THE LEAPING HARE VINEYARD RESTAURANT AND CAFE
Wyken Vineyard, Stanton, Bury St Edmunds, IP31 2DW. Telephone 01359 250287.
In the'Good Food Guides' for 16 consecutive years, and were named 'The Good Food Guides' readers restaurant of the year for the East of England in 2013. Carla and the staff feel that this award means more than any we've received because it comes from the most important people, our customers. Bib Gourmand in the Michelin.
The restaurant is open for lunch every day from 12am until 2.30pm and on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7pm last orders 9pm.
The café opens every day at 10.00am (9 a.m. on Saturdays) for breakfast or coffee and a bistro style menu is available in the café. In the afternoons we serve tea and coffee and light dishes and Wyken's famous cakes. During the months of January, February and March we close at 5pm Monday to Sunday.
Where possible we try to source our ingredients from a five-mile radius, so our beef and lamb are local (and when possible from the Wyken farm.) Wild game--venison, pheasant, partridge, rabbit and pigeon are from the estate and fruit, herbs and vegetables from the kitchen garden as well as from Phil of Langham Herbs who is in the Farmers's Market every Saturday.
