Harden's survey result
This quirky, faux-rustic venture in Chelsea was the second in the Gladwin family’s nowadays fast-growing farm-to-fork group. Its sustainable small-plates can be “very good”, but there are also a few gripes in reports, including service that can be so-so and a feeling that “tables are too close together”.
“Tasty sharing plates” – sourced from the family farm and vineyard in Sussex – earn general praise for this “charming” but “cramped” and oddly proportioned faux-rustic dining room in Chelsea. Rabbit was the second of the Gladwin brothers’ ‘farm-to-fork’ small plates London venues, following The Shed in Notting Hill and preceding Nutbourne in Battersea and Sussex in Soho. The fifth, The Fat Badger in Richmond, is due to open in late 2021.
“Truly delicious tapas” showcasing “great farm-sourced food”, with “some robust, well-judged flavours” win ongoing appreciation for the Gladwin brothers’ six-year-old King’s Road operation. There’s also a “cool vibe” to the “quirkily decorated room – loved it!”.

Rabbit Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Went for the small plates, which we had had before. BUT it was a Sunday, and, although we booked by phone, they didn't say it was a roast dinner only menu, finishing at 8pm. Just awful, awful - dry meat, terrible overcooked veg and no gravy to help things. Staff were quite helpful, but please don't go on a Sunday - you'd be far better going to a pub for a decent roast!"
