Tell me that anyone could make a success out of selling just chicken and chips and you'd be wrong: that is until you visit this little citadel of fun.

We have been to chicken shack three years running. I wish we could work out your secret recipe for your chicken, it is scrummy. The atmosphere is great. Steve is a wonderful host. Can't wait to go again.

A very basic menu - chicken, chips, salad and drinks. This unusual restaurant is run by 2 people who have been there for many years. They remember you from year to year and even remember what you eat and drink. The ambience is superb and so friendly and the customers actually talk to each other regardless of what nationality they... More
