‘it doesn’t put a foot wrong’ Jay Rayner – The Observer. Click HERE to read the full review.

Housed in a converted 400 year old barn, the Leaping Hare restaurant has been in the Good Food Guide for 26 consecutive years. We serve a blend of modern and traditional European dishes, made with thoughtfully sourced ingredients.

Alas, dogs are welcome during breakfast & after lunch. For requests during lunch, this is at our discretion. You may like to bring them to sit on our terrace (where we serve light snacks & drinks).

Wyken Vineyard

Our Wines

Planted in 1988 on a south facing slope that was the site of a Roman vineyard, our vines thrive in a terroir of sandy loam over chalk. Past awards include ‘East Anglian Wine Of The Year’ and ‘English Wine Of The Year’ for our Wyken Bacchus.

Quality Food

Sourced Locally

We try to source all of our ingredients locally. As much as possible comes from within a five mile radius: lamb and beef from neighbouring farms; venison, pheasant and partridge from the Wyken estate. We grow many of our vegtables and herbs in our kitchen garden. We also source from Langham Walled Garden and from our Farmer’s Market held here at Wyken each Saturday from 9am to 1pm.
