Top class food with the service to match. Very relaxed atmosphere. Lots of personal touches including the chef coming out to talk to us which was greatly appreciated. Would throughly recommend this for all.

This is our fourth annual visit to The Hopping Hare to meet friends for our wedding anniversary lunch. Neither us or our friends are local. However, it is worth the drive from Milton Keynes and Chesterfield. The food is excellent, really tasty and beautifully presented. The customer service is also second to none. There is a good choice of food...

We gathered for a family birthday. All of us had a great meal. The choice of food on the menu was reasonably wide. There was a nice atmosphere inside and staff were very pleasant. It was easy to park in the restaurant's car park. I'd definitely go again.

Lovely pub, great food and excellent service. Regularly pop in for a drink, the best pub in Duston. I have recommended the hotel to several international work colleagues and they all love it there. Definitely recommend for the business traveler to stay in as well as locals for drinks and food.

Really enjoyed the lunch we had yesterday. Firstly the decor is superb. And depending on where you sit there's a pleasant view out of the windows My main course was a hamburger with pulled pork and tasty garnishes and chunky chips. Will definitely eat there again.

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.
