The Tap and Can, a craft beer bar nestled next to Shrewsbury railway station, has announced that it is diversifying and launching a fried chicken and craft beer restaurant.

It will be called Bird and Beer and it will be taking over Chronicle House, which is a chicken breast-throw over the road in Castle Foregate.

Tap and Can's Facebook page announced the "super exciting news". It's a venture put together by Tap and Can entrepreneurs Andrew Hooper and Rachael Jones, along with Tom Cooke who is supplying the recipes.

They told followers: "I'm pretty sure you all know by now that we don't do things by halves, so mid pandemic we had this crazy idea and after a beer - or two - with our good friend Tom Cooke Bird and Beer was born. The rest is history!"

Tap and Can opened in 2019 and is known for its 14 rotating beer lines and more than 100 canned brands.

The town's Business Improvement District also tweeted the news.

"Get your tastebuds at the ready! Popular #Shrewsbury craft beer bar Tap and Can are opening a new restaurant!

Keep your eyes peeled for 'Bird and Beer', a fried chicken and craft beer eatery!
