This site (formerly Poulet Rouge) has now been turned into a branch of Chicken Shop by Soho House. While much of the menu replicates the branches – roast chicken, plus sides, and few desserts – there is also the twist that breakfast and brunch is served from 8am, hence the 'and Egg' part of the name.

Like Poulet Rouge before it the room's a good-looking space, though this time the interior designer has given some attention the (previously thunderously loud) acoustics. Cork celiing and lino floor help make the noilse levels acceptable.

Both chicken and side orders are good, making this in effect a superior version of Nando's for the well-heeled of Balham.

I just called to ask for a take away option which apparently is not available yet for a minimum order & a delivery charge I can get a take out delivered to my door...50m down the road. No thanks. I certainly feel that money can be better spent elsewhere like other reviewers.

 Poor service with bland food. Foodies are advised to spend there money elsewhere.

So excited that this is open on my door step - went there for brunch and it was great - have been to the tooting one for Chicken too and that was also great. Really reasonable and would highly recommend their delicious chips as a side - they taste suitably unhealthy but I dont want healthy chips
