Finger-licking good stuff over on Edge Street.

Yard and Coop is all about the chicken - simply pick your cut (we recommend thigh, which is still boneless but packs a lot more punch than any breast can hope for), crumb, sauce and sides, and you're good to go. 

For a straight-up trio (chicken, chips and slaw), you’ll end up paying just over a tenner, and while the slaw might not be as crunchy or fresh as you might need to cut through the grease, the chicken itself is really pretty decent and benefits from a great, secret-recipe crumb.

If you’ve got room for yet more gluttony other sides include deep fried pickles, onion petals in a crispy tempura batter, hush puppies (bread dippers with ale), or for something lighter there’s a five bean salad, peas with mint and chilli and a heritage tomato and onion salad. 

There are few vegetarian options on the menu, which is unashamedly 99% chicken, but for those not after a bit of cluck there’s crumb coated halloumi (under the affectionate moniker of ‘not chicken nuggets’), which can either be ordered as is or in a wrap.

Most people go here to eat, but the bar area is also worthy of your time; one of Yard and Coop’s greatest assets is a fairly extensive beer selection, which sees a house pilsner and wheat beer on tap, along with the likes of Kona Big Wave, Anchor Liberty and Blanche De Buxelles in the fridge. They also have pre-mixed house cocktails in ready-to-serve bottles, but expect to pay a rather princely sum of £7 for these – perhaps a little steep given that they’re not made to order, so go for a classic cocktail using their barrel-aged spirits instead.
