Overnight stay

“We went here for one night to meet with family. The place looked very welcoming and the staff were very friendly. Our room was lovely, a good size, very clean with a comfortable bed. It had opening windows which is always nice to have. We met with family and ate in the hotel restaurant. The menu choice was great as was the food. After a good nights sleep, we had breakfast there and it was very good, waitress service with a good choice. We will most DEFINITELY book it again on our next visit there to meet up with our family.”

A lovely hotel/gastro pub

“We stayed here for two nights as we were visiting local attractions. Check in was quick and the staff friendly. Our room was at the back of the hotel and quiet and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was nice with fluffy white towels and good quality toiletries. We ate in the hotel and the food was excellent and hot and although not an extensive menu there were plenty of choices and the food was beautifully cooked and very well presented. Breakfast was plentiful and good orange juice and quality coffee. A very pleasant stay and we wouldnt hesitate to return.”

50th Birthday Meal

“Booked a Sunday lunch for a family members 50th Birthday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and everyone had empty plates, we all had three courses and each course looked fantastic and tasted amazing. My belly of pork starter was delicate and very flavoursome, Sunday roast main was delicious and chocolate mousse dessert was a perfect end to a perfect meal. Can’t wait to go back and try the rest of the menu”

faultless sunday lunch

“arrived to find the parking was huge which to start with is big bonus, inside the ambiance of the restaurant was lovely, no tables squashed together which makes a change, it was so relaxing as soon as you are seated.our waitress was delightful and we were asked if we wanted water and took our drink order.there was no rush to take our food order which is just as well as we just couldn't make our minds up on what to have.when we eventually made our minds up I decided on the chicken and pork terrine and my husband had the fish cake.both were beautifully presented and tasted delicious.the mains we chose the beef and pork and the only negative was the Yorkshire pudding was enormous much too much for us but everything on the plates I really couldn't fault.i was only disappointed that I couldn't manage a dessert but as its a no brainer on us returning I shall defiantly make sure I leave room”

Truly Scrumptious

“Sunday lunch - very pleasant welcome - lovely restaurant, well spaced, not too noisy (you could carry on a conversation without having to shout to be heard) - very nice staff - food delivered quickly and efficiently - and we were genuinely surprised at how smart the presentation was - we cleared almost all of our plates over a delicious three courses - this was genuinely one of the best "pub restaurant" meals we've had - and not expensive. We will definitely be back.”

Great spot to stay and/or eat

“My husband and I were looking for a place to stay near Althorp Estate. The place could not have been better. Henry greeted us, got us checked in and helped get our baggage up to our room. Room was quaint, clean and quiet. Food at the Hopping Hare was great as well. Would highly recommend staying there if you’re in the area.”

Perfect place to unwind

“We try when ever we can to visit on a Saturday late afternoon, a couple of glasses of wine perfectly served in a pleasant environment just the place to chill after a weeks work. The staff are all charming nothing seems to much bother - it is not overly expensive and well worth a visit”

Saturday lunch with the man in my life

“A lovely lunch spent in the garden. A limited menu but what was served was truly delicious. The staff were exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely worth another visit.”

Family Lunch

“Yet another outstanding meal at the Hopping Hare. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine whilst eating our starters and then moved into the restaurant for our main courses. The staff are great and nothing is too much trouble. There was 7 of us and we had a selection of meals from the menu, all beautifully presented and delicious. Our daughter had 2 courses from the children's menu and really enjoyed her soup and sausage and mash, plenty for a hungry 11 year old. We enjoyed sampling some of the lovely gins and cocktails. A big thumbs up from all of us, thank you!”

Loved the Hopping Hare

“Though we stayed only one night, our group loved everything about the Hopping Hare! The accommodations were clean and very comfortable and the staff was outstanding in attending to our every need. We enjoyed a delicious dinner in the restaurant and an equally perfect breakfast the next morning. Cannot say enough about the hospitality and helpfulness of the staff! We would be happy for the chance to return to The Hopping Hare!”

Fabulous

“A small hotel, we found it very comfortable for our 3 night stay. And clean too. The staff are friendly and, it seemed to me, willing to go above and beyond. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. You just need to go there. Soon!”

A meal with friends

“We went to the Hopping Hare for a meal with friends and had a lovely meal..The service was good and the staff were attentive without being over baring. The staff were also aware of the menu and what was on your plate which makes a change. There is the option of B&B but as we live locally we didn't need it. All in all a very pleasant place to go and eat...”

Comfort, quirkiness and convenience

“We stayed overnight at the Hopping Hare in the top floor apartment and found it absolutely gorgeous- spotlessly clean, very comfy bed (and a huge bed at that), nice sofa and a wonderfully powerful shower and modern bathroom with a nice skylight and tiles. Decor was lovely and quirky. The staff were friendly. We visited the bar in the evening for a drink and enjoyed the atmosphere. The breakfast was good - cooked and cold options available. Would stay again, especially in that room.”

Good Food

“It had been a few years since my last visit and the Hare had changed quite a bit. The decor was slightly more upmarket, but it was the food that had changed the most. They’ve raised their game and it is really very good. A cut above your usual gastro pub.”
