ETM Group opens 10th venue

Published:  13 February, 2012

The ETM Group is to open its 10th venue The Jugged Hare, a British gastro pub with a fine wine and beer focus.

Formerly The King's Head and located on the corner of Chiswell Street and Silk Street, the building is a Grade II listed property and once part of the famous Chiswell Street Whitbread Brewery.

The 4,000 sq ft site will include a 40-cover public bar, a 60-cover dining room and a lower level private 'wine room' to host up to 40 seated and 60 standing.

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

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

There will be four British cask ales on draught, two of which will always be from a London based brewer and and over a hundred "accessible and keenly-priced" wines will be available by the bottle and carafe.

Head chef Richard O'Connell will take charge of the open kitchen which forms part of the main dining room.

Co-owner and founder, Tom Martin, said: "This is a project that we have been working on for a very long time and it will be a pleasure to showcase our genuine passion for British produce, particularly meat, game and wild fish and shellfish, alongside fine wines and real ales in an English pub setting."

The ETM Group was founded by brothers Ed and Tom Martin in 2002, its other central London venues include The Hat & Tun, The Botanist, The Well and the Cadogan Arms.
