Welcome to the Hare and Hounds, Leavenheath

We are a traditional freehouse country pub set in the beautiful Suffolk countryside village of Leavenheath. Leavenheath is near the towns of Sudbury and Colchester and the picturesque villages of Stoke by Nayland, Boxford, Assington and Nayland.

We keep a selection of real ales on handpump and offer a selection of other drinks too. We serve home cooked food from 12 – 2pm Tuesday to Saturday and dinner 6 – 9pm Tuesday to Saturday. Sunday lunches we offer a range of roast dinners but for those after something different we always have 5 or 6 other options so there is something for everyone. We have also added a few Austrian specialities from the classic Schnitzel to a hearty Beef Gulasch with traditional Austrian bread dumplings.

On this site you will find the latest news from us including what beers we have available and coming soon as well as what special events we have coming up. Amongst other events, we host regular quizzes fundraising for Leavenheath Cricket Club, Leavenheath Ladybirds Preschool and Stoke by Nayland Football Club. We also have regular live music events which you can find more about here
