The Jugged Hare is a fantastic British gastro pub for a 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 aging 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.

A word from the chef:
This is British cuisine at its zenith! House cured and smoked meats including jugged hare, the menu bursts with meat, offal, game, wild fish and shellfish, and there's a rotisserie providing one of London's best Sunday roasts.

The Jugged Hare City of London - London Restaurant Review

I'll admit, I was a tad bit overexcited as I walked to the City of London. After all, every colleague of mine told me I was a 'lucky b*****d' when they found out I was reviewing The Jugged Hare. Known for its seasonal menu and fresh game...

<p>After trying many other of the ETM group, I wanted to try their newest venue. I wasn't disappointed! The taxidermy matches the game on the menu (the venison haunch was beautiful), and the wines our waiter suggested were perfect. Well worth a visit and I will be going back time and time again.</p>

<p>Went here for lunch. Really like the decor (although not overly keen on taxidermy!) but it is definitely a cool gastro pub. The food was great, you could tell that the food is of utmost importance here. Service was a tad slow, especially for lunch when you have to get back to the office but i think it was only open for a week when i went so maybe teething problems. Def a top gastro effort! I'll be coming back (prob for an after work glass of wine!!)</p>

<p>Yeh this place was good. Its got a good look and the front bar is actually more like a speakeasy rather than a pub and the back room is spacious and well decorated. The food was tasty and a good place for an affordable dinner or nice pale ale after work! You have to like taxidermy though as there are quite a lot of stuffed animals on the walls!!</p>

<p>Welcome addition to the city and a pretty good gastro pub at that. I am loving the recent trend of more British emphasis, especially with the lagers, ales and wines. This is a pretty classy affair, welcoming atmosphere and a great spot for food, drink and chat after work.</p>
