Gastro Pub
Bramble & Hare, the original Farmhouse Kitchen and Pub, opened its doors in July 2012. Founded by Chef Eric Skokan and his wife, Jill, as the sister restaurant to their Black Cat Farm~Table~Bistro.

Bramble & Hare has a lively, warm atmosphere in its intimate dining room. It is located in the heart of Boulder, CO, just off the historic Pearl Street Mall.

Hand-crafted, seasonal cocktails featuring artisanal spirits and local ingredients show the talent of our professional mixologists who make our bar spring to life.

The variety of produce and meats grown on their 500 acre certified Organic farm allows Chef Skokan a limitless palette of flavors, colors, and textures from which to build his award-winning cuisine. The Black Cat/Bramble & Hare team also forages wild produce (like mushrooms, juniper and wild plums) that root the restaurants' cuisine in the flavors unique to the Front Range region.

The farm to table food is delicious. My partner and I ordered the 3-course meals for $38, which included an appetizer, entree, and dessert. Everything was prepared wonderfully and tasted delicious. I ordered the vodka drink with the beet syrup and OMG! It was so delicious! The ambiance is fun. Bramble and Hare is rather small so it did not get too loud or over crowded. The waitstaff was extremely friendly.

This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time for ever reason. Special call out to next level care to where food comes from, fantastic service, and custom cocktails from a bartender that is an artist. Love.

Unfortunately I can not recommend the Bramble and Hare. I find it interesting that a high noise level is considered "energetic" I find it annoying. I don't care about how the loud mouth at the next table job was that day. I'm not interesting with sharing with the half dozen strangers around me how my day went either but must because my table partner, 2 feet away, can't hear me. But on to the food; I ordered the Trout which turned out to be salmon sitting pale and lonely under some shavings of celery and rhubarb (actually the most flavorful thing on the plate), surrounded by tasteless if slightly bitter butternut bechamel, on top of a mound of farro whose flavor overpowered the poor salmon. My partner ordered the Brisket, which was fine, but the sauce added nothing and he thought the sweet potatoes were out of place. We opted for the "farm dinner"so also received an appetizer, the roasted beet plate needed several larger offers of chevre to make it more interesting, but the field green salad with slices of fresh fruit was bright, flavorful and the best part of the meal. The dessert selection included your typical chocolate cake offering, a coconut cream pie? (don't recall exact item) and another old stand by - apple pie in a jar. Nothing appealed to me but my partner ordered the apple pie in a jar and was, as I expected, so sweet it was enough to curl your toes and make your teeth hurt. After consuming just a salad and piece of salmon we decided a stop at Taco Bell was a good way to end the evening.

My veggie dish, with beans and garbanzos, as well as a starter potato dish were both seriously undercooked. The sauce was heavy. The potato leek soup was gummy.

Unfortunately, the only thing I found to be good here is the bar service. They do prepare wonderful custom cocktails. However, the food leaves a lot to be desired. I basically received a plate of overcooked slop. And it's overpriced for what it is. Also, cramped and needs to be reimagined. Seating was uncomfortable.

A wonderful dinner! Chris was great with his service, attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent. I went with 2 other people and we all got different things and tasted each other’s food- all yummy. It was crowded and a little bit loud but definitely comfortable. On the way put it was raining and the hostess lended is an umbrella to get to our car. Overall love Bramble and Hare.

The moment we walked into Bramble and Hare we were treated with care and excellent service. The food was exquisite. Each bite was a pure delight. The vegetables had the sun-kissed fresh picked flavor that only comes from the garden. The chef's loving touch showed in the beautiful presentation as well as the perfectly executed preparation. It was my partner's birthday and he felt royally treated. We will definitely return.

Date night - seated at our favorite table. What friendly service! Creative bartender concocted a mocktail from ingredients and flavors I liked. We enjoyed 4 entrees/appetizers and each was a delightful surprise. I told the server that the pulled pork entree had me thinking that Grandma was in the kitchen - SOOO good! We'll be back again and again.

We enjoyed the three course (so reasonably priced!) dinner and every single element was delicious from the cocktails to salads to the main dishes (pork and salmon were flavorful, cooked perfectly and had lovely veg components) to the spectacular desserts. YUM! Portions we're spot on. Can't wait to go back. I'd order the same things again, but suspect that everything on the menu will be wonderful and coordinated with the seasons.

Great local farm to table. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the carrots and turnips in the salmon dish were literally Rock solid, but everything else was super tasty.
Cocktails there are always great (around $11-12) per cocktail FYI.
