Yeah not bad, just a glorified kfc if you ask me. But then, I’m old. I think youngsters are happy with this sort of place. The cauliflower starter was excellent though.

Had a fantastic bottomless brunch with a friend on Saturday. The food was full of flavour and the drinks flowed in a great atmosphere. We also took advantage of the social set-up of this restaurant with it's shared benches and made friends with the patrons next to us - is a fantastic and unique spot in Hoxton!

Really disappointing experience. Chicken was flabby & inedible. Cocktails were good. Service was inattentive. Wouldn't bother trying to go here on a Friday night again. Shame as used to be consistently good.

Amazing food and would highly recommend. The prosecco punch was delicious and the ambiance was lovely. The only let down was that there was a slight hiccup with everyone orders so our table and the 3 tables next to us didn't get our food for a good 30/40 mins. Having said this out waiter apologised repeatedly and gave us extra drinks and time for our bottomless brunch so no hard feelings at all. Will definitely be back soon for another bottomless brunch!

Overall a good experience, however we waited for food for around 30-40 minutes and people who had been seated after us got their food before. The glasses and table were also dirty, which was a bit off putting, but the food was delicious.

It was so busy with customers and the venue is quite small, and they were kinda of understaff with 4 of them I think? But food was awe awe awesome!!! Loved it heaps! Other customers were very loud and rowdy just made it hard for us to hear each other but location was nice

L❤️ve this lil place. I always order a double portion of the chicken as it’s so good. I never eat all but I make sure I take my leftovers with me. Trust me it’s such a treat the next day, you will not be sorry. I recommend the Soy Chicken it’s so good. Chicken and waffles are great too. Good service, staff are friendly and fantabulous music. It’s a treat in East London which I actually love since the area has become so gentrified. Enjoy guys.

It was a little cold in the back bar room. We got there at 12:30pm and were the only table for a bit which felt a bit echoey but then within 30 mins it was packed, buzzy and had a great vibe. Probs best for a group of mates doing a boozy brunch :-)

Felt like my best friend from childhood who lives and breathes hip hop and finger licking chicken, opened up this treasurous tavern of clucking heaven. Located in between council flats, we felt the warm, unpretentious, fun-loving concept from afar. As we entered at 5pm, it felt like home game won and supporters were ‘no limit’ celebrating, seems they’re cluckkilling it here with their brunch offering. We thought we would regret our timing but didn’t give a damn for the following reasons: The playlist, no lazy mainstream old school Hiphop that franchises would select. tick. Slick service even as they were tagging on breaks. which meant we were touched on by a wave of refreshed, not in it for tips, team members. Tickity tick.
We ordered 3 sets of 4 wings in 3 different sauces, truffle aioli it was raining so slippery shoes meant slippery floors meant waddling penguin walk, a cold draft coming from god knows where and we didn’t try the bar. yet.

So first of all just want to comment on the ambience set by the music. Such a vibe and loved the playlists selection. This restaurant went above and beyond in helping us celebrate our night. Made arrangements for flowers to be delivered and couldn't thank the manger enough. Also turns out she was a fellow islander so big up yaself.

I'm normally a harsh critic however I couldn't fault the chicken. Broke the vegan diet for one day and it was fully worth it. Will return again on a cheat day!!!!

Loved it! The only thing that is making this not 5-stars is the service! there were only 10 other people in the restaurant and we were trying to get the attention of the waiter for 10 minutes as he stood with his back to us talking to the chef as we were waiting to order. Delicious KFC. Recommend the food for sure!

Really delicious and like that they used healthier oil to fry the chicken. Thought it was a little cheeky to charge £1 per sauce, without telling us ahead of time.

Great food- very flavoursome. However, our cauliflower was half cold, half warm which was a shame. Service was not great at all- rude and not bothered. Value for money was OK. I would definitely give a try because it’s quirky, cool and tasty but not sure if I’d go back

I went to Clutch Chicken to catch up with some pals. We alI wanted to go somewhere new and we were all pleasantly surprised and impressed by the chilled vibe, trendy crowd, the music and decor. With so many “chicken shops” opening up its easy to be jaded by the hype but clutch chicken is very much on point, with succulent chicken, and really tasty sauces, and huge portions of fries. I have given 4* as I think there are very small areas to improve like seasoning the fries and providing a side plate with the bowls of chicken but these are very, very minor gripes. overall we all loved it. We had a lot of fun and we’ll definitely be back. Recommended.

Clutch is literally my favourite restaurant in the world- I've been many times and the
food is consistently excellent (personal favourite is the Parmesan love me tenders). It's in a bit of a random area but that's definitely part of its charm. The staff are always amazing and good fun, I just can't praise it highly enough!

Set in an unlikely part of Hoxton, Clutch is a gem! Ask for a table in the back room. We were sat beside the most lovely xmas tree - very festive! The food was delicious and unpretentious and also very affordable - highly recommended! My only reservation was the chips which werent all that great!
