Jugged Hare Review

Fullers, the brewers, are a peculiar lot
Some might even say they’re losing the plot
It seems like they’re attempting the strangest of pranks
By purchasing loads of old empty banks!?

Their motives aren’t kinky but intriguingly clever
Transforming the bank is their primary endeavour
They further the dominance of their old corporation
By renovating the interior with pub-like ornamentation

A few minutes jaunt from the banks of the Thames
You’ll find one of Fuller’s most unassuming gems
Caught on the Vauxhall-Victoria main thoroughfare
This particular bank is now called The Jugged Hare

The name sounds like a recipe from old Mrs Beeton
And ironically enough the food is top eatin’
The appearance is that of a seafaring convoy
With ale, low beams and the occasional “Land Ahoy!”

A curious maze of sly nooks and crannies
It’s a great place to casually lose irksome Grannies
It’s popular with civil servants (in keeping with the region)
And maybe the occasional very lost Norwegian

A roaring fire is displayed on TV, that’s the heating
And when the ground floor’s full there’s mezzanine seating
The music is contemporary with Coldplay and Oasis
And the beer list is truly on a need-to-know basis

The sole reason for going is the Hare’s ultimate prize
They’re crusty, they’re crumbly, they’re the Holy Grail of PIES
The main thing with your pie is the state of the pastry
And these guys know how to make it deliciously tasty

They’re homemade and filling is plentiful, of course
The best one, by far, is the Lamb and Shrewsbury Sauce
Created by God, Mohammed, Buddha or Brian
This’d be your meal of choice if you lay dying

Winner of the Fullers’ Master Cellarmen of the Year
The management really know their wines and their beer
The biscuity flavour of the Discovery blonde ale
Is the perfect accompaniment to the pies on sale

At the end of the evening once you’ve cleared all your tabs
At the door there’s a phone that displays emergency cabs
The staff are very amiable and will bid you “Adieu!”
As you stumble out the door to create pie&mash spew

For those who enjoy clean air with their pie
It’ll be better after the smoking ban in July
Ask any patron if they’d come back again
They’d reply “Yes Almighty!” and give it 7 out of 10
