The Hen & Chicken

The Hen & Chicken

Book the Hen & Chicken for private parties and music events and you're guaranteed a lively atmosphere, excellent service and awesomely tasty food. This trendy venue in the Southville area of Bristol has three spaces for hire, with room for 30-230 people.

The biggest space is the upstairs Studio which has capacity for parties for 230 or buffets for 150. This room is self-contained with its own bar and loos, plus there's air con, a stage, sound desk and a Green Room. Right next to it is the Studio Bar, with room for up to 30 folk for a buffet; it's a lovely space with vintage look flock wallpaper and big oak doors, but note there's no fixed AV facility in this room.

On the ground floor is the Chicken Shed & Bar, a self-contained space at the rear of the building with high ceilings, loads of natural light, air con, a sound and lighting desk, a private bar and access to the courtyard garden. Great for buffets for 90 or sit down dos for 72.

Food comes bespoke for your event – it's American Grill style, so stone baked pizzas, homemade burgers, free range organic 'dogs', waffles and boozy shakes, that kind of thing. Drinks at The Hen and Chicken showcase the best of the Bristol brewing scene with regularly rotating craft beers and real ales.

There are car parks within easy walking distance, and Bedminster train station is also a short walk away. A seriously great space for jollies and informal meetings.
