A good place to eat and drink with friends, sensible prices, good service (French really?) but then you see why it is French biased, the menu is limited ( some times a good sign?) the portion size average to poor ( I'm not greedy honest) just like to feel well fed.

Unpretentious place with simple food served in good clean conditions...friendly if not particularly efficient waitress whose attitude and willingness overcame any definciencies.

You will not go to the French Hen for the number of vegetarian options, but you can rest assured that they will be tasty. There were 2 starters and 3 main courses which were veggie. My partner had the 'Tomate cerise et oignon rouge Tarte (V)', as a starter, which tasted nice, but I was expecting this to be on... More

Although local to the French Hen we have not been for sometime but I must say we could not fault our lunch and it was as good as any around. Prices of drinks were what you would expect a little on the high side perhaps, the two freshly baked baguettes, prawn and marie rose sauce and melted brie and bacon... More

Limited mid week menu with no species so easy to exhaust it. Ordered a steal and it was definitely on the turn. The staff were great and refunded us but little choice left on the menu for future visits They won't do the lunchtime menu on evenings which is a shame as this place is convenient for us. Staff are... More

No we have not been invaded by the French, but we do have a real taste of France here in Stourbridge. The atmosphere is Gallic, the food authentic and the price will not have you tearing your hair out. It is really a pleasant, well run and intimate place to eat. The menu is extremely varied and something is always... More

Came here for a birthday celebration on July 26 2014. The food was absolutely amazing, served in a rustic style French bistro, you could almost think you were in France! Very generous portions, and extremely well priced, you won't be disappointed. We started off with chicken liver pate which was homemade, and a very generous portion. The main of pork... More

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.
