We arrived and with no queue, were told we'd have to wait about 15mins. We stood in the waiting area while the manager got us drinks and saw the queue grow vastly in a very short space of time! We were seated within about 10mins and were told we only had the table for an hour. Although this isn't the way I like to eat it suits the restaurant and it isn't really the kind of place I'd want a long drawn out meal. The one hour policy, although initially off-putting, was totally in context as the food arrived so quickly. We did wait a few minutes to be served but it was only a matter of minutes after we ordered that the food arrived as they are constantly cooking it. The chicken was absolutely delicious, the crinkle fries cooked to perfection and the avocado/lettuce salad well dressed. The manager was friendly and everything happened with speed. It's definitely more a case of grabbing a quick bite to eat than enjoying a leisurely meal, but that's what fast food is all about, right?

We arrived at 7.45 and were told we would have a table in 30mins, we went across the road to the Vine for a drink,and were called on our mobile to say the table was ready. The place was full, great atmosphere, wonderfull staff and the chicken is great! sides are also good, and the apple pie stunning. A really good evening, we left at 10 pm so no rush. Great value

Had a meal here with our grandchildren and their parents, at 5 30 on a Saturday, it was great. Not a scrap left!! The chicken was very beautifully moist and well spiced. We shared deserts which were extremely good. We liked the unfussy atmosphere with enamel plates and bowls, just great for a three and a six year old. We loved the open kitchen, great. We paid £100 for the six of us but that included a £25 jug of fine, so called, wine. The beer was best choice. They handled the gluten free diet well.

So two negatives, considering it is best to eat with your fingers, thicker napkins would be better, and the wine was not up to much.
This is as far as you can get from fine dining but the greatest of fun.

The chicken at the chicken shop is really lovely. Full of flavour, tender and moorish. The fries are good but wasnt keen on the coleslaw, seemed a bit bland. However very good atmosphere, lively and fun. Good selection of drinks too.

Thank LondonHeather
