The focus on chicken at this Clapham restaurant suggests they took titular inspiration from the Deep South, rather than prison slang ('a prisoner') or the name the armed forces gave trainees in the Second World War. The rotisserie yardbirds here come with jerk seasoning, are deep-fried or are served 'naked'. Customers can order them by the quarter, the half-bird or the whole flapper. There are small plates, too, including chicken nachos, wings, salads, Korean fried chicken and chicken mac and cheese bites. Coffee also features, as do cocktails (think negronis, espresso martinis, margaritas and sours), a good selection of beers by the can (and three on tap), and a short selection of wine.
