The March Hare is an unspoilt traditional country free house selling a range of real ales,  ciders, wine and sprits for the discerning drinker. There are up to four real ales on offer - a varying selection from independent and local micro breweries including mild stout and porter.

There has been a Pub on the site since 1840.As The Wheatsheaf  it went from private ownership to Fordhams of Ashwell to Whitbreds. By the mid 1980’s it became The March Hare and was taken over by Admiral Taverns until its closure in 2008.

It was becoming derelict by 2010 when it was rescued by John and Janice Pritchett. After considerable refurbishment it reopened in August 2010. It remains the only pub in  Dunton and is becoming reestablished as a hub of village life used by many local organisations.. Open events include quizzes and folk music sessions.

Future Plans and Opportunities

We love our beer!

John, over the past 4 years, has had an eclectic range of real ales from large breweries and microbreweries.  Drinking at the March Hare can be an adventure under John’s guidance.  Enjoying real ale is a journey of discovery through different beer styles, brewers, seasonal real ales and hop varieties.  Real ale is a drink with charisma that can be relished, discussed and recommended.  The stories behind some of the real ales are intriguing and inspire the imagination.  At the March Hare you can develop your love of real ale.
