“Epitome of everything best about England”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Stunning gardens, roaming peacocks, newborn lambs, a maze, first class restaurant and cafe. Saturday farmers market and a delightful gift, clothes and book shop selling quality produce. Unusually this is all packaged in a relaxed, civilised and uncommercial way leaving you feel you have landed in a corner of Suffolk which neatly presents the best of everything English.
The day we visited we had the gardens to ourselves making us feel very privileged.

This is a very special place. I can't wait to return,

“Very English Establishment!!!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Wyken epitomises everything that is English. I have been here twice recently with friends. The shop is lovely full to the brim of lovely things for adults and children, it has a very posh feel to it, served by very well spoken ladies. Yes it's expensive but sometimes you just need to buy that thing that has a special feel to it.
Then there is the restaurant and cafe. Again this is not your average eatery, it's full of ladies who lunch, or gents with yellow trousers and tweed jackets. But a great place to be. On the last visit we had cycled out and did feel a tad underdressed even for the cafe, feeling we were being given the once over by some of the tweed brigade.
That said this place is faultless, the waitresses all smartly dressed are very efficient, service is excellent, matched with the quality of the food, again it is very overpriced, but if you know that before you go that's fine. We enjoyed our coffees and brunch, took our time catching up and at no time felt pressured to move on.
There is something special about Wyken, the whole surroundings are just perfect, great if it's a sunny day as you can sit outside. It has that "cut above the rest" tone to it, coupled with the very English accents n tweed makes for a great experience whatever you choose to do.

“Excellent every time”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

We have visited many times with different people both to the cafe and the restaurant Everyone we take also falls in love with the place, the food is marvellous as they are simple fresh ingredients with a creative twist and also very delicious! I could spend all day in the shop but it would need to be after I have won the lottery so I could spend all day too!

“Ladies lunch”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Came with five friends to celebrate my retirement. Beautiful restaurant, attentive but unobtrusive staff, wonderful food. Shop selling a good selection of quality goods, also plants for the garden. Can't wait to go back.
