Rotisserie Chicken
Yardbird is our rotisserie chicken restaurant upstairs above The Dirty Onion. Our menu is small but our flavours are big. Ok, we do chicken, but our chicken is famous!

Our local free-to-roam chicken is marinated for 24 hours in lemon, buttermilk, and paprika. It is then dry-rubbed, cooked and blast-chilled to keep it juicy and finally roasted on the spit. Ribs and wings are also available, as are a choice of sides and homemade desserts. Hungry yet?

We prepare all our food in-house and service is fast!

Absolutely fantastic food. Melt in the mouth chicken and fall off the bone ribs. Service is quick and friendly and the place has a really nice atmosphere.

Even though a last minute booking the staff were very welcoming, the menu was explained in detail as were the drinks options. All staff were very approachable and friendly and all Covid safety measures were in place and very visible. All staff certainly knew how to act in the Covid scenario and were always very helpful. The food was delicious, the rib and wing combo was exceptional. I’m heading back to Belfast again next week and I think another visit to the Yardbird is on the cards. 👍

Everything was great apart from the lighting, it was really dark at the table we were sat at and we could hardly see our food... the food and the staff etc were all great though.

A very casual, laid back restaurant offering excellent value. I had half chicken, chips and cole slaw and it was extremely filling. The chicken is very nice indeed and would certainly return when I'm back in town.

The chicken, ribs and chicken wings were amazing! The chips were very pale and bland. Guinness was ok. Poor service, when asked for dessert menu the guy gave us the bill, we had asked for our leftover food to put in a take away box, we never got it back which was very disappointing as we had alot of food left and we intended to have it for breakfast.

I'm not going to critise the staff as I know they are under a lot of pressure and done a fantastic job on the day but yardbirds menu is quite small and not a lot of choice for a menu. Also the chicken itself was very dry and the rib was more fat than meat. The place itself is very dark so it's not a great place for someone like myself who has sight issues.

Have always been regulars here, eating at least once a month and sometimes twice. Haven't been since the end of February and was really disappointed in the quality of the the food. The chips aren't even as described on the menu, mine were bits and pieces of broken fries, not "skin on fries" as described, luckily we got the meal deal, definitely not worth the price as in the menu. Totally dissapointed and probably won't be back.

We were disappointed to see that the actual restaurant had moved into the bar below, while we understood that it was most likely for social distancing measures if we had of known this before hand we would not have booked. Also disappointed we had to queue outside even though we had a table booked

Nice ambience in there, speakers from dirty onion so you can enjoy the live singer too.
Just basic chicken and simple menu but very tasty and good value for money
