Sunday lunch for 6 of us. Slight delay waiting for table but sat outside with a drink so no problem. Food order plus more drinks promptly taken when we got to table. Starters, mains and puddings all very good . Thought service was excellent throughout.

Visited recently for my birthday and had the best evening. Our waiter was amazing (unsure of his name but believe it may have been the host) treated us like we were the only people in on a packed Friday evening. Even surprised us with complimentary...bubbles for my birthday. Compliments to the chefs, food was exquisite. Genuinely had the best evening, this is my favourite place to eat.More

Another incredible meal at The Hopping Hare! The food is absolutely divine and I can’t stop thinking about the Duo of Pork I had as my main. Not to mention their famous Sticky Toffee Pudding!! This place cannot be faulted, and the chef is Masterchef...quality!More

What an amazing hotel experience. This hotel has it all. An absolutely beautiful hotel, gorgeous comfortable beds, and an absolutely stunning dining room and bar. The owners have clearly taken time to make this a memorable stay, the staff are so helpful friendly and welcoming....The whole hotel is to the highest standard of cleanliness and the food and whole dining experience was the best we had ever had. All 4 courses were exquisite, fresh and perfectly delicious. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Staff did everything possible to make sure we were happy, even helping us out when my husbands van wouldn't start, and giving us a cup of tea for the road! An amazing memorable experience, thank you so muchMore

A fabulous stay from start to finish. All the staff are friendly & efficient & nothing was too much trouble. The room was great and we heard no noise at all which is always a bonus considering it is a pub & restaurant. We dined...in the restaurant & the food & staff were amazing. It was a very busy night but the service was great & the food exceptional. Breakfast was great & once again the staff were efficient & very friendly. Thank you to everyone at The Hopping Hare for making our weekend very special will most definitely will be back.More

Decent surroundings. Great, friendly service. Fairly limited menu but the food on it is absolutely excellent. Don't miss the crusty bread - baked on the premises. Best bread I've ever tasted!More

A great place to stay! Excellent value for money, fabulous food and outstanding service. From the moment we arrived, we were super impressed. The hotel restaurant and bar area (which is also where we checked in) is modern and stylish and we received a really...warm welcome. We were given a room upgrade on arrival, as the hotel wasn’t full, which was a really nice touch. Our room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated and very well equipped with water, biscuits, tea & coffee. The highlight of our stay however was our evening meal. The food was outstanding and the service fabulous. Special thanks must go to Rosie and Sarah who looked after us really well and were so friendly and helpful whilst also being efficient. Our Vegetarian breakfasts (included in the room price) were also excellent. Value for money wise (£75.00 B&B) we were SERIOUSLY impressed and we would not hesitate to recommend or stay at The Hopping Hare again in future. Thank you so much for a lovely stay and for making us so welcome!More

All three courses cooked to absolute perfection. They obviously have a very good chef. I have eaten at M* restaurants that would struggle to match this, and their price would be five times this. We had a really good laugh with the staff too -...particularly about there being lions on the menu (loin got autocorrected), and stabbing someone with the stake knife. All good fun, and in the best taste. This place is awesome and under valued.More
