On Saturday between 12 noon and 4pm, pub guests can enjoy a unique Beery Brunch – sampling 12 selected keg and cask beers alongside a sensational Thai twist on brunch favourites by current kitchen resident Tem Ban. Then from 7pm it’s time to party, with specially-brewed birthday beers hitting The King & Co’s newly-expanded tap line, plus drinks deals and a live DJ session by Tony Thorpe playing old school funk, dub and reggae until 1am.

To round out the birthday weekend festivities, Sunday afternoon will see a one-off Thai BBQ by Tem Ban (weather permitting) followed by live music from 7:30pm featuring Whom by Fire, Conrad Vingoe, Tony Shepherd and and resident quizmaster (and compere for the evening) Tommy McArdle. The King and Co are also offering ONE POINT EIGHT infused cocktails for just £6 each all weekend, including their Espresso Martini on tap.

Since its launch in September 2014, The King & Co has earned a reputation as a local pub with a difference.

The pub has become equally renowned for its series of acclaimed kitchen collaborations with prominent London popup chefs and streetfood traders (such as Allihopa, The Bell & Brisket, Fowl Mouths, and Donostia Social Club), which allows pub-goers the opportunity to experience a regularly-changing spread of remarkable food unlike anything else in the area.

The King & Co’s current residency by rising star Tem Ban runs until Sunday 2nd October, offering diners a weekly-rotating menu that combines the vibrancy of traditional Thai ingredients with modern cooking techniques. Designed to share so that everyone can experience a range of complimentary flavours, Tem Ban’s famed snacks and small plates like addictive Crispy Pigs Ears with sour burnt chilli sauce are served alongside mouth-watering new dishes such as rich Beef La Lot and fragrant whole Thai steamed fish. Those looking for a sweet finish to their Southeast Asian supper are sure to be satisfied by Tem Ban’s irresistible homemade Pandan Ice Cream drizzled with coconut and palm sugar caramel, and the pub’s daily specials board guarantees new delights with every visit.

SEEN was reminded of what a privilege it is to meet chefs and butchers who are truly passionate and single-minded about the food they prepare and cook. Thus it was at Sagardi in Shoreditch, where the ravenous foodie press was assembled earlier this week, to witness the butchery of, and subsequent cooking over a splendid barbecue grill, of a side of ox.
