KFC opens pub where you can eat KFC and drink a pint – but there’s a catch

CHICKEN and beer lovers can combine both passions after KFC opened its first ever pub – but there’s a major catch.

The Colonel’s Arms, in Fulham Palace Road, Hammersmith, London, started welcoming in guests last Friday, November 25.

Footie legend Jimmy Bullard was on hand to open the new pub.

But anyone keen to head there has just days left to do so – it will be serving its last drinks and food on December 1.

Anyone who does manage to make it down there on time will be able to get their hands on KFC’s famous chicken, free gravy and a pint.

A number of screens will be playing World Cup men’s football games as well.

Jimmy said: “It’s class when the three things I love – football, fried chicken and the pub – come together!

“What a blinder to be asked by the absolute legends at KFC to be the official landlord for KFC Delivery’s first ever pub, The Colonel’s Arms!”

It comes after fears were raised Brits could face food shortages after 400 workers, including some from KFC, announced strike action.

The employees who work delivering food to KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Wagamama are set to strike over a real terms pay cut.

They are members of the GMB Union working at Best Food Logistics, which delivers food to big fast-food chains.

A majority of 76% of those who voted were in favour of industrial action, according to GMB.

GMB claims the action will lead to shortages at these restaurants over Christmas.

It comes as last month workers rejected a 6% pay offer, which was below the then rate of inflation which was 9.9%.

The rate of inflation currently stands at 11.1%.

How can I save money at KFC?

If you’re looking to save money next time you’re at KFC, we’ve got some tips.

You could download its free rewards app, called the Colonel’s Club.

You can get freebies through the loyalty scheme, if you meet certain criteria.

For example, you can get £5 off your order if you collect eleven Colonel Club stamps.

But you’ll have to spend at least £33 first before collecting the stamps.

All you need to do is show your stamps to the cashier at a branch, and you can tuck into your £5 free food.

Plus, students can get a free original recipe snack box if they spent £3 or more in one transaction.
