The Hovingham Inn

Visiting The Hovingham Inn

The bar is open on daily Tuesdays through Sundays and will be closed all day on Mondays. Food is available daily Wednesdays through to Sunday lunch (see our current opening hours here). The kitchen will be closed on Sunday evenings for now. We will be looking to offer food service on Tuesdays in due course.

To avoid disappointment table reservations are required where possible and are essential on Friday and Saturday evenings and for Sunday lunch. Walk in customers are, of course, very welcome, but we cannot guarantee you a table or waiting time.


To make a table reservation please call us directly on (01653) 628428or email us on Parties of five or more guests will require a £10 per person deposit, which is refundable up until 48 hours before your booking. It will, of course, be deducted from your bill on the day.

Dietary Requirements

Please inform us of any dietary requirements or food allergies at the time of booking. We are happy to adapt dishes wherever possible., but vegetarian, vegan and lactose-free diets require advance notice.

Children and Dogs

Children are welcome in both the bar and dining room. We do not offer a children’s menu but will happily adapt dishes where possible.

Dogs are welcome in the bar area. Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the pub.


We are building three en-suite bedrooms at the pub as part of the next phase of the renovation. In the meantime please see the following list for nearby accommodation.
