Endless thanks to the Clutch Chicken team for pulling out all the stops, and to all the members of the London Cheap Eats team for taking snaps and sharing the event live on social media throughout the night (still lots of stories over on our Instagram page). But most of all, thanks to the 125 people who took a punt on our first event and joined us on the night, and for your awesome patience with any teething problems. You guys are the greatest.

Thanks to the success our fans helped us make of our first go at this, you can expect more London Cheap Eats £8 Pop-ups in the future. And we will always be improving them. Keep tabs on our social media accounts, or sign up to our newsletter, for up-to-date info on future events we'll be hosting in 2017.

Until then, keep up the great eating.

EVENT: We've launched London Cheap Eats £8 Pop-Ups!

Oh boy, do we have EXCITING news. We are delighted to announce that we are launching the first of a new and ongoing series of tasty events brought to you by the team behind London Cheap Eats: London Cheap Eats £8 Pop-Ups! (event page here)

Every day, we scour the city's streets to seek out the best cheap eats to share with our loyal readers on this website, and through our social channels. But we want to give you more.

We want other great restaurants, that would usually fall outside of our magic £8 mark, to put something special on for you guys. So we're collaborating with select venues across London, to host exclusive evenings for our faithful fans, showcasing one-off discounted menus, curated by the London Cheap Eats team.


Our first #LCEPopUp is with fancy free-range chicken restaurant, Clutch Chicken in Hoxton, on the evening of Thursday 1st December.


Sticking with our London Cheap Eats our ethos, tickets are just £8* each.

Your ticket includes entry on the night, as well as your meal. That's your choice of chicken main (vegetarian option available too), coated in the flavouring that takes your fancy, along with one of their tasty sides. You can see pictures of the night's menu scrolling above. Standard prices at Clutch Chicken are around double that; we hope you enjoy the 50% discount! There will also be a cracking Rn'B playlist for all round good vibes.

There are a limited number of tickets available, and this pop-up is on for one special night only. Most of the London Cheap Eats team will be joining the fried chicken festivities that evening too, so we hope to see you there!

  • Chicken tenders with fine semolina coating
  • Thigh and leg with crunchy coating

Discounted extras available to purchase on the night

We kindly ask that you are aware of the allotted time frames, to enable us to comfortably accommodate all our guests.


As well as the above, if you share a picture of your meal from the evening on social media, you'll automatically be entered into a draw for a chance to WIN a meal for two at Clutch Chicken, so you can return another day and carry on with the party. Full details of how to enter on the night.

"The success of our first London Cheap Eats Pop-Up will determine whether we do more of these in the future. Join us, have fun, spread the word, and there will be more of these to come."                                                                                            - The London Cheap Eats Team

If you have any questions about the event, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

*You'll notice Billetto add a small processing fee onto the £8 ticket. We do apologise, but it seems they're unavoidable. We've scoured the ticketing platforms available and have chosen the one with the required features at the lowest fees. We hope you don't mind forking out those few extra pennies.
