About the Pub

Built in 1839 as a tap house to the nearby Gaddesden estate, now a thriving country pub in a popular horse riding and walking area close to the Gade Valley Trail, Chiltern Way and Gaddesden Round. The central bar, with a fine display of handpumps, serves the three main drinking areas and there is a patio to the front and a tranquil garden to the rear. The Great Gaddesden cricket pitch is opposite. Reopened April 2008 after a major refurbishment that has preserved all the old character including the two real fires. As well as the regular Greene King beers there are always guests on the seven handpumps including a 'LocAle' brew. Darts and dominoes played.
