We go here regularly whether for food or just drinks but we especially love the Sunday Roast. Beef being my fav but my Son loves the pork belly roast. Always cooked superbly well with all the trimmings and generous portions too. Last visit was Sunday 2nd April for my Sisters Birthday and it was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Went for dinner with my partner and a friend. The staff were very patient with us as we hadn't seen our friend for a long time so it took us ages to order. When we did the staff were very friendly and the food was delicious - as was the Wine and Cocktails! Will definitely visit again if I'm back... More

Initially we visited as a large family party for brunch on Christmas Eve last year. After lots of confusion over what menus to give us we ordered various breakfast dishes. What arrived was really disappointing and under/over cooked. We complained and were given a reduction on our bill. On the way home my wife was called by the manager who... More

Was here for lunch with friends on Saturday. Had the Josper chicken which was very tasty and a very generous portion of food. My friends all seem to enjoy their meals. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Overall a good place to enjoy a meal in Tring.

My son took his mum & dad here a couple of weeks ago. I had expected a typical country pub, but was surprised to find a very contemporary bar/restaurant with a distinctly inner-city ambience. A well-designed interior, staffed by friendly faces, the food offering was to a good standard if a little pricey. The waitress apologised for a rather raucous... More

Our first time here as we were staying with family, the breakfast menu is great, virgin Bloody Mary was lovely and generally good service. Might be a little too relaxed for some (the cycling customers came in smothered in mud and bare footed!) but this didn't bother us. Not cheap but london prices.
