We were delighted to find this welcoming pub on Fathers day having not booked anywhere and having been greeted with surprise at our temerity at wanting an unreserved table in some other near by establishments.

We used to use this pub when we lived in Ripon 30 years ago so decided to have a trip down memory lane when back visiting friends....wow...I so enjoyed this meal...sea bass with a crab veloute...absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The others had steak which was apparently lovely too! Huge onion rings...very crispy as they should be but rarely are!... More

Consistently great food and atmosphere at Hare & Hounds! Called in on Saturday evening for a quick drink only to be still there hours later after a lovely meal. Eaten here many times and it has never failed to impress both on the food and service front. We will be back many more times I am sure.

After a morning visiting the country show at Ripley we decided to head North, maybe we'd see a nice pub. At a difficult right turn in a bend we too our life in our hands and with a heavy foot we hurtled into the country lanes leading to the Hare & Hounds. A pretty village, and an attractive old pub...

The previous reviews had us waiting on the porch at opening time last night. What a delightful find and well worth the plaudits given to this establishment. Town hostelries are all well and good, however village pubs like this need to be saved. Warm welcome given and no feeling of being in an empty pub. I imagine it is really... More

En route to Northumberland. We followed the brown sign for lunch - what a delight, lovely warm and friendly welcome. Great menu choice.

Had the pleasure of lunch at the Hare & Hounds again on a recent visit to nearby Wetherby and Harrogate. Certainly worth a detour if you're a food lover. Being a (partial) veggie, its hard to find good variations on pub menues. The salmon starter was HUGE .... great value but I couln'd fit a pudding in (will have to... More

We found this restaurant by chance on Easter sunday. I had onion soup followed by fish pie. My wife had onion soup followed by pork roast. This was probably the best Sunday lunch pub meal we have ever had. Absolutely delicious. Beautiful pub and location. 4 star not 5 only because pork crackling was missing. But my wife only realised...
