award-Winning Restaurant in Newbury, Berkshire

The Hare & Hounds: The Best Sunday Lunch in Newbury

In the heart of Speen village, nestled within West Berkshire, lies the Hare & Hounds — a pub and restaurant that's been the cornerstone of Newbury's local community for over two centuries. Its reputation is not just as a historic landmark but as a leading destination for those seeking a truly exceptional Sunday lunch.

Discover the best of West Berkshire's Sunday lunch offerings

From the moment you step into the Hare & Hounds, you're met with our rich tradition. The walls, adorned with art and photographs, pay homage to the region's rich equestrian legacy. It sets the stage for a culinary experience deeply rooted in the best of what West Berkshire has to offer.

Local, fresh, and seasonal — these are the principles that guide our menu. Think time-tested classics, but served with an inventive twist. Our starters are a great example of this; our tantalising Nduja Scotch egg receives rave reviews, while our Bloody Mary prawn cocktail has proved to be another crowd-pleaser.

Follow this with the highlight of our Sunday service: the roast. Whether you opt for the rosemary roasted leg of West Country lamb, our roasted pork belly or our exquisite wild mushroom and lentil Wellington, every dish promises to be a celebration of flavour.

Complete your meal with one of our carefully crafted desserts. Whether it's the apple & gooseberry crumble or the indulgent sticky toffee pudding, sweet-toothed satisfaction is guaranteed.

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.
