Whyte and Brown in Kingly Court celebrates the humble chicken and egg. Kingly court itself is an al-fresco dining destination tucked behind Libertys and has a vibrant and boisterous atmosphere.
Inside was deceptively calm.
But that’s because we are in England, and it’s summer. That means everybody wants to be outside!
What ever happened to ‘mobiles on the table’ rule?
We were seated upstairs where we perched happily and picked which lovely chicken we fancied.
Hubby can never resist ordering bread and nibbles.
The butter is stuffed full of herbs and other delights.
My Pisco Sour with cranberry purée and rhubarb bitter (sounds almost healthy!).
Pimms and Strawberry Margarita Supreme went down a treat.
Cheers! This was a happy occasion for us to catch up with our son and for our daughter to catch up with her bestie from uni.
3 floors of restaurants, cafes and bars create a unique atmosphere. The courtyard gets covered over in winter where I imagine outdoor heaters replace the parasols.
Our starters arrive. Black pudding scotch egg. Egg-cellent!
Summertime on toast, hot and sticky wings and crispy buttermilk goujons.
‘I relax by catching up with my friends and family’
The mains are impressive. Pulled chicken bap with apple and blue cheese slaw.
Chicken paillard with lemon.
The tallest burger to date! Chicken thigh, leak, bacon and cheddar burger.
These chips – sweet potato with pieces of chorizo! That’s going on the menu at home.
The girls enjoyed a chicken souvlaki, a Greek affair.
The desserts were wonderful. We ordered 3 to share. This one was the British bakewell cheesecake.
Lemon tart slice with mint creme-fraiche
All these desserts were really good, but we all agreed this brownie was the King. Gooey, flavoursome and that salted caramel ice-cream was the crowning glory.
We had a stroll around Carnaby before we said our goodbyes. Its a great area and Kingly Court is iconic and well worth a visit. Check Whyte and Brown out here and other restaurants in Kingly Court here.
