A bit out of the way, but worth a visit if you are near Hatfield and the A1. It is only 1/2 mile from the A1, but could be in deepest Hertfordshire for all the quiet. This was a " discovery" and I will have to give it a few more goes. Beers, as has been said, are Greene King and St. Austell. A friendly place.

Nice pub in a great location. The food is quite good and the portions are big. It would be a great place to visit if it wasn't for the rude and very unfriendly landlord and landlady.
The pub is advertised as dog friendly but they are not very welcome and if you have children with you it gets even worse. The landlord was outright rude and started to argue with his customers in front of the whole pub, staff and all could hear it. It was very embarrassing....for him. Never met such an arrogant person ever.
I will not go back until there is new management. Shame.

Nice pint of Tribute and my missus liked her wine. Nice beer garden amongst the fields. Looked busy for lunchtime trade although we didn't try anything.
Handy for bike riders too, being just off the Alban Way.

Another nice Hertfordshire pub in rural surroundings, that unfortunately lets itself down with its bog standard ale selection. Greene King IPA & Abbot, St Austell Tribute & Sharps Doom Bar was the selection. As stated previously, the landlord seemed quite friendly. A nice pub that could be so much better.

Yep have to agree a really lovely pub that looks like pubs did years ago before the chains and the food brigade moved in !! Very warm and convivial atmosphere with an interior that wouldn't look out of place in a dickens novel !

Having mentioned the food - our lunch was fabulous. price about right wouldn't say cheap, and good portions.

I had a couple of pints of Tribute which was absolutely spot on - could have drunk it all day ! One of the best pints I've had for a very long time !

Only thing that stops me awarding top marks is the rather miserable woman who 'greeted' us behind the bar - a smile would have been nice or maybe just a little less surliness. However landlord made up for it.

Nice pub - will go back !
