The Jugged Hare is a slick operation with a machismo hum and a thing for wild birds (not to mention taxidermy) – should your visit coincide with game season, you’re in for a treat. Vegetarians and vegans beware: the menu majors in meat, namely British classics and plenty of flesh from the grill or rotisserie, including a ‘Billingsgate’ selection of fish dishes, fresh from the famous London fish market.

What to eat? Expect the likes of terrine, braised pig’s jowl, retired dairy cattle bavette with Mrs Brown’s black pudding and fried duck egg. Hefty stuff. There’s also pie of the day and the eponymous Jugged Hare with creamed mash, cabbage and bacon.

Pipsqueak tip  Don’t be put off by the City suits at lunchtime: this is a child-friendly spot, and a good bet if you’re in the Moorgate area (not exactly replete with fine places to eat). The children’s menu is served from midday–7pm and includes cheese on toast, chicken goujons with fresh vegetables and mini sausages with mash and gravy.
