“Great traditional local with good pub grub”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Haven't been here for years, but our recent visit reminded us of what a traditional British pub should be like. A great atmosphere, friendly landlord and great traditional pub grub. The menu offered the usual sandwiches, toasted, jacket potatoes, scampi, lasagne, ham,egg&chips etc. freshly cooked chips...then the usual puddings, filter coffee with refills, good beers.

Great value and unpretentious.
Didn't sit outside, but there is a garden in summer.

“Local Favorite”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

I've been to this pub many times over the years as I'm a local. It is a very popular place and serves a great Sunday roast lunch, as well as many lovely dinner items. It is a small pub run as a family operation, so that must be taken into account. Very good, nearly gourmet, food especially for a place this size. It's certainly worth a try for anyone local, and there are some really lovely walks to start from here to local villages and down the Chess river valley.

“Good food, good value, good atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

In need of a pub lunch near Watford (taking son, daughter and boyfriend out for Sunday lunch) and not being locals, we used the internet to find this delightful, proper, English pub. The food was traditional English fayre, plentiful, with fresh veg and well-cooked (pork crackling superb). The atmosphere in the pub was friendly; the other customers, seemingly locals, were enjoying their meals, too. The ales on offer were also good. We would happily recommend this to anyone seeking a wholesome meal in a traditional setting. Ian E

“Best Sunday Lunch!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We are regular visitors and really enjoy the roast pork on a Sunday. The rhubarb crumble is great too!! The Doom Bar beer is also recommended. All the staff are friendly and even remember to treat our dog with a biscuit each visit! There is a very pretty garden to sit out in.
