Great place

We are lucky to have this lovely restaurant/cafe on our door step, The food is delicious as is their very own wine from their vineyard. Friendly, relaxed service, I highly recommend visiting.

Delicious food and friendly service. Wyken Moonshine was a lovely aperitif and the home made truffles equally fab to finish!

Back to The Leaping Hare for a Bank Holiday lunch, hearty greeting on arrival and even recognised from previous visit last August. Beautifully dressed table in a magical barn setting and we soon settled down to peruse the inviting menu. I could have happily chosen any of the starters or mains but settled for the smoked pigeon breast, braised leg... More

We had a lovely lunch at the Leaping Hare; food was delicious and service quick and attentive. The attached shop has lots of lovely things to look at and buy and they have an old fashioned farmers' market on at the weekend (sadly we went midweek so didn't go to this). Our party was aged between 9 months and 84... More

Situated a few miles outside of Bury St Edmunds in one direction and Diss in the other, the Leaping Hare is a great place to meet for lunch knowing that there will not be a traffic warden keeping check on your car. The menu is varied enough to hold interest and the food tastes great too. Especially to be recommended... More

Went for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and enjoyed a very happy time. The place itself is delightful, with the restaurant at one end and the café at the other. Service excellent, and enjoyed a superb starter. The lamb was nice, but not with wow factor, and the pudds excellent. Really enjoyed it, and a great place for such... More

I booked for lunch on the recommendation of a friend and took my Mum and partner for her birthday. The setting is stunning with lovely light crisp tables in a beautiful restore barn. The service was wonderful, attentive but not overly so. We sat down at 12pm and were finished at about 2pm. The food was exceptional. Every mouthful prompted... More

Was passing by on route to Southwold. Due to Trip Advisor reviews decided to stop and give this place a try. We were very happy we did, there was a Farmer's Market (Saturday) selling great local produce, we ate in the café, it was good food, not too badly priced for the quality and setting, very nice. We had the... More

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!
