They give you a complimentary bread, garlic butter and this chicken dripping sauce that no one has ever managed to copy, it's the finest precursor to your well cooked chicken. The Sole, when they have it is also superb!

Definitely the best chicken and chips in town!!! Loved the peri peri sauce, and the indulgent dipping sauce that comes with the soft white bread at the beginning of the meal!

A very popular place in the city centre. I loved their chicken and chips, the portion is so huge, I had it for lunch and supper! A bit noisy though if you want a business lunch
