I visited the Three Hares at Bilbrough as it is a good half way meeting point to catch up with a friend, so our visit was a bit "stick a pin in the map and see where we end up" ! This is a nice country pub with a nice feel about it. The Owners / Managers are friendly and welcoming. They are clearly trying to do something a little bit different with the food, but for me, sadly this did not work. The Hungarian sharing sizzling plate in theory is a good idea if you like plain food, and you dont mind cooking it yourself at your table. For me, this was sadly lacking. No seasonings or flavourings for the meats of fish. The soup like liquid was tasteless. The main gripe for me is the pice - at £24 for the plate of chopped up fish and £22 for a plate of thinly sliced meat, I find these prices extorinate to say the least. I expect top quality restaurant food for these prices, where at least a chef has had some input to making the food taste and look wonderful. Unless I am missing a trick here, this really did not work for me and at these prices I am very surprised they can make it work. They do offer a Tapas menu also, which may have been better value and involved some cooking by the chef!
