I've had a few pints in here recently and the beer has been of a consistently good standard. There is a strong emphasis on food but a distinct and roomy bar area has been retained for those just wanting a drink. Three bitters on offer: Young's best, Brakspear Oxford Gold and a regularly changing guest.

As I have not ventured into this pub for years, I was very pleasantly suprised by the clean, bright decor, attentive and reasonably efficient staff, decent pint of Youngs, and a Sunday roast for just under a tenner. Admittedly overcooked pork but plenty of it and well tasty. Yes it's a chain but that is a better fate for a pub when considering the rather unpleasant, fighty establishment of old.

Tomato soup and half a mediterranean chicken were exemplary in this canalside pub a short walk from Hemel Hempstead station just before a gloomy stretch of the Grand Union. Shambolic beer keeping was exposed though - attempts to provide us with Navigation and Oxford Gold fell on stony ground after my partner in crime nabbed the last pint of Youngs. Theme park decor aside from some nice photos of old Hemel. Serviceable if you are content with the typical tenets of modern Britain.

Having been transformed from a local dive into a lovely canal side pub, M&B must be congratulated.
But as has been noted in previous reviews, with the increase in ambience comes an increase in price.

The emphasis is, perhaps not surprisingly, on food. And although they now charge something close to restaurant prices the food still has a stingy pub feel about it.
Take the Sunday roast for example. It looks great, the veggies are great, but two thin slices of meat leaves you feeling a bit empty.

The beer is good and they do rotate their ales. The venue is clean and has a handy car sized car park, but a downside is that staff tend too focus on food service so at times you can expect to stand at the beer for several minutes before being serviced.

Because M&B have the Harvester just 100 meters away they are have cleverly managed to catch both ends of the market.

My wife and i spent a day in London and had about five rounds of drinks through the day. we called in at the Fishery on our way home and decided to have one more drink to break the journey home. it was the dearest round i have ever bought.
I had a pint of lager and my wife had 175ml Chardonay total �9.20
I asked how much for each drink and was told �4.10 and �5.10
the pub is in a nice location by the canal and close to the rail station but it does not justify charging such high prices.
the owner of this pub chain is Mitchells & Butler, who also own Harvester among others.
you can get a 175ml glass of chardonay for �2.40 at the Harvester?
who have a pub right next to the railway station.
how can anyone afford almost �10 a round?
I will not return until i hear that their pricing policy has changed
I suggest people vote with their feet and see how quick they see the error of their ways.
