Fully refurbished in October 2019 to a very high spec, this space is on the ground floor to the rear of The Hen & Chicken and benefits from it’s own private access to the courtyard garden. With hard flooring throughout, the main room has high ceilings & lots of natural light. It is totally self contained. Both rooms are fully air conditioned with humidity monitored fans.

NB: From spring to autumn, subject to availability, where a party books a BBQ or Hog roast menu, exclusive use of the rear courtyard garden is available at no extra charge

Daytime events need to be concluded by 5.30pm.

The Chicken Shed is on the ground floor but up 4 steps and so is not suitable for diasbled access. Please note that the main bar opens at 11.30am midweek and at 10am at the weekend, events starting before these times will access via the large rear courtyard gates off Greville Road.


The Chicken Shed has it’s own private bar, included in the hire fee. Down four steps from the main room, it has double door access to the rear courtyard garden. We have a selection of buffet menus available, as well as hog roasts & BBQs. Please note that we do not permit self-catered events.

Private Parties: Sound/DJ facilities

The house sound system has been designed and installed for the specific purpose of creating a superb party sound on a ‘plug & play’ basis. Hosts only need to bring a device with a pre-loaded playlist. We provide a male 3.5mm jack to plug into your device, remember to bring any adaptor that might be required to attach to this jack. Any party providing their own DJ will require their own mixer & decks/source.

There are a number of moving lights, glitter ball and colour washes to enhance the party atmosphere.
