Game Season 2017

From August 2017 it’s game on at The Jugged Hare!

Game season 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.

From ‘The Glorious Twelfth’ we have been getting creative with our game, sourced from Ben Weatherall of Yorkshire Game Company as well as many other small, select gamekeepers and riflemen up and down the country. Our daily-changing specials board often featuring less common species such black grouse, moorhen, golden plover, even squirrel, as well as wild boar and deer shot by Tom, Ed and their senior chefs, and brought back from their annual hunting trip in Europe – all ensuring that you will be able to taste the very best of the 2017 shooting season
