Lansdown Road, BATH, BA1 5TJ
Only a mile from Bath city centre, The Hare & Hounds sits high on Lansdown Hill with stunning views over the valley to Solsbury Hill. Happily the feast for the eyes extends to the pub's food and drink - so tarry awhile with an eponymous pint of ale or one of over 30 wines served by the glass. The welcome is warm, the staff and service friendly, and the food unpretentiously good. In summer the terrace is much sought after for alfresco dining as you'd expect; typical dishes honey-baked figs with goats' cheese, rocket and walnuts; venison shepherd's pie with spiced red cabbage; and sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce.
