Square Meal Review of Clutch ?

Right between buzzing Columbia Road and happening wine bar Sager & Wilde in Hackney, Clutch has hopped onto the dude food trend with a clear conscience, serving ethically sourced, free-range fried chicken to a widely varied demographic. Set in a freshly painted former pub that’s attached to a well-maintained ex-council estate, the slick interior design cues hint at a dining experience that’s aiming far higher than your usual bucket of KFC, with brass-topped tables and monochrome zigzag floors demanding guests’ attention. The menu offers half or whole buckets of chicken, ‘Love Me Tender’ goujons and ‘Put a Wing On It’ chicken wings – with each option offered in two different marinades. Stand-outs are the fresh-flavoured lemon and parmesan goujons served with a rich truffle aioli, and the signature sweet soy and garlic chicken bucket – the rich, sticky, tangy marinade is incredibly moreish. Inventive dips and sauces such as whipped feta add a fun twist, while side options include an earthy beetroot salad. There’s a short cocktail menu to boot – spice fans should try the chilli chicklet, a refreshing mix of Tequila, lemon juice and red chilli that cuts through the richness of the food brilliantly.

Introducing the guilt free fried chicken. The menu is very straight forward, there are three chicken dishes, a selection of ‘side pecks’ and sauces. We had a half bucket of the Happy Hens (fried leg, breast and thigh) in peppery buttermilk batter, sour and spicy chilli wings, twice fried fries, roasted corn with garlic and black pepper accompanied by two side sauces of Clutch’s chicken gravy and whipped feta as recommended by staff...

    MotleySpicer :: Review: Clutch London

    Clutch is one of the latest London locations to capitalise on the growing fried chicken food trend – and they do an outstanding job of it. The menu, naturally, is very chicken-centric from the rotisserie chicken brunch menu to the fried chicken dinner menu. It’s simple, straight forward, and damn delicious...
