Large and comfortable McMullens pub with an emphasis on food. Recently refurbished. There were 5 McMullens real ales on handpump. Nice barmaid. Just a little soul-less.

does anyone know if this was the pub KEITH MOON had a fight a few years ago where his driver was killed?

This is a Large Mcmullen pub with their standard ale range available alongside a standard draught selection. Like many Mcmullen pubs I found this place to be a little too food orientated as the function room which doubles up as the Sunday Carvery room would suggest.

There is a decent beer garden which had a bouncy castle for the kids and there is plenty of parking, just remember to get the code to exit the car park.

I found it a little sterile in here, but my visit was mid week and I would imagine that it livens up on Friday and Saturday nights as a disco was advertised for both.

I’m not a great fan and I wouldn’t make plans to return.

A pleasant, clean ambience and many people seemed to be enjoying the food. A very good pub if you like McMullens. But unless you do, don't go there for the beer.

Incredibly slow service, the food is nice when you get it though. Staff have been known to be quite rude and offish, although usually ok on a lunchtime. The menu is quite good though, although changing the amazing chocolate orange pudding into just an orange pudding was a bad move in my opinion :)

Good food, decent beer and very friendly service from staff. By far the best pub in Hatfield. Rating compared to others shown here is ludicrously low.

I thought that manager guy was ok. Didn't like the Kiwi bar man. Pub is the best in Hatfield --which isn't saying much.

New management have real attitude ... bet we wish we could all be as wonderful as them ... the short one with the beard must have size issues.

Been completely refurbished and been reopened for about a month. Really gone to town on the menu which is a huge improvement.

very friendly bar staff a shame that mcmullens rarely allow guest ales ...they have a seasonal (bout 2 monthly) but more often than not its just a mcmullens seasonal .... a big shame since its a nice pub
