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!

This is a booking for Yardbird the restaurant, The Dirty Onion bar operates on a first come first serve basis.

    Food was good my chicken burger was taste but the street fries was the best thing we ordered so yummy.. My partner got the ribs very messy but good. The staff were very busy and forgot about our bill..Would say i didn't see a children's menu or anyone children in the place.. Was Quite expensive but i did want to try it..

    Can't fault food or atmosphere or staff but I can fault table booked for 8pm and food served at 9pm, with another table, who arrived after us, served before. Once order was taken not one came near us to say anything or update. Food was really nice and very reasonably priced, just slow to arrive.

    Lovely food. Terrible quantity. I ordered the combo and shared with a friend. My other two friends ordered a main and portion was a starter size. We all left starving and had to buy more food elsewhere. Such a shame

    Everything was good up until the end staff seemed to forget about the table. Left sitting for a long time eventually got up to ask for the bill which still never arrived. Got up to pay instead at the exit. Other than this food was good and service was friendly.

    Absolutely wonderful experience each time we visit. Staff are amazing, they remembered my daughter who has been struggling with school anxiety, their kind and caring interactions with her and remembering her fondly certainly boosted my daughter's self esteem. The food is so moreish, so delicious, always perfect. We will certainly be back and will highly recommend to all we encounter.

    Been a few times, food is good and handy location. But service this time was poor, no check back and no asking if we wanted more drinks/desert… after sitting ages had to just ask for the bill.

    Food was excellent after our initial disappointment of not being able to get a table the evening before. Only feedback would be that it was frustrating that we were told there was no table for an hour but they only way we could secure it was online and staff couldn't reserve. When we went online it showed no availability so we had to wait until the following night. Staff came across a little rude on that occasion but were very friendly and helpful the evening we actually got to eat there.

    Food was excellent, service could have been a little better - being shown to our table would have been good, drinks that arrived first time weren’t ours and my meat dish was late coming out (mix up on the order) but we were offered a discount for the delay. Will be back.
