Pub goes viral with gushing gravy fountain alongside mountain of fried chicken

A pub is sending fried chicken fans into meltdown by launching a giant gravy fountain with a monster portion of 24 chicken tenders to dip into it. The Leopard, in Nantwich, Cheshire, has gone viral after revealing they will serve a litre of home-made gravy in a 15-inch tall fountain for hungry punters to dip fried chicken and fries into.

Videos of the Fried Chicken Fountain show curtains of the condiment flowing from the heated spring, while a diner smothers the boozer's 'Leopard Fried Chicken' in it. Drooling fried chicken fans raved about the 'heavenly' five-person portion meal containing between 20 and 30 chicken tenders and gravy, which will be sold for £30.

A snap of the heated fountain has gone viral on Facebook, racking up more than 1,700 likes, shares and comments. One thrilled bride-to-be told a pal she'd 'found her wedding cake', while one bloke claimed the meal was 'absolute heaven'.

And it's not just Brits who're desperate to try it out, with one Canadian claiming it's 'worth a plane trip to the UK' to try the delicacy. Gary Evans, executive chef at The Leopard, said: "We always try new things and to make things a little bit fun.

"I'm not a massive sweet guy, I'm more of a savoury person. Then this just popped into my head and I thought 'let's give it a go and see what happens' and it worked. It's a meal for four-five to share. There'll be between 20 and 30 chicken tenders on there, we're still working it out.

"The fountain brings an element of the theatrical to the everyday. It's put a grin on people's faces, it's just a bit of fun."

The Fried Chicken Fountain will be released in the coming weeks, punters will need to pre-order to ensure they can get their mitts on it. Social media users whipped themselves up into a frenzy over the new addition.

One commented: "I've found my wedding 'cake'."

One Canadian fan wrote: "Okay seriously, where's the restaurant… it's worth a plane trip to the UK."

Another commented: "That is my kind of fountain, nevermind all this fruit and chocolate nonsense!"

One commented: "Absolute heaven."

Another wrote: "I would smash this."
