Impressive committed cooking with glorious views

A mile and a half north of Bath, The Hare & Hounds is an enticing bolt hole with glorious views from its hilltop location. Huge leaded windows look over the terrace and allow light into the neat interior where wood proliferates: tables, chairs, panelling and floor. It's relaxed and informal, but the kitchen has a serious commitment to food and draws on top-grade produce. Starters might include pan-fried scallops with black pudding, cauliflower purée and hazelnut butter, while main course could bring venison shepherd's pie with spiced red cabbage and parsnip crisps. Desserts are another strong suit: try rice pudding with mulled pears and winter fruits.
