THE MOONSHINE CAFE
WOOD FIRED ORGANIC SOURDOUGH PIZZA
The Outside Moonshine Café is open Friday – Sunday, serving our Rueben’s Sandwiches and Famous Wyken Pizzas 11:30am until 3pm.
The Bull Pen is open 10am until 3pm serving extra drinks and snacks Friday – Sunday.
What started as a project for lock down is now permanent. We have installed a wood fired pizza oven and renovated an old farm workshop to create the Moonshine Café; an al fresco area with heaters to keep you warm.
Our 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.

The key to a good pizza is in its base, and the key to a good base is an uncompromising approach to dough. Wyken pizzas are made from a sourdough base, in the classic Neapolitan manner, but with a twist. Organic and coarse milled flour, with a dose of rye, catalysed by a starter derived from Wyken grape skins, provides a distinctly Suffolk take on the Italian style.
What is Neapolitan Pizza?
At Wyken we make Neapolitan pizza infused with the terroir of Suffolk. The style of Neapolitan pizza means a sourdough base, with a light, airy and chewy crust. The pizza is cooked in a wood fired oven, at a temperature of around 450 degrees, for only a minute. The result is a charred crust with centre that is slightly wet, oozing unctuous and overflowing flavours. Alongside classics like a margherita, we use seasonal ingredients from our own farm, like asparagus, pheasant and venison.
