SquareMeal Review of
The King & Co
Various pubs including The Grey Goose have briefly occupied this site. Hopefully, this stripped back indie local with its more-shabby-than-chic decor, recycled furniture and decked yard will make a go of it. The King & Co’s hand is a good one: its trump card, the sort of keg and cask ales that will delight Clapham's craft beer crew. London loveables include the best of Beavertown, Crate,The Kernel and Wandsworth’s Belleville while Caerphilly’s Celt Experience and York’s Hop Studio underline the nationwide scope of the micro-brewing revival. There’s plenty of imported exotica too - Japanese brewer Kiuchi’s Belgian-style white beer, Hitachino Nest, one typically interesting cask. The pub’s kitchen will be ceded to pop-up chefs which interchange change constantly throughout the year. Paprika-rubbed beef sirloin with Castille-style potatoes and piquillo pepper sauce, or quail, parsnip puree and broccoli in a sherry jus are not your average bar bites.
