Dining and Private Events

The Remarkable Hare has 145m² of space at the rear of the premises for events and for hire.  This includes our separate private dining room.

Room Hire

We can provide hire packages designed to meet your personal requirements. We can put together a package for that big birthday bash, family celebration or for those special anniversaries.

Our packages can include a hot and cold buffet or banquet style food.

To discuss your party requirements, our availability or for a quote please email or call us:

Day conferences, exhibitions, corporate or training events

If you are organising a meeting, day conference, corporate or training event, this is the ideal spot for up to 30 delegates.


There is public parking to the rear and we are on a main bus route with a stop outside. The railway station is but a three minute walk away.

Our rooms can be configured in a variety of ways, affording groups who wish to meet for the whole day the opportunity to work in the larger of our two rooms whilst enjoying morning coffee, luncheon and afternoon tea in the dining room which can also be used as a breakout space if necessary.

Every event is different and all groups have different needs.  So, simply contact us and tell us what your requirements are in order for us to give you a quote. Better still, make an appointment and pop along to see us in person.

Private Dining

Our beautiful Dining Room is ideal for that very special intimate family occasion such as small wedding breakfasts, christening lunches and teas, post-funeral gatherings, special birthdays and anniversaries.


Please note: we are not equipped to undertake 18th and 21st birthday parties.

For a big  Sunday lunch on that special occasion (our table can seat up to 20!) in our private hire dining room, call in, phone or email to talk to us about your requirements.

You can book your room hire by clicking on the relvent BOOK NOW below or come and talk to us about your requirements in order that we may offer you a quote. We can quote for light teas to full family meals.

Secret Tea Parties

Why not surprise a loved one with a secret tea party!  Again, this is ideal for birthdays and special anniversaries.


All you need to do is to pre-book with us and encourage your family to keep the secret!  Shhhhh! Have a lovely day out in Matlock then come to the Hare for an “Essentially English”, tea which will be already laid out for your family and friends in our dining room, on beautiful vintage china.


Again, we can quote for different menu levels, just give us a call or pop in and chat with us about what you would like to do.  (You can even sneak down earlier and personalise the room and your table(s) if you wish!)
