Visiting The Hovingham Inn

As a result of the Coronavirus situation we regret to announce that we are closed until further notice. For home deliveries of wine and food, please see Hovingham Inn Your Home.

Visiting The Hovingham Inn

The bar is open daily Wednesdays through Sundays and and food is available daily Wednesdays through to Sunday lunch (see our current opening hours here).

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. If you are coming especially to eat, we really recommend calling ahead to ensure we have space for you.


To make a table reservation please call us directly on +44(0)1653628428 or 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.
