Yes, this does count.


Brixton Market, Brixton

Not our normal fare, I’ll grant you, but all the same it meets the criteria and deserves a spot on the blog. Wishbone.. what are we to make of you?

Oh my god! Is that a Fish & Chip shop!

I’m beginning to see why Western Fried Chicken didn’t survive, what with Morley’s and Chicken Cottage (and a KFC for Sundays) on the very same street.

And I was wrong. That’s not a fish & chip shop, it’s just a fish shop. Gotta get your chips from next door.

Schmorley not Morley’s?


Lewisham High Street, Lewisham

Luckily there is still demand in Lewisham, and the Morley’s empire is able to supply. I tip my hat to this familiar site.

Gone but not forgotten…

Oh god. I have no words to describe this. What happened, Western Fried Chicken? Can any one shed light on this? I just don’t understand what could have happened. Supply and demand – is there no longer demand in Lewisham?



YYCN? Pretty yummy.

I often wondered why Yummy Chicken decided to highlight the Y, Y, C and N. I can’t think of any good reason, other than it’s a lovely design flourish. Yum!

Where chicken ends and furniture starts, no one can be quite sure.

Identity Crisis?

Another one I umm-ed and ahh-ed about, but after a quick glance at the window and clientele, it was clear that fried chicken is the focus.

Maybe they just want to stay incognito.

Now you’re talking

Stockwell Road

This is what I like to see: another genuine one-off.

Maybe JJ would like to have a chat sometime.

Guess what?

Stockwell Road

How many are we on now? Think it’s time to give Morley’s HQ a call.
