“Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

We managed to get in here as a last minute booking on Mothers Day, place was very busy, but it didn't spoil the atmosphere. Extremely good quality fresh food at reasonable price. Would definately go back

My family and I recently met some friends here while visiting the area. This place was recommended to us and we can see why! The atmosphere is lovely and relaxing and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us and were very efficient. We had our kids with us and sometimes find it hard to get decent food for them, but the quality and choice for them was excellent. Portions sizes are big and we found it really good value for money. Meal tasted delicious! Will return next time we are in the area!

Visited the French Hen on Valentine’s Day when a special menu was offered with plenty of choice.
Despite being a very busy evening, the service was excellent and my starter of pigeon breast on a bed of bacon and black pudding with a rocket salad and balsamic vinegar went down very nicely. This was followed by Duck in a red wine and plum jus which was very tasty indeed.
My wife also thoroughly enjoyed her meal which was very reasonably priced.

We visited late on a Saturday afternoon with our two young children. We were served promptly and courteously throughout and enjoyed it all as a whole. My liver & bacon was great, while the wife enjoyed her steak. I was impressed by my son's proper beef burger (clearly not out of a freezer) and the batter on my daughter's fish was light and crispy.

Both the wife and I said that we'd want to go back again when we're in the area next.

More importantly, they do keep a nice drop of Enville Ale.

Called in on the way back from the cinema because it has a good reputation for Sunday lunch. That may be- but sadly not on a Friday night! The mushroom starter was superb but it quickly went downhill when what can only be described as "elderly" mains were brought out. The chicken and the duck had definitely been reheated; the veg tasted literally of nothing and the carrots and greens were all the same shade of pale; and the jus with my duck was revolting- like gravy granules mixed with grenadine. The staff (school kids) weren't in the least bit bothered. Will never go back to eat there.

I visited the French Hen for lunch yesterday, with two other friends and our three 6 month old babies.
The staff were fantastic - bent over backwards to make things as easy for us with our buggies and babies as possible. They spent time speaking to the children - I know it was a mid-week lunch time and they weren't crowded out, but you don't get that sort of welcome in many places. The food was great as well!
The only disadvantage I can see is that the toilet is upstairs. There are no baby changing facilities, but when my friend needed to change her daughter she was taken somewhere suitable.
I will definitely be going back, and would recommend the French Hen to anyone.

Waited over 1 hr for starter, another hour for main course, lamb shank was fatty and inedible, carrots bordering on raw, not a pleasant experience. A totally disappointing birthday meal. Will not be returning. Beware booking on a Saturday night, the function room comes before private diners.
