About the Pub

Superb town free house offering a friendly welcome. Six real ales, usually including a dark beer of some distinction, come from brewers large and small across Britain. There is a fine choice of Belgian bottle-conditioned beers. Beer festivals are held over the spring bank holiday and in October. No tv or music here, just good old fashioned conversation. Home-made pies are available. South Herts Branch Pub of the Year in 2018.
