    The only downside was the lack of options for vegetarians but over all we were thoroughly satisfied with our dining experience

    Meals at this gem are never disappointing! The Sunday Lunch Menu was fantastic - good range of options and delicious! The deserts were even better! The staff were friendly and attentive and we had a wonderful dininh experience (even in these strange times)

    Lovely atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff. Checked to see if dishes were vegan or vegetarian. Food was delicious. Tables were spaced far enough a part and hand sanitiser at every entrance/exit. Will go again.

    I had cod loin and it had a live worm in it. I emailed them with no response which was very disappointing.

    Had confirmation on email however when we arrived it wasn’t showing we had a booking which was slightly embarrassing/awkward. We did eventually get seated. My partner found the lady who greeted us rude. The service from then on was great and the food was lovely!!! Hats off to chef!

    An excellent meal for 4 including wine , coffee etc all for about £30 a head. As far as value for money goes I would give it 5 stars.

    We were a group of 6 celebrating my birthday. They have a lovely menu and we all enjoyed the food. One reason I like the Hopping Hare is that they have a good choice of gluten free dishes, I have almost as much choice as everyone else, this is great. The service was good too. Have been several times before and have always been consistently good, both food and service.

    Whilst i didnt like the way the tables are squeezed in which in the grander scheme of things is minor....i certainly cant fault the food which was excellent. The main of roast sirloin beef as the Sunday lunch option was outstanding as was the dessert. Definitely worth more regular visits to try the rest of the menu.
