Koop + Kraft - Waterlooville - Restaurant Review (AD)
Now that restaurants are open, I was invited to check out Koop + Kraft as part of their reopening after lockdown .(GIFTED)
I've never heard of Koop + Kraft before as they are based a little further from Portsmouth than I usually venture. It was about 10 minute drive from Portsmouth, based in Waterlooville on London Road. I was initially a little put off by the drive but there is free parking from 6:00pm only 30 seconds away. Perfect for dinner time!
Koop + Kraft is the perfect cosy spot for drinks or dinner. With a comfy but rustic interior, low light, it is a great casual place to grab a bite. There are a number of booths available which means you can easily get a big table for all your friends and family. I had the pleasure of sharing my booth with Saffron Watson (you can check out her blog here).
First off we started with drinks. I'm normally a beer person (of which they have a great selection!) but I had seen some of their cocktails on Instagram before arriving and knew I had to try one. I went for their Sunrise Sour which was beautiful! (both to the eyes and the mouth). A cocktail consisting of Absolut Citron, Disaronno, Blood Orange Tonic and Pineapple Juice which came out with a bubble of smoke on top. When you pop the bubble, make sure you have your camera ready to get that on Instagram straight away!
Saffron went for an Isle Of White Mermaid Gin and Tonic (one of many choices available) and she said it was the best pink gin she had ever tasted! We love a good pink gin here at The Eat Sheets.
Then on to the main event! The Food!
We had quite a selection to choose from so I got to try a lot of the menu. Let me tell you, there wasn't anything to complain about. Here's what I tried:
- Cheese Please burger
- Bacon+Black burger (Don't be afraid of the black pudding!)
- Chicken Tenders
- Chicken Wings
- Cheesy Chips (It's a no brainer)
- Dirty Fries (Why dirty fries aren't on every menu everywhere I will never know)
- Curry Fries (The back country in me was jumping for joy!)
- Halloumi Fries (Another no brainer)
- Cheesy Garlic Bread
