My kids love this place. The fried chicken is great but the potion size I feel for the price is quite small. The hot dog and salad which I had is quite miserable so best for good quality fried chicken.

Have visited a few times. Food good for restaurant type fast food. Atmosphere better in evenings. Staff are not happy to be working there, nor are they attentive. Also they tend to squish people into tables next to one another, even though the rest of the restaurant is empty. It isn't a big place so I can't see why there is a need to do that. It makes people uncomfortable.

Lovely place and very friendly staff. Great cocktails. We went for a dessert we had seen on the website but were told this was an old photo and they didn’t do it anymore. Disappointed!! Had to have another cocktail instead. Probably did the waistline a favour.

Amazing service, delectable food. It was a great place for a get-together with friends. Would 100% recommend the macaroni and cheese. Be prepared to eat a lot and quite literally roll out of the restaurant on your stomachs if you do it right.

Went for a birthday lunch. The busy vibe is great and the food and drinks are top quality. A lot of new staff training at the time we went and our order was mixed up. But no one hurt. Would go again.

We really liked the alcoholic drinks; the Lexy was awesome! The service was good and the food was okay. The chicken in the salad was rib meat not white and I didn’t expect that considering you are known for your chicken ( and we saw it all being fried!.)

To say they only really do chicken or burgers you'd think they couldn't get it wrong... But they did.

We were 2 of 4 people who had problems with our food. One lady had an undercooked chicken burger, a gentleman and me and my fiance all had undercooked or cold fried chicken that was bland anyway. Better off at KFC.

We told staff when they asked and they offered us free dessert but by this point we just wanted to leave...

Didn't offer to remove our meal from the bill so we had to pay for chicken we couldn't eat.

Wouldn't go here again if I was paid to. Maybe it was an off day..maybe not but I won't be finding out

We took advantage of the £5 come Cocktails which were delicious! Then we ordered the chicken taco, the original burger and some fries and shared these, perfect amount of food! Lots of things I wanted to try so will definitely be returning at some point.

Met for an early brunch. Great food, good drink options (though I wasnt the biggest fan of their take on the bloody mary) and quick service. I will be back soon with another brunch crew. ticked all the boxes

I have been to the restaurant before and saw the Brunch menu and had to return to try it!

Great food, nice selection of cocktails.

Ideal place for everyday dining and meeting up with friends.

I will be back again 😊
