Visited on a girls night out. Saw good reviews on TripAdvisor. Restaurant was quiet. Menu was OK value with a selection of chicken based dishes. We ordered Prosecco & they had to go & buy some!
The chicken burgers were tasty and the chips delicious!

Delicious food, very generous portions, quiet as we were on the early shift but I imagine it buzzes when full. Will definitely return. Only other comment - suggest tables are slightly repositioned so the person seated nearest the wall is not within close proximity of decorative wooden crates on wall (ouch!)

Love the Henhouse, mostly because the staff are excellent, friendly, and happy to chat a little. The food is great and in ample portions - I never leave hungry! There's a good selection of drinks also.
On Fridays they have a musician in - and it's an open slot for musicians to apply. It's even paid. The music is not so loud it spoils conversation, and it's great to see restaurants trying things like this, which supports the artist too.
Their burgers are also better than any of the 'gormet' offerings elsewhere in town. Highly recommend.

My sister and I were visiting Exeter for the day and looked online for restaurant ideas. Martin is a friendly and very welcoming host, who spent time advising us on dishes we asked about. The ambience was very relaxed and comfortable and we loved the original Hen House themed decor. We decided to try the Pieroggi (dumplings) which were new to us, and they were delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Tasty combinations with a Polish twist - clean plates at the end.

It’s a breath of fresh air to find somewhere independent and different to eat . It’s quirky, friendly with an original menu . The music was just right too - still able to hear conversation.Great price and excellent service , go !

Lovely atmosphere and great service. Menu was a little limited for vegetarians and very limited for vegan. Food was fresh and well presented, tasted amazing. Seating was a slightly uncomfortable but the hen cushions were a great addition. Would go back and dine again with friends.

Stumbled across this restaurant as it is fairly new and I didn't know it was there.
It was an amazing place to eat and had a great atmosphere, we had a wonderful evening.
Would highly recommend the food and service!
