 If you want to have a drink to start off the evening The Jugged Hare, which lies at the corner of Chiswell and Silk Street in the heart of London is the ideal place. It was formerly known as the King’s Head Pub and was a part of Whitbread brewery. Its name is derived from a classic 18th century recipe by Hannah Glasse, who was out of the foremost cooking experts and the country’s first domestic goddess. There is emphasis on seasonal British dishes that are made using traditional cooking styles and the finest boutique wines. There is a handsome pub, with a very spacious dining room, an open theatre-style kitchen and a magnificent vaulted private room. The dining room was formerly the barrelling section of the brewery which features ceramic tiles on the ceiling and walls and sturdy oak floorboards. Guests have the facility to enter the ‘walk-in’ wine room where they can choose their favourite wines with a view through a window offers them a peek into the kitchen’s ‘cold room’, which exhibits the ageing process of game and the meat hanging there.

The seating arrangements feature a vibrant red leather banquette with comfortable stools at ‘the pass’, which permit diners to see Head Chef Stephen Englefield and his team in action, as they go about food preparations on a charcoal grill and a state-of-the art eight-spit rotisserie. Walk into the pub and you will see a unique back bar display of exclusive British antique taxidermy. Other attractive features are the original brass decor restored from the brewery, stylish anaglypta wallpapered ceilings and classic whisky barrel high tables.

There is nothing more beautiful than to catch a sight of the river Thames at night, with its illuminated bridges.  You could take a peaceful walk along its riverbanks, from the west by Chelsea Bridge or from the east by Tower Bridge with the most amazing views.
