This is definitely not the place to go to for a Christmas lunch if you are in a group as they obviously can't cope with more than two people at a table. They are also the most unhelpful and unaccommodating restaurant staff I have ever dealt with. The food was okay, nothing to write home about, just okay. The service, or lack of it, was abysmal. One of my group asked for a glass of water. Twice. It never arrived. We had to ask for spoons for the dessert, milk, sugar and spoons for the coffee, and plates for the mince pies! One of my group complained about the taste of a soft drink - he was told that's how it was and was not offered an alternative. The whole place lacked atmosphere and apart from a couple of Christmas trees it all looked tired and totally non-festive. Pity as it's in a beautiful location overlooking the Aldenham Reservoir. It has a huge car park which probably never gets more than half full. I wonder why?

The Fisheries is another example of a modern wood décor McMullens house with more of a focus on the food service. It’s a fairly large pub situated on the Watford Road half way between Elstree and Bushey, with an outside terrace area overlooking the Aldenham Reservoir opposite.
Inside it is a modern décor with a central bar and the left side being more the traditional pub area with comfortable but limited sofas and chairs , and then the entire right hand side is a light wood panelled eating area. This restaurant section is themed with old style fish pictures to at least give it a bit of character.
We did choose to eat here and found the food to be very good and the service to be attentive The menu is slightly more towards Gastro than Toby Inn but not enough to be pretentious and overpriced.
The beer in not particularly inspiring being the usual McMullens fare but couldn’t complain about my pint of AK which was in good condition.
But the outside terrace is one of this pubs main positives , as it makes the most of its location and I can think of a lot worse places to sit and have a pint, than on the outside benches watching the dingy sailors on the reservoir opposite.

Don't tell the wife (or husband for that matter) but this is an ideal place to take the ageing Mother-in-law in preperation for the morgue. It's dull, dreary and lacking in any sort of atmosphere.

Located in Elstree (on the whole a wealthy place) it appears the owners are seeking to attract the type of clientele who have very little to say, let alone indulge in any sort of banter. It is nothing more than a boring restaurant with a smidgeon of pub about it.

Food is average (at best), beer equally so but the high prices hardly reflect this. It has a certain 'feel' about it, one which suggests the owner/landlord is seeking one last stab at making it work before it has to close. It's a real shame as it's the only place left in a village which once boasted four pubs. In my opinion it has gone completely in the wrong direction. Bring back the pub I say, with good beer, great atmosphere and an enjoyable place to be....Sadly, for this place, those times appear to be long gone....Avoid.

Another example of a modern wood décor McMullens house with more of a focus on food .No its certainly not at ‘typical friendly local’ because its not particularly local to anyone being stuck on the middle of the Watford Road half way between Elstree and Bushey.
So it has to try and attract people, which it does by being a clean, comfortable place with a decent food menu and generally good service. And by making the most of its location and I can think of a lot worse places to sit and have a pint, than the outside benches overlooking the Aldenham Reservoir.
