This opening in Islington is right next door to the still heaving Trullo, and is billed as a simple neighbourhood rotisserie, offering a weekly changing, two or three course set menu.

"...add in the expertly-judged sides, the interesting (and resolutely British) starters and the finest roast potatoes in town you have yourself a real gem of a place." READ REVIEW

"Le Coq is the brainchild of sisters Ana and Sanja Morris. Their formula is a simple, ever-revolving seasonal menu, at a fair price, with roast chicken at its heart. If you’re fond of fowl, it’s clucking great." READ REVIEW

Critics' score: 8 Fay Maschler Evening Standard
Reviewed on August 28, 2013
"(The chickens') habitat is made manifest in texture, flavour and appearance — fat, shiny cushions merrily revolving. The meat is tender but agreeably confrontational, the taste lends positive definition to the phrase old-fashioned. A little jug of the juices described as “unadulterated” comes with the serving and only a mug would not order the potatoes and garlic cloves that roast in the dripping chicken fat." READ REVIEW
