Nice pub which is essentially a McMullens restaurant. The food looked pretty good to me. The garden on a still June evening was beautiful. Country, IPA and AK were available. My pint of AK was nicely chilled and drinkable, but at £4.05 is on the pricey side.

Oh my word, this is a restaurant disguised as a country pub. Very bland, beer poor, staff good, thought food a little expensive though did not eat. Not a patch on the Plough in Crews Hill.

Having finished a brisk Sunday afternoon country walk at Botany Bay, we decided to drop in here for a drink before catching the 313 back to Enfield. I can only concur with a large number of the previous comments, ie that the pub is pretty bland and sterile. The description of the pub outside ('COUNTRY PUB & DINING') gives the game away. Nevertheless, they had McMullen cask ale and Country Bitter on hand-pump, and the garden was pleasant.

Gann below sums this place up perfectly. Inoffensive but characterless refurbed McMullens pub. Good beer garden though.

I am of an age to remember The Robin Hood as a multi bar country pub with a bit of personality. Yes it was dark and shabby but it had some character for those days when it wasnt good enough to drink in the garden. But that was back then and now is after the Gastro pub designers and architects moved in and ripped all that out.
But for some this will not be a bad thing.
The Robin Hood is now a large one bar pub focussed on food service, with three large areas around a central bar area with virtually all of it set for dining. The dcor is clean, bright and modern but largely sterile and void of any character.
The food menu is reasonable and borders on being a bit pricey but is not outrageous, and has been decent quantity and quality on the couple of times I have tried it
A key positive remains the outside drinking area, with the old concrete terrace now replaced by a decking area underneath two large Jumbrellas, and beyond this the very large garden remains unchanged and unspoilt.
It is a McMullens house and as such usually has well kept McMullen Cask ale and Country Bitters on hand pump. But I imagine they shift more white wine now than they do cask ale.
So if youre after eating and want somewhere decent to take your mum, wife, girlfriend partner where they wont find much to bemoan, then the Robin Hood fits this bill.
But if your after a cosy country pub with a bit of character in which to have an evening beer, then probably best to drive a bit further out into Herts, to the pubs in Northaw for example.
