What a lovely place - we ate in the café part of the barn and the food was excellent. Service a little slow but well worth the wait. Very busy. Had lunch initially and then visited the garden (an absolute must!) before returning for afternoon tea. This was a little disappointing - the scones were stodgey and not very appetizing... More

The restaurant is a place to return to for something special. The a la carte menu changes every month according to what is in season and there are at least five choices for each of three courses. Every dish provides a contrast either in texture or taste. They are full of surprises. They serve a signature cocktail using their own... More

Visited for my husband's birthday and it was our first time. We received a warm welcome and the service from all staff was very good. Really nice atmosphere and although busy there was plenty of space between tables. The food was excellent and great that there was a lot of local produce. We will definitely be going back as it...

We have been regular visitors to The Leaping Hare for quite a few years. Inevitably there are ups and downs with changes of managers and chefs but on average their standard is high. Based on today's lunch experience they may be having a slight problem in the kitchen. The Eggs Benedict - a Leaping Hare signature dish and usually delicious... More

We have eaten many times at this excellent restaurant and it did not disappoint when we took friends to share with us a Valentines Dinner. Peaceful ambience, creative menu, good quality local produce and excellent service. Can be costly on the wallet as we all went shopping between courses as the fabulous gift/book shop is en route to the loos!!... More
