IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Coqbull

2020 has been a pretty rubbish year for everyone. But if there’s one industry that’s been hit the hardest, it’s the hospitality industry.

Rather than a review, it’s time to support the incredible bars and restaurants that make London one of the foodie capital of the word.

First up: Coqbull in Soho

Coqbull hasn’t been in London for long. In fact, it opened in November – pretty brave to open in the middle of the pandemic. Kudos to management!

Coqbull front entrance on Denman Street, Soho, London.

It’s so easy to reach, literally a minutes walk away from the dazzling lights of Piccadilly Circus and the buzz of Soho and Chinatown. It’s much bigger too, with 2 (or was it 3?) floors plus a rooftop that going to be mega in the summer.

I loved the decor. A blend of modern, rustic, and homely vibes. The ground floor reminded me a bit of high-end gastropub which is a very good thing.

Long established in Ireland, Coqbull is the master when it comes to slow-roasted Rotisserie chicken. Obviously, ya boi had to try it.

I was never going to be disappointed. The half-chicken with herb stuffing and roast chicken was next level juicy, so meaty, that gravy was next-level flavourful and the herb stuffing was perfect.

If you’re peckish (see what I did there?) for something else, their burger offerings sounds just as mouth-watering and tempting.

Staff were wonderful. A great chat, down-to-earth, genuinely enjoying what they do. The feel-good vibes really rubbed of on me, and I loved it. Without them, I’d never have known about the rooftop. The moment I walked in, I felt welcome, even though I was the only diner on an early Saturday lunch time. It was nice touch for them to introduce themselves to me individually.

Visit Coqbull when you can. Come with your mates for a relaxed and casual lunch or dinner, amazing food, and a laugh. You’ll find me on the rooftop one day with a signature cocktail in hand very soon.
