The Jugged Hare

Barbican, London

If you find yourself hungry and at a loose-end around the Barbican in London, the Jugged Hare could be the cure you need.

Seasonal and local is this gastropub’s speciality, for instance, during game season, you can order from a generous menu of game.

However, if game is not your thing, then fear not, there’s plenty on offer for even the pickiest of eaters.

From the grill, you’ll find some fantastic Cumbrian steaks accompanied with double fried duck egg, roast bone marrow or onion and garlic rings.

Try the pie of the day, or Welsh Dragon sausages with a burnt butter mash and onion gravy. Steamed Shetland mussels with chorizo with hand-cut chips come from Billingsgate Market, as does Peterhead cod and grilled whole lobster.

For beer lovers, four British cask ales are always ready and waiting to be poured. Try the pub’s very own Jugged Hare pale ale, which is brewed in South London’s Battersea.
