The Hare and Hounds, Old Warden, Bedfordshire

£10.95 for the Burger of the Day (which was lamb) and hand cut chips. There was a lot of garlic mayo, but there was also a lot of promise...

Today we took a 10 mile drive to Old Warden, a typical chocolate box village surrounded by fields and immaculate gardens - write burger detectives @gubgub08 & @hayleymudge, aka Diagnosis Burger, reporting for Midsomer Burgers' debut review. Nice as it was, our trip wasn't about the scenery. We'd come specifically to check out The Hare and Hounds pub on account of it's reputation: it was named Best Dining Pub in Bedfordshire 2010 in the Good Pub Guide, and appears as a "recommended restaurant" in the Good Food Guide.
