About
Welcome to the Goat – a beautiful and historic British pub on the village green at Hertford Heath. If you are looking for a British pub with all the trimmings you have come to the right place. Set in the heart of rural Hertfordshire, we pride ourselves in offering everything a great British pub should; a warm welcome, delicious food, real ales, a beer garden or an open fire (depending on the good old British weather), a classy wine selection and some great gins!

Mum myself and Rosie the dog went to the goat after googling whilst on the road. What a fab friendly and delicious food place we have found. We look forward to sampling more of the lovely food soon. The staff were all very welcoming too.
