Located on Bath Street, Bloc is an ideal pitstop for a casual lunch. Try the Southern Chicken Burger, breast of corn-fed chicken coated in southern spices with a habanero and apricot sauce. Skint? Get down to Bloc on a Thursday, when it’s Kentucky Thursday. For £4 you can feast on seasoned chicken breast strips Kentucky style with seasoned fries and slaw, much better than a Bargain Bucket!

Max’s Bar & Grill


Another popular choice for fried chicken is Max’s Bar & Grill on Queen Street. Choose from either the All American Chicken and Waffles, Chicken in a Basket or Louisiana Chicken, the choices are endless!
