I was surprised to see an empty shop when we arrived, we found out that this location is closing down soon! There is another location nearby but not as close to our flat as this one.
As always, the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. I will miss having this location so close by.
At least the other locations will still be there. Highly recommended!

One of the best places in London for fresh rotisserie chicken and awesome Camden beer on tap!

The staff were very friendly but unfortunately the service was extremely slow, with only 2 waiters serving the busy restaurant.
The food didn’t taste great, wouldn’t recommend.

Gone down hill massively since it first opened. All down to the product. Chicken tasted chewy and not cooked right. The chips are awful with zero taste. I always have the apple pie but genuinely was put off with the main meal so didn't bother. The staff were brilliant but it felt very forced. Might of just had a bad experience but I can see why the Holloway Road opened and closed so quickly.

So long as you like chicken, its pretty hard to go wrong here. Lively, simple decor and friendly staff. And the wine comes in pitchers, which is always handy.

Always love coming here. The food and cocktails never disappoint. We like sitting at the bar and taking it all in. Such a nice evening out. Definitely have the chocolate brownie !

The chicken was fantastic. The menu is super-simple - you gotta like chicken - with decently priced drinks and selection. Very warm congenial atmosphere on a snowy day and very good service. Excellent value. Will return

My mates and I decided we needed somewhere to eat just before we went rave on New Year’s Eve. So I booked the table a good 10 hours prior to the time of booking only to turn up and the doors to be locked and the restaurant shut. Not only did they take my booking, they didn’t mention anywhere that the restaurant wasn’t going to be open. Not even on the website displaying the opening times.
Thoroughly disappointed. Completely wasted me and my friends’ time.
