About the Pub

Friendly, welcoming community local with a diverse clientele. The attractive interior of the pub, decorated with old mirrors, pub signs and other breweriana, is complemented by an impressive and recently-enlarged covered garden. Oakham Citra and five ever-changing guest ales are always available, usually including at least one darker beer style. Up to 15 real ciders and perries are also on offer, as well as a selection of unusual bottled foreign beers. Live music is performed early evening on Sundays, and occasionally on other days of the week. Two beer festivals and a 50-strong cider and perry festival are held annually. The Mermaid is a previous winner of South Herts CAMRA's branch pub of the year award and regular winner of its cider pub of the year award. Try the pies!
