Used to have lunch her but the service became slow and the menu uninspiring. Went early 2017 and it has improved all round, service, menu and food itself so have been eating her regularly since. Nice garden in the warm weather as well.

Fantastic food 😀 service was amazing and I disagree with the previous comments. Wonderful family Sunday roast, good job and a lot of effort put in throughout the team. Keep it up!

Booked for family Sunday lunch. Two lamb shanks fine but two roast pork unacceptable. Agree with previous review, vegetables undercooked and cold. Need for improvement!

No vegetarian Sunday lunch option. When we asked for the meal without the meat we were still charged full price. The vegetables were under cooked and the roast potatoes over cooked and the Yorkshire puddings burnt. Very disappointing.

I have been to this place so many times now and each time I love it! The food is great and the service is so quick! You don't get much table service but if that doesn't bother you then you will love it here. The...More

An excellent evening venue. Lively bustling pub, with well laid out areas that allow for noise to not travel. A good range of "Pub grub" but above average in that it was all excellently cooked - my steak was exceptional. Live music is a regular...More

Going into Ware for the 1st time in my life we were faced with quite a choice mostly pubs and we liked the warmth showing through the window. It's fair sized place and they have avoided the temptation to ram lots of tables and have...More

I have been here on several occasions, sometimes with family over a bank holiday weekend, sometimes with friends for a catch up with a drink and sometimes as a couple for a "I can't be bothered to cook on a Sunday" meal. Although the food...More

Well Hello & thanks for checking us out. We are a Pub in the centre of Ware, Hertfordshire & The Punch House has been here, well for donkeys years. Times have moved on yet we are still doing the same as years ago and selling Beers. We have three real ales and a number of new craft beers, wines & spirits. Our food is a menu made of traditional pub favourites with a few of our own funky twists, just to shake things up a little. Sunday lunch is very popular and we strongly advise you call us in the week to book, yet call us on the day and see if we can squeeze you in. Take a look at our website for a little nosey around!
