Had our first visit to Crackbird yesterday evening. Were on our way to a book launch we'd be invited to, and needed to grab a bit to eat. We informed the waiter, who was very good, that the other half has a severe allergy to garlic, he went and checked with the kitchen to find out what she could have. We were informed she could have the goujons she wanted to order. I went for the buttermilk chicken (which, as it turned out, was a bit on the greasy side). After swallowing a bite of her first goujon, herself asked me to taste it, as she reckoned it might have garlic after all. I wasn't sure, so we asked the waiter to check again. He went back to the kitchen, to be told by one of the other chefs that there was garlic in the seasoning powder they use.
Sure enough, within a few minutes, herself had an allergic reaction which will leave her sick for a few days and only able to keep down toast. I had to drive her home, sick as a small hospital, missing the event we were in town for in the first place. Even though the waiter was helpful and apologetic, and didn't charge us for any of the food, there's really no excuse for this kind of lazy indifference to allergies from kitchen staff when it has a direct effect on people's health. I've since heard that a friend experienced the same thing.
Completely unacceptable. Won't ever be back.

Food is great and well priced considering the fill you get. I'd also recommend their other restaurant Skinflint on Crane Lane, lovely pizzas!

Couldn't agree more with 'David R' on this one...
Trying so so hard to be trendy for the sake of it.. Reeks of over effort.
Popped up, popped away, then popped back as a non-pop up.
When I 'popped' in myself for lunch, I had some form of fried chicken roll. 40 minutes later (10 minutes before I was due back in the office) the food arrived. The roll was as solid as a rock and literally uneatable. In fairness, the chicken/mayo/lettuce I extracted with my knife and fork was ok, but didn't exactly eclipse Colonels Sanders secret blend of 11 herbs and spices.
Maybe if they put as much time and effort into the food as they did into expanding their Twitter database it might actually be worth a visit...

My first thought when I saw the menu was "how do you justify charging a fiver for 3 small dips?" Honestly, I don't know what peoples' problem is. I had heard a few people commenting how good it was and so I thought I'd go along to see what it was like. It's basically overpriced KFC. It's tasty, I'll grant them that, but fried chicken is always fairly tasty and THAT'S ALL THEY DO. Service was okay, waiter seemed a bit surly but I suppose that most hipsters usually are. The bill came in a tiny envelope as well, for some bizarre reason, which screamed "are we hip enough yet?" so we crammed the money (far too much for fried chicken, frankly) in the envelope and left. Their slogan should actually be "KFC for tw@s".

I'd heard people describing this place as a glorified KFC, I think that's a bit harsh - it's pricey but the food is tasty! It's also important to have a Twitter account if you go here as it's standard practice to tweet pre and apres eating here!
