about us

The Hungry Hare is nestled in the pretty village of Gilling West, at the head of Holmedale in North Yorkshire. The beautiful rolling countryside around us inspires us to search out the very best local produce to supply our village kitchen. 

In Summer 2018 we are looking forward to opening the doors to our own village store and deli in Gilling West. 


our team

Our experienced team is passionate about the food they serve and helping you to curate your perfect event. For us food and its provenance is always the focus and we relish seeing the enjoyment that it can bring.

We have many years of experience working on a range of events both large and small, and will help you to sit back, relax and savour every minute of your special event.


our food

Our food philosophy stems from inspiration gathered from the countryside that surrounds us. We work with the seasons letting nature inspire us to find delicious flavours while they are at their most nutritious.

We enjoy finding the best of local ingredients from our community of producers and artisans, exploring further afield when necessary to source items produced with provenance and passion. We think this translates to our final dishes, which demonstrate exceptional quality, flavour and nutrition.
