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.

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 love Bramble and Hare and the sister restaurant Black Cat. When we go to Boulder, we like to go to one of them. Great cocktails and excellent food!

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.

The quality of the ingredients was clear and the flavors were incredible! The service was top notch. Our server, Mike, spent a lot of time with us and the bartender even came over with a special drink for our anniversary. We will be back!

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.

WOW! We had just amazing cocktails and great service. Bartender's choice was 100% the way to go (though the stock drinks are excellent, too). Salmon was perfect, honey-garlic carrots were amazing. Wish we could afford to go more often.

The service at Bramble and Hare is exceptional and well worth a visit to this restaurant. The cocktails are a highlight and the wine list not so much. The food was carefully prepared and presented and the curry vegetable and salmon are standouts. The turnip side could have done without. They were not prepared well.

Thought the food was very pricey for what we had. The least expensive bottle of red was $52. Two a la carte entrees and one dessert was $156. Food was good though!

This is our favorite date night restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual relative to its next door sibling the Black Cat. The food is just as delicious and we enjoy the laid back vibe. The staff is super gracious and friendly, not to mention knowledgeable. The food is out of this world. The two of us have done well by splitting the 3 course meal and getting two deserts. We plan to go back at least a few times a year to follow the seasonal menu

Went there for Mother’s Day. The food was great and the menu changes frequently as it is a Farm to Table restaurant. Chef was able to prepare something for my daughter as they don’t have a specific kid’s menu. She loved it. Great ambiance. Would recommend for foodies and families.

So relaxed and warm. Service was amazing! Food was delicious. Calm and paced 3 course meal. Passionfruit mousse layered cake was outstanding. Drinks were creative and scrumptious. Waiter answered our 97 questions with pleasure. Amazing graduation dinner with my out of town familia.

Lovely. Waiter was just right, if slightly late to greet us when there were only 2 tables full.

Food was delicious but not knock your socks off. I had been about two years ago and remembered it was fabulous. Salmon tartare was delicious. Salad with lardons and nuts, delicious. Salmon with pepitas entree perfectly cooked and delicious. Panna cotta, meh. Strawberry mousse cake good. Not sure why on earth I am not raving. Definitely a first world problem. Perhaps it was what I ordered?; perhaps it was that nothing on the 3 course menu sounded that new?

Arrived on time for our reservation. We were seated at our table. Waited waited and waited. Servers were all by the bar talking with each other. No one came to our table until my husband finally went up to the bar and asked them to come to our table and get our drink order.
Overall very inattentive wait staff.
Salmon was very good. The ribs were fatty. The pork was good but the vegetables were terrible.
No one ever asked how our food was.
Overall, very disappointing experience. We brought our friends, who had never been there before, and I’m quite sure they will never go back.

Excellent service, we dined quite late (around 9.30pm) so some of the options we wanted had actually sold out. Our server went above and beyond to offer a solution and managed to offer some meat options from their neighboring restaurant. The food was excellent and the restaurant itself has great ambiance. Highly recommend it
