“The place to celebrate!”
Review of The Arena Tavern

The Arena Tavern
Ranked #1 of 4 Nightlife in Letchworth
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The Tav has always been the place to go to celebrate - whether it's a birthday, Christmas, New Year or the fact that it's Saturday! The place is full of friendly faces, a great atmosphere and a wide range of drinks on the menu. I love the caricatures on the walls of regular customers and staff and all of the decorations that give the Tav it's cosy feel - it's a place where you will feel right at home on any occasion!

I love this pub, it's a breath of fresh air compared to the chain pubs you Find everywhere now. You always get service with a smile and a warm welcome. The open fire in the winter months makes the pub feel warm and inviting. Highly recommend this pub.

Can't understand the negative review the Tavern is a great place to be, 5 cask ales always available with prices from £2.50 to £3.40 ! how good is that served by attentive friendly staff who have good knowledge about the ales they serve.
The tavern is what the name suggests if you want some upmarket gastro place then this isn't the place for you but if your looking for a good pint good atmosphere and a good time then you will feel more than welcome
Cheers see ya there

Intimate and cosy pub in the heart of Letchworth.

Staff are courteous and attentive and you are always greeted with a smile, roaring open fire during the winter months and an abundance of ales to choose from.

Various theme nights/karaoke organised!

If you are in the area would definitely recommend popping in for a drink (or 2!) in this lovely traditional pub.

This has got to be the worst pub I have ever had the displeasure to stumble into.I have been an alcoholic for thirty years and after going into this pub,I honestly thought I could I could quit drinking.By the time I got served by the lazy lacklustre bar staff I was drier than a nuns .... I read a review that the riffraff were kept out but From my experience of the place the riffraff were drinking in there(but not a lot due to waiting what seemed like an eternity to get served)or were employed by the place.Id rather sit in the rain homeless drinking meths than venture back into that place and by drinking meths you are indulging in a much better beverage and its quicker service from the harware shop.
