The staff at the Hopping Hare are always friendly and helpful. Our wedding reception was held here with just over 50 guests. We were able to work with the staff and chefs to select a menu for the evening, giving all our guests a choice of 5 options for all three courses - not something you often get at wedding... More

Have visited a number of times and never disappointed. Menu always varied and regularly changed to use in season and local produce. Food is not basic pub food it is a very high standard and offers a good selection of non standard choices. Always packed full of flavour, well cooked and presented.

The food here is magnificent and this restaurant has something really special about it. I seem to only come here for special occasions but I've realised that this place outclasses so many other places I visit regularly that I'm going to come here instead more often.

Stayed here whilst Visiting the area. It's a nice pub really, room we stayed in was modern but very very small - breakfast was ok, but again the self service area where you get coffee etc was in a very confined area situated on part of the bar. All in ok and ok place, but nothing special. Bit overpriced really.

Our prices are per room and include breakfast, Wifi, free parking etc and are very good value compared to our competitors. Kind regards, David. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When my family bought the Hopping Hare in 2006 our aim was to create an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, somewhere just a bit different. A place to dine, stay or meet up and relax with friends, family or colleagues. We didn't want it to be stuffy, intimidating or over the top. We set about creating luxurious rooms, a subtle, sophisticated bar with a great selection of quality drinks and a restaurant offering some of the best food to be found in Northampton. As a family owned and operated business, we set the standards on service, value for money, atmosphere and personality. No detail has been overlooked in creating a hotel, restaurant and bar in Northampton with an individual blend of 21st-century chic, high standards and a laid back friendly feel that we are sure you'll begin to notice as soon as you step inside. We've got to know some of our guests well because they come back time after time. In fact, 2010 saw the completion of an extension to the hotel to meet increased demand for accommodation from a growing clientele. My team and I would love to welcome you to stay for brunch, lunch, dinner or just a drink. Once the Hopping Hare is on your radar we guarantee you'll be back.
