The owners say:
The village of Anstey is within easy reach of the towns of Leicester and Loughborough and is known as the “Gateway to Charnwood Forest”. Situated on the main through road to “Bradgate Park “The Hare” as it is fondly known by the locals is ideally situated as a much welcome refreshment point to recharge the batteries for the many visitors to “Bradgate Park” and the enthusiastic walkers, cyclists and joggers that are always seen in the village.
The 150 year old traditional pub of wooden beams and tiled floors looks at its best during the summer months with colourful hanging baskets and window boxes. Inside there are four separate and very different bar areas, serving our “Cask Marque” recommended selection of permanent and guest real ales.
With the pub being keen supporters of Leicester Tigers and sport in general Rupert ensures that coach transport is on time to get his many locals to “Fortress Welford Road “in plenty of time to cheer on the team.
The interior of the pub is adorned with rugby and sporting memorabilia collected from around the world personally by Rupert throughout his travels supporting British sporting individuals and teams
“The Hare” is run by the Gibbons family with Rupert – the ex rugby player looking after the bar and Helen providing the quality pub food. Weekdays there is a fine bar menu served with offerings from sandwiches made to order to heartier dishes including steak & ale pie and on Sundays the ever popular roast lunch which always has Topside of British Beef on the menu.
