Quite Light Lunch after Ripley Show

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... read more

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. Cauliflower and cheese soup was lovely, so thick, creamy and tasty - I had it with a nice ham sandwich. My husband had the seabass special - one of the best he has had - this is... More

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...

We have been for an evening meal with friends which was amazing, so decided to try Sunday Lunch, the food was gorgeous and the staff were friendly and helpful. I can't fault any aspect of the meal in anyway, it is well worth a visit.

As usual there was a warm welcome, at this traditional public house. The food was excellent, same quality as evening meals. Freshly cooked fish and chips, beautifully chunky white fish and hand cut chips with mushy peas and tartar sauce, yummy. all this and great value too. It is so refreshing to find somewhere that sells real food these days.... More

Enjoyed Sunday lunch here with a last minute booking for a family lunch following a Birthday party the previous evening. Pleasant staff and efficient service in this 'local' with a homely feel. The fish special of scallops, prawns, bacon and black pudding was splendid.
