This little restaurant is very charming, wonderful ambiance, excellent value for money and in such a perfect rural setting. Not to mention the shop that can help while away many an hour.

As Shakespeare once wrote--ambition is a grievous fault--but here is a restaurant that is ambitious in its menus, its attention to food , its clarity in its delivery of the aforementioned by an incredible knowledgeable waitress. Where it falls down is that apart from a couple of members of the front house the others require a LOT of training to... More

The leaping is a very special place, it is a combination of wonderful food (I would describe it as modern British with a small but perfectly balanced menu, based on the seasons & local produce beautifully cooked. The home made focaccia bread served warm sets the scene. Last time we went I had mussels, which some the best I have... More

That says it all - a well thought out venue with a restaurant, cafe, shop and garden, seemingly 'in the middle of nowhere' but apparently not as it was full on a wet Wednesday. Very nice light lunch and the wine was pretty good too.

We had a anniversary dinner on Saturday evening as well as sunday breakfast. The restaurant has a great ambience with very professional, friendly staff. The food was delicious - I had seared mackeral with pickled sweet potato and mint yoghurt starter (star ingredient some sort of marinated lemon), local pork belly with ham hock croquette. Had to share desert as... More

The restaurant is set in a beautiful barn. Before going in for our meal we walked across the farm field to the wood through which we accessed the vineyards. Here we saw the ripening grapes on the vines that produce their award winning wines. Back at the barn we checked out the outside Saturday market stalls selling high quality produce.... More

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
