It's a fair slog uphill from St Albans Abbey railway station to the Mermaid. But it's still my favourite pub in the city. Although my opinion is swayed by its excellent range of ciders. The ale range is good, but more limited. Yesterday, ales were Oakham Citra, Front Row Crouch & Hartley's Heroes, Wickwar Cotswold Way, Bateman's Hooker & Beartown Black Bear. Ciders were Farmer Jim's Sweet, Scrumpy Wasp Hibernate, Gwynt y Ddraig Happy Daze & Celtic Warrior, Thatcher's Stan's Big Apple & Stan's Traditional, Barbourne Painted Lady Perry, Broadoak Moonshine, Pheasant Plucker & Spiced Cider, Snails Bank Orchard Dry & Orchard Pig Maverick. A couple of new ones there for me. There were a few St Albans City football fans in there playing darts at one end, with other drinkers at the other side of the bar. A great traditional pub that should be on any pub tour of St Albans.

The new landlords have now been in for three years and the place is as good as it's ever been. Great music on Wednesdays too.

I visited during a beer festival and the place was full of St albans City football fans, who were rowdy but good natured. Excellent selection of craft and Belgian bottled beers as well as ales and good to see some decent lager including Pilsner Urquel available. It's a mixed but friendly crowd in here and I think I might start coming more often.

You'll see from my previous review that this opened under new management a couple of years ago. I'm please to see that the new landlords have just celebrated their second anniversary here and I went along to see the superb "The Way Back" band at their birthday bash.

Well done chaps. Keep up the good work.

Unpretentious traditional pub with emphasis on dynamic and varied selection of ales and ciders. Many activities such as music features on Wednesdays and Bank Holiday Mondays, beer & cider festivals, regular Spanish language night, pub games. Lively throughout the week with loyal clientele.
