The guys who run Rabbit spend a lot of time shooting their own meat and game, just like we spend a lot of time on Call of Duty shooting at our 14-year-old cousin Ethan. The kinda fine dining food here has had an awful lot of thought put into it, but the results can be hit and miss, and the unusual combinations (confit pheasant and lovage, anyone?) aren’t always as tasty as you imagine. Get the lamb fingers – they sound like a regretful night between a wooly quadruped and fish fingers, but as a dish, it’s very tasty. That said, it’s commendable that the restaurant has tried something different instead of pandering to the usual fare on the King’s Road.
