Paid a return visit to the Farmers Boy after trying the excellent Beer Shop just opposite, which wasn't there the last time I visited St Albans. Whilst the Beer Shop is not listed on here, it's well worth a visit and you can drink any of their bottles or draught ales on the premises. The Farmers Boy was much busier than my last visit in 2010. It was pretty much standing room only, with patrons watching the Six Nations England game on a TV in the corner. Service was pretty laboured. The regular ales are Robinson's Trooper, Bath Gem & Adnams Mosaice. Two guests were Oakham Dragon & Arbor Some Kind of Wise Guy. Unfortunately there were no dark beers and no real cider. Food is served from an open kitchen to the rear of the bar. Too busy to enjoy and the drinks range could be better.

Like this place - basic but comfy and decent beer from Oakham etc. Unfortunately their own beers were not available on my visit. Did't try the food but it looked pretty decent.

Decided to drop off in here after having visited 8 other pubs in the town on the way back to the station and am glad we did. It has more of an alternative feel (Free copies of NME were available to read) than many of its rivals and we loved the olde worlde map wallpaper. A pint of Verulam got a mixed response (unsurprisingly at a mere 2.8%) but Oakham's Scarlet Macaw was superb.

Really worth a visit .Just had a make over giving it a really cosy atmosphere,no more hard seats as have all been covered with a comfy seat cushion .
The real ales are very popular special their own brewed on the premises ,never last more then a couple of days
Food is tasty alot homemade and reasonable priced .
Friendly staff

I usually have to search for a beer here.
Selection often dominated by Oakham which is OK if you like your hop forward citrus ones.
Do ask about the bottled beers available
