ETM to open its 10th pub in March

London pub operator ETM Group is to open its 10th site near the Barbican in March.

Formerly the King's Head and located on the corner of Chiswell Street and Silk Street, the Jugged Hare will be a British gastropub with an open kitchen and a fine wine and beer focus.

The group's ninth site, the Angel & Crown in Covent Garden, opened in October last year.

The Jugged Hare takes its name from an 18th century English recipe (which will feature on the pub's menu throughout the game season) and will include a 40-cover public bar, a 60-cover dining room and a lower level private room named ‘the Wine Room' for up to 40 seated and 60 standing. This private room can also be split into two rooms.

Head chef Richard O'Connell will take charge of the open kitchen.

The opening of The Jugged Hare will also mark the launch of ETM's own bottled pale ale of the same name, brewed in conjunction with Sambrook's Brewery.

In addition, there will be four British cask ales on draught, two of which will always be from a London brewer.

A by-the-glass wine dispenser and preservation system will also allow fine varieties such as Vosne Romanée, 1er Cru La Montagne, Bruno Clavelier 1999 and Château Cos d'Estournel, 2eme Classé, Saint Estephe 1990.
