Chicken restaurant makes Manchester debut

A new buttermilk-fried chicken restaurant concept has launched in Manchester's Northern Quarter.

Yard and Coop is the brainchild of Carl Morris, former head of marketing at Revolution Bars Group, and business partner Laura Morris.

The 120-seat casual dining venue on Edge Street has two separate dining areas and an airy, contemporary design. There is also a 12-metre long concrete bar where diners can have a pre- or after-dinner drink.

The dedicated chicken-only menu offers items such as breast or thigh buttermilk-fried chicken (£6) with a choice of sauces, sides and dressings. Other options include chicken wraps (£8.50), burgers (£8.50) and balls (£6.50) as well as sharing plates.

Carl said: "With more than 30 years' combined experience in the hospitality industry, [Laura and I] want to create a unique menu that will allow us to pull together the best elements of casual dining concepts we have experienced around the world."

The opening creates 35 jobs. Every member of the team, from kitchen to bar staff, has been trained in every area of the business and will work shifts in different sections of the restaurant.
