About the Pub

The seventh tap room to be opened by Hemel Hempstead's ambitious and growing brewery Mad Squirrel, this former restaurant and bakery in the shadow of St Albans Cathedral has been converted into a venue with an unashamedly modern atmosphere but a reassuringly traditional welcome. Split over two levels with access from Heritage Close or Waxhouse Gate, the main action is downstairs where the bar boasts an array of beers across a range of styles. Three cask ales and a dozen or more keg offerings showcase Mad Squirrel's full standard and seasonal range plus guest beers mainly from smaller craft brewers. All beers are available in third or two-third measures as well as pints or half-pints and there are cans and bottles available to take away. While some of the stronger craft beers command prices that may seem high to the average pubgoer, other lower ABV and cask ales are priced reasonably for the city centre. Food is available in the form of pizzas.
