|Agree with the previous review, the beer quality is a major problem, more often than not cloudy and sour. A shame because I really like the pub and the food is good. Would frequent more often if the ales were proper in condition.|

|Beer quality has been a problem here in recent weeks - by that I mean cellarmanship. Often the beer has been a little flat and sour slightly vinegary and I've sampled a couple before finding one that is drinkable.|
A great shame as the beers they have are quite good. I don't agree about the prices though its nearly a pound a pint cheaper at the Three Hammers who generally keep their beer better.

|I went here last night (Tuesday).; they had 3 real ales on.|
Sharpes Doombar, Breakspears Oxford Gold, and a Harviestoun Hoppy IPA
They were all in good condition especially the IPA.
A nice change from the flat dross left over from the weekend served at most pubs.
I was pleasantly surprised. I do know what previous reviewers mean about the middle class "tweeness" of the place but I can live with that. Prices were pretty well St Albans average.
I have eaten here before and it was OK but overpriced - but that was some time ago now.

|I have been to this pub 3 times in the last 2 weeks and there has never been any soap in the men's toilet.|
If they do not care about sanitation in the areas that their customers see it makes you wonder about the sanitation in the areas that their customers do not get to see i.e. the kitchen.
And if the kitchen and bar staff have to use the same toilet - where do they wash their hands?
Needless to say - I have not eaten there and I won't be going back.

|I agree regarding the smell of the pub so clearly an issue but also a very good food if you ignore it. Weird cobbled together decor and furnishings. Great way they have done the beer garden to keep it as quiet as possible from the main road. Food is pub grub with a twist. Bit pricey but worth it for me. Beer is good - 2 ales on tap that were not 'usuals'. If you want to start a crawl up the hill, start here.|
