Description: The supper club and pop-up revolution is gathering speed in the UK. For Those of you who have not heard about the concept, th and idea is really quite simple: rather than go to a chain restaurant or pub tired, passionate cooks across the country are opening the doors to Their homes and inviting people to try Their inventive and exciting cuisine. The Leaping Hare is located near Ganton, with stunning views over the Wolds. When the weather Permits, we will eat al fresco in the courtyard arches, with drinks served on the sloping lawn overlooking the valley. When its colder, we have large farmhouse kitchen, dining room, and reception rooms with wood burners and open fires to keep things toasty! We endeavor to create exciting and inventive dishes, with ingredients sourced locally and used in season. Our main focus will be contemporary Anglo-French cuisine, with a twist, anche Although we plan to offer themed evenings offering food from all over the world. We have some of the finest ingredients to choose from right here in North Yorkshire, and we think it's the perfect time to open our doors for a new and exciting dining experience. Our inaugural evening will be held on Saturday 8th February 2014 at 7.00Pm We look forward to welcoming you! Selma, Jay Roxy and the whole LH team!

We wanted to say a few words about our wonderful dining experience at the Leaping Hare pop up restaurant at Warren House, Ganton-on-the-Wolds, Scarborough. What an absolute hidden gem of a place, I hardly want to share my views because, well..... I want it to stay "hidden"! (Purely out of selfish reasons!). Instead, I feel I can't stay at such a lovely place with such fabulous food and not sing its praises. Selma, Chris and Jay made our evening stay such a wonderful one. The food itself was a delight from start to finish, with such delightful offerings in the form of Amuse Bouche shot glasses of mushroom consommé to the main course of pork on petit pois and the finale for me had to be the dessert of Café Parfait. Other courses in between were also beautiful but these were the stand-out dishes for me. There is so much to say I can't possibly rave about it enough. My partner and I were delighted with the setting, the courses and of course the hospitality of the hosts. I do hope the Leaping Hare is here to stay as it truly is a little gem and one worth visiting without hesitation! Thank you :-)

Something completely different from the usual restaurant dining experience. Set in the most beautiful surroundings and with a lovely warm welcome from the hosts which could not be faulted for the whole evening.

Amazing tastes, each part of each dish had exquisite flavours that worked so well together. The menu had been put together with much thought and hard work. Have never tasted or seen food like this before.

Just cannot wait to visit again.

Thank you ever so much for a wonderful time.

The menu was exciting with clever flavour combinations and the dinner did not disappoint. Each course was lovely, with the Bouillabaise a surprise favourite of mine, given that I am not a huge fish eater!

Jay, Selma and their team looked after 20 guests with ease, from the welcome cocktail, through to coffee with beautiful petit fours.

Rave reviews from all. We look forward to visiting again.

We attended as a team of 20 and had a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

We were welcomed by a log fire and a champagne cocktail and then we were presented with 3 gorgeous and innovative canapés.

Sat in the dining room we enjoyed 7 exquisite courses, each of which looked like individual masterpieces!

We finished with coffees and home made truffles; a very nice touch!

Overall, a great night out and would highly recommend the Leaping Hare to all!
