Housed in a cosy candlelit basement, this venue from the Soho House Group (next door to Pizza East) is a one-trick pony celebrating the delights of roast chicken. Inside it's lined with mirrored wooden cabinets, and the vintage look is enhanced by diner-style tables, red chairs and a long wooden counter. Chalked up on the wall, the basic menu offers free-range Norfolk chickens served by the quarter, half or whole. Marinated, steamed, then finished on the rotisserie grill, the meat is deliciously juicy with perfectly crisp skin. Generously portioned sides are delivered in blue-rimmed enamel dishes, and you can get your chilli kicks from the house ‘hot' sauce. Finally, sweet treats such as deep-filled apple pie draw proceedings to a satisfied conclusion. In short, this is highly effective, hip comfort food for the iPad generation. Takeaways, too.
