Hen & Chicken
‘BEST FOOD PUBLIC HOUSE 2017’
The Hen & Chicken Inn is a charming and historic Public House located on the busy A31 between Alton and Farnham.
The house was originally built in 1746 as a Chaise House where stagecoaches on their way to London would rest whilst horses were changed, and passengers refreshed. The first known Landlord was a gentleman called Mr. Rawson who saw that the inn became a popular gathering place for travelers and horse dealers. A picture can be found of him by the inglenook fireplace.
With much of the charm and character preserved, the house has since become a popular eatery for local guests and families and passers-by.
