Recently had our wedding reception here. The staff were brilliant, Jenna in particular was so helpful and accomodating. We had a bespoke menu for our wedding breakfast which we were able to request particular dishes and make changes. We had a very last minute change to the guest list which the hopping hare dealt with superbly. It was the perfect... More

Hotel very placed for visiting friends. Very stylish decor extremely good taste. Evening food very good well presented sharing dishes, something for everyone. Breakfast a little disappointing, bacon over cooked and had been kept quite a long time I think. Sausages tough. Staff extremely friendly and helpful and overall a very good experience and would stay again on next visit.

Dear Margaret, Many thanks for recommending The Hopping Hare and for awarding us top marks, very much appreciated by the team. We will take your feedback on board and I will investigate why the extract fan was left on as they should be switched off when the kitchen closes. We hope you can visit again soon. Kind regards, David. More

I expect this hotel keeps busy with business guests during the week. We arrived at the weekend when a wedding party was going on which didn't cause us any inconvenience, the staff were perfectly capable of dealing with our needs at the same time.
