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
The food is reliably good, especially the game, when available, and the wine is reasonably priced. Very convenient if you are going to an event at The Barbican.
Over all a bit disappointed. I would like to go back during game season and give it another go. Wine list was excellent. Food was so so.
Always amazing service and food. A must go to
Interesting restaurant, as the name alludes probably not one for vegetarians (although there are a couple of veggie dishes)
Great Sunday lunch with excellent friendly service
2nd time here. Lovely atmosphere and service. Food yummy, and wine very drinkable. Can't think of any improvements frankly. Just a nice, warm restaurant with nice people and good food & drink. Would come here more often if it was a little cheaper. P.S. Super convenient for the Barbican.
Very good meal as always though a bit pricey. I would like to see a set menu if possible to make it a regular haunt instead of an occasional treat.
They were showing the football in there so we enjoyed watched England win over Sweden - bigger screen next time please!
Lovely menu and service from friendly wait staff. A nice little ice cream for the birthday boy!
Good menu and varied british dishes. Food well prepared. Service attentive. Thought somebody on a table next to us was periodically watching videos on his phone with tyhe volume turned up - Would be good for staff to stop this if they see it - spoils the atmosphere for others.
Excellent for supper after a concert in the Barbican, especially as most other restaurants are closed. Welcoming atmosphere and good food.
Went for a Sunday roast with mum, all the food was pre-cooked beforehand and badly reminiscent of school dinners. Staff were very pleasant though difficult to get their attention for service. When complained about food quality they immediately offered to remove from the bill so can't fault them for that, but likely won't return.
I enjoyed my meal, but could have enjoyed it further with a wider choice of sides or sauces. I had the rotisserie half chicken. I was annoyed that the gravy and the bread sauce didn't really add anything to the chicken. I think it's because English food is always typically bland I had to order lots of mustard to compensate.
Table near Bar was very noisy - couldn’t hear each other speak -had to ask for a table further from Bar. Staff were helpful and moved us to one which was somewhat better. A glass partition between Bar and Restaurant would be a great improvement.
Good food but smallish portions. Staff were not particularly friendly nor helpful. Jugged Hare dish was great. Other items small.
Great food. Trendy takes on traditional English food. Great drinks and wine choices
Excellent food and service. We fully intend to return soon to try the other dishes - rarely do we find an eatery where we are spoikt for choice :)
Nice environment and great food
The food at The Jugged Hare was very good.
My pre-dinner glass of wine was off; the waitress noticed that I did not finish it. The manager then came and offered to replace it. We'd already ordered a bottle of a different wine to have with the meal, so I said there's no need for a replacement glass of the initial wine. The manager insisted on giving us a glass each of very sweet port to have after the meal. While that is a nice gesture, I would've preferred he just remove the one glass of undrinkable wine from our bill.
Regardless, I will return here for wild game fare.
