Great pub with a good range of well kept beers. The staff were friendly and helpful.

There's a fanastic real fire in the bar area. Would certainly recomend.

Under new management, food looks good, prices a wee bit expensive, beer kept well though. staff seem to be all colonials but are attentive enough. nice decor, outside covered and heated are, will probably return. better than most of the dives in ricky.

I decided to give it a try as it was a pub I had driven past many times . A friend was visiting from overseas so on Spring Bank Holiday I stopped by.The tables were dirty, the bar unkempt and the beer just about acceptable. Staff seemed unaware of basic customer care niceties. Shame because it looked an inviting pub and the menu seemed well balanced and priced.

Will give it one more go and see if my first impressions were justified.or not.

Im not sure i agree about the toilets, they always seem grim to me, also the hygiene rating for the kitchen is only one star out of five on the council website and this might explain it - i think that the crown has slipped a bit here, and the feathers is now the best pub in Ricky!

Best pub in Ricky with a very attractive interior,and sensible two bar arrangement one for the youngsters with large screen sport TV the other for drinkers and diners with nooks and crannies.Range of real ales ,I had the Hare Raiser which was good and was offered a promotion voucher of buy 3 pints get fourth free.Excellent idea.Didnt try food but menu also looked good.Friendly welcome.

Probably the best pub in Ricky. Nice atmosphere and well kept beer.

Shame that I have to always stay on the guest beer, as Greene King Abbot and the perennially insipid "IPA" are the other two options.

The toilets issue has definitely been sorted with a recent refurb following flooding!

Nice interior. Comprehensive wine list (although house wine is uninspiring). Good menu which represents good value for money. I dont particularly find the staff very polite or helpful.

Sorry, fingers not connected to brain — I mean Abbot, not Adnams, of course.

Visited here this afternoon after a recommendation from Millay on the BITE forums. Greene King IPA, Rocking Rudolph, and Adnams (£2.80/pint) available. Also had some very good beef stew with mash and vegetables (£9.90 and worth every penny). Food is served all day.

Favourite pub in the area - would be perfect if it was a bit bigger

Great restaurant with lovely food. Decent choice of beer, has a lot of atmosphere, seems to be busy most nights. A bit smokey in the bar, but the restaurant is non-smoking.

This pub completely meets my requirements, the bitter was superb (even though a little on the expensive side) and pulled for me by a lovely young lady. All the bar staff seemed young and full of energy whilst the pub still keeps its traditional side, attracting young and old of all different types. There seemed to be a lot of shouting going on in the kitchen and i heard a few insults hurled at someone by who i presumed to be the manager but i suppose thats how the food was presented to me so well and tasted so good.
The restaraunt area was tucked neatly away at the end of the pub and looked very classy.
I shall definatley be returning!

best pub in ricky by far. with a traditional pub feel but none of the things you would regularly asociate with an old pub. it has a wide selection of real ales, a wine list boasting over 90 wines and a brilliant daily changing menu. if you want a drink with an atmosphere this is the place. on a friday and saturday it can get a bit busy but if your from around rickmansworth or surrounding areas your bound to find someone you know. the restaurant is a lovely surprise set slightly back from the pub area and the service is delightful. with a selection of nationalities behind the bar, who might i add are all lovely and polite, this is the place to be in rickmansworth.

Excellent atmosphere great bar staff nice guest beer when I went in mid December but... the food was terrible. The Ostrich was rare (I was not given the opportunity to choose how it was cooked). As for the vegtables, they were raw. The pub has a restaurant and when we booked we were put in the bar. Perhaps they should consider there limits before taking bookings that stretch themselves. This was my "second chance" visit in a year as my previous visit resulted in bad food. I think I will just pop in for a drink on my way to a restaurant in future.......

Excellent food, extensive wine list and good selection of ales. Food service can be slow when busy.

Traditional pub with real log fires. Restaurant serving very good food all day, extra cold Guinness, etc etc
