The Jugged Hare


The Jugged Hare is a fantastic British gastro pub for lunch, dinner or drinks in London. Situated next to the Barbican Centre on the corner of Chiswell Street and Silk Street in the City of London, the pub forms part of the famous old Grade II-listed Whitbread Brewery. The venue, with majestic taxidermy lining the walls at each turn, also features an open kitchen where customers can watch the team prepare and serve their food from a state-of-the-art eight-spit rotisserie as well as a charcoal grill.

There is also a dining room and a 'walk-in' wine room where guests can handpick their favourite bottle of red whilst a window through to the kitchen's 'cold room' showcases the ageing process of meat or hanging game. The Jugged Hare is a celebration of good food and wine, and the choice of four British cask ales - including their very own Jugged Hare pale ale - means there's plenty for the beer lovers too.

An absolute must for lovers of quality game and wine, The Jugged Hare is good for after-work drinks and would be the ideal place to host a refined corporate or private event in the City.
