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.

I used to drink in this pub at the end of the 80s... think it was The King's Head. It was good but unremarkable in those days. Surprisingly, for a makeover, character has been added in spades now it is The Jugged Hare.

This is the kind of cooking that 18th Century English gentry probably enjoyed. It's meat heavy but done in a subtle way to bring out the flavours of each cut. I had trout for starters and partridge for main - but would have happily just closed my eyes and picked at random, such was the quality of the menu. Me and my dad had a pint of bitter called Lord Marples as an aperitif. A no-nonsense brew reminiscent of post match jugs of beer at our village rugby club back in 'the day'.

The Barbican is just down the road so nice spot for a post cinema/art exhibition blow-out - or sustenance before a gig.

Great to find such a complete gem in the old City.

This is a fantastic place with a mix of the traditional pub at the front and lovely dining experience at the back. The food is simply wonderful! We both went with the fish offering and considering there is a lot of game / meat on the menu we were not disappointed. The fish chowder was amazing and I had to physically stop myself from eating it too quickly in order to prolong the tasting experience. My wife had the seabass which she thought was quite possibly the best she had ever eaten. The wine by the glass is a little pricey but it was delicious, so you could argue that you get what you pay for! All round 10 out of 10...

Thank you for the fantastic lunch - it was very enjoyable. As for my own dish the pie special of the day was very flavoursome and came piping hot. I should also not forget to mention the great service (genuine and friendly) will visit again.

Had a pre-theatre dinner and wished we could have stayed longer! The service was great - friendly, attentive staff. The food was fantastic - not for vegans though! Amazing crab starter, enough for 2, beautifully presented. I had the hake in mussels and lentils, my husband had the jugged hare. Both very tasty, again beautifully presented and generous portions. We’ll be back for another visit but this time we’ll take our time and enjoy more of the menu!

We've now visited twice and both times have been excellent. This time I chose the jugged hare dish (they also serve a Jugged Hare bitter which is a fine brew) and I have to say it was absolutely delicious, and ample!The place itself is really interesting, adorned with stuffed game animals. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

They have amazing game dishes which you cannot find easily at anywhere else. We had black pudding croquet with guinness sauce followed by Jugged Hare and Partridge. All excellent! Also the service was quick when we told them we had to go to Barbican theatre in one hour. Highly recommended.

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

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.
