Yard and Coop

Fried chicken places in Liverpool Yard and Koop

Yard and Coop specialise in Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Why Buttermilk I hear you ask? Buttermilk sticks to the chicken much better so the batter sticks even better! Yard and Coop doesn’t hold back from declaring its love of fried chicken with a menu packed with different options, as well as makeshift chicken coops to sit in while dining! You can get burgers, wraps and salads, or you can choose your type of chicken; wings, thighs, breast, nuggets, etc and choose a sauce to cover your fried goodness in. We recommend the Dr Pepper BBQ and the chip shop curry sauce!


Fried chicken places in Liverpool Pattersons

Marinated in their own secret recipe, Pattersons can give KFC a run for their money. The chicken is served by uncooked weight, from 250g to 1kg, so you just need to choose how much you think you can handle and decide on those all essential sides like gravy, slaw, onions rings and sauces including katsu and Jerk BBQ. There’s also plenty of burgers and loaded fries on the menu!
