About the Pub

Timbered Free House dating from 1642 having a country feel. Situated in one of Hertford's most attractive streets, it is near the start of the Cole Green Way. Handy on match days for Hertford Town Football Club supporters and one of the only pubs in Britain with a rugby team affiliated to RFU. Large well kept garden with separate childrens' area and suitable for dogs on leads. Interesting menu - the pub now has its own bakery. CAMRA members enjoy a discount on real ales. Children welcome until 8pm. The pub is the recipient of the Bronze award in CAMRA`s local Pub of the Year competition for 2018. An extension at the rear was added in 2019.
