The Hare & Hounds, on the B4063 Cheltenham Road East, is located on the eastern side of the junction with Parton Road and Innsworth Lane.

A young George Harrison was hitch-hiking with his mate Paul McCartney in 1961. Paul took this photo of George in Churchdown on their travels. (story line to be confirmed)

The Hare and Hounds once sold beer from Arnold Perretts Wickwar Brewery and one of their landlords, Alfred Thomas Rose Baldaro was summonsed in 1898 for violently ejecting a customer, but the case was dismissed. He was, however, convicted and fined £1.12s.0d. including costs on 11th November 1899 for permitting drunkenness on the premises.

The ownership of the pub passed through the hands of the Cheltenham Original Brewery, Cheltenham & Hereford Breweries, West Country Breweries and Whitbread. In February 1960 a passing motorist noticed smoke and flames coming from the roof. The pub was evacuated and the fire brigade put out the fire leaving only a small amount of damage. 

The Hare and Hounds became part of the Greene King pub group in July 2004.
