UPDATED MENU: The Cock’s Head – Gastropub – London

The Cock's Head Gastropub
The Cock's Head Gastropub - Eclectic

The Cock’s Head gastropub is located in Shoreditch and Camden and is the dream child of artisan landlords Josh and Oli who have recently returned from the Sydney leg of their world for flavours tour for a soon to be commissioned Chanel 4 cooking series.

The Cock’s Head is a pant-shittingly awesome “Food Place” that Josh and Oli set up because they feel it’s totally the good thing to do in this time of austerity and all-in-it-togetherness.

It’s the talking place to eat. Predominantly about the “New Journalisms” in which there is currently a furore taking place among journalists and podcasters who believe that the subjects from whom they make their money are getting rather uppity in this time of new media.

The Cock’s food provenance is seasonal, organic, fair-traded and localised. It’s cheffed by Josh and his team in a new twist on old school brigade cooking – expect guest chefs! OIi makes front of house seem easy with his laid-back but ATD style.

    1. I’m just super-pleased that Josh and Oli had the balls to get it together, Marcus. Hopefully the Kalver er s√¶d med balsmic glasur will be on the menu next week.

Please leave a comment. Many thanks.
