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.

Restaurant Menu

The Leaping Hare Vineyard Restaurant


Wyken Cafe boasts the same quality of food and service as our restaurant and serves breakfasts and lunches daily. Offering a slightly lighter option, it can provide the perfect accompaniment to a walk around our gardens.

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.
