What they say:
The Jugged Hare is a new London Gastro pub launching in the City from the ETM Group who have brought us hugely popular gasto pubs including The Cadogan Arms, The Gun and recently in Covent Garden, The Angel and Crown. On the former site of The King's Head opposite the Barbican Centre, The Jugged Hare is named after an 18th century recipe that will be represent on the food menu throughout the game season. Diners and drinkers can expect an open kitchen where head chef Richard O'Connell will be cooking up tasty British dishes, a dining room and a flexible private hire space called The Wine Room. Gastro pub lovers can look forward to a fresh and forward thinking food menu including seasonal game, meat and wild fish and shellfish will be roasted and grilled on a daily basis. Those looking for a hangover cure or a cute and cosy London pub for a sunday roast will also be well taken care of.
The Jugged Hare, located on Chiswell Street, and connected to the old Whitbread brewery, will be grand in style, restoring many of the features of the Grade II listed building, including exposed ceramic tiles, oak timber floorboards and an original brass ironmongery. The bar will be well stocked as one would expect and will debut The Jugged Hare's, self-named, new pale ale that continues the growing craft beer trend in London. You will also discover delicious wines as well as Bloody Mary's to wash down your sunday roast.
What we say:
The Jugged Hare is an exciting new London pub that is bringing some true gastro qualities to the heart of the City. Following their successful formula of the true British gastro pub, the ETM Group is set to bring after work drinkers in the city an alternative from their regular wine bars and city boozers. We are very excited to try their own pale ale that has been created with the assistance of the experts at Sambrook's Brewery. The Jugged Hare promises to combine excellence in both the eating and drinking experience and will provide a homely, warm and welcoming place to dine and drink in the Moorgate and Barbican area. We look forward to visiting The Jugged Hare.
