The Cloak Room

The Cloak Room taproom and smokehouse is located at the top of St James’ Street, Kemptown. It‘s one of a small number of venues that marries amazing quality food and drink, of the type you’d find in high end restaurants, with a social, relaxed setting. Sustainably and locally sourced food is smoked locally in Hurstpierpoint creating a menu that’s a real game-changer. They cater for the individual customer’s need so many dishes can be made gluten free if they’re not already, although the kitchen does contain gluten and other allergens.
