First impressions count, most of the time.
The Trip Advisor reviews all in the last few weeks made me a bit suspicious, the location even more so. But then it would serve me right for judging a book by the cover.
Tucked away out of the city centre is the Hen and Chickens. Don't let first impressions fool you, it's a very ordinary looking city centre boozer from the outside. The decor is what you would expect from a traditional pub and is definitely nothing fancy... The menu however is where the fun starts. A great selection of traditional indian starters and mains that are all cooked to order. The small mixed grill to start could have fed a family of four, but it was a great selection of pakoras, tikka, chops and kebabs. Being a bit of a curry fiend, this is honestly one of the best indian meals I've ever eaten and had it not been for this site I would never have enjoyed it!
Don't be put off by the location or the distance from where you may be staying, this is the real Birmingham. I wish the new management lots of luck - it should do great business, just for the food alone!
