A new restaurant specialising in free range chicken has opened for business in King Street.
Gourmet Chicken Company has been created by businessman Harry Patel and serves spicy chicken in a range of options.
The restaurant can seat up to 28 people and plans to offer a delivery service alongside its takeaway options.
Harry, who also runs Square Deal Cafe in Knowl Hill and used to own Harry's Internet Cafe in High Street, has spent about £10,000 on the restaurant, doing much of the work himself.
"People have been very positive," said the 50-year-old, who is a former president of Maidenhead's Chamber of Commerce.
"I have lived in Maidenhead a long time and every time I go out I find a lack of quality in the town centre.
"I think we are offering the best quality."
