The Hare and Hounds is a gorgeous 16th Century coaching inn set in the pretty village of Levens, in the Lyth Valley, on the edge of the Lake District. It’s a proper village pub, full of character, with a mean cocktail list, local cask ales, great craft beers and delicious comfort food. It has rooms too, beautifully styled with lots of thoughtful touches to make for a lovely stay. Run by Ash and Becky Dewar, who bought the pub in 2013 and have been lovingly taking care of it ever since, The Hare and Hounds welcomes everyone – kids, muddy boots and dogs included.
The pub has been closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic since 20th March. We are delighted to say we will be opening for a TAKEAWAY ONLY service from Friday 19th June.
