New for 2015 Our new restaurant THE BARN is now open!See the photos , it's stunning! Well appointed, modern bedrooms with free wireless internet; highly popular restaurant; friendly locals Pub & dining bar; Extensive free parking. Located 3 miles from M4 jct 13, and 1 mile from A34, ideally situated for business or leisure. We are just a mile from the town centre and 3 miles from the famous Newbury racecourse, and are in close proximity to all major businesses. Privately owned by the Nelsey family since 2005 this 17th Century Inn has recently been refurbished to reflect both it's heritage and the needs of both local and travelling guests. The stable and cottage style bedrooms are arranged around parking for 60+ cars, with the coach rooms being in the main inn (the stairs are a wee bit steep).

Relax, while you enjoy a choice of 3 real ales, beers, quality wines, excellent food, and all in the comfort of our refurbished Bar and Restaurant. The Inn keeps growing from strength to strength, thanks mainly to the friendly staff and management. But don't just take our word for it, come stay with us and find out for yourselves. We look forward to welcoming you Jonathan & Jean Nelsey and all the staff.

A traditional coaching house and is HIGHLY recommended. Over the years I have stayed at many hotels, the Hare & Hounds hotel in particular surpassed expectation in more ways than one. Customer service was second to none, better than so called 5 star establishments I have

Dear Clive Thank for a great review! As an independent we know that the onus is on us to do the little things that mean a lot but don’t really take a great deal of extra effort! As a coaching inn having a proper pub bar, good food and comfortable rooms is a must. But having a group of people that are both a pleasure to work alongside and who believe in the way we operate is our greatest asset! Let us know your menu choice ready to ease your stress next time around and we look forward to seeing you Many thanks again on behalf of all at the Inn Jonathan & Jean

As a group of friends who have been meeting here for four years, this has been our best stay. Staff amazingly friendly, nothing too much trouble. Rooms have been upgraded too. Menu varied and interesting.

Though I've never stayed in the English countryside before I was readily convinced that this was the genuine article. The staff was lovely and helpful, taking laundry and finding me an adapter for my computer and calling a taxi on my departure. The restaurant had nice roasts

Dear Rachel Thanks you for your detailed review and your comments on our member of staff. So sorry that you did not enjoy your room. The site you booked on does emphasise this is a small double with small shower room and we do also show pictures. Whilst the rooms may not be ideal. They are priced competitively for what they are and include our excellent breakfast. I shall check the fan noise but it is normal for fans to stay on for this period in hotels. We aim to please all our guests and had you mentioned your disappointment we would have attempted to make amends in the morning. Please do give us another try, we have an award winning restaurant and as you say, some excellent staff. Those wanting a merger room please choose a cottage room which for £10 extra, really are great value Sincerely Jonathan Owner

I’m arriving by cruise ship to Southampton. How do I get to you?
Hi, The best would be by train Southampton to Newbury, then taxi to us. Alternatively if you have a car then head towards M3 London, Winchester. At junction 9 leave the motorway and follow the A34 to Newbury. Take the junction marked Newbury/Hungerford A4 and at the top of the slip road turn left towards Newbury and we are around the corner on the right. I hope this helps. Kind regards Debbie Bah Reservations Manager
