The Hare & Hounds Aberthin
Here at the Hare & Hounds we serve good quality food and drinks in relaxed and informal surroundings.
First and foremost, our pub is a thriving local watering hole that has been keeping locals’ thirst at bay for over 300 years. We still do exactly that, with great ales, interesting wines and homemade seasonal drinks.
Alongside the bar, we offer a small, daily changing, seasonal menu in our dining room. We use the very best produce that the Vale of Glamorgan has to offer. We have some of the most productive soil in the UK, which gives us meat, game and vegetables of the highest quality. The produce available to us from the best Vale producers, our own kitchen garden and our smallholding, dictate what is on the menu from day to day.
Everything is made from scratch in our kitchen, from our own sourdough bread and cultured butter, to fresh pasta. This is not pretentious fine dining; its just about good food, whether you’ve been for a long walk with your dog or have got something to celebrate. It is a type of regional Welsh cooking.
We are the proud holder of a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide, and we’re featured in The Good Food Guide, the Good Pub Guide and the Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide.
“The sourcing of ingredients and the integrity of food.”
Our menus all change twice a day with the seasons, and can be served in the bar, dining room or garden under our stretch tent. Locality and seasonality is key, and the menu reflects the best of the days local produce. We are back to offering our A La Carte menu.
Please click below for examples of recent menus. Note that our menus do change daily, so will be different when you dine with us.
Tom grew up in Aberthin, and spent many an afternoon playing in the garden of the Hare & Hounds as a child. He trained as a chef in London, including in the award-winning Anchor & Hope and the Michelin starred St. John. He’s returned to the pub in which he had his first pint to promote the very best of Welsh food.
