A bit more information ....

Restaurant
The vineyard restaurant, The Leaping Hare, is located in the 400-year-old barn. A Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide and now in its 15th year in The Good Food Guide, the restaurant serves meat and game. Where possible they try to source their ingredients from a five-mile radius, so the 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

Wyken Hall Gardens
Formal gardens crammed with topiary, herbs, roses, box, fruit trees — and meandering peacocks, guinea fowl and chickens — snuggle up to the Elizabethan manor house, with head-high yew hedges serving as windbreaks, essential in East Anglia, a region renowned for its ‘lazy winds’
Starred in the Good Gardens Guide and featured in Gardens Illustrated, The English Garden and Country Life, the garden at Wyken has evolved over thirty years
