Excellent set lunch of mussels, duck with red cabbage and mash followed by sorbets all washed down with the amazing Moonshine wine grown at the vineyard. We are regular visitors and love both the restaurant and the cafe and the fabulous shop! I would eat here every week if I could!

Wonderful, smooth coffee, very rich with flavor, also had a scone and clotted cream. Yummy! I hope to make it back for dinner before I go back to the states! there is... More

the food is great but not once during our meal were we asked if everything was alright . We have eaten in a lot of lovely restaurants but this one feels like you are on a conveyer belt. Better lighting from the car park to the restaurant would help.

I visited the leaping hare with my mother and 7 week old son. They were very accomadating and the food was beyond expectations. The scollops are the best scollops had to date and melt in your mouth. I would definatly recommend here to everyone. Cant wait to try it again.

Lovely Saturday breakfast, eggs florentine with crispy bacon on the side. Tasty bacon, well cooked spinach but the beautifully cooked poached egg tasted of vinegar. I know why chefs use it but when over used you can't taste the egg. A great shame. Perhaps I should have complained at the time but then I'm English.... On the other hand the... More

The food here really stands out, lots of local produce featuring on a varied menu. The service was excellent with polite staff. Upper 2nd quartile pricing, but worth of that special meal.

My wife and I enjoyed a very good lunch at the leaping hare which was enhanced by the choice of many locally sourced items such as the pheasant and venison. I had a 'Jacobs Ladder' which turned out to be beef on a rib slow cooked so it melted in the mouth, served with superb mash and red cabbage -... More
