“Best chicken ever”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Used to live down the road and when moved away it was a must visit whenever visiting locally. Best fried chicken I've ever had and the wings are awesome. Good choice of dips and sauces but I always go with traditional coleslaw and garlic mayo.. Only down side, is it should be open longer

“Marstons is a hidden Jem, simply THE best Fried Chicken in the UK”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We stumbled upon Marston's Chicken Shop whilst in Huddersfield collecting an Ebay item, the house we were collecting it from was across the road from Marstons, as we approached and parked up we could not help noticing the massive queue inside and at least 20 people outside Marstons, along with a packed car park too. We collected our Ebay purchase and decided to leave the car parked on the road and wander across to see what the commotion was about...

As we got to the back of the queue the atmosphere was great, everyone was chatting and telling others how great it was here, what their favorite sauces were etc... how could we resist. after waiting a looong time in the queue it was finally our turn, the chicken was coming out from the fryers none stop thanks to the chefs who had bonkers full arm length silicone gloves on, allowing them to dip their arms inside the fryers, crazy.

We had a selection of Fried Chicken each, along with a portion of Hotwings and 5 sauces from the massive selection, all are home made and taste delicious. The Chicken is THE best I've tasted, like KFC should be and how it used to be in the USA, crispy batter packed with flavour, not greasy at all. the dipping sauces are to die for, all of them... my fave being the cajun sauce...

One note, this is not a sit down restaurant, it has no seating inside... think of it more like a chip shop... but serves the best Fried Chicken you're ever likely to taste :)

Oh god im going to have to visit the place again now, its worth the 20 mile trip indeed.

“Over-priced food, miserable staff”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

The food is over-priced for fried chicken.. VERY over-priced.. it gets over-crowded in the small doorway and the only nice member of staff (red hair? about 20/21 years old) was only there a few weeks and she left. She was the onlyone who ever smiled or said please and thank you!
