Rabbit is one of the new wave of British restaurants in London, the younger sibling to The Shed in Notting Hill is a celebration of wild and local food. Run by the three Gladwin brothers, one is found in the kitchen, the second as front of house and the final one is on the farm growing the ingredients.
Everything at Rabbit is about sharing plates from smoked grouse charcuterie and venison stogies to razor clam ceviche and rabbit ravioli the menu celebrates really wonderful British ingredients. The cooking is excellent and the dishes well constructed, although sometimes there is not enough on the plate – it’s a testament to will power to stop you going back for more and more.
The on-trend interior is as rustic as London gets with tables hewn as slices from fallen trees and wood as far as the eye can see. Strong cocktails and a well thought out wine list will see diners roll out of the restaurant and into the crowd of well-heeled revellers pounding the pavements of the Kings Road.
