Private Hire

Available for private hire; whether a wedding, party or corporate event we can tailor a service specific to your needs.  The Hoppy Mare is fully staffed and licensed and is available all year round. We offer a complete service including the provision of biodegradable glassware. We also have the capability to accept cash and card payments.  We are based in Taunton, Somerset, and work across the South West, but are happy to travel further depending on your requirements and budget.


We want to help make your special day perfect by adding the wow factor with our centre piece horse box or indoor 'Barrel Bar'. We can also use on site facilities if your venue has them. Prior to the day we will arrange a meeting to discuss your theme and drink requirements. We have the facility to serve draught ales, lager and ciders as well as a range of spirits, wines and bubbly to satisfy all your guests desires. 

We offer a number of set packages or we are happy provide a bespoke service just for you. We also offer our 'Full drinks package' where we can supply all the beverages for your day starting with a Prosecco reception, moving on to a full 'at table' waitress service and following that, our lovingly restored horse box mobile pub or indoor 'Barrel Bar' can keep your guests topped up into the night.
