The Rum Kitchen

A few Thursday nights ago the hubby and I went to Rum Kitchen in Kingly Court with a couple of friends. I had never been inside Kingly Court before and thought it was wicked. OK, it is a bit like Disney Village but I liked it. It is definitely worth a post work visit to this little part of town for food and drinks.

Rum Kitchen do allow bookings and as it's a tiny restaurant, which was packed by the time we arrived at 6:30pm I would thoroughly recommend taking advantage of this. The food is served quickly and as it's ready. A few of the dishes are good for sharing. Although the portions don't look massive they are surprisingly filling.

We had some jerk chicken wings and saltfish fritters to share. I then opted for the jerk halloumi burger, which was delicious! The hubby had BBQ pork ribs, which were a couple of giant ribs! Our friends had a pulled pork bun and jerk fried chicken. The menu is tiny but what they do serve is piping hot and full of flavours. It's a dig in and get messy kind of affair.

They have bottles of red stripe for £4.50 and cocktails for £5 from 5-7pm (happy hour). The Daiquiri was delicious and well worth £5. They also have every single cocktail under the sun available at all hours from £9 a drink. 12.5% service will be added to your bill but service is genuinely with a smile. As mentioned the place is small and cramped and you will feel a little squeezed in but this all adds to the Caribbean vibe.

Grab some friends and head out for some cocktails and jerk! It's not too pricey so I doubt you will regret it!
