NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever as they recover following the pandemic.

Please be aware that venues may choose to keep some measures in place for the safety of customers and staff, and that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting updates on the pub.


We now have a schedule of works for our flood damage, with the carpet being fitted on the 9th April! Fingers crossed that it all goes to plan...

As a result, we are happy to start taking bookings OUTSIDE ONLY from lunchtime on Friday 16th April. Wahoo!!

We will then revert to the following opening hours:

Wednesday - Saturday 12-3pm and 6-11pm
Sunday - 12-3pm

We will put the marquee back up, but please note that there will be NO heating in our outside dining space. Please come dressed for April weather - hopefully it'll be kind.

The rule of six or two households will apply.

During this period, we will continue to offer takeaway meals and will also be able to add a real ale takeaway option for those who would prefer to enjoy Jerome's food in the comfort of their own homes.

Reopening: 2021-04-16

About the Pub

This charming 16th-century coaching house on the edge of the hamlet of Caulcott, is warm and cosy with a welcoming open fire in the winter. In addition to the ever present Black Sheep Best Bitter, this genuine free house offers three guest ales often from Church End (including Champion Beer of Britain 2017 Goats Milk), Goff's, Tring, and Vale.

The French landlord and chef serves excellent food based on local fresh seasonal produce, booking is recommended, especially Thursday steak night, Sunday lunch and themed French evenings, (no food served Sunday evening). The Bastille Day beer festival weekend is not to be missed.

No dogs are permitted inside. The good-sized garden is popular in summer. Car parking is available nearby.
