Not sure why I haven't reviewed this eatery before as I've eaten here a few times and always loved it. As the name implies, it sells good, honest, no frills chicken, spit-roasted with great success! There's not a great choice, but people don't come for...More

I went for a Sunday brunch, in Ealing Broadway and I loved it. The food was delicious and the place was vibey but not loud. The staff are friendly and very efficient. Will definitely come back and I highly recommend it
