The Hare & Hounds now has a large marquee covering much of the front area, allowing for alfresco drinking and dining without the possibility of getting wet. With the sun blazing (maybe a slight exaggeration), we chose to be away from the shelter.

As with many pubs these days, the ale choice was not immediately obvious. We enquired to be told that Tribute & Landlord were the options. I'd been hoping to find something from the local Brightwater Brewery.

A trip to the toilet revealed a Brightwater Daisy Gold pumpclip with a glass over the handpull. In addition, there was Brightwater Claygate Cider. We decided to stay for a second to sample the cider, only to be told that it too was unavailable.

Food smelt very tempting. The second lady we spoke to was clearly of French origin and sure enough, the restaurant here specialises in French food. Not a bad pub, with friendly and accommodating staff.

A substantial pub in the heart of the village, with a very floral exterior. Inside is pleasantly aged with plenty of dark wood, albeit with a lowish ceiling painted white. Behind a rustic-style brick fireplace is a side room with a French flavour, dark red walls and pictures, used as the restaurant (which indeed has a French basis, but with substantial English content too). Outside there are rows of tables at the front and further patio and garden space round the back. On handpump were Tribute and a local ale from nearby Brightwater, plus Brightwater's cider. Food is not cheap but good.

From the exterior The Hare And Hounds looks to be the most pubby of the three pubs I passed by on the main drag through Claygate, It is however quite food orientated with a fair bit of the inside area set out for dining, there are though,bar stools along the bar area so it seems drinking only is also welcomed.
Six Hand Pumps all in operation with the choice of London Pride ,Tribute,Old Peculiar,6x,Brightwater Daisy Gold and some beer from Caledonion I now forget.
I tried a pint of the locally brewed Daisy Gold, a 4.0% beer fairly average as it turned out, the most remarkable thing about it was being charged £4.20 for the pleasure.
Its a nice enough spot for a pint if you are prepared to pay the ridiculous prices,I think I will pass it by next time.
As Rex discoverd some five years ago there were a few "bonjours" flying around, marginally better than "have a nice day" I suppose.
