Good real ale pub on a street corner in the heart of Hatfield's picturesque Old Town, very close to the station. Eclectic mix of locals, several alcoves and small rooms lead off the bar. Three real ales on tap when we visited, good craic with the locals, darts league ongoing in another room. Only disappointment was that the toilets were fairly unsanitary, lock on the gents cubicle didn't work, fire extinguisher left inside to prop the door shut!

Visited during lunch time so apart from a few locals it was a small tourist invasion. Lovely looking place, a clear mixture of a couple of buildings knocked into one. Old beams and wooden floors, really liked the tables with huge metal bolts sticking up. Not one large open space but a proper bar area with alcoves, all very nice. Staff were excellent, very friendly. Three ales on, but one was DoonBar all the way from Cornishland. An Oxford and Young's Best were the others. Both summer light/golden types. For some strange reason the brewer had John Smith's there as well. WHY. Thatcher's Gold cider also on tap. Food was not the standard menu though there were favourites on it. had the fish and chips and it was good and a fair price. A smashing PH, do visit.

Free Wi-Fi too - which is something which always encourages me to stay in a pub.

I popped in there for the open mic night and had a decent pint of Piledriver. A nice intimate and genuinely old pub.

I popped in here one lunchtime and was the only customer. The surly, chain-smoking tattooed bar man might be a reason. Just a thought...
