We are a local pub in the heart of Southville serving local ales, freshly prepared food & mouth watering wines.The Hen is a fan of real ale & takes pride in pouring a great pint. Our ales tend to be local to the region with the guest ale changing every two weeks. The Chickens are Cask Marque accredited & have so far achieved 100% each year.Our famous stone-baked 12" pizzas are made from organic flour, we create our own dough and pizzas made fresh per order. If you come down & visit us on a Monday you can enjoy 2 of our fantastic pizzas for just £12 (lunch & dinner). Other offers are Burger Wednesdays offering two for £12 and 2-4-1 on cocktails on a Thursday evening
