Revisited following the exchange between Margaret G and the Manager Francis G on the 'live chick'. As animal lovers we set off with our dogs with the aim of visiting the farmers' market and ended up having a wonderful breakfast (outside) at the Leaping Hare. Wonderful coffee accompanied by scrambled eggs - lovely and creamy with lovely granary bread and... More

I was clearly having coffee at the same time as Margaret G to witness the chick in the restaurant some Sundays ago. Contrary, however, to Margaret G's comments I thought how wonderfully refreshing it was to witness such goings on in what is an increasingly dull world. I hope that when I next return to The Leaping Hare, which will... More

Again a wonderful Sunday lunch to celebrate family birthdays. Great food and service and really enjoyed their Bacchus wine. Slight hiccup on bill sorted very quickly and without fuss, so great customer care

Brilliant response from general manager. Can't wait to visit now ;) Had no idea of your existence but it sounds like heaven. Will write informative review when I return! So sorry to hear of the loss of your chickens. Devastating

We have been numerous times and the atmosphere is always very relaxed with a French Chateaux feeling with the sun streaming through the large fig covered windows. Our waitress Jess explained the new menu and recommended her favorites from the new monthly menu we started with the Lobster jelly and fish , my guest had the chicken terrine both superb,... More

We first discovered the Leaping Hare about 7 years ago and wished we had known it earlier. It is a delightful place to go in the Suffolk countryside. The whole ambience of barn, shop, farm and gardens is sublime. We eat there on a regular basis and the food is always imaginative, delicious and beautifully presented. The added bonus is... More

Been to Wyken a few times both the cafe at lunchtime & the restaurant for dinner, both are really lovely! Totally worth the drive out! Would love to see a few seasonal specials in the cafe side of things, would visit more often!

I just love Wyken Hall .... 15 mins drive from our home and a lovely place to pop out to in winter when you want to get out the house. The shop always has something new and the restaurant is lovely. Sometimes a little over-priced for what you get, but the quality is always good. I always bring visitors here... More

Went for lunch in the "cafe" part of the restaurant. Food was excellent. Took some time for our order to be taken. Food also took a little time to arrive, perhaps because it appeared to be prepared and cooked for each order. It appears to be a place where people go for a linger and a natter. Not necessarily a...

This morning we had the most delicious eggs florentine and pancakes. The setting is gorgeous, sophisticated and the staff lovely. I really want to say it is a brilliant place to visit. But there was one significant low clouding our brunch, a live chicken/hen. At a table near us, we were sitting inside, a woman was cradling a bird. She... More
