this pub isn't the best in hemel hempstead by any means, however i think a few people are being abit unfair, for a start its not full of skinheads and pikeys, sure there are a few 'undisirables' but thats in every pub throughout the u.k., this pub is fantastic if you want to see live music in hemel hempstead as there arn't that many pubs in hemel that cater ffor this nee, the oddfellows in apsley is good but not very central to town, so this pub in my books is better for that, especially if your lucky to be there on a night 'john knowles' is playing, theres 2 of them so i dont know why the just call them selves 'john knowles' but hey who am i to judge, they are very, very good excellent selection of songs and a great lead guitar player not to mention the singing by both which is outstanding, the pub has an excellent selection of beers and theres a couple of ale's there (on and off) but overall very good, excellent also for sports which as many other comments will back me up on due to the what seem like hundreds of screens throughout, landlord seems nice, bar staff are good, sometimes slow sometimes bang on but overall no complaints. i would recomend this pub to anyone who wants a good drink and a late one at that as on a 'john knowles night' seems to stay open untill the 1am mark, sometimes abit rowdy but hey what pub isn't, overall a good night out.

This pub is hole, really small and stinks of smoke all the time, beer used to always be pretty good though and his a big screen for the sport, dosen't serve food and is mainly full of old irish men.

Hmm. I think the landlord's advertisement below could not be further from the mark. Scary and threatening mix of chavs and travellers. Filthy with poor selection of ill kept beer. Horrible.

Volatile atmosphere on weekends. Heady mixture of old Irish people enjoying the music and local disgruntled skinheads. Avoid on their St George's Day celebrations.

A top pub, this. Very friendly and efficient staff, always a plus. No blind spots for the footy, as there is a telly in nearly every nook and cranny, plus a large screen for the main game. I've been in there when there's been 2 games showing at the same time......and I wasn't charged double !!
Also there is often a band and karaoke.
A good 'local' in every sense of the word.
Right up my street.

Great pub if you like live music with all ages and tastes catered for every friday and saturday night, when there is a late license in place until midnight, and even karaoke every other sunday night. Also live sporting events are broadcast with this pub having both SKY TV and setanta for the Irish games. There is a fantastic atmosphere whenever live games are on and you will never miss a game due to the wide screen TV'S and big screen around the pub. There is even premiership plus which is a rarity in Hemel Hempstead! This pub also boasts of its great bar staff and landlord and its truely exceptional variety of drinks and the quality of its beers. It is an over 21's bar and a you will always be guaranteed a warm and inviting welcome. Not to be missed!!!
