Squaremeal 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.

    Emma Rose Tully :: Review: Clutch | Daydreamer

    A chicken restaurant where there’s more bird-related puns on the menu than you can shake your tail feathers at. Family-run Clutch, opened it’s doors to the (empty) street of Ravenscroft Road back in November last year. Close to East London’s Hoxton, but hidden away from the passer-by, I suspect most Clutch diners have heard about it before walking through the doors of their coop...

    Chicken Chicken, the new craze is chicken. Once again, The Life of Shayan team took their time coming to this party. Yet, thankfully, Clutch Chicken in Hoxton has kept the party going and welcomed me with open arms.

    This along with Chick &n& Sours and Chicken Shop were the originators of the London Chicken Scene and now we have Mother Clucker, Ma&Plucker and many, many more. Why not, the Chicken mark up is so good and so many wonderful things can be done to this meat. especially when fried.

    Clutch has been around for a minute and I am glad I had this impromptu visit on a pub crawl. A table was booked...
