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.

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 2014 shooting season


Game Master Classes

Learn to pluck, truss, butcher and dress different game birds at our Game Masterclasses. Available upon request from October to February, classes are for 8-16 people and cost £150 for  three-hour class with a three-course game feast, matching wines and a sloe gin cocktail on arrival.


Get three times as much game for your bite with our new ‘game board’!

With so many great game dishes on the menu, we know it can be a struggle to decide which one to choose. Luckily, the struggle is over!
We’ve created the ultimate showstopper in game feasting with the introduction of our ‘Game Board’!
Create your bespoke ‘game board’ to share by choosing three game birds on offer on the menu (or from the daily specials) which may typically include wild duck, red legged partridge, red grouse, teal and pheasant.
Then sit back and let the feasting begin!
