Proudly situated in this historic Hertfordshire market town, we extend a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike, offering classic pub food and a lively and friendly atmosphere. We invite you not only to enjoy our homely rustic interiors and relax on a comfy sofa by the cosy fire on a cold day but to enjoy our outdoor seating on sunny days too.

So, whether you fancy unwinding after a dog walk or simply seeking out a unique place for a pint with your pet, rest assured we welcome you warmly.*

Our pub doesn’t entertain only with its charismatic character but also plays host to an eclectic array of entertainment options. From talented live musicians to the hottest DJs spinning some tunes, we have it all. Fancy a themed night? You’re in luck – we’re not your average pub.
