There's a new pub coming to Fulham from the people behind the very popular restaurant Claude's Kitchen and Amuse Bouche champagne bar...
What you need to know about The Tommy Tucker
It sees the people from behind Claude's Kitchen open a pub. It's from Claude Compton, Jim Morris and George McCabe and they say they want to create a pub they "would choose to call their local".
The name comes from the cockney rhyming slang for ‘supper’. As Claude Compton says, "we ultimately aim for it to be the best version of what a traditional pub should be, a fun meeting place, the licensed extension of your living room and the pub everyone wishes they had as their local.”
The food will be "bridging flavoursome street food pizazz with Claude’s Michelin kitchen experience". So examples are:
- Bar Food dishes: The ‘Big-Mack’ Mackerel & Chorizo Burger / Buttermilk Rabbit Bites, Chilli & Tomato / Tomato & Beetroot Terrine
- Meat dishes: Smoked Beef Short-Rib, Salsa Verde – Arrocina ‘baked beans’ – Black Olives
- Fish dishes: Day Boat Fish, Jerusalem Artichoke – Fennel – Parsley Potatoes
- ‘Fruit & Veg’ dishes: Salt Baked Celeriac & Onion Squash - Winter Leaves – Mint & Caper Dressing
- Sides: Kale & Anchovy, Chicory Chop Salad, Sourdough & Whipped Herb Butter
Plus you can sell your own wine. Drinks-wise, alongside the wine, beer and spirits list there will be home-infused gins and bourbons and experimental takes on pub classics like the Bloody Mary. They'll also have a conditioned cellar for "aficionados to store and sell their own wines with a transparent mark-up on the price."
Where is it? 22 Waterford Road, Fulham, London SW6 2DR
When does it open? January 2015
