For the second year on the bounce The Magic Wingdom on Dormer Place in Leamington Spa has won big at Wing Fest, the largest chicken wing showdown in the UK. The Birmingham event took place over the bank holiday weekend and was judged by Michelin Star chef, Paul Foster & Wingmans founder, Ben Ford. Leamington’s Magic Wingdom was voted 1st place by the Judges for its Wild Wing, The Wingdominono, an homage to pizza, complete with Garlic & Herb Dip. It’s Kimchi Buffalo sauce scored 2nd this time in the Best Buffalo category. The People’s Choice Awards scored The Wingdominono a 1st place & The Buffalo a 3rd.
Owners Sam Cornwall-Jones & Frankie Griffiths were elated to come home with the awards for a second time. You can taste these sauces at The Leamington Food & Drink Festival on 9th, 10th September and visit the restaurant Tuesday- Saturday.

We went to Birmingham’s first Wingfest in Digbeth last weekend. The World’s Largest Chicken Wing Festival. The competition brief was to serve 2 types of wing: A Buffalo & a Wild Wing. We took our ‘Classic Buffalo’ with Blue Cheese Sauce, Celery & Chives & ‘Wingdom Come’, Our Signature Gochujang House Sauce with Chive Ranch & Pecorino Cheese.
It was an exceptionally hot weekend and the festival was well attended. I think they said there were 3000 people there on the Saturday alone. We had some lovely compliments from some of the greatest wing slingers & food bloggers in the country and The official judges came round mid afternoon- winners were to be announced at 8.30 on the main stage.
8.30 came and we cleaned up, 1st place for both categories. We were gobsmacked, twice. Then on Sunday we came 2nd in The Peoples Choice Awards for each category – more shock!
We owe a huge thanks to all the staff that worked their little asses off both at home and at the competition. Thanks to all who have supported us over our first wing competition… WE”LL BE BACK!
The Magic Wingdom is a fairly new venture from the people behind The Drawing Board pub & The DB Bottle Shop/Tap Room that opened in 2021. It is an independent chicken wing, burger & Bao restaurant that offers cocktails, craft beers & wines in a not quite fast food environment.
We’re on the hunt for friendly, outgoing, humour filled deep fried bags of professionalism, we want to capture that passion and slap it in some Windom sauce and serve the hell out of it. Word is getting around so we’re recruiting…In a nutshell we are looking for Crew members over 18 years of age. This is a customer facing serving role so you’ll need to be smart, confident and approachable, the rest we can teach.
This is the opportunity to join a relatively new business at the ground floor (basement actually) so if this sounds like your ketchup smeared mouth then give us a wing…actually drop us an email with a copy of your CV and a nattery type cover letter introducing the hell out of yourself.
