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.”

Great Meal

“Ate here to try somewhere different to our usual places. Did book a table but don’t think necessary. Parking ample. All very clean. Staff really friendly. Menu choice is varied at a reasonable price. Food arrived in a good time. Will definitely be going back.”

Afternoon Tea

“Was invited here for my friends baby shower. Staff were very welcoming and beautiful venue. We sat down to afternoon tea which include a wide assortment of tea choices or the option of champagne. Three tier choice of sandwiches, scones and desserts. We were all very pleased with the quality and amount. Many of us enjoyed drinks from the bar which include beautiful presented gin. Would recommend a visit.”

Excellent - What a delight

“Having spent 2 nights in a very unsatisfactory hotel my partner found the Hopping Hare for me and how glad I was to arrive to a bright and vibrant place. Great room. Great food. Lovely professional staff. Will certainly stay again.”

Delicious

“We visited the Hopping Hare for an early evening meal with family and friends on a recommendation. We were certainly glad we did. The staff were friendly, the restaurant itself is decorated and furnished to a high standard, whilst remaining warm and welcoming, and the food? Delicious. We all enjoyed everything we had, including the kids. Portion sizes were just right and of a reasonable price. And just FYI, the Snickers dessert needs to be tried to be believed. Wow!”

Excellent

“Went there for lunch one Sunday. Family of 5 - 4 adults and 1 child. The service was excellent, very attentive without being intrusive. The menu gave a good choice of dishes. The quality and quantity was excellent - we left the table full! Prices, including drinks, was reasonable and in line with the quality.”

Fantastic Food

“My wife and I stayed for 1 night in April and we found the hotel to be very comfortable with a nice welcome. The atmosphere is calm and inviting. However the food was fantastic. Clearly a hidden gem in Northampton the chef should be commended. All 3 courses were interesting and delicious. The fish dishes especially. Staff were always helpful too. Would definitely stay again”

Afternoon Tea - What a Treat!

“As a big fan of afternoon tea I was excited to hear that The Hopping Hare had started doing it. It is a lovely drive for us, so decided to make an afternoon of it with the family. We weren’t disappointed, all of the staff are so helpful and food was delicious. There was a good range of tea so we all tried something different. The sandwiches were all so tasty with ample filling and different types of bread, and the sausage roll was devine. There was a lovely selection of cakes, which were better than any I’ve tasted before. They were beautifully presented and looked almost too good to eat! The home made scones were perfect and we had ample jam and fresh cream to go round. It was all topped off with pink bubbles which made for an extra special treat. We had a wonderful afternoon with the family. Despite our best attempts we didn’t manage to finish all the cake, so were provided with containers to take some treats home. Thanks to The Hopping Hare for making everything perfect, we shall be back!!”

Excellent Stay and Fab Meal for Large Party

“We stayed here recently over the weekend and the stay was wonderful! Breakfast is absolutely delicious and they cater superbly for vegetarians. The staff are so welcoming and very hard working! Props to the gentleman behind the bar he worked incredibly hard all weekend. We ate in the restaurant also with a big party of 20 and the food was incredible. High quality and we had to issues whatsoever. They turned so many tables away that night so I would definitely book if you would like to go. Highly recommend.”
