Great place But they have false advertising on the menu says for a pint 4 pound, but you only get a bottle that Is half of a pint. I was disappointed in the fact that the manager talked with me and still tried to charge me for a pint when I was only getting a bottle!!!

It’s 8.30pm on a cold Tuesday evening, and there’s a queue of customers waiting to be seated at Chicken Shop. The beau monde of Tooting are out in force, perching on bar stools, cradling glasses of wine and texting friends excitedly. Tooting’s not seen the like before.
The dining area’s in two parts: the rotisserie grill at the front, and a hidden room through the back. It’s all very beautifully styled, like a Cath Kidston garden shed. The lighting is low and flattering.
At this smaller branch of the Soho House restaurant in Kentish Town, the menu is as prosaic as the original’s: grilled free-range chicken, with chips and side salads, plus a few desserts. Half a chicken feeds two, and still leaves plenty for a doggy bag. The chicken is succulent, the fries crisp, the creamy coleslaw well worth the £4 charged. Pale corn-on-the-cob and even the green salad all exceed expectations.
To drink there’s Italian lager, bottles of Camden Pale Ale, wines. If you’ve any room left, calorific desserts (brownie, lemon cheesecake, apple pie) will plug the gap. On our visit the service was unfailingly smiling and enthusiastic, and we left very satisfied.

Succulent chicken, fresh and delicious coleslaw and moreish crinkle chips. The chicken shop is beautiful.
Such a lovely place to go. Food was brilliant along with the staff. Absolutely amazing atmosphere. Wish I could go every night xxx
Delicious chicken, friendly staff and good value. Not sure how the reviewer managed to feed two people and have plenty left for a doggy bag from half a chicken? Are you on hunger strike?
A fantastic addition to Tooting close to Tooting Broadway station. It has a lovely warm atmosphere and great tasting rotisserie chickens and sides! Absolutely loved it here and will be back soon for sure! Great value! The staff were great and very attentive too.
