From the creators of the 12 inch ‘Massive C*ck’ burger comes afternoon tea in true dirty bird style at Merrion Street’s favourite fried chicken restaurant and bar. Expect three layers of crunchy, sweet, savoury and all round delicious servings, starting with a huge bowl of fries with buttermilk fried chicken and crispy smoked bacon.

If that wasn’t enough, sweet treats come in the shape of Kinder Bueno cookie pie and dulce de leche sea salted brownies with marshmallows, fresh strawberries and oozing with chocolate sauce laden over the desserts.

Each afternoon tea ticketcomes with a cocktail of your choice before watching in awe of a fabulous Royal Variety spin-off performance set to shake the whole house down.

Yard & Coop have said: “Dedecked and bejewelled in their finest Crown Jewels, they gonna sashay, shantay, fried chicken on the runway. Regal realness” is to be expected, and for a more than reasonable price of £25, this exciting event is set to sell out quickly.
