Bonus point for this place is that the staff were friendly, otherwise it would be only rated 1. Food took ages to come out and when it did, it was very poor in presentation. Cajun chicken was burnt and dry, they had no burgers (situated right next door to a very good butcher) and my curry was awful. Poppadom was... More

Traditional pub just off the main drag through Abergavenny. Now owned & run by Brains. Standard Pub grub to a reasonable standard. Burgers always unctious.

We all had Lasagne for lunch with extra garlic bread and sweet potatoe chips, it was really very good, and there was plenty of it. This is a proper pub, has an outside area where you can eat and/or drink, and I thought value for money was far better than most pub meals. Well done, The Hen and Chickens, oh,... More

Firstly as a pub the Hen & Chicks is great. As a place to eat it is awful, I visited in April 2016 I ordered roast chicken, I could not cut through the meat, I sent it back and was told the chef was not confident enough to cook another piece of chicken, my daughter had the beef which was... More

We stopped for lunch and just ordered 2 sandwiches and 2 drinks. The barmaid didn't have much in the way of customer service going on, but the food was good. Not a very comfortable pub (a few old scatter cushions on wooden benches) but OK for a quick visit.

Nice pub and always a favourite when we are in the area. This time they couldn't supply what we ordered due to a lack of ability. Disappointed but I expect will will try again.
