Press Release: Wednesday 4th January

Dear C&B Patrons.

Today we are excited to bring you news that we have acquired a fantastic site in Christchurch for Chicken & Blues’ 3rd location in BCP.

Over the years, many hundreds of you have requested that we take Mama’s Home Cookin’ to Christchurch, and we have therefore been on the lookout for the right opportunity. After a few deals fell through last year, we must admit we started to feel that it wasn’t meant to be!

However… we stayed patient, and in October we were offered the brilliant James and White restaurant, just a stone’s throw from the Priory and Quay, right in the heart of what is a beautiful area. We feel fortunate to have found the perfect spot for C&B, and look forward to meeting many old and new faces when we open the doors some time in February.

With the acquisition of James and White Group, we have also taken ownership of James and White restaurant in Boscombe Spa, formerly Reef Encounter. This cool beachside location will become the second home to our café bar concept, Flamingo. Some of you may have heard of it, and we know a few of you have checked it out! Learn more about Flamingo Café Bar here >

As always, we remain appreciative of your support, and will continue to work hard to refine and improve services to you this year.

Our best,

Josh & Steve

Chicken & Blues
