The global fried chicken giant is opening a new, bigger and improved restaurant on the High Street , replacing the firm's Hall Gate branch which served its last customers earlier this month and has now closed.

The new store is situated in the former Mothercare shop opposite the Danum Hotel.

The branch in Hall Gate, which has been a staple in Doncaster town centre for several decades, closed its doors for the last time on November 13.
