The Tame Hare

Haring along Regent Street the other day, I noticed that a new restaurant had taken over what was (the short-lived) Paleo.

The Tame Hare has quietly opened in Leamington and is already piquing interest with local foodies.

Open Tuesday-Saturday for lunch and dinner, chef director Johnny Mills is from Leamington and served two years as sous chef for The Cross in Kenilworth, as well as being Head Chef at The Ebrington Arms in Chipping Campden before opening his own restaurant on 1 April.

On offer in the pared backed dining room is a tasting menu for £50, set three course lunch for £20 and dishes for ‘Little Hares’ at £6 of modern British food.

Dishes include;

Oriental braised pig cheeks, celeriac ‘risotto’, wild nettle pesto
Pan fried bream fillet, confit fennel, gem lettuce, sauce vierge
Duck, pasty, cabbage, purple sprouting
Blood orange, rhubarb and lavender
Rice pudding, hay baked pineapple, BBQ mango.

I have no idea where the inspiration for the restaurant name came from – I will have to ask when I pop in.
