A wide selection of fresh chicken sandwiches, wings, salads and wraps, plus pickle and mac and cheese sides with drinks including hand-spun shakes, IPA and unique cocktails such than the Corn Star Martini and Whiskey Smash.

Vegetable “chicken” will also be on the menu.

Phil Neale, spokesman for Boparan Restaurant Group, owner of Slim Chickens, said: “Nottingham is home to a thriving and diverse food scene, and we look forward to being part of it as we prepare to open our first-ever restaurant in the East Midlands.

“Slims is synonymous with premium, freshly cooked chicken, every time. We are passionate about quality and only use the best ingredients our customers deserve, including 100% natural British chicken and our own house recipes.

“We are committed to serving good food in a great atmosphere and look forward to welcoming Nottingham foodies to our restaurant.”

Sports fans need not worry about missing out on the action as food and drink will be served alongside BT Sport, with US Sports, Premier League and Champions League on display.
