From the award-winning team behind the Pig & Butcher Islington, Princess of Shoreditch and Smokehouse restaurants   

Scott & Maria Hunter have partnered with original Pig & Butcher team, Michael Chan and Jack Ross, and opened a new farm to fork pub in Clapham’s Old Town. 
The Pig’s Head is on the site of former Clapham pub The Rectory and doing things a little bit differently to a traditional local.  

That’s because the Pig’s Head aims to be a planet-friendly pub with A 60 cover bar area and a bright, spacious 40 cover dining room with open plan farmhouse kitchen.

Daily a la carte menus are designed by head chef Michael Chan. Sharing or go-it-solo dishes include of Fried Cooley Gold oyster with smoked seaweed mayo (£3.50 each), Smoked bone marrow & turnip dip with sour crackers (£2.50); Buttermilk chicken, treacle & malt vinegar glaze with Early Grey yoghurt or – the house special – Crispy pig’s head, pickled radish & creamed leeks.  

Drinking food includes sharing boards of Paddock Farm Scotch egg, crispy chicken skin, frickles, sweet potato chip butty, smoked turnip dip, bacon jam, crostini & dining room pickles.

There’s also Pig’s Head takes on pub classics like Steak pie for two with Lyons Hill Farm beef suet top, beef dripping cabbage & mash or 42-day aged sirloin from Ivy House Farm with smoked bone marrow, Marmite onions, dripping & chicken salt chips.  

Vegan & vegetarian dishes include the likes of ‘Baked Bean’ terrine, tomato jam & piccalilli; Coal-roasted squash, burnt orange, kale & pumpkin seed ‘ricotta’, Ale-braised turnip gratin, cavolo nero, Young Buck Blue & tarragon crumble or Celeriac schnitzel with seaweed, crispy caper dressing & pickled red cabbage.  

The pub has a sustainability-first approach. Meat is butchered on site, working with whole animals to reduce wastage and emissions. Around half the menu is also dedicated to plant-based dishes using native produce from family-run farms.  

As well as local craft beer, they’ve sourced sustainable spirits for cocktails by the jug. Spirits are UK made by small-batch producers who are also doing their bit to minimise their mark on the environment. British alternatives are used over imported produce.  

Pig’s Head uses 100% sustainable electricity and is cleaned with 100% biodegradable chemicals. A. They will compost on site, avoiding the emissions of transporting food waste and making top-drawer compost available to guests, local residents, or local allotments.
