Booked a table for lunch based on the strength of the reviews on TA. We had a super lunch, very good quality, all freshly prepared and a very pleasant table too. The service was attentive so would recommend the restaurant to anybody.

Got this off Trip Advisor as I am on a bit of a mission with pubs with rooms rather than featureless monolith hotels. Arrived and the greeting was okay (bit dour) and shown the room - very nicely presented and clean. Went for some food and pleased that there was no issue with a starter and side to eat (see... More

Dear C4L, Many thanks for your review and positive feedback. I am delighted that you sampled the best ploughman's you have ever had at The Hopping Hare, with brilliant chips, delivered by chirpy servers. Top quality food and fantastic customer service are our highest priorities and I am pleased we delivered on both. We look forward to your next visit.... More

Really good food, I requested gluten free options and this was catered for, even down to the mince pie. The room was nice comfy bed and clean decor, All staff polite and friendly. Not sure i could ask for more from a restaurant.

Stayed for one night in room 6. Very comfy with all you could need. Shower cubicle is not designed for the well proportioned. I am quite dinky but felt quite enclosed, but shower was good.

This small hotel/restaurant/bar may have a slightly unprepossessing situation, but it more than makes up for it in every other way. My room was small but really well-appointed, comfortable and clean. It was perfect for one person but if you were a couple it might be a good idea to try and get one of the larger rooms. The food,... More

We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Hopping Hare, where we had a lovely time, the staff were extremely helpful and considerate, nothing was too much trouble. We had a king size room which was extremely comfortable and well decorated, the only slight downside was that the heated towel rail in the bathroom had been disconnected. The... More

Conveniently off the main road, very clean and well presented hotel restaurant. Rooms very well appointed, tea and coffee provided, modern furnishings, surprisingly quiet rooms. Very reasonably priced, food was good too. Definitely recommend this hotel.
