They had three ales on though only one out the ordinary which was drinkable as opposed to good. Not really a pub anymore. It may look like one but I was asked to move across (politely of course) from the 'reserved' table I was at (though still had 10 mins before time on card) so that a young pimple faced couple of teenage brats could have their two pints of coke and order their pizza.

Basic pub with a decent range of ales and very good service from the barman. This was my first visit but I hear the pub has vastly improved since a recent makeover so probably best to ignore old reviews. Very handy for the cinema next door.

Love what's been done to this place, consistently good ales and craft beers, which is enough to make me happy! Have had a few nibbles before going to the cinema and the food was a complete surprise, really quite special.

Yes it's more expensive than spoons buy you'd get what you pay for, good selection and friendly service.

Well its certainly changed, Its had a total character lobotomy! Also prices gone from cheapest in St Albans to highest. Only had one pint and it was OK but too expensive - as was the wine.

Blimey, they have changed this - I can't recognise it from what it was before!
Good range of drinks and a friendly environment. Can't comment personally on the beers too much as I'm a cider drinker (they serve Addlestones - big thumbs up), but others in my group seemed perfectly happy with the choice and quality.

With the cinema opening up right next door I can see this being a nice little regular for a few beers pre and post movie.
