Normally when I go to this place I find drunk people making loud noises while I try to eat my 'lunch'. Let down by this place- it is close to us. Recent work on the place is nice, though that doesn't mean you should go there. Avoid this place.

To witness & experience a real live re-enactment from Faulty Towers then the The French Hen, Clent Hills, as a large group is just the place for the performance of a life time! A fabulous day out with friends walking in the lovely Clent Hills was more than dampened by the the fact that the management of the French Hen... More

Food was okay. One waitress was very rude. Had to send 2 steaks back as were cooked not as we asked! Took a while for them to come back out

We recently booked this venue for a large family birthday meal. We had invited family from far and wide who stayed in nearby accommodation. We found the whole experience awful. It quickly became apparent that unless you were a local, your patronage was unimportant, as indeed after standing at the bar for 10 minutes waiting for a member of staff... More

To celebrate our 2 year Anniversary we chose the French Hen as we had heard a few good reviews. Food & drink were absolutely amazing! We both ordered steak as a main & was cooked to perfection. Staff were very helpful & friendly. Will definitely be making this a more regular place to go.

I have heard good reviews from friends that this is a super place with fresh homecooked meals,so a four of us decided to have a Wednesday night treat. We arrived about eight 'o'clock, I'm sure the table had been booked. It was quiet and perhaps only one or two tables were being served with food. I ordered; shoulder of lamb... More

Enjoyed a nice relaxing evening with the wife. Food was average in my opinion and something that I could have cooked myself. When going to a French restaurant you almost expect something special and my beef burgundy was average. That's not to say it was un pleasant but it wasn't amazing. The food was hot and portions are generous but... More

My son asked for a medium rare sirloin it was not pink at all, he sent it back which they were fine with, I chose the tournados rossini the most expensive main, I ordered it medium, it was a lovely piece...
