Tucked away at the edge of the city, The Jugged Hare offers award winning food and wine in a beautiful and relaxed pub setting.

We focus on using the finest, seasonal British ingredients highlighting game, foraging and wild food. Provenance and sustainability are at the heart of our offering, and we work with some of Britain’s best suppliers to bring you a daily changing menu.

Our food is all served alongside the finest wines from around the world, local beers and crafted cocktails. Pop in for a pint at the bar, indulge in a three course feast and don’t miss our famous Sunday Roasts.

London's Best Game Menus

We champion the best is seasonal game all year round, specialising in rare game varieties. From our eponymous dish of jugged hare (a stew made from wild hare and cooked in a stone pot) to our venison scotch egg, our chefs are constantly evolving our menus to suit the seasons. Our a la carte menu is available seven days a week for leisurely lunches and great British suppers.

London's Best SUNDAY ROAST

Every Sunday we serve up London’s best roast. Cosy up in one of our red leather nooks – from where you can admire the eclectic taxidermy and whimsical illustrations of game that line the walls – and feast on one of the four delicious Sunday roasts: Longhorn beef slathered with horseradish cream; roast pork belly drizzled with apple sauce; lamb shoulder with a fresh mint sauce; and a tender baby chicken served with pigs in blankets, sage stuffing, bread sauce, carrots, parsnips, duck fat roast potatoes and a giant Yorkshire pudding.

It’s as satisfying as a Christmas dinner and, crucially, available all year round.

The Best Roasts in London

Our famous roasts were listed as one of the best roast in London. Here is what Hello Magazine had to say:

“Stepping into The Jugged Hare was rather like stumbling into a bustling country pub laden with locals and a warm atmosphere. The smell of herby roast potatoes and rich gravy is enough to tempt you inside as you walk underneath the Barbican passage to Chiswell Street.“


We are a stone’s throw away from the iconic Barbican Centre. Enjoy a delicious seasonal supper before setting off to the theatre.

  • "Such a gem of a place, the food is fantastic and seasonal which brings something new every time we go there. The Sunday roast beef was melt in the mouth, and veggies cooked just enough to retain flavour and a bit of a bite. Staff were welcoming, courteous and very attentive, we were lucky to find a table even without a booking (note to self, book on a Sunday!)."
