TimeOut

TimeOut - 4/5

Thursday, March 22, 2012 - The bar is an idealised version of an old drinking haunt; pints of real ale (four on draught) are downed at tables fashioned from antique whisky barrels. Bar snacks are a cut-above: chips and gravy; pork crackling with apple sauce; venison scotch egg with Cumberland sauce. There's a bar menu in the same vein...Game is a feature; a perfectly cooked wood pigeon (from the rotisserie) was helped to star status by accompanying lentils with dripping. Also good was a super-size wild boar and venison sausage, which we paired with a sprightly beetroot and fennel slaw.

The Jugged Hare hosted us (a group of 25 from the Netherlands) in their excellent Josephine Room. Making the reservation with Briony was a good experience, she was very helpful and flexible to meet my wishes for the evening.

With regards to the evening: The atmosphere was great, the room - with large square table - exceptional, the food was good and the service (Duncan and Folicoe) was of the highest standard.

Just a great experience!

I recently held a private corporate dinner in the Josephine Room. The feedback from the guests was very good and the service both that they received during the dinner and that I received pre-event was excellent.

Had a fantastic lunch at this great venue, it is hard to combine a great pub where you can enjoy a proper pint with a restaurant that serves fantastic food, but the Jugged Hare does it brilliantly. Beers, wine food and service were absolutely first class. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal or even to pop in for a pint.

Josephine private room is perfect or a business lunch. Great food, attentive staff and attention to details (candles, flowers and music) will make us come back there very soon. Great value for money.

We had our Christmas party here on Tuesday and had a fantastic afternoon. The ambience, food and wonderful, helpful team who served us made our event a great success!

Thank you to Nicole who co-ordinated our reservation and made everything run very smoothly!

For the second time this year (2013) we booked the Josephine Room for a dinner party of 20 and on both occasions the food and service has been excellent. I would highly recommend this venue.

We just had our Christmas party at the Jugged Hare and it was amazing. We hired the private dining room which had been set up beautifully, with flowers, and candles. We had 3 dedicated members of staff who were so attentive and patient with us all, as after a few drinks a group of mostly males can get rather loud. The service was impecable. And the food was perfect. No one had a bad word to say about the evening, we will definitely be going back for other company events. Worth every penny.

We once again had our office Christmas lunch in the Josephine Room of the Jugged Hare for our team of 35 people. It is a wonderful venue with a great Christmas feel and that is why this was our second Christmas lunch here and we have already booked for next year. Food and wine all great with a wonderful service ~ nothing too much trouble.

Thanks again for a wonderful event.
