The BEST pub in Hertford. Attentative bar staff with excellent customer service skills. There is a discount for CAMRA members too. Beers are well kept and constantly changing.

This was the first of 6 Hertford pubs sampled on a Thursday evening and was just about the best. You can do a fairly decent crawl in this town. This particular pub is separated from the main part of the town centre by the town's main road, the A414 and is in aresidential street. It has a couple of small rooms. The larger is the main bar area and there is a smaller area with a dartboard. I didn't notice a TV. So maybe they have taken heed of the last review. Staff and the locals were friendly. There are 6 handpulls. But on this visit, only 4 ales were on - Buntingford 50 Summers & Highwayman, Greene King St Edmunds Ale & Red Squirrel Conservation Ale. Ciders are fetched from the cellar and there were 3 - Gwynt y Ddraig Happy Daze, Lilleys Merry Monkey & Abrahalls Slack Alice. A couple of people were on the Merry Monkey. So I joined in, having not had that one before. Discounts for CAMRA members on ales and ciders are actively offered. I believe this was 10p per pint. But it may have been 20p.

By far the best pub in Hertford, and I travel up from Hoddesdon to visit. Off the beaten track on the way to the often flooded football ground. But a quiet street and a great looking pub. A two room pub with an upstairs garden area which is great in the summer. I think it was five bitter types on tap with English lager and proper cider as well. Plus the usual corporal stuff and the black stuff which according to my cousin is really good as the owner is Irish and looks after it well. Anyway a good traditional pub look from the outside and in. Not large but plenty of seating, fairly good loos, and the best asset of all the staff. A real friendly bunch. The food is a bit on the game side, but the venison lasagne was brilliant. All the food is made here. Discount for CAMRA people. The only draw back is the TV is on all the time. Fine for the footy and rugby (when the place gets packed) but please switch it off when there is no sport worth showing.

Terrific back street local with 6 real ales and its own rugby team. It also sells interesting pasties, such as pheasant pie.
I wish I could remember which ale (something like Full Tilt) I was mostly drinking, but it was extremely palatable. I tried the Morlands bitter which was a bit off. But the bar girl changed it without hesitation. Side Pocket for a Toad from the Tring brewery was also available and an Old Ale from a small brewery in Sussex. Excellent pub, my only complaint being that the music was a bit too loud.

Surprised that there hasn't been more commentary on this remarkably turned around little pub. The guys that have bought it have performed a minor miracle. Wide range of constantly changing beers , some from the pump, some on stillage from the cellar. Personally find the selection a bit too hoppy for me but that's taste. Good basic pub grub - the mini burgers are a good mid-afternoon snack. Now the place to go for football on TV without the tiresome need to slap some little wannabe that you can get in other pubs in town. Overall fine pub, good service, great atmosphere. CAMRA members get a discount on some beers.
