About The Jugged Hare
Head chef, Stephen Englefield, takes charge of the open kitchen, adding an element of theatre to the dining room, which is complete with a state-of-the-art eight-spit rotisserie and charcoal grill, expect to seasonal game such as haunch of venison, mallard and wild boar. Hearty feast menus, available for parties and families, and a selection of traditional Sunday roasts, from whole roasted suckling pig to leg of spring lamb, will make The Jugged Hare an ideal weekend destination too. Wild fish and shellfish handpicked at Brixham also feature strongly on the menu. The hottest seats are located at the pass - pull up a stool to see Stephen and his brigade in action.
For those looking for a traditional pub environment, head to the bar with its display of exclusively sourced antique British taxidermy and original oak whisky barrel high tables and chairs.

The Jugged Hare Ratings and Reviews
Second visit and really great food. Had the snipe and the juggled hare which were birth delicious. My wife had the tunworth and a great steak. Only problem was that as a lover of game, I could have eaten several main courses (must revisit soon). Thanks Jugged Hare
As always great food and service
great to go in game season and didn’t disappoint
the haggis scotch egg, black pudding croquettes and crispy pigs ears as a shared starter are fantastic!
Great wine list, friendly efficient service, buzzy amibiance and excellent choice of food, what more would you want?
Great place either for a pint or two in the lively front bar or a hearty feast of game in the slightly quieter restaurant. Or both. The signature dish of Jugged Hare served with mashed potato and greens was out of this world and by all accounts the vegetarian option was fantastic too. Efficient and friendly service and with an 8.30 booking we were not hustled out at the end of the night. We'll be back at the next possible opportunity.
We dined early and it was quiet to start with (in contrast with the busy pub, but it soon filled up and the atmosphere was great,without being too noisy. Attentive service and excellent food. Starting with the "options for the table", especially the black pudding, is strongly recommended.
Enjoyed a pre-theatre dinner, 2 courses £25, 3 courses £29. Not huge choice but lovely menu. Excellent wine list. Service was very good, friendly and attentive but not over bearing. The pub had a great atmosphere, bar and restaurant both packed, varied age range as well. The main menu is quite extensive, lots of game, imaginatively cooked. Definitely book.
Went here based on a reccomendation for my husbands birthday and it certainly didn't disappoint! The tables are a little close together for comfortable dining but it was a great atmosphere overall. Had the scotch eggs to start, a must try! For mains I had the Jugged hare which was really fantastic, though I'd have preferred it with chips to the mash. My husband had the burger which came with chips and they were a cross between chunky chips and roast potatoes - lush!
The Jugged Hare is ideally placed for Barbican pre-concert dining. We made it clear we needed to finish well before 7pm and the excellent service ensured we had plenty of time. We entered through a loud, crowded bar, but the restaurant was blissfully quiet (we were very early in the evening) and without musak.
Not a cheap place, but we weren't looking for that. Interesting dishes and fine wine by the glass. We'll be back.
Our last full day in London and it was Sunday so we wanted to have a afternoon roast as most dining ends early. Lovely corner pub with a great bar. Dining was in a separate area. Great choices of meats with veggies & potatoes. Large selections of wines & Beers.
I had been looking forward to eating at The Jugged Hare for ages and it did not disappoint. A very nice pint of Pale Ale in the pub to start and then an early, pre-theatre dinner. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful. I confess I was surprised that the custard with the crumble was cold (intentional), but there was an immediate offer of get some warm custard made - nothing was too much trouble. The food was tremendous and I will be back again soon to try some other choices. great atmosphere, even at 1730 as the bar was packed, even though the restaurant was calm and peaceful at that early hour. Make sure you are hungry when you get there!
Excellent, seasonal menu focusing on very well cooked meat dishes. The game in particular is notable and, on our visit, was cooked perfectly. Not one for vegetarians but if you like traditional British cooking (delivered in a contemporary way) this is an excellent restaurant. The wine list is also extremely good. Highly recommended.
The restaurant had a nice buzz to it as we arrived and were welcomed through the restaurant which featured some hanging game animals in the window to give you a sense of what was to come. The menu had some great options and our large group all found something we liked. Amongst the dishes chosen were the ham hock sharing plate which came out in a large cauldron and was absolutely delicious, the other diners who ordered individual dishes were forced to look on in envy. That said they loved their dishes too and one person commented that the burger was the best they had ever had in their life!
The biggest shame of the night was that we were all so full we couldn't fit room for a dessert.
English food at it's gastro-pub best. I'll definitely be back.
The Jugged Hare was fabulous, from the moment we entered the building, we were a little early for the booking so ordered a bloody mary each and then went to the table, I had Wild Rabbit and Crayfish Terrine to start the 45day aged longhorn beef and trimmings and a delicious lemon tart with gooseberries for dessert, we were rushed at all, we were treated so well by all the staff, they were attentive but not overly, and very friendly, we will definitely be coming back to here with friends or together very soon.
