Visited the Flag yesterday morning, whilst changing trains at the adjacent Watford Junction. It's quite an imposing building with a few steps leading up to the door. I could see how the set-up would be good for live music. But at breakfast time, it wasn't particularly atmospheric. It is mainly open-plan with some raised areas. St Austell Tribute was accompanied by Sharp's Doom Bar & Firebird Parody. I had the Parody and benefitted from a CAMRA discount. Whilst pale ales aren't normally my thing, this was a nice beer. I may return next time I'm at the station. But I wouldn't make a special visit.

Was in here Saturday for a gig.Quality ales and quick service.The Timothy Taylor Dark mild was a beautiful pint,sadly they ran out after my 2nd.
The bands were good,really good and the two DJs were superb, i would travel to see these two.Shame the taller one had a shirt on that looked like his Mum had bought it...

A wannabe Wetherspoons with absolutely piss poor staff

Popped in after Watford v Norwich after visiting The Horns. Good selection of real ales and the one i had was well kept. Pity the pub facilities section doesn't promote its real ale as a feature. Yes it is a large venue but i thought it should have a higher rating than it does on this site. Watford is not exactly a real ale mecca and this pub should be recognised for providing a choice to those nearby. I will return if we aren't relegated !

Was in here Satuirday 22nd Feb to see Argy bargy a local folkie type band that specialise in clog dancing and morris men type routines.Great venue and pub as it goes.Started off with a pint of Fullers "steel" i think it was called, not really my thing.Made in honour of sheffield by the west London brewery, well you northerners are welcome to it.The IPA was superb though.
As i said, a good pub whether you are in here for beer or a gig.
Well kept beer and a decent range
Most of which appeared to have been sample by some drunken Ulsterman called Mcquillan or something..
A great place :)
