My husband and I, along with two friends, enjoyed a beautiful lunch at the Leaping Hare yesterday. The food was lovely with the exception of my friends main course which was a little under par. The staff were very apologetic and offered her a pudding at no cost, all in all they handled her complaint very well. The service is... More

Fabulous yet simple food with everything cooked to perfection. Great service, waitress was polite, friendly and could do more for us. Wine was fantastic, we brought several bottles home. Well worth a little trip out there to discover some fantastic food! Has become a firm favourite for family birthdays etc.

We booked to celebrate a family birthday, sadly not greeted promptly then had to wait for quite a while to have drinks order taken once seated at a table. Through the meal had to ask 3 times for a jug of water. One starter was requested for no dressing but came with! Really disliked the paper table cloth........ Not sophisticated... More

I love the Wyken experience. I visit the farmer's market and the country store often but it's a while since I had lunch there. I visited just before Christmas with a friend and we had a lovely time. The dining room is part of a beautiful barn and we had a cosy table by the wood burner. We had the... More

We visit the Leaping Hare quite regularly at all times of the year and for varying reasons eating in both the more casual part and the restaurant. We have started a bit of a tradition to go there on Christmas Eve and have a family lunch as well. Hence the latest review. We have never been disappointed with the service,... More

Second visit in three months, the first visit of 2014 motivating us to book a Christmas lunch with the same friends that we visited with the first time around, so impressed were we with the quality of the food, portions and service. We were a party of eight, four kids and four adults, starter was the Ham Hock followed by... More

We visit this beautiful restaurant on a regular basis and have reviewed it before but our last visit was so good it warrants another review. We visited on the Friday before Christmas and took advantage of the innovative menu. I had sweet & sour figs, beetroot, hazelnuts, celeriac & croutons with a blood orange dressing [suitable for vegetarians] followed by... More

Having been here for Farmers' Market breakfasts on a number of occasions, we looked forward with eager anticipation to dining in the restaurant as a birthday celebration. We were far from disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed virtually everything about our visit. The welcome was warm and very friendly with an excellent brigade front of house who kept up their professional but... More

We ate in the a la carte restaurant though there is an informal cafe available as well within the converted barn. For a high ceilinged building, the feel is still cosy with a wood burning stove in the middle and interesting artwork. The food was delicious - perfectly cooked fish and steak. Pheasant tagine that was delicious. The service was... More
