The King & Co

For a cosy pub, The King & Co sure has a lot of draughts…

…specifically, a rotating selection of 18 kegs and 6 casks on tap, ranging from craft beers by Portobello Brewing and Brixton’s London Beer Lab, to classic ciders and German wheat beer.

Run by a small team, The King & Co is a Clapham’s local, with exposed brick walls, cosy fireplaces, and a jumble of mismatched, second-hand tables and chairs. Besides the beers, there’s a fairly priced wine list spanning vineyards from England to New Zealand, and a lively events programme of masterclasses, tastings, live music, DJs and weekly quiz nights.

Those aren’t the only reasons why punters come across the city to visit, though.

With a finger firmly on the pulse of the pop up scene, The King & Co is home to a roster of kitchen residencies each year, inviting street food traders, pop ups and proto-restaurants to take over the pans for a few months. In the past, they’ve hosted itinerant heavyweights like Boca Chica, Eastern Bloc, Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, Donostia Social Club, Cucina Rustica and The Cheese Truck – often before they really hit the big time.

Currently, you’ll find Oh My Dog in the kitchens, serving up outrageous hot dogs lavished with ketchup & mustard; juicy burgers; loaded fries and other American diner-style small plates that change on the regs.

They’re winging it.


NOTE: The King & Co is open every afternoon till late (open from noon Fri-Sun). The pop up kitchen operates Wednesday-Sunday. You can find out more, and book a table, HERE.
