Meet Tim Steel, the new landlord of the the Hare & Hounds, who is a restaurateur from the West End in London with award winning sites in Mayfair and Covent Garden.

He lives just a few miles from the village and will be hands-on making sure that the pub serves the needs of Wardington and its surroundings.

Gus, a very experienced Kiwi publican who has had many senior positions at London pubs, will help run the site alongside Tim. He has also relocated up here and lives just south of Brackley.

There will be fantastic traditional pub food, with ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

Tim and Gus look forward to welcoming you on the 17th of August with a free drink for the whole village!
