For all our latest offers to sign up to our mailing list!
Jazz has been in operation at the Hare & Hounds for 20 years and is still a very popular night!
We host some incredibly talented and well respected musicians every Tuesday evening.
While we love to offer free entry, the success & continuation of the jazz is very much reliant on customers supporting the pub itself.
Thank you to everyone who supports the jazz on a regular basis!
