Relaunch: Spreading Their Wings

Fried chicken sensation, Chick’n has just relaunched with a brand-new site in Notting Hill, a new name, Chicken Shop, and a new partnership with Soho House. 

When Carl Clarke and David Wolanski first imagined their much-loved concept in the fields of Latitude Festival four years ago, they had one simple mission in mind – to make the best fried chicken in the Capital, and they’ve been doing just that. While the relaunch promises to ruffle a few feathers, fans of the cult burger brand needn’t worry, crowd-pleasers such as the no-nonsense Straight Up (perfectly seasoned fried chicken sandwiched between soft potato buns alongside fresh lettuce, buttermilk and herb mayo and pickles), or the trademark chicken tenders with sticky Sichuan sauce and legendary house fries will still be on the menu. They’ll be joined by some exciting additions, though, including the No Way Gangnam, a spicy plant-based fillet paired with gochujang mayo and kimchi slaw. Co-founder Carl tells us: “We’re very excited about this great partnership and a tasty new name, but as always – our signature food stays the same. We make, and will continue to make, unbeatable fried chicken. We are Chicken Shop: this is chicken and then some.”

The relaunch will see all existing sites refurbished, starting with Baker Street and Islington. The new Notting Hill site opened late last month. 88 Notting Hill Gate, W11 (
