It is known that the Hare and Hounds was located at the north-eastern side of Aylburton, that it had opened by 1796 and two friendly societies met in the pub at that time, but other than that details are sparse.

The Hare and Hounds is not listed in the 1891 licensing book of Gloucestershire suggesting that it had ceased trading by then. The building was demolished in the mid 20th Century, so the precise location is not determined.  I would suggest the Hare and Hounds was approximately opposite Maplefield at the Lydney side of Aylburton, not far from Taurus Crafts. In 1840 the pub was owned by Charles Bathurst and Richard Evans was in residence, and Andrew Young is recorded as landlord in 1856 and 1861 references.
