If you like an old pub in new surroundings, then The Hare pub in Harlow has got to be a strong contender. It was built in the 16th or 17th century and by the wonky roof and uneven exterior walls, you can tell that this is a pub with years of experience.
Inside, the bar has an almost rural feel with many farming implements on show and the dark decor hints at days gone by. A good selection of beers and ales are matched with good pub food.
For those wanting a quieter drink, the Snug offers an open fire and cosy leather sofas to relax into. The flagstone floors and low beams add to the ambience. I have spent many quiet evenings there, and would thoroughly recommend it. Overall, The Hare is a nice, characteristic pub that is warm and inviting.
