About our venue

The Hare & Hounds, refurbished in Autumn 2014 and now part of our Golden Oak Inns brand, is located in the picturesque village of Holcombe Brook, four miles north of Bury and just three miles from the M66. It only takes 45 minutes to drive from Manchester. With open moorland just around the corner this is great rambling country. This listed building dates back to the 1600’s where we have retained a traditional feel with contemporary touches it has a lighter and brighter feel. Two open fires give it a warm, home from home atmosphere in the winter time. Ours is the only pub in the village and offers a friendly, inviting venue to pop in to for a drink or a great meal. We are famous for our real ales, offering up to ten at any one time, including the locally brewed Bank Top Flat Cap. Quality pub food is available every day, with a varied menu offering cooked to order dishes.  The rear of the pub is within a few steps to the woods and the garden overlooks the brook. We show all major matches on the screens around the bar and there is also a pool table for a friendly game with friends. Next time you are out walking or just passing nearby, call in and have a bite to eat or try one of our special brews. You will be sure of a warm welcome.
