Welcome to The Hare.

We are pleased to announce that we have been crowned "Restaurant Of The Year" 2019 by Yorkshire Life Magazine! We are so proud of our little team and we look forward to seeing you soon!

The Hare, a 12th Century Inn, but 21st Century Restaurant, nestled in the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors, in the pretty countryside village of Scawton, near Helmsley.

Award winning Head Chef, Paul Jackson and his team, creates and prepares beautiful food for you from seasonally available local produce, to give you an exceptional fine dining experience in a relaxed and intimate setting.

We offer Tasting menus only (NO a la carte). Each dish is individually designed to showcase our team's ability, local produce at its finest and to incorporate different cooking techniques including both modern and traditional methods. Our personalities are reflected on each individual plate.

Please note, we are continuously changing the Menu so some dishes may vary depending on seasons.


Accommodation and Dinner Packages

Although we are still in the process of providing accommodation within the grounds of The Hare we have teamed up with a local holiday cottage who have given us preferential rates on one nights stay. We can organise the stay and organise your transport to and from the restaurant. Just let us know what date you have in mind and we will do the rest!

We can now offer dinner packages from £230 for two people including transport and overnight stay at a nearby cottage. Email us or call us 01845597769

(Please be aware we are three seperate businesses who have come together in order to offer this package. Packages are subject to availability and prices may vary depending on dates of booking and dependant on each business tariffs)
