SquareMeal Review of The Cock Tavern Kennington

Declaring herself ‘over’ Shoreditch, Farika Holden – one-time landlady of the cult E2 pub that is now Nelsons Head – has set up camp in Kennington. And very camp it is. Her new pub, Georgian in origin but occupying the former premises of Hawaiian-style tiki bar South London Pacific, resembles a film set of a sacrificial temple. Here a party-loving pansexual posse cavorts amid the totem poles to a mix of kinky beats, trash pop and loony tunes until as late as 3am. In the airy main bar, all quaint and quirky artworks nailed to the ceiling, well-priced Slings, Sours, Manhattans, Martinis, and Negronis go down a treat. Alternatives range from craft brews and lad lagers to classy French crus and Bolly among the bubbles. In the absence of a kitchen (for now), grub from any nearby exotic takeaway may be consumed at The Cock: somewhere for Kennington to crow about.
