Hen and Chicken reviews

By Martin S.

What a jolly nice pub, a few friends took us here when we were visiting and had a wonderful meal. Hats off to the chef!

RE: NossyHi, My name is Sarah and I am the Deputy General Manager here at The Hen & Chicken. We have just seen your review regarding your night with us in December. We have taken on board your comments regarding the ability to cater to your gluten free request and agree whole heartedly. We take customer satisfaction very seriously here at the Hen and have addressed the decision making process used on the night in question, and for in the future. We would love to invite the friends of yours who missed out on having a meal at the Hen & Chicken back for an evening on us. We would like to offer a meal for 2 and two tickets to a comedy show as a gesture of good will. I do hope this would in some way go to apologies for the way the situation was handled on the night.To discuss this further do not hesitate to contact me directly on 0117 966 3143.Thank you again for bringing this to our attentionSarah LawranceDeputy General MangerThe Hen & Chicken

Had 8 tickets booked for the ComedyBox on a Friday evening a couple of weeks ago and decided to have a few drinks and a bite to eat downstairs beforehand. When we went to order our food at the bar we were told that despite no sign or mention on the menu they were only serving pizzas because a number of large Christmas parties were in that night. As one of our group is gluten intolerant we asked whether they could accommodate this. We were flatly refused and two of our party had to go and eat elsewhere. It is a real shame that a pub that advertises itself as having an extensive menu and that evening was serving pizzas with side salads and gluten free Christmas meals cannot be flexible enough to accommodate such dietary requirements. That said, for those of us that could eat them the pizzas were delicious and ComedyBox as brilliant as ever.

For what this place is, i.e. local bar come restaurant/pizzeria I think it's excellent. It's great value for money and the pizza's are for me the best available in Bedminster/Southville. Service is always with a smile and there is a great selection behind the bar. The Comedy box has always been a draw but even more so now that downstairs is so nice. For me the Hen and Chicken is a great place for a pre-show drink or a post work pizza.

I love the Hen & Chicken! The food is always good and delivered with a smile! More than I can say for most places on North Street. My husband drinks the real ale which he always comments in good, with a changing guest ale. Its nice in the daytime to sit and relax with a coffee and my laptop, yet diverse enough that its also good on a Saturday night when its full of people and the DJ plays all my favourites. The staff are friendly and helpful and unfazed by busy nights. I havent been to the Comedy Club upstairs but plan to as there seems to be some good acts coming up this winter.

Better than it was certainly and they serve food later than most of the joints of North Street.

The food is patchy as is the atmosphere. I've had a pretty good pizza and a bad one. The bad one was dreadful; dry crayfish, sparsly flavoured with Cherry tomatoes and sheez.

they cooked the Rocket? Roast Rocket! Much like the Tobacco the acoustics make it difficult to hear anyone, anything and so to help us all out they wack up the sounds to drown out the sounds.

No sense, and makes for an uncomfortable time whatever you're up to. Tackling screaming kids, drinking, eating etc. They need to get some consistency with the food.

The Porch boasts some hot chef from Michelin establishments but if he were then it wouldn’t be this patchy.

Still its not the coked up builder bar it used to be, and the one The Spotted Cow down the road currently is.

Prefered the old Hen and Chicken. Ok, I know it wasn't perfect but it felt like a proper pub - cheap booze, jukebox, big screen for football, friendly staff who knew your name and what you drank. This new Hen and Chicken is a wine bar for all those yuppies, students and non locals of Ashton/Bedminster.
