Are you looking for an honest and independent review of The Hare & Hounds, Tetbury? We stayed here for our 15th wedding anniversary and I was so impressed, I thought I’d share my thoughts.
Last week, my boy and I celebrated our fifteenth wedding anniversary.
I distinctly remember my fifteenth birthday.
Also, we’re now out of the realms of paper and tin — in terms of an appropriate gift — and have launched into another sphere entirely.
But given the fact that we have enough wine glasses to sink a ship; and lead-crystal decanters are not really our bag. My boy had to make do with a pair of personalised cufflinks and I was treated to a surprise weekend away!
My parents had generously offered to look after the twins overnight and my boy’s planning was meticulous. All organised beautifully.
Apart from the weather, which was totally out of his hands.

The Hare and Hounds in Tetbury
Saturday dawned cold and overcast. Actually that’s an understatement. Biblical rain and winds — courtesy of Hurricane Imogen — were sweeping the UK.
Even getting in and out of the car resulted in the ‘fresh out of the shower’ look.
Anyway. Unperturbed by the inclement conditions, off we went!
He’d booked for us to stay at The Hare & Hounds in Tetbury in The Cotswolds.
A beautiful honey-coloured building, with mullioned windows and a lovely interior.
A ‘Very Good Double’ at The Hare and Hounds in Tetbury
Our room was a ‘very good double’ and it was, indeed, very good.
There was a big comfy bed, a little seating area with a TV (good job too as the rugby was on) and even a desk for me to sit and practice my brush lettering.
The perfect setting for a romantic getaway.
The Beaufort Restaurant at The Hare & Hounds
We ate in The Beaufort Restaurant —which has been awarded a 2 AA Rosette (no pictures, sadly, as I’d banned my phone from coming along) — suffice to say the food was delicious.
Rock bass, scallops, venison. Complimentary amuse bouche and an extensive wine menu.
Needless to say, we went to bed very full and very happy.
The next day dawned bright and beautiful. We were treated to blue skies and not a whisper of the rain we’d had the day before.
Such a lovely, lovely place, in which to celebrate a special event and I’d highly recommend it. I’m only hoping that I don’t have to wait another 15 years to go again!
