About the Pub

The Hen and Chickens has long been one of the most pleasant and popular of town centre pubs. The smart exterior and colourful floral displays brighten up this end of Deansgate. Inside there is a central horseshoe bar serving both sides of the pub. Although now open plan, the entrance doors lead on the left to the smaller vault with a comfortable raised seating area while the right hand door leads to the lounge where food is available. The cask ales are only partly tied to Punch Taverns list so you can expect some of the beers to be from a range of mainly small breweries. Usually a choice of beer styles are available. Winner of Spring Pub of the Season award 2018.
