The Cheese Truck announced as latest pop-up at London's King & Co pub

The Cheese Truck pop-up has taken over as the latest residency at London pub the King & Co, in Clapham.

Having first opened on 30 December, the pop-up will run until 31 January, with the kitchen open from 5pm on weekdays and from 12 noon at weekends for brunch.

Created by Mathew Carver, the Cheese Truck began in 2013 as a 1970-style ice-cream van serving grilled cheese sandwiches at summer music festivals across the UK. This will be its first extended residency ahead of its planned permanent opening later this year.

The business seeks to work closely with producers, using cheese sourced directly from UK farms.

Dishes available will include the Keens Cheddar and Ogleshield sandwich; the Rosary goats cheese sandwich with honey, walnut and rosemary butter; and new desserts such as goats cheese panna cotta with rhubarb compote.

There will also be an "all day plates" menu, including sweet Dorset ricotta and glazed strawberries on toasted Brioche; the Mexican ‘queso fundido' with peppers and chorizo; or aligot with Cumberland sausage and caramelised onions.

The King & Co itself will also offer bottomless Bloody Marys, Cava and selected cask ale for £15 during the daytime on Saturdays and Sundays for those eating at the Cheese Truck.

Carver commented: "We're really excited to share our new menu with Londoners this January. It's a continuation of our love affair with British cheese and a celebration of the committed cheese makers the UK has to offer. The King and Co for us is a natural choice; their love of great British beers matches our ethos and brand values 100%."

This is the latest in pop-up residencies inspired by street food and pop-up chefs at the pub in recent months, which have included Vinn Goute, Miss P's Barbecue, Zoe's Ghana Kitchen and the Donostia Social Club.
