“Proper Pub”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

If you don't want a themed sports bar or cheap restaurant chain that happens to sell beer, then the Arena Tavern is for you!
I think 'Paul from Baldock' must have been in a bad mood?! I've always found the staff to be friendly and welcoming, the range of beers is great and always changing, the prices are good too. It's a 'proper' pub which are few and far between these days.

“The place to celebrate!”
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!

“Nice localpub”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

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.

“Great pub !”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

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

“Welcoming and friendly pub...worth a visit!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

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.
