Cake is completely free

It is on sale now for £5.

Fresh from a successfully enlarged pop up, soul food trader The Wing Kings has announced its next round of events.

A taste of the Deep South will next be at Sentinel Brewhouse on November 19, with two sittings and a menu featuring chicken and waffles and Snickerdoodle cookies (nothing to do with Snickers.)

There’s also a Thanksgiving special lined up for Thursday November 23.
