We went tonight after a lovely walk on Clent Hills. Weather was lovely so we thought we would stop here as i have been here years ago. We were not extremely hungry but the menu looked nice even though the prices were expensive ( as expected in a french bistro in the countryside). Mussels in a white wine and shallots... More

Have eaten here previously using the lunch time menu; reasonable food, overall good value. Had not eaten in the restaurant for 2+ years after an awful experience! but was prepared to give it another chance. Bit foolish really, as if anything the food is far worse. Starters were okay; portion size adequate, and value for money for what you got.... More

Friends took us there last weekend for a meal. Excellent menu and seasonal. Mussels in cream a big winner on our table. Just needed a bit more bread to mop up the gravel which was duly served. We all had a good starter and main and the price was reasonable. Good chatty atmosphere and service and timing were spot on.

We arrived here without booking one Saturday evening around 9pm and were very happy to be shown to a table. Drinks were brought quickly, as was complimentary fresh, warm bread, oils and butter - delicious. There was a lot of choice on the menu, even for us vegetarians and a specials menu complemented this. Lots of choice of accompaniments; chips,... More

We booked the French hen for my sisters birthday! We rarely get to dine out without the children so it was special. Mom & dad being there too made it even nicer. (They are our usual babysitters) We arrived alittle late, 10 mins or so but this wasn't a problem we purchased a drink at the bar and then were... More

Went with girl friends for a birthday treat. It was a Thursday night and a few drinks we ordered were out of stock (spirits not beers). Reading menu I anticipated some lush mouthwatering food. I always think if I am chomping at the bit to go back it's somewhere I'd recommend to others however all I can say is average.

This pub was recommended to us for overnight accommodation and good food, so as we were in the area we decided to book a double room (we being my husband & me) for the night and have a bite to eat at the pub. Whilst the food was ok, we found it to be overpriced for what it was. My... More

We reserved a table for lunchtime and were asked to arrive early. Despite the inclement weather, a few of us decided to walk there. Cold and wet, we arrived at the French Hen to be told that they were not open yet, despite the fact that the doors were open! They suggested that we wait outside. Instead, we decided to... More

I have eaten at the French Hen on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the food. I have never had a bad meal here. Lamb is always wonderful. The atmosphere is as always very relaxed with friendly staff.

Having eaten here on many occasions and really enjoyed the food Valentines was a real let down. The food on offer was very poor, the menu poorly thought through and it was designed purely to make money. To offer a pulled pork burger, herb chicken or a Brie Tart (akin to a slice of pizza) was proof that the food... More
