I have ordered from here to take away and was really impressed with the fresh ingredients, flavour and how it was cooked so returned today with some work colleagues. The venue has a nice atmosphere with good lighting and comfortable seating. The service has always been great each time i've visited and today was no exception. The menu has a good selection though it doesn't veer too far away from burgers and chicken. If they added onion rings to the menu my life would be complete. I will certainly be returning with friends as I enjoyed the food and ambiance. The staff are so polite and genuinely friendly. The price is not cheap, but if you want a burger king prices then go to burger king.

Had a great meal here, warm, friendly, helpful staff and very good food. The portions were a good size for adults and children. It was very wet outside and good to feel welcome - a great atmosphere in this restaurant. Will come again.

Day 1 - Staying away on business, wanted a change of scenery for evening meal/ drinks and joined by a colleague for dinner. Tried the CKN (directly next door to Premier Inn) for the first time and found the place to be relaxed, informal but smart with a nice atmosphere. We shared a whole chicken, skinny fries, sweet potato fries and slaw, with chocolate brownie desert. The service was really friendly and nicely paced, the food was really really good, fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection. Some chicken restaurants can overcook or over spice the food, but this was perfection. Both of us were impressed and said we would definitely revisit.

Day 2 - impressed by the previous evening, I revisited solo and was welcomed by a friendly waitress. The place was slightly busier meaning a short wait would be needed for half chicken. The waitress recommended the burger selection and so I chose the CKN burger, slaw and skinny fries with a Sol beer. I would have had half chicken out of habit and the burger was really really good and again cooked perfectly, so glad it was recommended. Finished with salted caramel cheesecake which was lovely. Service was excellent.

Overall, I am really impressed with CKN and its staff and could not fault it at all. The restaurant is smart, friendly and relaxed. I would recommend CKN, and if in a group, call ahead to avoid any waits. I will definitely revisit and look forward to doing so.

Thank you.
