The March Hare can be described as an upmarket pub. There is a section where you can go and enjoy a drink, and then moving further back, and upstairs, there is plenty of space for dining. There is a small menu, and in a place like this, that rings alarm bells for me as it tends to mean that the vegetarian options are going to be limited.

Starters:

  • Cheddar cheese soufflé, warm Ford Farm Coastal Cheddar sauce
  • Mediterranean summer salad: smoked piquillo peppers, grilled padron peppers, courgette, aubergine, golden beetroot, bulgar wheat, haricot beans, lentils, sultanas & pine nuts

Mains:

  • Ravioli duo – goat’s cheese with rosemary, pea & mint, served with wilted spring vegetables
  • Mediterranean summer salad: smoked piquillo peppers, grilled padron peppers, courgette, aubergine, bulgar wheat, haricot beans, lentils, sultanas & pine nuts

 

As you will see, one of the options for starter and main is the same dish. I went for the cheese soufflé to start and the ravioli for main. The cheese soufflé was lovely, great cheesy taste and very light. the ravioli was also nice. Small, but nice. I also found that the the vegetarian option doesn’t really fit well alongside the meat options (steaks, roasts, stews and pies). When everyone else is having a massive steak or pie with veg and potatoes, eating a small pasta dish feels a bit weird.

Eat Without The Meat rating: 3/10
