Our celebration of all things game kicks off with our eponymous 18th century dish, Jugged Hare. Hare returns to British menus from the 1st August each year following the six-month ban on hunting which allows the animals to breed. Cooked in a traditional tall jug, the slow-braised hare meat is finished off with a sauce of its own blood and is one of the finest examples of this under-used meat you will find in the capital.

The Jugged Hare and sister restaurants hold a National Pheasant Week in November each year which champions the underrated bird.
