Real Ale Ray left this review about The Hare on the Hill

The most striking part of this pub was the exterior Victorian Glazed tiles around the entrance. Once inside you will encounter a fairly modern and minimalistic interior. All the walls were painted in cream and all the woodwork was painted light blue, which gave it more of a nautical theme. There were a few hares dotted around the place to help you realise you were in the Hare on the Hill. The flooring was boarded and the bar counter was polished mahogany. There were five pumps on the bar, with three in use, two from the Moor Brewery and a Rosie's Cider. Another ale was also due to come on whilst we were there. We went for the Moor Revival and Moor Union Hop, both were in excellent condition and were priced at £4.10 a pint.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Hare on the Hill

A pleasant street corner pub in a slightly out of the way location, but only just a couple of minutes stroll from the bustling Stokes Croft, for those taking the effort to search it out it offers something of an oasis of tranquillity away from somewhat frenetic pubs on the strip. It was at one time a Bath Ales pub, possibly their first in fact, but as JW has said below it’s now leased to an independent operator.

It would appear that it’s recently been refurbished and is now quite contemporary in appearance with an etched glass entrance door and sanded wooden boards on the floor. Wooden panelling on the lower part of the walls has been painted in duck egg blue and this extends to the wooden bench seating around the front wall of the pub, which was scattered with maroon cushions. The pub wraps partially around a central bar counter which had a pile of appetising looking scotch eggs on one end and several leather bar stools for punters to sit at. A couple of plasma screens were showing the rugby. Some small partitions with leaded and frosted glass divided up one side of the pub in to separate booths.

Beers on tap were Cheddar’s Goats Leap, RCH PG Steam, Gem, Moor Nor’hop and XT 13 Pacific Red as well as another two or three on keg dispensed from taps on the wall behind the bar. Unusually I neglected to note the cider choice, although I think it was fairly uninspiring and may well have been Bath’s Bounders.

This has just reopened after being let by Bath Ales to an independent group of people to run. Externally, minor changes have occurred and internally it has a fresh pale blue coat of paint to the interior woodwork. An array of 5 hand pumps grace the bar with another 6 taps behind the wall which seems to be a common design/trait of many new or refurbished bars. Real ales from Bath Ales remain and feature alongside other local offering from Moors and alike.
