“hen and chicks abergavenny”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Located right in the centre of Abergavenny, this is a 'must' when visiting the town. The pub itself is pretty basic and probably in need of a makeover, but the atmosphere is great and the staff are always friendly and helpful.There is a bar area serving excellent ale, and 2 dining areas - one right away from the bar and ideal for families. The food is basic good pub food - huge portions and good choice. Especially recommended is Sunday lunch, accompanied by live jazz - a great way to while away a Sunday afternoon!
In the spring/summer there are tables outside the pub, where you can eat and drink and watch the world go by.

“An OK lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A nice atmosphere with OK food and drinks. Staff OK but couldn't get away fast enough when one of our party said he was dissapointed with his meal.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Been here on number of occasions. Food is fairly standard but represents good value for money. Excellent beers and always friendly service. Will happily return.

“Hen and Chickens - Well worth crossing the road for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We go to Abergavenny a few times a year and this includes a visit around Christmas. Saturday's pre-Christmas outing, including an early but long lunch in the 'Chickens', was another memorable occasion. The pub has always been good but is now better than ever in our opinion. The food offering was appetizingly varied and extremely good value. Pub grub yes but excellent. Complemented with a few pints of Brains bitter (or glasses of Pinot for the ladies) a super time was had by all (6 friends) - particularly as the prices are about 20% cheaper than our locals in Magor. And its worth mentioning the staff are always friendly and helpful.

I think we will be paying another visit before the 25th! :-)

“Great pub. Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Have been here several times when in Abergavenny. Unashamed pub grub but good choice and pleasant service. Gets very busy, particularly on market days but service always quick and efficient. Not a cordon bleu restaurant but a good old fashioned honest pub. Good food choice and decent ale!
