The dining experience begins with supercharged wings, cooked over a bed of charcoal, to elevate the experience.

Next comes potato and gravy served with a wax candle and then diners are to be presented with the Colonel’s face made from some of their most popular sauces.

‘Don’t be shy, there are no rules here! Pick up your plate and lick off the Colonel’s face to relish the flavours of Kentucky Fried Chicken, tomato, lettuce and Pepper Mayo,’ they said.
