Retro puddings and pinball machines rather than service washes will be the order of the day when a City restaurant opens its doors.

Coin Laundry is set to launch in Clerkenwell on Monday, November 16, but diners should leave their dirty undies and bags of spare change at home.

Instead, the Exmouth Market restaurant is all about classic comfort food from the 1970s and 1980s with the likes of Black Forest gateau and lamb faggots on the menu.

Its signature dish will be chicken Kiev made with foraged garlic and a secret recipe for breadcrumbs.

Central to its offering, a designated Kiev Counter will even announce the number left in the kitchen.

Those with a sweet tooth may find summer pudding and trifle, washed down with Soda Stream cocktails and Snowballs, more to their taste.

When bellies are full, the comfy couches and arcade machine across the two-floor eatery offer relaxation.

An events programme of club nights, book clubs and pop up shops is also planned.

Coin Laundry, which is located at 70 Exmouth Market, is the latest project from the team behind Ask For Janice and Alice House .
