The Hare, Restaurant with rooms


Exposed bricks and wooden beams give this passionately run, part-12th Century Inn a characterful feel and two comfy bedrooms complete the picture. The self-taught chef offers 2 set menus of creative, accomplished dishes which are attractively presented, full of flavour and have some Asian influences. Good cooking, comfortable restaurant; one of our most delightful places.

The food is amazing, the setting & service perfect. Liz is a fabulous host, presents the food with great passion & knowledge.

Chef Paul's food is stunning, every course just perfect. The beautifully & tastefully renovated rooms are a great addition. Already planning our next visit.

Since the onset of the C-Virus, we've been counting down the days to The Hare reopening, and allowing us to dine with them again.

Liz, Paul & the team deserve to succeed in their quest for excellence in all aspects of food, service and hospitality.

TripAdvisor ~ July 2020

There are apparently three award-winning restaurants in North Yorkshire.

This is well-deservedly one of them and in my experience certainly better than another. Each course packed with mouthwatering flavours.
