SquareMeal Review of Rabbit

Bronze Award

Having found fame with The Shed in Palace Gardens Terrace, the three brothers behind Rabbit deserve real plaudits for launching such a unique, characterful and youthful offshoot. From the liberal use of rough-cut timber to the odd pair of antlers, the style is emphatically country-meets-city, while the kitchen is set up to get the best from ample produce arriving from the family’s Sussex farm.

Start with a ‘mouthful’ of confit rabbit and chervil on crispbread, then move on to sharing plates of seasonal ingredients imbued with flashes of cheffy creativity: big dollops of broad bean hummus studded with shards of brittle lemon-and-ale crisp; seared ox liver with rainbow chard and a punchy peppercorn sauce; a pork chop with fennel salsa, nasturtium leaves and crackling dust.

For dessert, we recommend the chunks of honeycomb on mascarpone with tarragon sugar. To drink, try a seasonal cocktail or a vintage from the family’s own Sussex vineyard.

Superb, surprising, worth crossing London for!
Great tasty sharing morsels to start with, each small mouthful a delight. Mains - order 2 each and make sure you try everyone elses! We only ordered one desert - the apple - just brilliant! Fresh ingredients, imaginative cooking, sublime flavours and simple but stylish presentation. Our only gripe would be the music was so loud but before the end of our meal we clearly werent the only ones asking them to turn it down, as they turned it off, phew, it should stay that way! It was a bit too dark, a pity as we couldnt appreciate the look or colours of the food enough. We were given a 2 hour slot then politely presented with the bill. Service was good, friendly (our waitress suggested her favourites, apple desert being one). Rabbit is rustic, casual, and a must for all foodies!
