Went for the first time yesterday to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, had the tasting menu ( I had the impressively matched wine flight) and we were delighted with the quality and presentation of the food. We were made to feel very welcome and loved the attention to detail in the quirky little rooms and tiny (12 tables) dining room. This... More

Went on Sunday and decided to have the bream for entree and traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. The fish was perfectly cooked. The beef was the best I have had in ages, melt in your mouth, The whole lunch was first class. The staff were great, keep up the good work you deserve all the praise you are getting.

Wow! This out of the way restaurant is brilliant from the amuse bouche to coffee and petit fours everything was delicious. The service couldn't be faulted. The tasting menu idea is genius and the staff were only too happy to accommodate our food allergies/intolerances. This place is destined for stardom. I advise you to get there before you need to...

The chef is a genius. The freshness of all his ingredients make his dishes wonderful. The portion are not large so don't go if you... More

Just back from the Hare Inn, after having an exceptional lunch with friends. A very talented chef, each dish had so many flavours, and the service was excellent.

We've eaten at the Hare a good few times now and I never cease to be staggered by the quality of the food that the small team at the Hare are able to produce. We're lucky enough to have eaten at a number of very high profile, glabally renowned, michelin star restaurants and, in my humble opinion, this place tops... More

We have been to The Hare Inn at Scawton a few times now and it is my favourite restaurant in North Yorkshire, the food is outstanding, quality, presentation faultless. The owner Liz is the most attentive hostess and nothing is too much trouble, it is well worth going, can't wait to go back it is fantastic.
