A message to our customers and friends


‘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 25 consecutive years, as well as being a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide for 21 years. We serve a blend of modern and traditional European dishes, made with thoughtfully sourced ingredients.

The Leaping Hare Vineyard Restaurant


See MENU & Order

While the cafe remains closed, we have borrowed a pizza wagon from our friends at Well Kneaded in London.  The vintage Citroen is kitted out with a clay wood burning oven and is firing some of the most delicious pizzas you will ever taste.  Organic sourdough bases are topped with ingredients sourced from the Wyken kitchen garden, the Wyken estate and the close local area. We serve a combination of comforting classics alongside more innovative recipes.

While we cannot open the doors of our barn yet, you are welcome to eat the pizza in the dappled shade of our apple orchard, so don’t forget your picnic rug.  We will be serving Wyken wine and cold Good Dog Ale.  Now is the time to reverse the lockdown blues and make the most of being able to see your friends again.

The wagon is stationed next to the Bull Pen and Farmer’s Market.  We will be serving:

Lunch: Wednesday to Sunday, from 12:00-3:00pm

Dinner: Thursday to Saturday, from 6:00-8:30pm.

Dinner is pre-orders only, and while we can accept walk ins for lunch, pre-ordering is advised as we’ve had very high demand and have sadly sold out of our precious dough occasionally.  Please call 01359 250287 or email pizza@wykenvineyards.co.uk to order.

Pizzas are new to Wyken, and we’ve got lots of questions about allergies, gluten and even how hot our oven gets.  You can see our Wyken Pizza FAQs here.

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 as locally as possible. 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 Phillip of Moyns Park Organics, and from our Farmer’s Market held here at Wyken each Saturday from 9am to 1pm.
