Excellent, traditional country pub. Good range of beers and all well kept. Landlord and landlady very civilised. The occasional jazz evenings are well worth a visit. No louts.

A community pub on a junction in the country lanes between Stevenage and Luton Airport. ca 4 types of draught beer, well kept and good, if generally conventional, food. Does a good trade from locals (who own the place) as well as townies like me driving into the sticks.

Additional - did not appreciate the cat sitting on bar stools, chairs and then looking for food from punters once it started to be served.

Not been here before but as its won the North Herts beard association award, I thought I'd come and see what the fuss was all about. Had a pint and all was good, there was a selection of 4 or 5 as I recall. Food was stunning! Basic stuff in the main but done to a very high standard - parsnip soup was superb - no pun intended. Real fire was excellent also - always a big plus in my book.
However, how they won the CAMRA award I'll never know (Apart from CAMRA being CAMRA if you get my drift). There were dirty light fittings on the ceiling caked in dust and without bulbs, the bar staff were OK but not up to some standards such as OMF in Stevenage or the Lordship in Benington and the general decor was from 1963 - in reasonably good condition but still from 1963!
Good pub overall but not an award winning one in my view - unless you know people in CAMRA of course, in which case Joe publics view is irrelevant.

Had a lovely shep pie in here last week and a couple of pints of Goats Milk which was perfect even though I was the first in on the day. Lovely village full of the rich, asked a guy if there were any small house in Preston , he said "oh no" Funny Iwent to the Preston the city a couple of weeks ago , the contrast is amazing , wealth and poverty . The garden here is excellent too,and if you like a good ale not to far to the excellent Strathmore Arms which has a differerent sort of charm.
