My sister and I very much enjoyed our pre-concert Sunday lunch.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service second to none. Although the restaurant was busy, we had no problem hearing each other and we were served promptly. I can thoroughly recommend. We very much hope to come back soon to try some of the other dishes on the menu.
We went to the Jugged Hare for a Sunday lunch with friends as it's a bit of a legend for Sunday roast. The food was indeed great but sadly the service needs improvement. There were delays in taking orders - even though there were several members of staff around, delays in bringing drinks but no updates on how long we would have to wait, wrong items came, items were missing and we had to point it out etc. It's a shame since the food is really good and I like the Jugged Hare but Sunday felt really disorganised.
It was the best sunday lunch I have had in a long time!
Overall it was okay, but nothing as special as anticipated.
We were attending Barbican Hall the staff were very helpful and pleasant and the food was superb.
Excellent food and atmosphere, I'll come back and recommend.
The grouse was spot on. The wine very nice and the service excellent - really friendly.
Lovely meal great service and meat selection, pre show at the Barbican right opposite side of road 😋👍
The Jugged Hare is an excellent option. The only drawback is that noise levels are exceedingly high forcing one to shout until half the tables are empty!
Amazing food and we all need to eat more game
Food was exceptional.
I had not had a Sunday roast in ages and this hit the spot.
Big portions too which is always a good thing.
I would definitely go again.
A good selection of game (if only I had not gone on a Sunday). Must go again to have a game bird. Service wasn't great but not dreadful. Friendly but slow and the price indicates it should be better. Beef kidneys were a small portion but very well cooked.
Good was spot on and the service attentive, well recommended!
My biggest gripe was that the food was warm at best (not hot). Similarly both the plates and serving bowls were cold. No excuse for this in my opinion. Staff were pleasant enough but a bit directionless.
I will give it a second chance though, as I love the concept of a restaurant specialising in seasonal game.
To be fair, when I raised the issues with the manager he did take the desserts off the bill - a nice gesture.
The food was good and tasty however the portions were on the small side and were expensive for what we got. I would recommend increasing portion size if they want to charge these prices and also taking grilled leeks off the menu as no one likes a large piece of undercooked leek on their plate! Leeks should be soft and sweet not hard and crunchy.
Love this place, highly recommended. Particular thanks to Rob for his excellent service and remembering us from last year when we for my husbands 30th birthday- it was so good then that we went back for a joint birthday this year! Excellent service, food was amazing, and even made our dessert birthday friendly. Will be back, and will probably order same dishes they were so good.
Very noisy, which you expect when busy, but acoustics just make it worse. Service was haphazard with us having to wave to get attention. and sadly the food was average for the price paid.
Wasn't awful, but wouldn't go back
I love this place but on this occasion the food was less than amazing. I always leave telling people it’s the best ever, but not on this occasion.
Very good food and good portion sizes
Excellent on all fronts. Loved the standard and seasonal offerings. Great atmosphere. Good service.
Food was excellent.
Forgot starter but took a bottle of wine of the bill.
Excellent service, exquisite food, decent prices, great value for money.
Very good food, especially if you like game and meat. Not for vegetarians really.
Enjoyed lunch very generous portion. Good sevice. Very busy for a Sunday.
Very enjoyable. Good atmosphere of old London. Very convenient for anyone with things to do in the City. I come from Brussels which has some of the best and moderate priced restos in Europe so you can trust me as a guide.
Good food, good wine, good ambiance, one of my favourites when in London
The grouse i was served was raw, not pink. I challenge the chef there to take a grouse and remove the breasts fry them in shallot butter back bacon thyme and red wine and make them gorgeous and edible. Even slice the breasts to make the meat more exposed to the cooking process. I will come and try it.
Lovely food and great service. Expensive, but worth it.
Been wanting to come here for quite some time and we were not disappointed! The waiting staff were attentive. The food was excellent. The tables did feel a little crowded together but that didn’t detract from the experience. It is a little on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. Would definitely come back again.
Decided to book for Sunday lunch when weather looked like was going to be poor.
Overall experience very good and on the whole,excellent food. The roast potatoes were not as crisp as I like and the veg a touch too crispy/underdone. Otherwise very good.
Service friendly, but often had to ask for things eg initial drink, to order etc - fast to respond though.
Would definitely go back.
Absolutely ideal for adventurous meat eaters! We loved it.
We took the kids along as a treat at the end of the summer holidays.
Horrible service then a forced 12% tip. Service deserved nothing. Waiter was incompetent as he messed up both our drink and food orders.
Food was either very good or poor. We had 2 of each.
I would not go back.
A good staple for casual and business lunches - consistently good food, fun and interesting setting, a v. decent 'gastropub'. Dining area is set away from the main bar area too which is a welcome arrangement. Only slight downside is that the dining area can get rather loud at peak times but hardly a deal-breaker. Good selection of wines too.
Good but not incredible... especially considering the price.
Possibly the best Sunday roast in London. I loved everything on the plate, in particular the gravy and bread sauce - wow! They give you so much food too, I’m always stuffed when I go there. The trifle dessert is delicious too.
NEVER BEEN BEFORE BUT WILL GO AGAIN. BUSY BAR AT FRONT BUT RESTAURANT AT BACK MUCH QUIETER FOOD EXCELLENT AND VERY GOOD SERVICE.
This was a return visit and each time, the knowledgeable staff have made an excellent place for lunch.
we were there for a sunday roast and we enjoyed it very much, we would recommend it anyway
Amazing service and incredible food! Will definitely be back
