Coqbull Soho chicken licken and moolicious food

Coqbull Soho is a restaurant located right in the middle of the vibrant Soho in London who serves free range Norfolk chicken and burgers as well as vegan dishes. They have four floors including a roof top terrace with a fully catered bar making it a perfect place to visit no matter what the weather.

Using free range to me is very important as it means that the animal was free to roam outdoors rather than being confined in cages or enclosures. They also enjoy finer feeds which means that they are healthier.

I love chicken and burgers so to have a restaurant which is dedicated to serving both is great. Also the best thing is that all their meat is sourced from The Butchers Block within London who sources the best free range meat within the UK. They are a third generation family of butchers who are committed to serving the best of British produce as all their meat is free range.

Did you know that eating free range or organic chicken meat is better for you as it generally has a higher proportion of omega-3 fatty acids compared with intensively reared chicken meat, with a similar ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. Eating free range beef is also a plus as instead of the cows being fed grains they feed on grass which is high in key nutrients like omega-3s and vitamin B. So free range beef is much leaner, healthier and tastes a lot better than grain fed beef.

Courtesy of Coqbull I was invited to sample their great tasting free range chicken and burgers.

Coqbull Soho

There is a new chicken and burger joint in town thanks to founder Patrick Frawley.

After having a great success with their two venues based within Ireland, he know brings to London Soho his lively and energetic take on casual dining to town.

Coqbull Soho consists of three exquisite bars spread across four floors with a spacious outside dining area and a one-of-a-kind rooftop terrace with heaters and blankets at the ready.

If you have a date coming up, a group occasion or need to take over an entire floor or the full venue Coqbull is the place.

Chicken Licken and Moolicious food

Coqbull is different to other burger restaurants as they don’t just serve beef burgers but also chicken and vegetarian dishes as well as great cocktails.

Entering Coqbull right from the off provides a buzzing atmosphere, great service and chicken licken chicken and moolicious beef burgers as well as some great tasting veg dishes.

The restaurant expands over four floors and even has an al fresco rooftop where you can dine or enjoy cocktails. I was seated downstairs next to the window near the bar which provided plenty of light and situated away from others which suited me.

They have two menus an a la carte menu as well as at present a Summer Menu which is priced at £25 which you are entitled to a pre-set cocktail, starter and main which is a bargain. However note if you do order from the Summer Menu there will be a added discretionary fee of 12.5% for service.

Looking over the a la carte menu there is a great selection to choose from and so many different burgers from chicken, beef and vegetable to enjoy.

To experience all that Coqbull is famous for I opted for the chicken and my husband Jason a beef burger. Before that though we enjoyed several starters of Popcorn Chicken and the Cauliflower Wings.

The Popcorn Chicken was great. Pieces of succulent chicken coated in crisp herby breadcrumbs with a kick of pepper. It also came with a delicious habanero mayo which was creamy with a tad of spiciness to it. Popping with texture and taste.

The Cauliflower Wings are coated with a sticky coating and the cauliflower itself is nice and tender. Along with a sweet and spicy chipotle veganise. I’m not really one for vegetable dishes but I really loved this dish and will certainly be ordering it again.

Now for mains. I decided to order Coqbull famous chicken. You can choose from a whole chicken or half a rotisserie chicken. All their chickens are soaked for two days in tea brine, then steamed and rubbed with Coqbull award winning Coqrub before finally being finished within a rotisserie. I opted for Half the Chicken and I was highly surprised as it was absolutely chicken licken delicious. The chicken skin was crisp with a herby flavour, the chicken breast succulent and moist all of which was served alongside a tasty herby bread stuffing plus gravy. Even though the chicken never came served with chips or potatoes I did not miss them as the stuffing itself was a great substitute and lots of it.

Coqbull beef burgers are made from cows which have been grass fed and only contains 10% fat. There is quite a selection of different burgers to choose and Jason chose the Smokin’ Bull which came with double beef patty, loaded with smoked Applewood cheese, crisp bacon, smoked BBQ mayo and tobacco onions. Even though the burger is not as big as other burgers we’ve had in London it still looked impressive and packed. The burger according to Jason was meaty, juicy, great texture and flavoursome. The chips were a perfect thickness, crisp and fluffy.

If you love burgers but don’t like beef Coqbull also sells chicken and vegetarian burgers.

To finish the night for dessert there is a great range to choose from be it waffle, mousse, or ice cream there is a sweet treat for all. I opted for the Kinder Waffle and Jason the Eton Mess.

The Kinder Waffle for me was a great way to end a perfect night of great food. As the waffle lived up to all expectations being warm, thick and topped with great creamy vanilla ice cream and a Kinder Bar. What’s not to love.

The Eton Mess was loaded with fresh raspberries, raspberry sauce, chunks of meringues, ice cream and cream which was certainly a different take on your normal Eton Mess. The great thing about this dessert was that the raspberries just kept on appearing throughout the entire dessert.

Also during the night we had a few cocktails from an Espresso Martini, Velvet Picante and Jammy Dodger. All of which looked lovely.

The Espresso Martini was nice with a great froth but however it lacked creaminess as it tasted a little too icy and watery for my liking. Still though I still enjoyed it but I probably won’t order again.

The Velvet Picante is made with charcoal and chilli infused tequila, Cointreau, agave and lime. For me this cocktail was a little too odd as I could taste the charcoal so gave an odd texture as well as taste plus a little too spicy.

Jason had the Jammy Dodger which was rum based, with gingerbread, cranberry, blueberry, marmalade and lemon. It was a sweet cocktail which came topped with a jammy dodger. It was a nice fruity refreshing cocktail.

To end the night we enjoyed a glass of Prosecco on the roof which was a lovely area to chill overlooking the hustle and bustle of London life and the sun setting. The rooftop is great for summer or winter as it is covered and has heaters.

Coqbull is different to other burger restaurants as they do not just serve beef burgers but also chicken and vegetarian dishes as well as great cocktails.

After experiencing and tasting the fabulous food at Coqbull they are now one of my new favourite restaurants within London. Why? Well for me the portions were great, the food delicious, the meat is free range and the restaurant had a great atmosphere.

The beauty also about this restaurant is it’s size as they have four floors in total with alfresco dining on the roof so no matter if you are a party of two or a party of 100 you will be easily accommodated. Obviously though if you are booking a large group it is recommended to book.

So if your craving chicken, a burger or even a vegetarian I highly recommend Coqbull as their food is seriously good.
