Druids, Rickmansworth

One of three, or maybe four, pubs owned by the Druid Pub Co. in Hertfordshire. Located at one end of the High Street next to an M&S food store with handy bus stops nearby. New looking clean building with a good outside seating area. Inside there are a number of TV screens showing sport - the Druid pubs generally have a rugby theme. A few real ales on offer and a good food menu. I suspect it becomes popular with the party crowd on a Friday and Saturday night.

The Harefield, Harefield

I remember this pub as the Kings Head back in the 70's and 80's when I lived in Harefield. It was run by an eccentric old-school guvnor called Bernard who had a habit of not letting people in if they didn't have a tie on. It was then turned into a tacky place called Mad O'Rourke's Pie Shop, then I believe it was taken over again and had it's name changed to Disraelis. It was then the Picke Jar for a while until the current owners turned it back into a proper pub and called it The Harefield. That's the history lesson over but what's it like now. Well I've recently had cause to visit a few times and have been very impressed. It's a clean and tidy pub, well decorated and with efficient and friendly staff. Very much a community pub supporting local charities and residents campaigns. A good menu that includes typical pub grub without going to the extremes of some gastropubs. GBG listed and they have four handpumps. Landlord and Ringwood Bitter were on each time with changing guests that included White Horse Wayland Smithy and Old Hooky. Reasonable prices, especially on Wednesdays when ales are �2.50 all day. I was delighted to see what they have done wirth this oft changed pub and will definitely call in again if I have the chance.

The Queens Head, Uxbridge

Pleasant low-ceilinged pub with an old feel to it and creaky floorboards. There are seating areas at the front with the bar a little further back and a small room to the left at the rear. An impressive range of guest beers were shown on a chalkboard with the presumed intention that this is ticked when they are available. However on both of my visits beers were restricted to Youngs Ordinary, Landlord, 6X and an Adnams. Ate there once and the menu is typical pub grub fayre, reasonably priced and good portions. One of the few remaining unspoilt pubs in the area.
