About The Clerk & Well

SquareMeal Review

An imposing black-and-white frontage hung with flower baskets marks out this stalwart of the Clerkenwell pub scene – a favourite with local workers, shoppers and students from the nearby City University, who appreciate its attractive modern interiors, pool table and fair prices. The food comes courtesy of a ‘Thai kitchen’ that knocks out satay skewers, seared beef salad, red and green curries and pad thai as well as a smattering of pan-Asian standbys ranging from sesame prawn toasts, pork ribs and steamed edamame to Penang beef, aromatic crispy duck and miso-marinated salmon with roasted beetroot. There are also platters to share, while liquid refreshment comes courtesy of regulation beers, cocktails and wines. Upstairs is a sedate private function room done out in formal townhouse style with flimsy drapes, varnished furniture and white leather sofas.

Delicious Asian tapas including duck spring rolls, chicken gyozas, chicken satay, steamed edamame and a big bowl of duck fried rice in the middle! The food was just as nice as the last visit, but the service wasn't as good. Forgotten items from drinks order and I had made a note on the booking that this was for my friend's birthday lunch and asked if we could arrange a dessert, unfortunately my request was not acknowledged which I just think is a little bit of a shame on a £100 bill... some of our side plates were also cleared away whilst we were still picking at food which was surprising!

An excellent spot for a TGIF work lunch with your colleagues. It's pretty busy with crowds of guys coming in to play some pool and grab a few pints in their work hour, so if you want an intimate lunch then this is probably not your thing. The Clerk & Well is lively, full of atmosphere and quite fast paced in its service. On this occasion we shared a selection of starters that were authentically flavoured with Thai spices and were delivered on dark, rustic plates with cute little dipping pots. Special mention has to go to the chicken satay and the Thai fries with the spicy mayo, just delicious! They automatically add service to your bill, which would usually annoy me as I like to add a tip based on the service I have received, however, the food, drink and service meant that the applied tip was completely deserved. Look forward to coming back and eating from the main courses...
